She has overcome many obstacles throughout her own life, and still
managed to raise and love 4 (VERY DIFFERENT) girls! She has stuck
by me through thick and thin. When I suffered heavy depression as
a teen, she was always there even though I tried to push her away.
Now, as an adult, and as a mother myself.. I strive to be a loving,
caring, and supportive as she has always been. Having her tell me
that shes proud of what I have become makes each day that much
brighter. I love you so much mom!

-Being Creative (as an artist, its what keeps your mind in constant
motion... always creating, always expressing)
Testimonial: Let me tell you a little about my experiences during
pregnancy and how they affected my life, and my BREASTS lol.
My husband and I are the most PROUD parents on the planet! Baby Rain has
changed our lives so much, and when he and I thought we could not love
ANY more than we already did, she came into our life.
From day one of my pregnancy, my husband was always VERY supportive of
all the *delights* of being pregnant.... from the Morning (Evening) sickness
that usually lasted a good 5 hours a day, to the mood swings, crying at
every little stupid thing, and even my insecurity with the weight gain.
Funny enough, it was the dramatic changes with my body that fascinated
him, and in itself, made me more attractive to him. He would compliment
my belly, and talk to it (her) all the time.. even before I even began
to show.... always telling me how beautiful I was, and how motherhood
made me even more gorgeous in his eyes.
I actually got many compliments on my belly once it grew... oddly enough,
from complete strangers!
My breasts, though, made MANY more changes throughout the pregnancy
than even my abdomen did! From about week 5 to week 12, my breasts
swelled about half a cup size. Now mind you, I had breast augmentation
prior, and had been extremely happy with my 450cc silicone implants that
brought my breast size to a content 34D.
My breast size then fluctuated between 34D to 36DD over the next few months..
then seemed to stop. I thought that was it. I constantly showed this to
my hubby in amusement, and more to MY delight than his lol.
After Rain was born, my mom said to start wearing nipple pads in case
I began to leak. I hadnt quite gotten much colustrum from the get-go,
so I wasnt too sure if my milk would even come in. I had spent time
with a lactation consultant, who constantly attempted to get Rain to breastfeed
in the hospital before we came home.
She always seemed to be hungry in the times I attempted breastfeeding,
so I eventually gave up, and switched her to the bottle. A few days later,
we stayed the night at my mother's house so we could relax a bit (with
the eager grandparents on stand-by in the next room lol). I'd say on the
3rd day, I ENGORGED!!!! It was INSANE how huge my breasts got. The way
we measured, they grew to a 36EE overnight. (Seriously.... PORN STAR HUGE!)
MY GOODNESS did they HURT!!! I came into the bedroom and flashed my hubby,
"Look!" lol. His response was a startled, "Good GOD".
We both had a good laugh about it.. but of course, being as swollen as
they were, he was only allowed to LOOK, not PLAY. After half the day went
by, with no luck in breast feeding, but still leaking, I went out and
purchased a manual breast pump.
WHAT A GODSEND! I spent about an hour on both breasts when I got home,
and the relief was incredible! Though, it was not meant to last. On my
next few attempts to pump, even with an expensive electronic pump we received
as a gift, I was not producing. I tried so hard to pump over many hours,
that I eventually began to faint constantly.
We decided that taking care of Rain was my number one priority, which
I could not do if I was exhausted and fainting. So from then on, we kept
her on formula. Nonetheless, shes a very happy, healthy, and eager-to-learn
4 month old!
I do not blame my implants for my "lack of lactation". I was
able to pump at one point, so I know that my mammary glands werent
damaged by the augmentation. It was mainly my own body, as I had heard
also that some women in my family suffered this same problem whom had
NOT had augmentation.
All I know is, though it was rough at times, pregnancy was one of the
most awesome experiences of my life! And though Dr. Corbin had given
me the dreamy breasts I had always wanted many years prior, even that
can change. I'm looking forward to finishing having children, and come
back in a few years to get those 36EE from him for good! Dr. Corbin is
amazing. I would recommend him to any woman needing a ,Mommy makeover
. Tee hee.
Laugh, Love, Live!
