This is a guest post from Eden.
If you’ll humor me, I’m going to brag on myself for just a minute. You see, if there were an award for stomach sleeping, I’m pretty confident I would be a world champion. It’s one of my “no compromises.” Sleeping on my side or back would be like intentionally buying generic toilet paper when Charmin is obviously the superior choice.
I know for a lot of us women, sleeping on our stomach isn’t something we’re willing to give up. In fact, I remember the day it hit me that I may not ever be able to stomach-sleep again if I got an augmentation, and that fear almost kept me from having the procedure at all (truth.) However, I’m excited to report that I still sleep on my stomach every single night.
I’m not going to lie, the first few months are going to be awkward—like first-boyfriend-in-highschool awkward. Basically you have to go through a dating phase with your new breasts… getting to know them, how they feel, what bothers them, etc. But don’t let that intimidate you. I promise that after breast augmentation surgery you will be able to sleep on your stomach again!
Here’s how it usually goes…
- The first month post op, you aren’t going to want to sleep on your stomach at all. I slept on my back for the first full month to allow my breasts some good time to heal.
- Months 2 and 3 you’ll get more adventurous by trying to lay on your stomach. Let me tell you, it feels like there’s 2 oranges stuck between you and the bed. Not comfortable! Just remember, give it time and don’t give up.
- After 3 months post op, you’ll be back to sleeping comfortably on your stomach. I don’t even notice them anymore, and I forget that it was even an issue I acclimated to.
So if you are a stomach sleeper, no worries! Yes, they will feel foreign to you at first. But the more you get to know them and the longer they are with you, the more comfortable you’ll be with them. You’ll even forget they weren’t there from day one! So if you are a stomach sleeper, no worries! Yes, they will feel foreign to you at first.
