    Oh no! I'm on antibiotics right now (UTI) and you can bet that I am SUPER DUPER strict about the back-up birth control!
    6 months is a good way out. I've seen some stories on here about people getting pregnant weeks after surgery. Obviously, the best thing to do is talk to your surgeon, OB-GYN, and nutritionist to make sure you are doing everything you need to care for yourself and the baby. I have read in previous posts here that the general rule of thumb is to prioritize the pregnancy over the surgery. So take prenatal Vitamins instead of your bariatric Vitamins, etc. But the important thing right this second is not to panic and to make sure you are getting proper medical advice from the fully informed professionals.
    You can safely continue to lose weight while pregnant, you just need to make sure all your nutritional needs are being met. This is not an impossible situation!

    I just found out I'm pregnant also 8 months out from surgery. I'm concerned about nutrition for the baby and really not worried about loosing more weight right now.

    I took four pregnancy test today and they all came back positive. I am excited and scared at the same time since I am considered a high risk patient. All my pregnancy were high risk. So I guess it's time to look for a doc that specializes in this case.

    I'm in the same boat... got pregnant 6 or 7 months post-op... an unexpected but welcomed surprise.

    Nrg33... you & I are in the same shoes!! Oy ve'...this was not as I had planned it, but it is what it is. I'm still in shock yet somewhat happy. I found out on Christmas and then after 3 home tests decided to go into Planned Parenthood and get tested again. Yep. I'm pregnant.
    I called my Bariatric team this morning (which is 2 hours away) and was told I would get a phone call back. A nurse calls me back within in the hour and tells me to take Prenatal Vitamins and continue taking my Calcium citrate, B-12, & Prilosec. I asked her what about follow up with them and she said normal scheduled follow ups. That's it.
    Two thoughts run through my head after this conversation...
    A. Am I being shunned or punished because I accidentally got pregnant 7 months past my surgery
    B. Is this how they treat all pregnancies... and if so WTF?!?
    Today I've been hunting for a mid wife but I think I might need to seek a Doc under these special circumstances.

    Hello, how about change your snack to healthy Snacks. Instead of sodas drink Water. You can do this you've done it already. Dont forget exercise no minimum 4 times a wk. your goal is right around the corner. If the others can do it you can do it too ????.

    I was sleeved just before you. 60# is great!! Don't get too frustrated with this new phase, it too will pass.
    I buy Quest Protein bars for when I want something sweet. The chocolate ones are pretty good and so are the lemon. I also snack on watermelon squares, cheese squares, and saltines with laughing cow cheese wedges. I dont snack much though because I use fluids instead .... Protein drinks (nectar has great fruity ones!) or SF Water drops/flavors like raspberry lemonade help too.
