    Due Feb 2011

    Hi there Everyone! I am due Feb. 10th with a boy. I already have a three year old little girl, so we are very excited to have one of each. I've gained about ten pounds so far, which is definitely hard on the ol' ego after working so hard to lose all that weight, but I know it's for a good cause and the band will help me lose it afterwards! Let's all stay in touch!

    28 weeks preggers with strange symptom

    This could be from the baby growing and everything pushing up into your diaphragm, and it can spasm which causes the hiccup. I wouldn't worry about it!

    Weight gain ahhh!

    I am about 27 weeks pregnant and have gained about 10-12 pounds. I was hoping to not gain much more, but I still have many weeks to go, so we'll see. I'm trying not to stress about it and know that the band will aid me in losing all of it once the baby is here! Enjoy your pregnancy!

    Stomach feels irritated

    Thank you for your response...I did leave my surgeon a message on his cell phone today, so I'm just waiting for him to give me a call. I had just the broth from wonton Soup for lunch today and that didn't cause me any pain, so that was nice...but still feeling a little indigestion. I'll be curious what he says I should do...I guess it could be very possible I need a slight unfill. I'll let you know what happens!
  7. I posted this on the complications forum, but no one has made any comments on it...so I posted here as well... Over about the last three days, when I eat my stomach just feels irritated. It does not feel irritated when I'm not eating, although I feel a little bit of reflux in the back of my throat, which I never have. Is it possible I've irritated my stomach lining around the band or something? Should I go on liquids for a few days to let my stomach calm down? I will also call and leave my surgeon a message and see what he can tell me as well.
  8. I too, not long after surgery thought a Slurpee was a safe way to get that Cola flavor in, then I read the nutrition information about Slurpee's online...and they ARE carbonated. So just be careful with them!

    Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred

    Hey Everyone! I just finished day 10 of the 30 Day Shred, and I definitely feel stronger and it's not feeling quite as hard. But don't get me wrong...it's still definitely hard! I haven't done all ten days in a row, I've spaced out a few days off evenly throughout that time. I bought the DVD at Target for $9. Pretty good deal if you ask me! I'll keep you posted as I continue with the program! Oh, and Jillian is tough, but now "scary!" She makes you work hard for those 20 minutes...but in the end you have to realize it's only 20 minutes and anyone can do that!

    Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred

    I am on Day 5 of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. It's only a 20 minute workout, but it kicks a$$! Even after only 5 days I feel stronger. I am alternating right now between Level 1 and Level 2 just to vary it up. Anyone else doing this program? Anyone who has made it through 30 Days who can report their results?

    reality check after banding

    I think most of us totally understand this concept. I definitely am addicted to carbohydrates. I could eat nachos everyday! I realized I have to eat low carb to stay in control of what I eat, or I literally have no control. The band has been a tool for portion control, but it doesn't make my food choices for me (well...it helps a little). WLS is definitely NOT the easy way out! We still have to work for it!
  13. Hey everyone...I am so excited because I weighed this morning and I have entered ONEderland! No more 200s for me EVER again! Yaaaaaay!
  14. Hey Everyone - I need to get a fill but want to avoid the whole trying to contact Susie ordeal....I seem to have misplaced my card with Dr. Chae's cell phone number on it. Or someone mentioned calling his nurse too, to set up an appointment? Could someone e mail me those numbers possibly? I would SO appreciate it!

    So happy!

    That's amazing! We are all proud of you!
