The Twins have arrived!!!

Hello, I am 38, female, 5'11", 153lbs,...

Hello, I am 38, female, 5'11", 153lbs, mother of three and husband of one and work full time. I have scheduled my surgery for March 20th, 2012 and I am really excited and cannot wait! I selected Dr Justin Jones due to his reputation and amazing results. He has a great bedside manner and made me feel comfortable throughout the consultation. I have decided to go with 450cc due to my height and bone structure. I am currently an A (sadly I thought I was at least a B). While breast feeding I was a D and feel comfortable going to that size. I have been considering breast augmentation for more than 8 years. In 2006 I had a tummy tuck that had me too scared to go back under the knife. It left me with an offset belly button and bad scarring (different doc). Dr Jones is going to revise my scarring and move my belly button over for a nominal fee. I am really excited about that!! I am taking 1 week off to recover and my kiddies will be my nurses!! Only 56 days to go!!! I will post again soon!

48 days to go....feels like forever :(. I have read some great tips from Mackenzie. Bought the sports bra she recommended and am gonna get some comfy socks and satin jammies. Hopefully my regular yoga training will help with my recovery.

46 days to go, I called the office today to see if I can schedule sooner (feb 16) so far they are fully booked but then have me on wait list. Waiting is driving me nuts!! Lol
I purchased some silk button up night shirts (I decided against PJ's because I am having my TT scar revised) from www.softsurroundings.com, they have them in talls so that was great! (i am 5'11") They are also on sale! Yay for me!

I am totally bored and decided to do the rice test to feel out what 500cc would be like (I have only tried 450cc at office). Its not so bad, except rice is heavy!! lol I bit lumpy coz its rice, my chest feels tight with this sports bra on!! Guess I will need to get used to it eh?

OMG!!! I am so excited!! My surgery got...

OMG!!! I am so excited!! My surgery got rescheduled for Feb 16th!!! Yay!!! Only 1 week and 1 day to go!!!
Oh and I resized today, I am going with Mentor silicone high profile 450cc (or 500cc if he thinks he can fit them)

So it's Friday, yay for the weekend!!! As my surgery is next Friday I have a busy weekend!! Gotta clean my house (ug), get a mani/pedi, wax, shave (TMI!!!) and basically prepare for the recovery phase. I am so excited but nervous, but mostly excited!!! I am taking 5 days off work and then when I return I only work two days before its the weekend again. I think that will really help my recovery. I have a desk job so no lifting or standing, but lots of typing!!

Next Thursday not Friday

Cleaning the house....I am pretty lazy with cleaning, I really have to be in the mood. It's looking good though. I am washing my bras/clothes I will be wearing and basically preparing the house for my recovery. I am really excited!!! Only 4 more sleeps to go!!

Hey everyone, so it's the eve of my surgery, I...

Hey everyone, so it's the eve of my surgery, I cannot wait!!! I was totally watching the clock today and could not wait to leave!! Tonight was my last night of yoga for awhile.... I will really miss it!! I hope it has prepared me some for my recovery. Think of me tomorrow at 11:45am (CST)!!!
I have washed my bras, PJ's, my outfit for tomorrow so I am all set. I bought extra stuff (face wipes, socks etc) so I think I will be good to go. I am going to watch all my Twilight DVDs and read on my IPad to pass the time. I am off work for 5 days, work for 2 then off for the weekend so that should help. My kids are adjusting better, in fact my 13 yo is going to come with us to the surgery (she was totally against the idea at first) so I am proud of her!
I am going to take a shower then try some clothes on as my preoutfits so I can use them as comparison afterwards.
Everyone I have told are really supportive, that really helps even though I am doing this for myself, it feels good to have support. In yoga the other night my instructor was saying to not try to become perfect but be whole, and that is what I am striving for, to be whole. I am sure many of you can relate to that!!
Well that is it for now, not sure if I will do videos, but I will definitely share my progress, I will not have a pain pump so I want to give the girls another version of recovery from Makenzie (love you girl!!)

Alrighty!! It's just under 2 hours until surgery, I am nervous but excited more than anything!
I posted a video, if you notice there is a slight accent, I am originally from Australia but been here in the U.S. for 16 years.

Just arrived home, all is well, sleepy from Percocet! Talk later

Hi everyone!! So it's the next day after...

Hi everyone!!

So it's the next day after surgery (17th) and I just woke from a nap and was alarmed at the time (1:52pm) because I had thought I missed my post-op appt! So after my husband talked me off the ledge, I realized that yes, I did go see him this morning!!! Drugs I guess! My doc wants me to decrease to 1 Percocet each time instead of 2. I have to take my Zofran like every 4-5 hours because I am still experiencing nausea. After the surgery yesterday I walked out to the car and promptly threw up all the 7-up and water I had drank in recovery. Then on the way home I threw up in the car (we had a container) my daughter didn't even complain (I love her so!) the nurse got me a script for transderm-scop - that patch you put behind you ear for motion sickness, we haven't filled it yet but they are good to have. She thinks it's a reaction to the anesthesia.
I zipped off my bra today and holy cow!!! I got me some nice boobies!!!!! The cleavage is awesome! I cannot wait to take pics!
I should be resting right now because of the lack of sleep I have had over the past 24 hours, but I wanted to keep my peeps in the know!!!
I have my videos but I will need the hubs to upload them, I am tech challenged, the one that is up is all his doing!!

Ahhh had my first shower, but geez it took all my...

