Goodness ladies - my MM

Should have taken place years ago if I could have afforded it back in the day. Well it didn't , so here I am at 32 ~ and 2 kids later. My oldest will be 16 in may and our youngest is 3. God bless them both but ~ the 16 year old really messed my stomach up! I gained close to 100lbs and then some . Wheeee - that wasn't a good look. So needless to say , the start of me being very insecure about my mid section . To the point of never wearing a bikin / that's for sure !!

So with the second pregnancy I was already stretched out - but I was in great shape an very small. I only gained 25lbs with her, if that. But the skin was still very saggy no matter how hard I worked out after having kids - it just never looked right agian.

 Let me back up a few years - I'm july 2001 I had a BA - saline implants filled to 360cc's. Right after , I knew I should have gone bigger than what I asked for . I had way to much skin to fill out. And honestly 360- wasn't cutting it! But it was a little to late.

So after nursing this last baby for 2 years ... YES that's right , lol ... I said 2 years :-) .. My fake boobies no longer looked like some what perky fake boobs.

So this leads me to my mommy makeover .
Honestly the thought of wearing a bikin this summer, or even shorts that i dont have to constantly check on to see if my bulg is hanging over... Or shirt isn't rising up on me - cause god forbid my stomach show ... Like I can't even imagine this feeling of not freaking out , if my stomach shows . I still cant believe this is really happening .

You would think I would be so excited , but to be honest ~ I'm freaking out! I'm actually very scared. Don't get me wrong I'm ready for a new belly & some nice new boobs- but gezzzee , I'm freaking nerveous !!!

I have to believe this changes your entire look about " your self " ... Your crazy insecurities change quickly into a positive feeling of " I am back to who I know I was made to be"

And of course feeling seXy and confident when my clothes are off plays a big part in this - let's just keep it very real :)

Now, this website - of this website ;-) It's truly been a God sent . So incredibly helpful - a wealth of knowledge and preparation from the woman who have been through what I'm feeling - and then some . I have learned so much , and enjoyed hearing about the Good , the bad & th ugly~ about all that can possibly happen during this Time.

Most important ~ the site provides TRUTH & INSiGHT about what can happen. The pictures have been so helpful to me - being as though I'm so visual , it's made this process easier in me making my final decision to do this!!

So good luck to all - and thank you so much for Sharing your stories & experiences ... Cause otherwise , I'm not sure I Would be going through with this next tue.

So for all that - this leads me to APRIL 26th!

Slept a long tome this morning .. I needed it though.

I made it to the hair salon today :) yay!!! It was a much needed wash & blow dry that's For sure .

Swollen pretty bad today , I suppose we will have our good days and bad.

Still not standing up straight but hopefully that's right around the corner .. Or I pray it is!!

Looking good. What is ur tattoo of? The pic is kinda blurry so I can't tell it looks like an arrow pointing up. If that's it it is cracking me up. Hope tomarrow u feel better

I never noticed I didn't see your pics before. I LOVE those yellow panties with the cheetah/leopard print!

You are going to look amazing when all is done. I was looking at some boob progression pics/videos and some women, especially those with bigger implants, took about 60 plus days before it looked great and 1 year they looked smokin!

My PS had me practice deep breathing to overcome the discomfort standing. I also laid with a slight angle and would pull my legs up indian-style or and maybe that helped 'stretch' me out.

You look fabulous..even with swelling!! Don't worry it does go away. I noticed a huge difference about 6 weeks out. Then when you start to work out at 6 weeks you might notice swelling....but now at 2 months I hardly wear my spanx and have very minimal swelling. So it gets better girl!!

Awe thank u !!
You know I'm actually concerned about my right side where he did lipo... It's alot more swollen then the other .
It's like one side is curvy as the other isn't ..

I was also noticing you have really great legs...what kind of exercise do you do?
I've always been muscular built but since having kids and most of them close together it's been hard to stay as motivated. With my twin pregnancy I had to take it really easy and lost a good bit of my tone. But you really do have nice legs...any suggestions would be great! :)

I am a 34DDD but can fit into some DD from Victoria Secret..also what type of workout routine are you doing? Your body looks awesome and I want to look more toned like you! I am going to my PS in 3 weeks for my (at that time 6 months) post op checkup and want to talk to him about quotes for some lipo on my thigh and butt area!!! Cant seem to get that area worked (doesnt help that I dont like lunges and squats..hehe) but i dont want them bigger just want to get rid of the giggle!! ttyl girl!

I'm curious how tall you are and how many CC's you have, I think your tata's look fantastic. I'm having implant replacement/ lift on March 13th and yours look ideal……. however I'm 5'6 and if your taller or shorter the size you have would make a difference on me. Thanks
