Is this wishful thinking...

I have been frequenting this site for months but just now decide to post.  I am 32 weeks pregnant with 3rd child.  I am 5'6 and weigh 215.  I have put on a lot of weight during this pregnancy.  I had a consultation months ago (before I found out I was pregnant again) and decided on full tummy tuck, liposuction, and breast augmentation with lift.  The surgeon at the time said I was a good candidate.  I weight around 180 then.  Anyway, is it unrealistic to plan on having to surgery in May or June with so much weight to lose?  I am due in January.  Has anyone had luck with quick weight loss followed by surgery.  Have your results been favorable?  Any input would be great.  I have already paid $4000 towards my $12,000 surgery.  Thank you.

You are SERIOUS! I like it. I can tell you that I've heard this: 9 months up and 9 months down. Meaning 9 months to put on all the weight of pregnancy and 9 months to lose it. That said, I lost my quicker. Breast feeding was a huge advantage. I have friends who've had good luck post-pregnancy with weight watchers.

Good luck and please keep us posted!

Thanks for the reply. I won't be breast feeding because I have medications to resume after the baby. I had a lot of weight loss success, just prior to finding out I was pregnant. I am glad to hear that you lost your weight a bit quicker. It gives me hope :)
