Thanks for the info. I hope to follow through your pregnancy & see how things end up. My birthday is July 7th. You should try to hang in there one more day....7 is a lucky number, especially 7th month, 7th day.....lol....

Hope all goes well with this pregnancy. I hope you keep us all updated.

Thanks,

Marci

Ange,

Thank you for the update. I'm glad your morning sickness seems to be subsiding. Congratulations too on your continued weight loss.

My surgeon said it would be safe to begin trying after my weight has been stable for a couple of months so that is my plan. I hope to get to goal by the end of January and then start trying after I've been there for a while.

I wish you continued health through this second trimester!

I had two babies at over 300 pounds. I had beautiful healthy babies. The only thing that was hard for me was that I wanted to loose weight before the second and he was a suprise when I was working out and dieting. (which wasn't working anyway). I didn't have any issue with Diabetes or anything. My blood pressure was never high and I carried to full term. My first baby that is now 21 months was 8lbs 12oz and my second one that came just two months ago was 9lbs 11oz. Big babies run in my family. My sis is small and both her babies were over 8lbs. Anyway...my issues were phyisical it was really hard on my knees carrying around that much Fluid and weight. I couldn't play with my little one while pregnant and I still find it difficult. I have major lower back issues and my boobs got even bigger with the second one. So I guess what I am saying is if I could have been thinner before getting pregnant with the second one I would do it. Now I am having the surgery in Jan. and I just had the Mirena inserted so I don't have to worry about another pregnancy accident. But I think that I want to try for another one in about 5 years. I hope that helped. I know we forget what it was like when we were pregnant before. Just coming off the whole experience..even if you have a healthy pregnancy it's no fun when your overweight.

almost 22 weeks and had a scan that shows everything is very very normal... all the measurements and functions were spot on average/**normal** got to love that! i am told however that i i wont know if i got a big baby till im much further along.

i know i got a comedian baby tho.... ***baby says*** i want choc...... (only twice now) but i cant tolerate choc!!!! i eat it anyway and.... rot roe!!!! lol problems!! i havent worked out weather the tolerance level for fryed food/smells is from the baby or from the surgury!!! hope its the surgury tho. i have trouble going into a any space where there is fryed food cooking???? (one way to cure the old kfc habbit) again... very happy for that! it seems that there are many things that i have gone off since the surgury/pregnancy. most of them are positive dislikes. hell i have even started a few new habbits that i know are way better for me...and bub, not to mention my daughter! so.... many positives still comming. still craving some sweet naughty stuff... but...if i dont cook it, i cant eat it. moral of the story is dont cook it!!!! hmmm write that down angie!!

cheers

So glad you're sleeve and/or baby is helping you make plenty of healthy lifestyle changes. And glad everything is progressing so well!!! Thanks for keeping us updated. We're going to start trying to conceive this spring, but we tried for two years with no luck, so I'm not holding my breath...just going to live vicariously through you;-)

Hi folks!!!

been awhile. well im happy to report that i am now 33.1/2 weeks and doing well. i havent been on for awhile as i been getting a bit tired at night and just havent managed to get in here and have an update!

A few weeks ago I was put through the gestational diabeties training because the docs were unable to get an accurate reading with the glucose challenge test. (it was wayyyyy too much sugar so i lost both attempts) the docs wanted me to track my blood sugar levels just incase so it just made sence to get me in the programe. well it turned out that in all the testing i have come up with some low readings with a few hints of hypoglycima. After seeing some specialists at our big mothers hospital, i was quickly reasured that the low readings i was getting were pretty normal and expected. most women experience some low readings at times. well i have to admit that i was told to start eating more, and as my low readings were comming in i was actually eating more, (feeling sick from eating all the extra morning/afternoon teas all over the place) but it was doable. i just had to keep my carb intake up.... OH and NOT give up the coffee milk!!! (go figure!!! been trying to kick that one for ages!)

I was a bit scared to tell you the truth, but i was reasured that the baby will take what it needs, i just have to worry about looking after myself. it turns out that the docs were just making sure they were not missing anything by putting me in the progie.

I am told i should have a normal 8Lbs baby this time (first baby was 9 14 so i was very happy hearing THAT) and that i am doing very well. I feel better than i have in years even at this later stage of pregnancy. im still up and down the stairs with no major issues and have only just last week stopped my exercise class, doctors orders.

Its amazing how physically better off i have been this time around in comparision to the last pregnancy. im doing soooo much more this time around and copeing 500% better with movement and life in general. its nice to still have a spring in my step when i go into the maternity clinic and hardly even look pregnant against some of the girls that have that HUGE bump and Gummy leg/hip. my weight has been up and down a little like 1 lbs up 1 down.....1 up....... 2lbs down.... so overall i have still lost weight, even managing to crack the 50Kg for those of you who follow the Kg measurements <grins>

ohhhh 1 excelent thing to mention, i have had NO itchiness of the skin. i have been shrinking and growning at the same time which also means no 'extra' stretch marks lolol happy days. some of my skinny friends have got 1 inch wide streachies from child bearing and im truely happy to report this isnt the case for those of us with/previously had, a generous beam.

till soon everyone.

Ange.

It is such a relief to find somebody in a similar situation. I'm 16 weeks pregnant, 19 weeks out from surgery, and have only just recently found out I am pregnant (they missed it the first 14 weeks thinking it was everything else under the sun so many tests but nobody thought pregnancy!). It was quite a shock but a happy shock. I have been sick every day of the pregnancy but thought it was just the sleeve surgery - it's slowly getting better and I can eat a lot more now (a whole salad sandwich in under 10 mins easily without throwing up). But a little bit of chocolate or some twisties which i crave and its spew city. I have lost 13kg but now im getting so hungry i can't see the weight loss continuing, though i wish it would i'm so close to my healthy bmi goal, just a few kilos away.

Congrats on your pregnancy Ange and I look forward to reading more about it especially how the last few weeks and birth go :001_tt2:
