Well, finally I am fixing this post twin pregnancy body and I'm so excited! I joke with my husband that I feel like my body looks as if I stood really close to a fire and I melted! Lol!!
I have a lot of anxiety about recovery though, and I worry about how my kids (2 1/2 years old) will react to seeing mommy hunched over and laying around. I will thankfully have a lot of help so I'm sure I'm worrying over nothing. My guilt is killing me also because I really hate that I'm spending a large sum of money on myself:(. I just keep telling myself that I deserve this now and it is going to make me a happier mommy!:)
I went to my consult the other day and the PS and I decided on breast augmentation and a "skin-only" mini tummy tuck. I was just planning on a BA but after showing him my loose skin he recommended the mini. I didn't even know there was such thing!
Now my biggest questions for everyone are: How long until I can work (I'm a hair stylist)? Saline or silicone gels!?!
Surgery is scheduled for less then a month and my pre-op is just one week before surgery. I just can't wait and hope the guilt subsides a little so I can truly enjoy this process!

My husband and I will take a few before pics today before we leave. I'm very excited to see the final outcome! I hope my nerves don't get the best of me before surgery. I should have asked for an anti-anxiety pill!:)

The main bit of advise this far is to stay on top of your pain! I took a dose before bed and just planned on letting the pain wake me up........bad idea! Set an alarm for every 4 hrs and don't push it any further then that at least the first night.
I can't see a thing and it is torturing me! In the binder and support bra I feel hot!! Lol! So I guess it will only get better from here!:)
