Mom to Mom Mom to Mom
I was pretty thin before I got pregnant with my daughter. Durin my pregnancy I gained 55 pounds and I've only lost 35 of it. I'm not really comfortable with how I look. I am a sahm and I don't go to the gym like I used to. I want to spend as much time as possible with my dd. That being said I do also want to look and feel good again.

I was thinking about scheduling a consultation for a tummy tuck, breast lift and stretch mark lazer treatment. DH said he thinks I look fine but if it'll make me happy then I can go through with it.
We go to a beach house every summer for at least a couple of weeks so if I do go through with it, it has to be soon. I am not sure though if I really want to have surgery though and not be able to play with dd for a couple weeks. Also we plan to have at least one more child in the next few years so I feel like that would ruin the whole procedure.

Anyone have something similar done? Should I do it, was it worth it?

Why wouldn't you just run to the gym for an hour- two each day instead of being out of commission for 5-8 weeks. 20 lbs is not enough to get a tummy tuck over expecially if you were thin to begin with. Post a before and after picture and let's us really tell you if you need one or not.



How do I post pics?

No. I would not get surgery when you can alter your body at home and make it what you want it to be. I think it's unessecary risk to your health when you have a child or children to worry about.

Ultimately do whatever makes you happy but I would rather be the real me then fake.

I don't know how many years we are going to wait before we have another and like some other poster said, I plan to be more careful with how much I gain next time around. I do see what your saying though. I wish I knew but I can't make up my mind about how old I want y prat daughter to be when we try again.
