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!

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
