14 Months Post Op. 6 Weeks Pregnant. Protein Shakes?



Recommended Posts

Well I didn't quite get to my goal, about 47lbs short and now I've discovered I have a bun in the oven.

I have/had PCOS and my husband had motility issues so we thought it would never happen. Well we got the surprise of a lifetime. Now I'm wondering if Protein shakes(casein and isopure) are ok during pregnancy. They're a staple in my diet, i have a shake every morning for Breakfast.

Has anyone heard from their Dr about Protein shakes being okay during pregnancy?

I go see my Dr Wednesday but wanted to see what the concensus is.

I've been told Protein Shakes are a ok during pregnancy as long as that's not the only thing you are consuming, and not having way to much Protein.< /p>

shakes are fine according to my doc and for a while were the only way I could get real Protein due to morning sickness. shakes didn't bother me but just about all food made me sick for months.

They're a fantastic way to up your nutritional stats and add calories to your daily intake.

Congrats!

Again, no advice... just wanted to say congratulations from one PCOS-girl to another! Hope I am lucky too! My fiance and I have decided that at the end of this year we are going to take on a if it happens it happens approach. ;) I hope to get to goal first!

      Hey everyone!  It has been a while since I was on here.  I had a lap-band placed in 2014 but now I would like it revised to a gastric sleeve.  There are no drs here in Tallahassee (Florida) that do that and I need to go the self-pay route (my insurance will not cover it!)  Any recommendations on nearby doctors that do self-pay revision surgeries?

      Going in on Tuesday. Things are arranged (need to order a cab to the station because it's too early for a bus going there) and I'm getting more nervous by the hour.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.
