I was lucky that loose dresses and leggings were in style when I had mine done. I did not want to wear pants at all for about six months. Yoga or sweat pants a size too big are good too. Hold a pillow to your abdomen if you need to cough or laugh! Sitting up in a chair was pretty uncomfortable for me for several months.
Make sure to ask about exercise restrictions post surgery. On the plus side, you will lose as much as 5 pounds once the swelling goes down!
This is a big surgery, and even if you have it done laproscopically it is not a walk in the park. For me it was pretty emotionally tough too, but your situation is difference since you already have children.
Best wishes and good luck to you.
