Question about C-Section scar! Omaha, NE

I am a 36 yr old mom of 3 little girls, age 10, 7...

I am a 36 yr old mom of 3 little girls, age 10, 7 and 6. All c sections. I have always had a pooch but after my babies it was more like a flap! I also recently lost almost 100 pounds and I am now 5'8” and 145 pounds and work out a lot but my stomach is a mess! Anyway, after years of going back and forth, i have decided to do it! Where Im nervous? Pain of TT vs c section (which I handled pretty well). Also, Im scared to death the PS will leave me looking like Franken~Tummy. Help anyone with the anxiety!

OMG!!!! My surgery got moved up to the 11th of...

OMG!!!! My surgery got moved up to the 11th of February! My pre op is in 2 weeks! I talked to the doctor today about some of my anxiety and she helped reassure me. So Im feeling better. My only other feeling is guilt! About spending so much money on a very vain thing when I have kiddos. Also, I feel guilty about asking for the needed help for an elective surgery ....boy, I need to get over it! Haha! But I am truly getting excited!

I talked to a friend who had a tummy tuck and she...

I talked to a friend who had a tummy tuck and she said her experience was awful. She had very bad pain and her scar keloided. Has anyone had this?

Hi all. Well, I'm 1 week and 6 days from pre op...

Hi all. Well, I'm 1 week and 6 days from pre op and 4 weeks and 2 days from surgery! I am feeling a lot more relaxed. After years of wanting this surgery, the shock of it coming to fruition sort of shocked me! Anyway, I've spent some time talking to friends who had this surgery and though I've got mixed reviews, most say the same thing: 1. It hurts so be prepared but 2. Its worth it. I think if I go into it with that in mind, I can mentally be prepared. Besides, my husband is amazing! He says if it makes me more confident, he will do all thats necessary to make me feel better about it. I'm a little worried about the post operation depression. Has anyone experienced that? I had a bout of post partum depression after my girls so that is a little scary. I am getting more comfortable and excited. I just want it over with! Also, i have a wedding to go to about 5 weeks after the surgery...do you guys think I will be up to it? I hope! My husband is in the wedding! Wanna be able to wear a hot dress and dance with my jot husband! Haha! So, my last question is what are the "must have" supplies for post surgery? Wanna be prepared to the hilt!!!!! Thanks all! You've all been great!

Sorta had a sad thing today. My 6 yr old daughter...

Sorta had a sad thing today. My 6 yr old daughter was very upset this morning and I asked her what was wrong. She didn't want to tell me at first but then said, with tears, "Momma, I know I've told you to get rid of your belly, but now I'm afraid the doctor is gonna make you dead!". OMG!!! I feel like crap for putting my baby through this unnecessary worry! It took my husband to calm us both down. God love that man! She opened up and we ended up having a whole family discussion with her and my other two daughters. We let them express their worries and ask questions I tried not to scare them with my own worries too much but my heart broke for them. I'm sure they'd rather have a flabby belly mom then none at all! Am I overreacting?!?!

Welp! I just purchased the first of my supplies....

Welp! I just purchased the first of my supplies. Got some comfy clothes and some Tylenol and baby wipes and a various bunch of other things! Buying all this really makes it seem very real and very close! I am 1 week from pre op and less then 4 weeks from surgery. Most of the nerves have subsided into excitement and mental preparation. I am just ready! I know its gonna be a hard road but I'm ready to get it going! I just envision a summer of bikinis and tankinis versus one piece granny suits. I envision cute dresses that dont have a huge bulge in the front. I envision no more rashes and infection under my flap! Ahhhhhhhh! Yep....officially excited!

I have a great hubby!! He bought me a new leather recliner for the living room for after my surgery! He's awesome. So in return I'm doin 10 days worth of freezer meals for him and the kids. Any good suggestions for freezer meals?

I have had three c sections and my vajayjay bulges a little at the top where the scar meets it. Will the TT fix that or make it worse? Do they cut the c section scar out?
