I first want to start by saying thank you to all who have written reviews, posted pics, and shared their stories. Your experiences have educated me in so many ways. So, thank you!!
Ok, so here I am. Starting my journey... I am a stay-at-home mom of an amazing 21mth old daughter. She makes me laugh and melts my heart every day. She is my Miracle Child. :) I also have a 15 (almost 16) year old son who, unfortunately lives with his dad (my first husband) in another state. :( He is an amazing, smart, funny, respectful teenager. I am SO proud to call him my son. He is my Golden Child. :) I know what you are thinking..."wow, she spaced them out!" LOL Not intentionally, as both were surprises. But I am so very glad they are mine. :) Ok, so...
Pregnancies and stats... I am 37 (will be 38 at the time of my MM) and 5'7". Before my son, I was 117lbs and a small 32B. During my pregnancy with my son, I gained 60lbs and nursed with 34Ds. Over the following 14 years I was only able to get back to 135 and 34B. During my pregnancy with my daughter, I gained 40lbs and nursed with 38DDs! I am currently 160ish with very saggy 36Cs. I have a tummy pouch I refer to as my "baby blubber" that drives my crazy!!! I have been wanting a MM FOREVER!!! Well, the time has come!!! :)
My goals are to: 1. Lose the baby blubber (I can't remember the last time I had a flat tummy.) and 2. Lift "the girls" and maybe add a little volume to them while we are at it. To stay a 36C would be perfect! :) But highly unlikely with all the sagginess.
My concerns: Only one really... Should I get just a BL and risk going smaller (36Bish)? Or should I go for a BL with a small implant to achieve the fullness and firmness that I lack (36Dish)? Honestly I am not crazy about putting a foreign objects in my body. But... I have had one consultation now and I have another one tomorrow. I really like the first PS I met with. Dr. J. I feel comfortable with him and feel his is quite capable. He recommends a BL with a small silicone implant under the muscle resulting in a 36D. I am very excited to hear what're second PS, Dr. D, has to say tomorrow.
Either way, tomorrow afternoon, I plan on making my doctor choice, putting down my deposit, and scheduling my surgery for March 22nd or 23rd. The reason so soon and so quickly is because of scheduling issues. Ready for this!? First, my husband travels a lot for work. Very spur of the moment most of the time. I have had to make sure he can be home to help take care of our daughter. Second, I am flying my MIL in to solely take care of my daughter for my first 6 days of recovery. I have had to work with her availability. (My husband plans on taking 2 days off after my MIL leaves, to take care of our daughter. Giving me a total of 8 days of child care.) Third, my son is coming to visit for spring break the second week in April and I don't want to be completely out of it while he is visiting. And last, I have a bachlorette party in Vegas, May 11-13, that I would like to be able to be as recovered as possible so I can enjoy myself. CRAZY!?!? I know. So... Any advice, suggestions, recommendations you ladies can help me with? I greatly appreciate your support.