Ahhh had my first shower, but geez it took all my strength!! The hubs showered with me, but a few times I had to squat from the dizziness. So now I am back in the bed, taken a Percocet and reading on my IPad. I really want to get out and about but I know my limits, it's just kinda frustrating to be so dependent in resting.
My recovery will be somewhat different from everyone else because I also had my tummy tuck scar revised. Actually I think that is worse than the boobs! (I may have already mentioned that before!!)
I wanted to do a video tonight but I am just too exhausted after the shower, so maybe tomorrow.
I just finished reading Hunger Games, it was great! Can't wait to start on the next one!
Well that's it for now, I have a craving for mushroom risotto..... Lol

I woke up this morning with some back pain but...

I woke up this morning with some back pain but after walking around I feel SOOO much better!! I stopped taking Percocet yesterday and am just taking a Lortab every 6 hours or so. I finally feel "with it", I do not want to get into bed again! I think today I will go to the mall or something, just to get out of the house. I would love to walk around the neighborhood, but its currently 37 degrees, too cold!!
My tummy feels great and the pressure around my boobs is not annoying anymore! I was starting to feel down yesterday thinking I would never get to feeling better!
I was going to take a shower by myself, but I think I will wait until my hubbie is up, just for backup.
Hope everyone else is doing great.

Feeling quite swollen today, my right breast hurts more than the left, it is the one with the larger implant. I am taking 800mg Ibuprofen every 8 hours for inflammation/pain. Right now I have a heat pack on them to help reduce the swelling. I am doing massages, but can only do the massages on the top. I go to see my PS tomorrow for my 1 week follow up. I go back to work Thursday, my back hurts from bending over (due to the tummy scar revision). I need a massage!

Had my 1 week visit with PS today. He said everything looks great! My shape is perfect, he showed me the rest of the exercises, 10 reps, three times a day. He said I was doing all the right things for the swelling (ibuprofen and ice pack). He will see me again in 2 weeks.
Back to work tomorrow!
I included a few extra pics of me in a Gap Cami - my PS said I can just wear that if I want seeing it has a shelf bra in it. YAY! They are super comfortable!!

Yesterday I felt almost 100% better, my tummy area...

Yesterday I felt almost 100% better, my tummy area was great (no pain) my back didn't hurt and I was walking upright to no strain. (the first week I was walking hunched over some to allow the tummy incision to adhere better). My boobs are the only thing that is affecting me right now, swelling/tightness. Oh and the HIGHLY sensitive nips! OMG! I have band aids over them because it hurts when the bra or cami rubs up against them. They are also on constant high beam so that is probably the reason they are so sensitive!
I am back to wearing regular pants (swelling from tummy incision) which is fantastic!!! I had to wear yoga pants (not tight ones) to work. We went out to dinner last night and I wore my jeans and I was so excited!!!

Hi everyone!! 12 days out and feeling great!! I...

Hi everyone!! 12 days out and feeling great!! I still have some tenderness around the sides of the boobs and the nipple region is WAY off limits!! I have to wear band aids to reduce the irritation. I took the surgi-strip off my belly and I have to say he did a GREAT job fixing the "hack" job the previous PS did!! It's a nice thin line (previously it was up to an inch in width). I am so happy with the results!!
The girls are slowing dropping, "how do I know that?" well the surgi-strip is starting to be hidden by the bottom of the boobs. I have nice cleavage, even though they are still high up they do not look like 2 coconuts stuck on my chest.
I go back to the PS on March 7th, probably will get my stitches removed. I didn't know they were not dissolvable until I took the surgi-strip off!!
I am starting to fall in love with my boobs!! Its was not love at first sight, I am big enough to admit it! The pain/swelling was outweighing anything else, but now they are settling they are taking on a great shape!
Trying on clothes is lots of fun, I rock just about every outfit I put on!!

Happy 2 week birthday to my twins, Sandy and Candy!!! I love you more and more each day!!!!

Happy 3 week birthday to my twins, Sandy and Candy!!! Doing great, swelling has subsided and dropping more each day. Went to see my PS yesterday, he said everything looks great, the shape is excellent and in no time I will be ready for the beach!!! YAY!! I go back in one month.

HAPPY 1 month birthday to Sandy and Candy!! Everything is looking great, hardly any pain or uncomfortableness. Will post pics soon!!

6 weeks today!!! I am so excited! I went to yoga and had a great workout. Its been frustrating not being able to do a full workout! I feel flabby and fat!!
I looked at the girls tonight and saw my left one has dropped into place (yay) but the right is still sitting up higher. I cannot wait for it to drop!!
I am going to wear my new lacy bra (no pushup/padding!!)
This procedure is not for the faint of heart! It's been a long journey and I am not done yet!! I will post pics soon.
Hope everyone is doing well!

Hi everyone!!!
Wow it feels like forever since I have been on here. Since my 6 week checkup I have been working out furiously trying to catch up from the 6 week recovery!!! I am working out daily (Bootcamp, yoga, BodyPump, kickboxing, Zumba) basically anything I can do to get back in shape!! The "girls" set me back physically but I am working well with them now. I do not even feel I have had implants they feel that natural!!!
I saw my PS on Wednesday, everything is great! My left side implant has some muscle distortion due to being left dominant, but he said to wait it out a bit as I will keep changing in the next 9 months. Basically my left pec muscle is stronger than my right so it pulls the implant up a bit more when I flex. Apparently it happens to ~75% of women that are very active and get sub muscular implants. I will post some new pics too!
Later!

So just had my surgery yesterday, but it feels like it was just hours ago!!! Everything went smoothly, love everyone at the office, very professional and caring.
