10 Days and So Nervous - Minnesota

I'm 36 years old with 3 children. 3 c-sections and two of them were 20 months apart. I was fine and could have lived with my stomach after my 2nd child but the 3rd did me in. No matter how much I work out it is gross and flabby.

I am 5'4" and 150 lbs which is still about 20 lbs over my normal weight so I'm super nervous that I might be doing this too early and should lose some more. I've seen some cases where people have lost weight after and it still looks great but I'm just nervous I'm still too fat to do it and for it to look good.

4 more days! Had my pre op today....feeling more calm now. I've attached two photos of the "beast" known as my stomach.

OMG tomorrow morning at 6:30 am I check in for my surgery. I just said good-night to my 3 kids and I am a basketcase. For some reason saying good-night to them was so hard for me.

I DID IT!!!!!! Woohoo!
Procedure took about 2 hours and they removed THREE lbs of icky stomach!
I came out of the fog ok and felt decent just very tired. We came home and I have been camped out on the lazy boy ever since.
Walking hurts big time right now but I hope it feels better as the days go on.
I have an appt with the PS tomorrow at 12:45

I'm two days out and feeling way better than yesterday! Took a shower today and that felt great!

I got my drain out today! Woo-hoo! That felt VERY odd but not as painful as I thought. However my one drain was on the side and not on the pubic area.

5 days out and haven't had to take any meds for 2 days and feel great. Actually the thing that is bugging me most is my lower back from sleeping odd and being in this binder garment.

I went shopping today at Target and Costco (that place is a mad house on Saturday's and I thought for sure I would get hit by a cart) I played with my kids the best I could and I even busted out the vacuum (gasp!)I am so happy considering on Tuesday the day after the procedure I thought WTH was I thinking the pain was harsh.

Ok I know this sounds REALLY stupid and I'm beginning to think that something can't be right but I feel GREAT! and I have since day 5 post op. My swelling isn't too bad and I am not tired.

I am on day 8 post op and am wondering if anyone else has felt good this early on or am I just a total freak!?! Granted I go back to work next week so I know I will probably be laughing at this post next week when I am dying. :)

First day back at work. I must admit I'm pretty tired and its not even 5 pm. I feel fine otherwise besides the swelling that makes me look rather puffy in the middle.

I was getting used to sleeping in till 10 am :) and having my husband do everything with the 3 kids. Back to reality.

Well tomorrow marks 3 weeks since my TT. I...

Well tomorrow marks 3 weeks since my TT.

I feel great except I itch like crazy around my scar. I have these little red bumps around my scar and down around my pubes and its driving me nuts. Has anyone else had these?

I posted some updated photos.
