3 weeks PO with pictures! Anyone else gain NEW stretch marks?

Hi, I am having a TT done tomorrow. I am extremely nervous! I am 24 and had two children. I was never heavy my entire life, until I had my son. I blew up like a balloon! I gained 70 pounds with my first and learned my lesson with my second...only gaining 15 pounds! I am a workout junkie now and do Crossfit 4 x week. I have worked very hard and found my stomach was just getting worse with the weight I have been loosing.

I am down to my goal weight and would like to get rid of my old lady skin I call it LOL I can cover it up well in clothes, but I would never parade in a bathing suit, which is something I would love to!

Any suggestions for recovery with a 4 month old and a 2 and a half year old?

So 6 days PO. I am nervous if I'm doing too much...

So 6 days PO. I am nervous if I'm doing too much and will help out and then sit. I just am scared I could ruin my result. I squat down if really needed to pick something up and use my legs to come up. I still find it hard to get in and out of bed without using muscles at all...but try each time. If I was ruining my result or opening stitches up...would I know?

I still have the drains in...can't shower still...and wear my compression garmet 24:7. I don't go back to the dr until next week. I want to try to go In this week. I'm scared that I'm over doing it even though I feel fine!

I was having some irritation with the gamet and...

I was having some irritation with the gamet and the dr told me to put gauze by where it's rubbing. I noticed my belly button was so swollen it looked like a big califlower ear! Is this normal?

Day 7 PO still not walking straight but some pain....

Day 7 PO still not walking straight but some pain. I'm still upset with my belly button that I don't even want to look at my stomach anymore. Can't wait to go back to my PS this week.

Well today is day 8. Work up and so far no pain...

Well today is day 8. Work up and so far no pain medicine needed! Going to see my PS today. Still have drains in and will update with a picture this afternoon.

So I am 9 days PO and I'm just feeling so down...

So I am 9 days PO and I'm just feeling so down this week. I kept comparing recovery to my c sections, which were okay for me. This is really hard. My new stomach just feels so weird at touch that I don't even want to touch it. I'm still upset with my belly button being the way it is. I'm walking straighter and doing so without pain medicine...but I just want to feel better and feel like myself again. I sort of feel like why did I do this to myself? I'm hoping next week I feel better :(

So today marks three weeks. I am feel better but...

So today marks three weeks. I am feel better but still some times begin to feel depressed with my stomach. Some days I'm happy and some I think why did I do this.

However, at three weeks I'm moving around okay and taking care of my house. Girdle is on for 8 hours of the day. But, I feel swollen and when I sit now I notice a little bulge that was never there. I'm hoping it is just swelling and my stomach will look flatter as it decreases.

So I just noticed today I Have fresh new stretch...

So I just noticed today I Have fresh new stretch marks. I never in thought to think if I would gain any from the stretching of the skin. Between swelling hell and now this...I can't win! Can't wait for things to start looking better and I can work out again.
