Don't be scared Meamo. *big hug* Contact your doctor and an OB/GYN. They will help guide you through your pregnancy to ensure that you and you little one are eating enough and remain healthy.

Congratulations!!! :)

Meamo, don't be scared. Breathe. It has been done before. :) My OBGYN (yes, OBGYN!), got pregnant just 4 months after having gastric by-pass surgery. That was the healthiest of her three pregnancies, her baby girl is now 4 years old and healthy, and she looks more beautiful and fit than ever. You will have to be extra careful and diligent about your Vitamin intake, Calcium, etc. and stay in close contact with your doctors. Here is her story: http://www.endtheweight.com/bariatrics/shieva.htm

On a side note, congratulations!! Is this your first?

Hi Pals! I'm experiencing my first stomach bug since surgery and am just a mess! I'm struggling to keep any calories in and am really only able to tolerate a few saltines and full calorie Gatorade. Both of these go against everything I have been trying to accomplish the past six months and I know this probably sounds foolish but does anyone have any other suggestions on getting any Protein in or at least no carbs and added sugar?

Please don't think I'm nuts over here... I just know what a slippery slope full calorie drinks have been for me in the past and carbs are definitely enemy #1. The first day of the bug I tried just Water and then water with a little crystal lite but the sugar substitute made things even worse.

Thanks my December Sleever Pals. I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the warm weather with your skinny, hot bodies!!! :)

I am so sorry you are feeling this way. I think staying hydrated should be #1. I would not worry about Protein until you are feeling better. I am not a dr but important to not get dehydrated. Get better fast!

Sleeved on 12/26 and I have only lost 25 lbs. I am beyond frustrated. I am hypothyroid and have struggled since the surgery to get my dosage right. I think I finally have achieved that but I need to do something to jump start me again.

Wow, that must be so frustrating! I'm so sorry! Now that you feel you have the doseage right, do you think you can kick start it again with a week of liquid diet or liquid diet or very strict low carb high Protein? I haven't had to go back to the liquid diet yet, but there are times I get very strict with the carbs so I can see some movement on the scale. I eat lots of deli meat/salami for lunch and dinner with a Premier Protein drink for Breakfast. Good luck! I hope that it picks up for you now that your meds are adjusted.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
