_Scheduled TT For May 23rd 2011_Very Nervous! - California

I am 25 & have two daughters. When I had my first baby who is now 4 I was able to lose most of my weight very fast. I weighed 130 pounds before I got pregnant & 200 pounds when I gave birth. By the time she was one I already lost 70 pounds. My husband & I decided to have another baby during the time we trying I gained 50 pounds back & then found out I was pregnant when I gave birth to my second baby who is 13 months now I weighed 220 pounds. Now I can't get any lower then 185 pounds no matter how hard I try & I'm sick of living in this body. I am really sad when I try & shop because nothing I like fits. I litterally still where maternity pants I kinda have small legs & a huge tummy now I just hate it!

I talked to my husband about getting a TT & started to research it & really liked what I saw. So I went into see a Dr. in the Sacramento area & thought this is def. for me. I am now scheduled for my surgery In less then 3 weeks & am beyond nervous of it all getting put under the pain & the over all recovery because I am also getting breast augmentation. I have been obsessed with looking at before & after pictures. Any advise would be great!

I could only seem to get one picture up. I will post more soon!

Thank you for the comments girls! It is getting so much closer & I am getting so much more nervous. It also almost seems unreal. I wonder when it will really hit me that I am really going to finally do this.
Well I have been looking for a lift chair & they are not cheap! I wish I knew somebody with one because I think I will only need it for a couple of weeks & all the girls that have already had their TT say they recommend a lift chair.
This isn't going to be an easy recovery but im so glad I have all you women to share my journey with. =)
I posted a few more before pictures cant wait to see the afters!

It has been a week since my surgery & wow I...

It has been a week since my surgery & wow I made it! It has been a long hard week for me & lots of pain but I've been okay. I have uploaded more pictures for you girls to see but will upload a new one soon seeing that these are all within the first 3 days! Love you all & thanks for the support!

Hey dear!
I know right! I was just talking to my husband bout that! Its seemed like just the other day I was complaining how much longer I was going to have to wait and now its already almost here! Lol. I'm also super nervous too but just think about our bikini bodies afterwards. =) only a week left. What did you buy for your post-op supplies? I've bought.... some blue underpads to cover my recliner, straws, vitaamin e oil, dial, disinfecting wipes, gloves, extra strength tylonel, hand sanitizer, neck pillow.... and I think more but can't think of it on the top of my head right now. Im so worried I'm forgetting something. Definitely keep me posted! I'm so glad we're so close in date! And we can heal together!!! Yay!

Hi Melissa and welcome to RealSelf. I have a FTT with MR & BA booked for May 27th so am going through most of the same feelings as you. I am a mum of two but mine are much older (17&19) I am 42. I am very excited to be finally getting this done as I soooo wish I could have done it at your age. So go for it girl and don't look back, you will be fine. I am only 4 days after you so good luck and keep posting updates on here so we can all keep supporting you.

Thank you so much for your comment it was very encouraging. When do you go for your pre op? Mine is on Tuesday.

You will be fine.  It is amazing what they are able to do with the tummies.  Just getting the extra skin and fat off makes a big difference.  You will be amazed. 

Once you are done and healed you can start an exercise routine/program and fine tune the body.  We are all just works in progress and it takes time.  Looking at your picture you don't look like a big person at all. 

We all just had these mommy tummies that won't go away on their own...just need a little help from Dr. Magic Hands.

Hey Girl!

Welcome to RealSelf!  Thank you for sharing your story here on the site. 

We will all be here to support you through your journey.  I think it is wonderful that you are doing this for yourself.  You will feel so much better and get the confidence boost you need. 

Those babies take a toll on our bodies..LOL  Little darlings :)  Now it is time for mom to take her body back and remove the muffin top.   The first time you are standing and can actually see your business without lifting the tummy...Ahhh.  You will want to jump with excitement.  But be careful...it hurts to do that kind of movement for a few weeks. 

I look forward to reading your posts in the weeks to come.  Keep us updated.
