Can Hardly Wait - Yakima, WA

Before I had my 3 kids I had a wounderful body....

Before I had my 3 kids I had a wounderful body. With my first pregency, I gained 85 pounds. I was too thin to start out at (5'5" 110 lbs) and gained 80 pounds. I never lost that preg wt but went down to a comfortable 145, got pregnant with my second and blew up past 220. I then dropped down to 168-175 for a long time. Finally I started to care what I looked like and sstarting exercising and eating right. I got down to 135 then got preg with my son. I gained 50 lbs with him but lost it quickly. I got down to 125 afterwards and everything on my body is ruined.

A couple a days after Christmas my husband and I decided that we were in a financial postion that we could go ahead with my Mommy Makeover. I had a consultation with a plastic surgeon in the area that I completely trust and booked my surgery right after the consultation. My surgery is scheduled for March 6. Super excited and cannot wait.

Post op day 2: feeling better!! Going to to try to go without pains pills today, maybe just take them at night. I get my drain tubes out tomorrow so freaking happy about that. I cannot believe how good I'm feeling :-)

Post op day 5: I got a little depressed today, not so much on the results of my surgery but the fact that there's so much I cannot do yet. I feel fine and the pain is minimal! I haven't had prescription pain meds since Thursday night at bedtime.
On Friday 3/9, I got my drain tubes out. He told me to be on my best behavior and not to over do it. I see him again on Friday. I hope he releases me to do a little more! I'm so bored but that's ok.

It's been one week since my surgery. I feel great pain wise, but really emotional. I have my ups and downs. One minute I love how i look and the next i feel like my ass is growing bigger everyday. I miss exercising, working, etc. I miss my normal routine.
My left drain tube sight started bleeding last night. ( I got the tubes out on Friday) the right one looks great. So taking it even easier than easy, see how things look tomorrow and probably call the ps tomorrow. Right there really brought me down today. Im scheduled to see him on Friday. I have been taking it easy. I pretty much just get up to go to the bathroom and eat.
Who knows what tomorrow brings, I'll probably be all smiles:)

I am completely happy on how I was treated before and after my surgery!!!!
