I am a mother of 2 girls ages 6 and 2. I am 25 pre baby I was 125 at 5'7. I delivered at 225+ both times. I am down to 140 and kind of stuck. I have large amounts of skin and stretch marks. I am really worried about going under general...I fear something going wrong. I am also really worried about the tubes being removed and having a 2 year old that is really clingy. I am really excited to have a flat stomach that doesnt hang!!
I had my pre op appt today...the big day is...

I got a cold from my husband the other day and I have been coughing up my lungs and that doesn't feel good! The PS told me that's a good thing that I am coughing. (it doesn't feel like a good thing!) It will keep me from getting pneumonia. I am using an inspirometer to help keep my lungs expanded and clean of fluids which of course causes me to cough most of the time. When I did it pre-op I was able to reach 3500-4000. After Surgery I was at 2250-2750. My PS was surprised at how much I could fill my lungs with air the next day. It honestly is not as hard to breath as I thought it would be. Again I think that has a lot to do with all the cardio I do.
I got to see a picture of what they took off. I will post it if anyone wants to see what it looks like. They removed 1.4 lbs of skin and then 125 from both sides with lipo. Again the lipo doesn't at all bother me. It feels a little tender if something touches it but that's all. I am excited to post the pictures to see what you all think!!
This might be random but my belly button looks...

Anyways I dont have another appt until the 29th or something like that. I did call to see what my Doc said would be good to put on the scar and he told me Bio Oil like I have heard from a few other ladies. So yesterday I got some topical Vit E, and today I got coco butter with Vit E and I ordered Bio Oil from amazon for 8.89. I hope that everything helps because my scar is really red looking.
I was excited today when I got the nerve to step on the scale. I was worried I put on like 5-10lbs but I was 134!! I went to my appt for the tt weighing 137 and two days after I was 139....but today after eating and walking around I was 134!!! So excited I would like to be down to 130 and I am so close!! Ony 10lbs above my pre pre pregnancy weight from when I was 18 lol not to bad. So I guess you can tell I am really excited lol. Its been a long time since I was lighter than my hubby. I hated being larger than he is.
Well I am not sure what else to say. All is well and working like normal but abs are still sore, the scar is still tender on the edges, belly button still not my favorite, I am back into all my clothes, and sleeping normally in bed (I am not a belly sleeper only sides and back). I am ready to workout like normal but I have to wait two more weeks and see what my PS has to say at my appt. I do have swelling but not bad. I will post a pic tomorrow in the morning.
Its been over three months since my TT and I love...

Today at 7:45 I went in for a BA and recieved 550cc's. From what I can tell they are the prefect fit for my body shape! I am excited. However, I am in a little more discomfort that I was with my tt. Mainly because I use my arms for everything and I sleep on my side so its been hard. I was told by my PS that it should feel way better after the first 12hrs. I was really dissappointed with my chest being so flat and I honestly feel I looked so disproportionate and I feel even without having seen them yet it looks so much better from the front and side. Dr. Zilmer seem pretty amazing.
I had my BA done 8 days ago and I am so happy with...
