My current stats are 35yo, 5.2 tall, 128lbs. I have 2 beautiful children (7yo girl & 3yo boy) but unfortunately they did a number on my body. They were both full term, 8 lbs babies. Well, my husband and I have decided not to have any more children so the time has come. I've been planning this ever since I was 8 months pregnant with my dd and the first ugly stretch marks appeared. My ds came 4 yrs later and put the final nail in the coffin.

I've been working really hard on my body for the past 3 years and I'm finally ready to go for surgery. I've been going to a personal trainer twice a week, bootcamp once a week and ballet once a week (I secretly still want to be a prima ballerina...note the sarcasm). I've also struggled with depression over the last 7 years (starting with post natal and graduating to full blown). But I have worked hard on my mental state with the help of a brilliant psychologist & psychiatrist.
I've been reading mm reviews for months and they have inspired me immensely. Now I can finally join the community...

So, it's only another 16 days before I get my new tummy and ta-ta's. Can't wait. But I am getting anxious. I've posted a few before pics. Taking the photos reminded me of the reasons I'm getting this MM. I hate the stretch marks and the loose skin on my tummy. And I'm tired of trying to get a bra to accomodate my 2 different sized boobies.
What did you guys tell your kids about the surgery? I've been trying to teach my dd to love herself for who and what she is and now I feel like a hypocrate for doing this. But I really think of a MM as more of a reconstructive than cosmetic surgery. Am I just trying to justify my decision?

Ok, so it's only another 8 days. Let the countdown begin. Anybody else turn into a complete monster the week before mm? My husband said 'good morning' and I almost bit his head off. 10 Minutes later my daughter and I had a minor disagreement which turned into a full blown tantrum (me). I'm eating up a storm. I think I might have gained 3 pounds in the last week. Trying to contain myself but failing miserably.

It doesn't help that I'm working from home at the moment. The fridge is 10 steps away and the pantry 12 steps. Do those steps count as excercise? I've just found out that my little boy might have his tonsils removed before the end of this week. Seeing the doctor in an hour.

So i'm 1dpo. Wow. Still can't believe it. I didn't need any drains. Whoo-hoo. The pain is manageable. I'm just finding it very hard to do the simplests of tasks. Like reach for my mobile. The nurse is coming to change the dressing in the next hour. I can't wait to sneak a peak. And then I'm going home. I need to see my kids. Will post pics as soon as i can reach my laptop. Good luck to everybody on the 8th. And to the ladies on the 7th... Welcome to the other side.
