Loving my new boobies - Phoenix, AZ

I'm 29yrs old and have 5 kids ages 7 down to 12 month old twins. I've nursed all of them and have deflated boobies because of it. I'm scheduled for next Friday to get my new additions put in. And I'm so excited. But I'm nervous because of my babies. Will I be able to hold them and still be the mommy they deserve? I know that it takes time to recover, but how long until I should feel like myself again? I've had a c- section and a hysterectomy so I think I should be able to handle the pain. I'm just worried about messing something up by taking care of my kids. I'm getting natrelle style 20 550cc. right now I'm a 34 a/b depending on the bra and 5'6 130lbs.

Here is a link from our Help Center on how to post photos.

You are one busy mommy, but as long as you have some help during recovery, you can probably swing it. Although, it's important not to lift anything heavy for a while. Here is a link to our RealSelf Doctor Q&A that might give you a better idea of recovery time after a breast augmentation. Let us know how the surgery goes!!

Tomorrow's the big day. I have to be at the surgery center at 9am, but we live 3 1/2 hours away and that's without traffic. It's gonna be an early morning. I'm getting pretty nervous but I'm really excited at the same time. I've got alot to get done today so hopefully it'll keep my mind busy.

I only have internet on my phone so I can't post pics.

I will PM you about emailing me directly with your photos. Unfortunately, photos can only be uploaded from desktop computers, iPads and iPhones at this point in time. Plan on lots of "quiet/gentle time" with your children...as my mommy will have a boo boo on her boobies?!  :)  Can't wait to hear how the surgery goes!

Well I've got boobies now and holy shit this hurts...

well I've got boobies now and holy shit this hurts. I was prepared for pain but no where near as much as I'm in. I've had a c-section and hysterectomy in the past year and I thought that was bad, but nothing compared to this. I'm loving what I can see so far but wish I didn't have it done. I can't sit up by myself or lean over to kiss my kids. not being able to hold my babies is killing me. I don't know if I'm hurting this much because the implants are so big 550cc. Or what's going on. my Percocet aren't doing much of anything. I'm really hoping I start to feel better soon. my husband is being so supportive and helpful I don't know what I'd do without him. poor guy has to take care of 6 kids me being one of them because I'm pretty much helpless right now. tomorrow I get to take off the wrap and hopefully that'll make me feel better. how long did it take everybody else to start feeling better? I'll try and use my parents computer to post some pics cuz all I have is my phone and I can't do it from here.

well it's a week today since I got my second set of twins. first set is my twin babies lol. I'm still a little sore but it's getting alot better. I'm loving my new boobies they look so good. It's kinda funny seeing the difference in the way they look each day. I've been taking daily pictures just to compare. my husband's loving oiling them up for me a few times a day. today's the first day that I'm on my own with all 5 kids. hubby had to go back to work. And my 2 older kids are out of school for good Friday and Easter.

tomorrow will be 4 weeks since my surgery. And I can finally wear a regular bra, I'm so excited. I waited almost 15yrs to get them and now I can finally show them off. the only problem is trying to find bras in the right size. I'm needing a 34ddd or dd depending on the brand. I can't help but stare at myself in the mirror and touch them. I think I'm afraid that they'll disappear lol. the recovery has been much easier than I expected. except for theses lines coming from the incisions and go down to my ribs and some even further and it hurts to stretch. they seem to pull. I have an appt on Monday and I'll ask the dr.

How did your last doctor appt go? What were the lines from your incisions?  You look great! Congratulations!

it went good. he said that the lines are something from the muscle I don't remember for sure what. I still have part of the incision with a scab though which I thought would be healed by now, it's been almost 6wks.

Hoping the incision scab goes away soon. Wondering if a bit of antibiotic cream on it wouldn't hurt? Take care!

I had a bunch of consultations set up but he was my first and I felt so comfortable with him that I cancelled all the rest.
