Well, in two days I will be gaining back some of my awesome nursing curves. I have decided to have a breast augmentation! Now, before any of you go to judging me and acting like I'm super self-absorbed, let me explain my reasoning.
I have always been super happy about my appearance and am really low maintenance. I've never even used an eyelash curler, see a hairdresser about once every two years and buy clothes and purses that are not name brand. Those things just aren't important to me.
I've always placed a lot of importance on taking care of my body with exercise and decent eating (love Mexican food and cheesecake unfortunately). I loved my appearance during pregnancy. Even with 45 extra pounds and swelling in my legs that made them look like elephants, I thought I was pretty. I loved my curves!
And breastfeeding was even better. I got to be skinny again and have awesome boobs. What more could you ask for?
So I spent four years straight either pregnant or nursing, so I was surprised at the changes in my breast when I weaned Graham. I knew it wasn't going to be pretty but after nursing a big eater for over 14 months, damage was done. And I no longer wanted to wear a swimsuit or change with anyone in the room. Including Aaron.
So, surgery is Wednesday and I'm getting hot again. Should say hotter because I bet these puppies look way better than before.
I'll update later in the week on how things went and how I'm keeping my two snuggly people from clinging to my chest!
