I've always had small breasts, Before pregnancy, I was almost in a B cup, after 4 pregnancies, I'm now an A cup on my left, 1/2 an A on my right. I've been wanting implants for years, but have always had the "mommy guilt"- Didn't want to spend that much money on myself. My job- I do THOSE parties ;) - has taught me to appreciate myself and that it is okay to do things for myself.
My husband gave me an envelope for Christmas, inside it had a note telling me to finally get my boobs done.
I'm pretty stoked- My surgery is tomorrow. I'm getting silicone implants, Under the muscle. I have asymmetry going on thanks to scoliosis, so Dr Fiala will be making some final decisions in the OR, but we've agreed on 400-450cc's. I'm not afraid of the surgery, I'm more afraid of what comes afterwards. I've had 3 c-sections, so I'm somewhat familiar with the surgical healing process.. but I have a mind that never stops, and that mommy guilt is kicking back in... all I keep thinking is that I'm throwing money out of the window and it is possible that I might not like how they turn out. But then I think "ANYTHING is better than what I've got!"
I bought myself an outfit and cringed, then I paid for my prescriptions and almost got sick...lol. I have no insurance, and of course the 1st thing that enters my mind is "That could go towards sooo many other things!"
My husband-He's amazing- has told me time and time again to stop stressing. He's helped me prepare by dealing with my need to get the house cleaned and the laundry done, He is taking the next two weeks off work so I won't have to do any unnecessary lifting with the kids (We have a 10 month old baby girl)
I've uploaded a picture, Not happy with it, but then that's the whole reason why I'm getting this done, right?! I've been wanting to write a review for a while and finally got the nerve to do it :) I'll post again after surgery!
I have my boobies! My lifelong dream has come...

I've been pretty out of it...I guess the nurse and my husband had a hard time waking me up to get me into the car, I don't remember much of that..lol.
The car ride home was uneventful, I mostly slept thankfully.
When I got home, Billy laid me down, got everything situated with the kids and again, I don't remember much. I'm really not one for medication. Completely knocks me out! I woke up in the morning and brushed my girls' hair for school, that didn't seem to hurt at all as long as they sat on the floor and I didn't have to raise my arms up. My 10 month old is sick and wants her mommy, so I had to hold her for a little while, but Billy just propped her up on me with a pillow.
Today I've been sleeping mostly. Lots of chicken noodle soup, crackers, and ginger ale- all my go-to comfort foods.
My back, ribs, and neck are killing me. my arms are pretty sore too. my chest feels fine of course...lol.
to keep myself from going crazy I've been trying to do some paperwork on the computer, and falling asleep in the middle of it doesn't help because then I just about have to start all over..lol.
I go back on Tuesday the 26th to get the ace bandage and some sutures removed. Look for my "unveiling" post and pics!! I'm excited!!
My Doctor: Thomas Fiala, MD
I'm am the pickiest person, and I have been looking at different doctors for years. I finally found Dr. Fiala, and fell in love with his work, ratings, and credentials. My consultation with him was great, he answered all of my questions, even the ones I hadn't thought to ask. His office staff really impressed me, and they were great with my son when we came in for the pre-op visit.
