Im a 27 year old mother of two. I had my first son at 20 and my second son at 24. during my first pregnancy I went from 118 to 208. A year later I was back down to 120. Three years later I was pregnant with my second son and I gained about 70lbs. I am now about 135 and hate the extra skin on my belly.

Before I had my children I never wore bikinis or anything that showed my belly but now that is all i dream of. I am so ashame of my stomach that always have a shirt on with i am with my husband. He say he doesnt care, but i want to do this for myself. we have decided not to have any more children.

My surgery date is July 22, 2011. I am so nervous. I had a c-section before but i really dont know what to expect. The doctor charged me 3500 and i have to pay 1400 to the hospital.
