    Hope you're feeling better and having a nice weekend! We've had a full houseful....one daughter sick, one home from college and very needy...lol, the third has herself holed up in her room. The puppy's gained a few more pounds! Up to about 20! Glad I don't gain weight that fast!

    Hi, thanks for dropping by my blog. I did do the doula course a couple of years ago but because I was/am working full time I've never been able to actually do it. I'm now applying to do midwifery (in the UK they are the primary carers for pregnancy and deliver every baby. The only thing they don't do is c-sections but they'll still be present supporting their clients) and have got an interview in Dec which I'm very excited about!

    Am happy to talk to all and sundry about it all though I just can't offer any personal insights emoticon

    Regarding the situps/crunches..... my doctor made it VERY clear to me that I was never to do them. That she had given me a six pack and that the muscles are nice and tight, if i did situps/crunches I would probably do damage to what she did with the surgery. I was quite happy to hear that and am quite content in never doing them, ever. So, you may want to ask your surgeon about those, you may need to do them a special way or something to keep from actually pushing your ab muscles back out again.

    I just went for my 9 mos followup appt. She was very happy to see the waist & ab definition I have now that I have lost a ton of bloating from my food intolerances. I have lost about 8 lbs and no more puffyness. Looks much better. I'm still numb, which she said was normal - about an 8" wide circle around my belly button.

    My suggestion for your middle would be to maybe cut down on gluten containing foods. From what I've learned & experienced those foods can cause a lot of bloating. When I cut out dairy, gluten,soy, corn etc..... the pounds literally fell off of me. It was so crazy weird.

    Naomi,
    So glad that the gel helped! That's great! Yes, it does feel soooo tight, I agree. It is creepy sometimes. I'm still tight in the abdomen, even now! And I'm still numb! That is the weirdest thing. I hope that I get the rest of my nerve feeling back.
    Right about now you may start getting a real hard feeling in those flanks. I mean it hurts! And it feels hard. When that starts (and if the bruising doesn't hurt any more) take your fists and dig them into your flanks to massage them. Do it several times a day. It will help break up the scar tissue that's forming from the lipo and it will feel MUCH better. Keep doing that for the next month or so....
    When you are up to it you will want to schedule a couple of Pregnancy Massages at a local (and reputable) massage place. You will lay on your side and they can work on those areas. It will make a huge difference in how the lipo'd area turns out in the end.

    I hope you recover quickly! Let me know if you have any questions! I'm so glad to hear from you!
