I plan on taking off 2 weeks. Will I be able to fit in my regular clothes after tt?

It kind of depends on what you were wearing prior to your tt, and how big you were to begin with! For me, I had no issues wearing normal clothes after a few weeks, because all along, Ihad been trying to conceal my belly under looses dresses or skirts with leggings and tights. Things with Spandex, like leggings, will expand to accommodate the swelling. However, you will not to able to wear snug fitting jeans or dress pants for, say, at least six or eight weeks in my opinion. I was most comfortable in dresses or long shirts with leggings until the two to three month mark. You will swell upwith activity by the end of the day, and you don't want a tight waistband digging into a sensitive area.

Thank you. I'm going to take the route of dresses. This wound is not healing quickly. I definitely won't make it back in my expected 2 weeks.

I understand. I planned to hardly take any time off and my body had much different plans.
