    Emotional Connections

    I've tried leaving twice.. before my wls. But came back both times. In his eyes all is well. Sometimes I swear not an emotional bone in his body... hopefully in time we get it figured out. Is it bad to hope he'll hate the new me and leave this time around? :-/
  2. :-( I can't even imagine!! My. Thoughts and prayers are with you!

    Almost 3 Months Post-op and Surprise...

    We had a d&c 1.5 weeks after this post. We had 2 ultrasounds and were diagnosed with a blighted ovum or false pregnancy. The heartbreak was tremendous and it's thrown my body out of whack. I've struggled with getting back on track with my eating and weight loss too. Praying we get to try again for a healthy pregnancy soon!!

    Nothing tastes good

    Nothing sounds good, ever. It's a challenge for sure.

    I was told to take an additional folic acid supplement on top of my prenatal vitamin by my surgeon. Congratulations!!!

    Almost 3 Months Post-op and Surprise...

    I went for ultrasound and saw only the gestational sac. So good news is that we weren't as far along as my period dated me being.. I must have ovulated late.. which is normal for me. My cycles have always been between 45 and 60 days long. So hoping and praying we have a viable pregnancy here. With the afternoon sickness and overly sensitive sense of smell, I could only hope this means baby is growing!! Anxious to hear from my ob tomorrow.
  7. So after constant nausea, pure exhaustion again, and smelling this awful smell in my house that noone else can smell I decided to take a test to be safe... I never, ever, in a million years expected a positive test. We've used protection and I had a doctor's appointment on Monday to get on the pill or have an IUD placed again. Tomorrow is our 9th wedding anniversary so I will be finding a way to break the news to hubby then... but I don't want him telling a lot of people because I'm scared. I'm terrified of what my surgeon will say... terrified of what our families will think.. and terrified at ending up with a loss. I figure I am about 6.5 weeks pregnant at the time. Advice, suggestions, tips, etc? Please not negative comments... like I said, we were preventing, but it happened anyhow.

    Pregnant 4 months post op.

    Just found out today that I'm pregnant. I have to call my surgeon tomorrow.. he's likely to be upset. I figure I'm about 6.5 weeks out. VSG surgery was on 07/13/2015. I'm scared.. nervous.. and anxious.
  9. I hope my sex drive comes back. I lost it about 2 years ago. I was sleeved 7/13 and am down 60 pounds and it still hasn't returned. I don't feel like I have an emotional connection with my husband, or anyone else for that matter. Just doesn't feel as if anyone can really relate to me right now. Emotionally this journey has been super tough.

    July sleevers?

    July. 13th here also!!
  12. Surgery is the 13th. I have no strict preoperative diet except for the day before surgery. I've cut out sugar, pop, and most carbs. I've lost 8 lbs or so. Starting to get very anxious and nervous,!!

    July sleevers?

    I completed my pre-admission tests today. Surgery is a go for July 13th. I'm nervous and very excited. I think today made it more of a reality! Started my new walking routine with some friends tonight. My doc doesn't require a pre-op diet (but it is recommended) other than 1 day clear liquids the day before surgery, but for my own safety and peace of mind I plan to adhere to a low calorie high protein diet in order to shrink my liver as much as possible. The next 2 weeks are going to fly by... by this time in 2 weeks I'll be on the losers bench.. EXCITING!!!
