When did you get unfilled after finding out you were pregnant?



Recommended Posts

Don't feel bad for getting it all taken out. My best friend left in just 2cc's and it just about killed her. She refused to have those little cc's taken out and when it was getting closer to the end, she was in bad bad bad shape. She didn't gain a lot but just had a lot of complications. Everyone is different though, just remember it COULD have been bad :(

Yay I'm glad to see I'm not the only pregnant bandster here! I'm 10 weeks pregnant with 6ml in a 10ml band! I'm at my ideal weight of 10st 2lb and so far I have gained only 1lb. I hope to keep the weight off as much as possible. I'm getting a defill in 2 weeks as I think my band is getting too tight, I can eat a lot but I'm finding at night that a have major heart burn and even woke up to get sick in the middle of the night last night. I'm due Nov 16th when is everyone else due?

Congratulations!!!! I am 19 weeks now and have lost a pound or two since finding out in late January. I have not had any fill taken out, I am doing pretty good so far. I do have an appt with my lap band dr in early June to check in with him, may have some fill taken out then, we will see. I am due Sept 17th. OB is pleased that I have not gained any weight so far, but says between 5 months and thru the end of my pregnancy I should expect to gain no more than 15 pounds. I hope I stay within that guideline, sure do not want to gain any more than necessary. :rolleyes:

I am so gald that so many of you have shared your experience, thoughts and decisions. I am 13 weeks and for the past 2 weeks have had days here and there when i'm super tight and uncomfortable. Today and yesterady have been most recent. I haven't gotten anything solid down today even liquids are difficult. I haven't had any morning sickness and I know this is just my bad being too tight. My weight has pretty much stayed the same and I like to say I haven't gained anything however depending on the day I'm up or down 2-3 lbs. or exactly where I was before I found out so yes I haven't gained a pound. I called and spoke with the on-call doc (its sunday) and I am going to sip Water and/or gatorade tonight, go wo bed early (so I don't have to think about how much I want to eat) and go to see my doc at the earliest convience tomorrow. Don't want to get a complete unfill but a 1-2 cc sounds like it should do the trick. I'll check back in tomorrow evening. Thanks again to everyone who posted, you don't know how helpful this was it making me feel not so alone and unsure. Congratulations to everyone on their weight losses and pregancy.

My doctor made me get unfilled. He said he likes to have all the Fluid out of the band by 6 week pregnant if possible to ensure you get enough nutrients for your growing baby. I had the unfill right at 6 weeks and I'm now 11 weeks. I can definately tell a difference in how much I can eat.

I ended up never getting unfilled. It was a little tough but I was minus 13 pounds when I delivered!!! I gained 40 breastfeeding though. ICK! I was being bad though.. went off the diet. I Was filled again april 6th and am down a little over 20 pounds. Im getting discouraged but I have to keep reminding myself I just had a baby 9 months ago.. it takes time!!!

I didn't get an unfill with either of my babies. My PA got angry with me after my son was born and said I could've killed him. That was bullship! I haven't been back to that doctor since then! After my first I got a fill to help get the baby weight off but I was so tight I couldn't even drink Water. My daughter is 8 weeks old and I didn't get a fill or unfill with her. I am having issues eating right now so I think my hormones are screwing with me. I wouldn't recommend a fill until you are done breastfeeding...maybe that's what's making it weird for me! I am filled to 6/10 and I had no issues eating during pregnancy...just now! I'm hoping this passes soon cuz I'm hungry!

I had my second baby six months ago, and I didn't get unfilled during that pregnancy. My doctor normally unfills pregnant women, but I asked him to wait and see if I actually had problems. My baby was growing well at each OB appointment, and I wasn't having problems with the band. I gained about 15 pounds with the pregnancy, and he was born happy and healthy!

I got my first post-baby fill a couple of weeks ago (after I finished breastfeeding), and am again on a nice downward trend.

I had my unfill at around the same time. He did not take it all out but enough that I basically had no restriction. Just do your best. If you are going to overeat, eat healthy food for baby.

      Hey ya'll. SO. I got down to 199 for the weigh in but gained it all back right after. I have to do another month of weight management. They switched out the nutritionists at the last second and she said she doesn't pass anyone unless they have 5 veggies a week. I'm starting metformin and Farxiga today. Doc found a little bit of blood in my urine but wasn't too concerned. I'm trying not to freak myself out either. Depression is a little more intense than usual. I'm all over the damn place.

      3/19 - It wasn't a bad day I stayed up quite a bit much of the day. Have to focus on walking more before it gets too hot to walk outside at all.   Pain was less, but insomnia has kicked in the last two nights
