I am having my TT done on 6/25 and will be at the beach 7/5.from what I have read I know it is was process. ...any words of wisdom of advice? Thank you in advance.

nerves are setting in...3 day countdown

Hi everyone,

Well the anxiety had set in. I can't believe my surgery is this coming Wednesday. I am extremely nervous and excited at the same time. I have stayed away from reading too much because of my nerves. Any last minute advice for this momma? Anyone else scheduled this week? I would love someone to go thru this together with: )

I also need to take and upload some photos will try to accomplish that before Wednesday.

already having trouble sleeping

This time on Wednesday I should be out of surgery. The nerves have set in enough I am already having trouble sleeping. I worry about my babies. Trying to keep myself busy with work and forgetting everything ready.

17 hours till TT Time

alright the nerves have set in full force. 17 hours to go...at this point I just want it over! hopefully I'll get some sleep tonight. Surgery is tomorrow at 7am. Please keep me and my family in your prayers. I can't wait to be on the flat side enjoying the rest of you wonderful ladies.

one happy lady ????

Love my doctor and his staff, they're AMAZING! I am just sore and tired, but taking it easy and staying on top of my pain meds so they don't wear off. My husband and kids have been great. Not sure why I was so nervous, but am glad to be on the recovery side. Haven't had a chance to see anything with the binder on but I can't wait to see my new tummy. Thank you to all you incredible ladies for sharing your stories and reaching out to support & comfort me. XO

Day 3 Post Op

Day 1&2 I was pretty sore. I have been taking my meds religiously and it has been bearable. Wasn't prepared for how sore my back is due to the hunching over. Each day has gotten a little better. I honestly thought it was going to be worse than it is though. The hardest part as other have said is getting up and sitting/ laying back down. I have had the joy of getting my period the day after my TT, which has added to having to get up more frequently.

Thank goodness for my family and friends for helping me. I have not had much of an appetite which is fine...wouldn't mind losing a couple extra pounds. I have minimized my salt intake and have been downing water. I have been eating around the time I take my meds to avoid getting nauseous. I have not taken my compression garment off, but I am extremely please with my silhouette. Might take a peak tomorrow. My drains seem to be doing well and am definitely Looking forward to their removal.

6 Days PO

I know I still have swelling and a ways to go but so far I am excited about my new tummy.
