30 days to go! let the count down begin. As i type this I think my nerves is getting the best of me. I have never been so excited and scared at the same time in my life. My hearts beats so fast as I think about the procedure. I know i should be thinking positive and having visions of great results but Im scared. Exhale and Inhale and I know everything is going to be just fine. Will keep praying for the best but hey you know the saying why pray and worry?

My post op appointment today! Better sweet day had to pay balance in full ugh! It was pretty short and sweet signed consents in the lobby went in back for photo shoot went over some of the paper work, didn't get to see my PS only had a medical assistant. She took blood work CBC and vitals. No scripts due to no doctor signature was told I could come back or get them on surgery day ugh again! Lol so I'm officially 14 days to TT. I will start taking a multi vitamin tomorrow and discontinue my other supplements. Was given a long list of food, drinks, pills not to take. Grapes and apples being one of them. I'm so excited and can't wait till this is finally over! Hurry up MAY 25! For all of us on that day! Lol

4 more days to go!! well i have been pampering myself. Been to spa hot stones, medicure and pedicure. Finished up shopping for food and supplies. House is almost where i want it. Kids school clothes washed and ironed for the next 2 weeks of school. Im nesting as you would say. I never had a C-section and i read on here alot of ladies compare it to that or better. So im hoping for a good turn out, i guess giving natural birth to 3 babies over 8lbs i can tolorate some pain lol! thanks ladies for all the kind works of encouragment and mostly to Booka for all your advice and help! I too will be on the road to recovery so let the Surgery start and some good healing!! :)

Fast forward! To Wednesday please...... I'm 4days on my menstrual and praying it's finish by wednesday. I'm finished shopping, cooking and cleaning. My family is so supportive now, so much help it's overwhelming but greatly appreciated. My granny was totally against it now she is my biggest fan. I love her aww. My best friend is helping a lot she will be driving me to surgery and most likely preparing meals, errands etc... Hey that's what friends are for. I told co- workers no use in lying, I'm grown and it's fully paid for with my money! Plus Im sure I will need some of there help afterward. I have a desk job so it shouldn't be that bad. Life is truly god, thank you god for my many blessings

Booka, kimmers somebody !!!!!! I'm in pain! It felt like I died when I cough, how long does that last? I don't t think the meds are strong enough. I go tomm and will be telling her I need more. I'm propped up on chair with pillows I can't get comfortable. I was 20 mins late so I didnt have to wait long got started right away. I'm not sure what hurts if it the binder, lipo or tt or what. I woke up with pain in recovery.I know it takes time I'm trying to be a champ, any advices ladies

Ok so I had my post op appointment today ugh due to the extreme pain I was in, I was taking too many pain pill and sitting there today so high in front of the doctor how embarrassing I didn't know!! I even had the nerves to tell her the pills wasn't working and I needed more. She made me stand straight up and eat 3 sugar packs, I was so sick, felt like throwing up, chills and sweat. Boy did I feel and looked like a crack head!! Lol I'm better now she gave me the option to wear the binder or not. She said everything looked good. I was on cloud nine I didn't even look at myself and she had the medical assistant go get my aunt and bring her back in the room and told her to control my meds!! I know, I know.... But I'm gonna try n upload some pic. By the way I do feel better!

DONT SNEEZE ! 1 week today and omg a sneeze, it felt like my insides was finna come out. It hurt and felt weird. Pain isn't so bad today, haven't took vicoden since last Saturday Been on Tylenol extra strength 2x a day, I go to PS tomrr hopefully to get drains out it's 5-10cc now. I can't totally walk straight, I feel a pull and right side pain. Can't wait till more recoveries

I'm 10 days post and I have left drain. She...

I'm 10 days post and I have left drain. She took right one out but say keep left one in until Tuesday. I'm draining very little 5cc and it's dark red. Where the drain insert is has been bleeding. Geesh I can't wait until it's ok. I'm trying to think positive but I got a feeling it's gonna hurt like he'll coming out. I feel like it's all tangled in my muscles and cause me to walk uncomfortably and not fully stand or walk straight. I notice the swelling durning the day, I come home take arnica pill and massage cream on tummy, binder and heating pad and I wake up flat. I hope it's just swelling above incision and not sermona. I feel over all ok, not taking pain pills but once a day Tylenol. Promise will post pic by Sunday ladies
