Pregnancy Weight Gain After Gastric Sleeve Surgery



Recommended Posts

I was just wondering if anyone has had any problems losing the "baby weight" after having the VSG surgery. I am contemplating having another child when my IUD is done in about 2 years. I already have 2 year old twins, but I had them pre-op. I am terrified that I will not be able to lose the weight I will gain with a pregnancy. Any helpful advice would be much appreciated!!

I haven't delivered yet, but I do not foresee any issues losing pregnancy weight. In all honesty, all I'll do is go back to lower carbs, and higher Protein to drop the weight. At 6 months pregnant, I've gained 18-19lbs, and my projected gain is 30-35lbs because of my starting weight with the pregnancy.

I went through pregnancy with a Lapband and only gained 5 pounds. I was able to get in all the proper nutrition and Vitamins I needed and delivered a healthy, beautiful son! Unfortunately, I lost the lapband and gained alot of weight back. But now I am sleeved and loving it! I'm hoping when I get close to goal weight we can try for another and will look forward to this great tool helping me through another healthy pregnancy :)

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
