I am 28 years old and I have 2 children! My first was 9lbs 3 oz and left me with tons of loose skin and stretch marks on my tummy. I work out 2-3 days a week and I weigh 115lbs and I'm 5'3". The rest of my body looks great except for my tummy!
I went to a doctor about my outie belly button and found out it was an umbilical hernia! I was so suprised! So I decided to see if my insurance would help out and pay to get it fixed while I get a full Tummy Tuck!! It worked!! Yay!! I went to my consultation and loved him and he referred me to a general surgeon for the hernia!
I just booked my date for May 5th! I wanted it to be way sooner but oh well! :)I am so excited!!! I hope the time goes by fast! I thank you all for all your posts I feel like I am going to be very prepared for what to expect in the future!
9 days left, I can't wait! I want my pre-baby...

Happy mothers day!!
So far so good, I slept great last night. I am draining my drains every 12 hours and they are about 50cc's. I am still taking percuset every 5 hours but I think I'm going to try and switch to Tylenol this afternoon. Still no BM :( I have been taking the powdered fiber stuff so hopfully today I will have a BM :) The drains are not bothering me too much but I can't wait to get them out. I have an appt with the PS tomorrow at 10:30 to get my pain pump removed and change my dressings! I'm so excited to get a better look at my new tummy! I can stand up alot straighter today which is wonderful cause my back is already sore. I am still spending most of my day sitting or laying down and I'm taking laps around my house every few hours. That's about it for me! I'll keep you guys posted on anything new! I hope everyone is having a great Mothers Day!!

Good morning everyone! I am feeling really great! I have more energy and I am getting around really good! I can almost stand up straight but the PS told me not to until they see me next time to give the okay. They took put my pain pump and 1 drain on day 4 and they want me to call them today to see how much I am producing! I am happy to report only 10cc for every 12 hours:) so I'm hoping to get it out today or tomorrow!! Yay the lack of showering is really starting to drive me crazy!! My PS won't let me shower until 3 days after the drains are out. I think that's crazy but I'm doing what he wants. Lol other thank that I an doing great! I'm still just laying down or sitting on the couch... My Mom is here doing everything with the kids and for the house so it has been amazing! I think that's why I'm doing so well:) I hope everyone is doing well!

Good morning everyone:) I am 12 days PO, I am drain free and I feel amazing! I am still limiting my activity because I don't want to cause extra swelling, I haven't even gone to the store yet! Crazy:) I am able to stand up straight but when I start walking faster I lean forward:( I need to work on that. I still have tape over my scar so I'm hopping the next visit to the PS I'll see my scar, I hope it is healing okay! I am wearing my binder 24 hours a day and it's not bugging me too much! My PS wants me to wear it for 4 weeks straight:( Other than that I'm just eating as healthy as possible with little to no salt and hoping to be back to normal size and activity soon!! Happy healing everyone:)
Day 16, I feel great! I am not in any pain at all...
