Okay, so here's the deal. I'm not questioning ethics of the Mommy Makeover... in fact, I'm ALL for it. Maybe I'm questioning my own ethics as I'm feeling extremely selfish & wondering if I'm jumping the gun... you see, I'm scheduled for my surgery 21 March 2012 but I'm NOT done having kids (well, hopefully I'm not). Once my bf and I decided we wanted a child together, we stopped using b.c. (6 mos ago) & I lost a full cup size in my breasts. I began looking into only a breast lift/implants but soon discovered the amazing outcomes of a full tummy tuck with lipo. I've reached a point where I'm tired of the "belly flap" that hangs over my waist. I had my consultation... thought on it for some time & scheduled my surgery date. I explained my plan to have another child with the staff & my P.S. They didn't explain the risks, if any, of becoming pregnant post surgery but did say it would be possible to have a mini tuck later if needed. I am planning on using b.c. for the first 6 months after surgery. After the 6 months, we won't be counting ovulation cycles or using fertility but we won't avoid sex either. My bf supports me either way... if I wait to have the surgery or have it now. If I do have another child & need a follow up mini tuck, he's supportive. He just wants me to be happy & I'm truly not happy with my body as it is. I have PCOS & becoming pregnant isn't an easy task for me but we aren't fully ready to try fertility either. Since it could be a couple of years, I want the Mommy Makeover now. After all, there's no guarantee for tomorrow and no guarantee I'll even have another child. So my question is this... AM I CRAZY?!?!

I'm reading all the hints/tips and trying to quickly get things in order for my surgery date. My BF has scheduled to take off work the day of/after surgery. I'm attempting make extra food at night so I can freeze a few meals to make it easier on him the nights we have our kids. I know him, he'll probably just order pizza or grab fast food but there will be food in the freezer if he wants to pop it in the oven. Or, I'll use it once I'm back on my feet but still not 100%.

I'm trying hard to drop a few more pounds before surgery... I have a few weeks left and would be happy if I got 10-15 off. It's okay if I don't but I'm trying.

Btw, I already have problems with my bowel movements & fearful it might cause some pain (constipation) after the surgery. Any suggestions to aid in becoming more regular and helping things go smoother for after the surgery?
