I'm 23 years old and have two children. Before I got pregnant i weighed 120,I gave birth at 180. I went down to 165 than got pregnant and went up to 175. I now weigh 150.

I have lots of sagging skin in the front of my stomach and huge love handles. I'm very excited to have this surgery done.

I had kids very young and I have never even been able to wear a bikini if i wanted too :( My daughter just turned a year old so she is still very dependent on me. I just hope I'm making the right desicsion to do it so soon after her first birthday.

Ladies, Did it cost more to have a pain pump? I'm really thiking about requesting one! And how well did it work?

On Friday the 19th I had my last pre op apt! I paid everything in full! Now there is no turning back! Now i just have to get this house spotless, stock up on food and items for around the house. Only 8 more days to go!

I'm starting to have a hard time sleeping at night...

I'm starting to have a hard time sleeping at night. I dont know if its because I'm constantly thinking about the surgrey. The goods and the bads. I wish my mine would just shut down lol. Well all i need to do now is just fill my prescriptions. one week from today I will be a new (hopefully hot) momma :)

Last night I finally told my MIL about the surgrey...

Last night I finally told my MIL about the surgrey and to my surprised she was more excited than me LOL! I expected a diff reaction thats why i waited so long to tell her. She is even going to take my daughter for the week so I can relax and focus on healing. That was alot of weight lifted off my shoulders. I have full support from my close ones and my baby girl will be well taken care of (my main concern since she is so little)

Also My nurse called me today, I go in to sugrey at 8:30 am on tuesday! She gave me instructions on DOs and Donts. I really like my PS's staff they are very nice and easy to talk to.

Now i really need to get this house spotless. I feel like i start cleaning and bam there is my daughter right behind me throwing things back where they were. My son on the other hand is such a good helper, I dont know what i would do without him. I do have a question ladies, What should i wear the day of surgrey?

Finally finished cleaning the house from top to...

Finally finished cleaning the house from top to bottom. Every single piece of clothing is washed. Lets see how long my house will stay clean. Days are starting to feel like they are dragging.

i fell asleep kinda early tonight (with help of a sleep aid) some how i woke up and cant go back to sleeep :( i'm frustrated because i dont want to be up but i cant stop thinking! ugh! 6 more hours! I am soooo nervous its crazy. I just pray everything turns out good. I will post as soon as i can!

DAY 1

I woke up and had to use the restroom. OH crap it hurt like hell! I would say today is def a different day i feel more pain. I kinda feel like something ran over my chest! I hate these drains only because i accidently pulled at one and it stung! My amazing husband has been keeping up with my medicine. He pulled out my sons twin mattress and laid it on the floor next to my recliner! i was impressed. he went way beyond my expectations as a caretaker.
Today i have my first post op apt at 130. hopefully i can see something! my PS and his staff were amazing! I will update later my hands are the only thing that i can use right now ;(

Day 3

I finally took a shower today! Oh i feel so clean! My husband put a folding chair in the shower and washed my hair and body! I couldnt feel more thankful! My cousin helped me dressed in put my hair in french braids.Right now I feel like the support I'm recieving is helping me heal.

I finally saw my tummy and where my scar is and i couldnt be happier! My sides are swollen really bad and kinda above my belly button. Its barely day 3 and my stomach looks great! My girls are looking nice. I end up going with 400ccs saline under muscle i will post pics

Day 5

I'm feeling good today. I still feel sore maybe a 4/10. I havent taken any pain med today. I hate my binder at this point cause of all my swellling. I cant wait to get these drains out they are annoying. I'm really scared they are going to hurt! I still havent had a BM. I feel like i have to go but nothing. I cant wait until i can stand up straight again

Lubbock Plastic Surgeon

Eric Minns and his staff are amazing! I couldn't be happier with my results so far! I am so glad i choose him to be my PS. He always answered all my questions and never rushed me. I highly recommend him!
