After having 2 children I am ready to get a little work done on my breasts but I am crazy nervous about it. I am definitely ready to go thru with the operation - decided on silicone 450cc. I was well aware of the complications before the consultation and scheduling the procedure but now that it is finally happening my nerves are sort of stopping me from being excited about it. The surgeon gave me a great vibe and his previous work is beautiful so I am holding on to that for now - just pray everything goes well and hopefully I'll be able to finally like what I see in the mirror.
Soooo - after checking out other posts and...

Decided to put a couple pre-op pics.
Oh btw, I find this helpful for anyone trying to envision body type - I am 5' tall, about 130lbs, 33 years old, 2 kids (10 and 2) and I breast fed both of them. I ended up with deflated and slightly saggy breasts. Love my kids but the body changes that happen after having kids is so depressing.
About two weeks away from 4/8 and not feeling any...

Major seconds thoughts rolling around right now (sigh) thankfully the procedure is paid for otherwise I think at this point I'd have changed my mind. Hate the guilt trips though. Expletive!!!!!!
Countdown to 4/8 - 7 days to go! Have been...

Have been conciously putting the procedure out of my thoughts so as not to freak out too much. Wrapping up at work just now brought up some anxiety though. Still undecided on 450 or 475 even though Doc says the difference is minor. He ordered both sizes so it'll be a game time decision. I really like him btw, he's got a great personality and I feel like I can talk to him for hours about anything.
Bought a couple bras although a blind purchase is never a good idea - picked up a 36D Champion sports bra (Target's selection wasn't good) and a soft lace bra/cami looking thing of the same size. Will post a few more before pics - more for my records I suppose.
Also bought Scarprin gel. I've read a lot of mixed reviews on arnica pills so I'm skipping that - maybe pick up the cream for massage purposes.
Baby's still a clingy little Diva - if its not Mama she'll have a fit :( poor hubby is worried about that too.
Have told a couple girls at work what I'm getting done - they ask if I am doing anything fun on my vacation next week and give me a puzzled look when I say no. Either way, how do you hide a boob job?! Might as well give them a fair warning. Weird having to prep someone for your new "look" - hopefully I'll be spared the questions when I return.
What else?! Oh, I'm kinda sorta happy that the cold weather is taking its time to leave Boston because I'm hoping to hide under a flowy scarf or big sweater when I come back to work - picture a law firm with 3 partners; 2 sexually charged older men (HR personnel nightmare really) and an ultra conservative woman :o\ not fun! Again, how do you hide a boob job. I feel like I'm making a big deal out of nothing but this is like my little diary so I guess its ok to fret.
Whatever - lets get this show on the road already...
Checked in to the Hampton about an hour ago - the...

- Day of treatment
:( any kind of arm movement kills. Hope this gets better cuz I'm dying to see these puppies. Felt a wird gurggly sensation when I scooched up on the couch.
Went with 450cc under the muscle. The less time I spent reading reviews on RS the better I was at choosing the size.
Going to try to sleep cyz my eyes are crossing right ow.
Day 1 post op - still in a good amount of pain....

Sleeping last night was tough - slumped over a few times and woke up with a stiff neck. My shoulders are tight too. Main issue now is bloating. Hoping that Metamucil helps with getting rid of waste. I'm pretty uncomfortable right now :o\ maybe tomorrow I'll have a better update.
Day 2 post-op. Feeling better today as far as pain...

I hate this surgi bra though but the sports bra I bought is too small. Will take more pics after I shower - hopefully that purple marker comes off easily.
My daughter is sick - fever and diarrhea :( Stomach bug is so not what the doctor ordered. Sheesh!!
Day 3 Post Op - today was so-so. Woke up at 7...

My nipples are still sensitive - thank God! A little numbness under the breast near the incision but not bad. The rash is a little bothersome too - which is odd because I've never had a reaction to an undergarment before. I'm thinking it was the reddish stuff they used to clean my skin before surgery which I couldn't wash off til the next day.
What else?! I think the boobs look good - my posture is a bit hunched because I'm babying achy boobs. Hoping the discomfort gets better soon. I honestly was not expecting to be this laid out - yes, its only day 3 but I felt like I could run a marathon after giving birth to my 2 kids so I'm not used to being out of commission. I'm not liking it. Grumpy Girl!!
