T - 2 Days Until I'm Banded

I'm on the last day before my all clear liquid day starts and then Thursday I'm having my Lap Band surgery at Noon.  Right now I feel like I need to vomit..... kind of funny, cause there really would only be liquids to vomit up. I'm kind of nervous about my surgery and I keep on pushing away my irrational fears about surgery (surgery in general). I've been put under 2 other times, and I have had a C-Section, so I'm not a newbie. I now have a small child to add to the mix. I just keep reminding myself that the path I was on was leading me to an untimely death and that I'm doing this for myself first, but for my child/family too.

Warning the following involves Aunt Flow...... 

It also occurred to me that I'm suppose to start my period tomorrow.... perfect timing, right? I could have figured this out by looking at the app on my phone or my birth control pack, but I didn't really consider Aunt Flow when scheduling my surgery. This is only an issue because I'm not really a fan of tampons and since I will not be able to use my normal method of protection during my surgery, I have to go get a sample pack. I still have a few of the Instead Soft Cups, which is a cup that you insert into your hoohaa and push up inside, maybe I'll use one of those, I like them better.


  1. Good luck. It will be over before you know it and you'll be on your way to your new, thinner, healthier life!

  2. Good luck on Thursday! I'm heading off this morning for mine... I hear ya on the nerves thing!

  3. Good luck with your surgery! Please keep us updated on your recovery!
