Pregnancy Diaries - Wink Shapewear

So I am currently pregnant with baby #2, and this one is really taking me places I have not ever been before. Just look at the before I was pregnant..
I am already hitting number on the scale that I have never seen before and with my doctor putting me on such high risk. I cannot exercise at all. And now with the Placenta Previa, I am supposedly scheduled to have a C-section. My 1st was born natural and I really want this baby to be natural. But for my baby's well being I do not care what the doctors have to do as long as my baby is safe, and healthy at birth. So I am planning on going back into my size small (4/6). I have battled the scale before and am need of something to hold it all in and help me take care of myself at the same time.

I am gonna share a secret weapon with you...shhhhh

wink - the original medical-grade compression & shape wear

Slims you down | Improves power and performance | Enhances skin tone | Keeps you cool and dry | Kills bacteria |

How Does Wink Medical Shapewear Slim More Than Spanx®?
The results of 15 years of scientific textile research, our patented, F5 ComfortWeave fabric delivers the highest level of slimming power available. In fact, world renowned French plastic surgeon Dr. Yves-Gerard Illouz, M.D. found that only fabric with the pressure range between 17 to 20 mm Hg (found in our F5 fabric) delivers true slimming benefits such as the reduction of the appearance of cellulite.

MEDICALLY SPEAKING | The need for tissue compression following a c-section or normal delivery is caused by the trauma and insult to the underlying body structures involved. Muscles, blood vessels, lymphatic channels, and connective fibers attaching skin to deeper structures can all be altered, severed, bruised, or damaged during pregnancy, labor, and birth.

Bruising, edema, swelling of the uterus and discomfort are the results of this trauma. The art of proper post-pregnancy compression can assist in lessening these post-delivery conditions and further reducing the risk of possible complications, pooch bellies, loose skin, and pain. | Wearing a Wink™ Belly Wraps slimming garment post-delivery you will see your body bouncing back to shape faster. |

My thoughts-I have tried several shapewears in my past. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 4. And none of them seem to be backed with such compression. I can't wait to deliver my baby girl and start getting back in shape. I like the support this underwear will be able to give me after my C-section. I have not seen anything like it before for C-sections. It is contoured for my shape. One of my co-workers had to be admitted back into the hospital because her C-section opened back up. She had no support from her underwear and had her recovery time doubled.

***disclosure-No monetary compensation was received. I received a product sample to review. These are my honest thoughts and opinions. Your experience may be different than my own.

Wow! Really? First I am sorry that you will not be able to deliver naturally, but as long as you and your baby are safe and healthy you have to do what the doc says. That looks like awesome shapewear. I am going to have to take a look. Also, once you deliver your baby will you be posting you diet secrets? Patricia
