Well I am now 11 weeks pregnant and baby and I are both doing fine. I have lost a few pounds but only about 6 which is good. Eating is a struggle to get all my Protein in and try to eat veggies and fruits that baby needs. I had my first ultrasound to make sure baby is fine and thank god baby is good. We will be monitored closely but just as a precaution. Morning sickness was rough at first but is calming down. I go in next week to see both the doc and will have more to report then. :) thank you to everyone with your kind words and thoughts!

how are you doing? do you have an update? Fellow pregnant sleever here :-)

Hi :) we are both doing well. I am now 16 weeks and have had 2 ultrasounds just make sure all is well. I am finally eating a decent amount and I don't feel like I'm starving my lil one anymore and I am not gaining excessively either. So far I've only gained 4 lbs which both doctors are please with. :)

God's got this......and yes, this baby was conceived for a reason only known to God. Every person on this planet is here or was here because of God. It may seem like an accident....but it is not really because this is God's plan.

So excited!! We just found out its a boy! ;) he is healthy and perfectly normal and right on target. I have only gained 5 lbs in 18 weeks and dr says I'm doing well and so is baby. We have only one other boy and had tried 3 more times to have another and not even trying and we got him. So yes god does have his plans and I'm so grateful for them. :) thank you guys for all your kind words and support.

I'm three months post surgery and took a pregnancy test today that showed positive...going to the doctor tomorrow...Does being pregnant stop your weight loss? Has anyone maintain or continued to lose weight by exercising?

I am 7 mos post op and 7 mos pregnant. I had an IUD and still ended up becoming pregnant. My pregnancy is also unplanned but still a blessing :) my baby is doing very well :) an I've lost 115 lbs in these 7 mos. I still have 80 lbs to lose but I know I will be able to do that once she gets here. Everything will work out for the best :) I will say that this pregnancy has been the best even with the more nausea I've had.

How did you manage to still lose weight during your pregnancy?

I don't really know. I only consume about 800 calories a day. It could be that I chase my 1 and 2 yr olds around all over the place. I was told by my surgeon to lay off the cardio because I was losing too fast. So I haven't done any cardio for about 6 mos. I get sick pretty often from pregnant and probably surgery mixed. But the baby is doing great!

Oh wow! I was heavy when I had my daughter and when I lost 30lbs everyone was freaking out and putting me on high calorie shakes for geriatrics lol!! I had a lap band at the time and with the baby and the band in, my tummy just had no room and when it did, morning sickness shoved everything out lol! I stopped losing around the last 3 months or so, but still didn't gain any before delivery. My doctor would have flipped if I lost as much as you have!! lol As long as the baby is healthy though, that's what matters :) My daughter ended up 3 premature, they said from the "stress on my body" but after 4 days in NICU she was able to go home when I did.

Oh and don't worry about me getting to skinny!! Lol as soon as that baby was out and the pressure was off my band, it quit working again! Lol I easily gained it all back after she was born! Ugh!!!

It depends on the person. I stopped losing almost as soon as I found out. But I maintained my weight the first two and half months and just now started gaining. So far only 5 lbs. dr says as long as the baby is gaining I'm ok. I do have a few extra ultra sounds to check his weight and so far so good. I have been told that many do continue to lose. I still exercise also :)
