HELP!!! VSG post op diet with pregnancy



Recommended Posts

I really need everyones help! I am 8 months post VSG and still have quite a bit to lose. I realized that my loss has halted. I have been confused about it because I have been working out an hour 6 days a week rotating weights and cardio which is new for me, but I have been doing that for a month now. However, I have not been able to stick to my low carb high Protein regimen. One great "side effect" of the VSB is that it was easier for me to eat like I needed to, so this was suprising for me. Anyway, I just found out I am pregnant, which is the biggest shock of my life!! I have four kids already and my hubby and I were done! I have mixed emotions about the whole thing and one of the biggest questions I have is diet. I really am scared about gaining and I would actually like to continue to lose. I am still quite heavy and I really don't feel I would be jeapordizing the baby as long as I ate the right way. So, how should I eat? I am thinking stick to high protein and eat good whole grain carbs. Before I tried to stay away from any kind of bread and didn't really eat fruit just vegies but I guess that is not a good idea now. Any replies would be hugely appreciated!!! :001_unsure:

congratulations on your new baby, i would think that at eight months out you would be able to eat healthy for the baby and yourself. i know there is a lady on this forum that just delivered a little girl and was able to keep from graining extra weight during her pregnancy. the great thing about the sleeve is that is is a tool that you will always have. kelly

Good to stay away from breads, sugars, and other simple carbs, but you want to have the good carbs (whole grains, fruits and veggies) so you don't go into ketosis, which can harm a developing fetus. Congratulations! :thumbup:

Thank you for the congrats! I think I am still in shock. I thought we were done :) I had just become so serious about my working out and really trying hard to get more weight off and so I feel kinda disappointed (though babies are always a joy) but your right KBL, the VSG is a great tool! I am going to try very hard this time to work with it and make the most out of this pregnancy. Eat as healthy as I can and keep up with my exercise. Thanks Stacy for reiterating what I had thought. Obviously I just need to stay away from all that junk food that I ate with all my other pregnancies. Get my carbs from fruit, vegies and whole grains. I really hope it works. I am kinda freaking out...about the whole thing really. This baby is a HUGE suprise and we are trying to make it a positive thing. All my goals just seem to be gone with the wind, though I know deep down, that is not true, they just may need to be put on hold. I appreciate any support and encouraging words from all of you!! :thumbup:

well i know in time you will see this baby as a blessing to you and your family..... i had infertility for 13 years before our daughter was born via a gestational carrier. i dreamed of a "surprise". she is now 10 months old and we are having a son in two weeks via a different gestational carrier. so we will be new mommies together. i have not had the sleeve yet but hope to have the sleeve in dec or january. i have to wait until i have some FMLA time off from work. having these babies back to back has used up all my FMLA time off. where is cottonwood? as you can see i live in the tucson area. kelly

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
