Hi all,

Just wondering which one you take?? We're not tying yet just getting ready.

They are usually large and I'm scared to even try.

My doc gave me vitalfol-one. It's a blue soft gel and she said its the smallest.

I might be able to get it down but I'm afraid to try

Thanks

i gained 35 pounds during pregnancy. did you have full restriction removed? i had half of the restriction removed during the first trimester because i was getting stuck on everything. the rest of the pregnancy i had 3.5cc in a 10cc band. i also ate small meals/snacks every 2-3 hours like i did pre-pregnancy.

i found that i had less sickness in the morning if i ate something right before i went to bed. something small like Peanut Butter and crackers. my doc also prescribed an Rx prenatal that had ginger added that also helped with the nausea called B-Nexa. other than that, some flat ginger ale sometimes helped, but only occasionally. i wasn't stricken with horrid morning sickness, but only mild nausea that lasted like a few weeks, but the typical suggestions/remedies didn't do much to stop the feelings.

My OB said I could take Flintstones chewables with Iron as a prenatal. I also have to take a separate DHA supplement -- that's the hard part for me, as lately I have had trouble swallowing it. I have heard that there are some liquid DHA supplements available, so I am going to check with my doctor's office Monday about that. But the chewables work great for your average prenatal vitamin...they have the folic acid and iron needed for the baby's growth.

@Hope: I had to switch to Vitafol-One because the generic ones I prescribed were just not working...love them! I have no trouble taking them and there's no fish oil so nasty aftertaste.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
