Like many other people I was not going to share my story, but I felt so empowered by reading the stories of so many others on the site. So, here it goes.... Lol. I am an engaged mother of 5 (wedding at the end of April 2013)!!! I have given birth to 4 children (3 of which were via c-section). I also just turned 30 two weeks ago! I have been wanting get a TT for about the last 5 years. However, time, fear and finances have prevented me from actually scheduling the procedure until now. After getting married to the "ex" and beginning a family at a very ealy age my body has just never been the same. I am 5'10 and weigh about 178. My highest weight was 226 post pregnancy and my lowest was 155! Right now my goal weight is about 165 (I don't see me hitting that before surgery). Anyways, now that I am officially done having kids, I am ready to a little something for me and fix this belly! My fiancé is completely loving and supportive and I feel so blessed that I have him in my life. However, not everyone is as supportive as he has with my decision. The kids seem like they are pretty scared since I've never been in the hospital before besides having children. I feel pretty bad about that because I don't want to cause them any stress. I just reassure them that everything will be fine (and I pray to God it will be). My friends and family I have told are about 70/30, with 70% on the positive side.
Well that's my story! Hopefully, it wasn't too boring :-s I will post before pics as soon as I can.

So surgery was yesterday at about 10a until just about 2. The plastic surgeon said everything went really well. Had a tummy tuck with no muscle repair. My PS said my muscles were already very tight. (Shocking). I also had liposuction to my upper back, outer thighs and gluteal area. The pannus removed was a total of 2.2 lbs. I stayed overnight at the hospital per my PS policy for a full TT. The pain hasn't been that bad thus far, just really sore. I've been taking just extra strength Tylenol and I had my third dose of that this afternoon. Honestly, the liposuction areas are way more painful then the TT. Every time I get up I start off really sore and stiff in the legs but this loosens after a couple minutes of standing. I haven't seen my belly yet since I am wrapped up. I don't have a abdomen binder. Just a chest to knee post liposuction compression garment. I have 2 jp drains which the doc is hoping to remove by wednesday as long as they are putting out less than 50cc in 24 hours. Unfortunately, my monthly friend started early this morning which hasn't exactly made this process any easier (tmi, I know). But my compression garment has an opening for easy bathroom access ( thank God)... Anyways I will try to post pics later thisweek when I finally get to see my belly.
My prayers are with those that have surgery coming up a d happy healing to those in their recovery process. :)
Went to my PS office today. Had both of my drains...
