36 and sleeved in June 2014. In addition to being high risk because of my age I also have a uterine complication. I am currently 15 weeks along and have lost 20 pounds since becoming pregnant. Extreme morning sickness is to blame. I'm worried about my health and my babies. I'm hoping this forum can help me get through this.....as I see I'm not alone in being pregnant! :)

not to take this off topic but is it universal that a pregnancy is "high risk" simply bc the woman had ANY bariatric surgery (sleeve, band, etc.)? or does it have to be one of the malabsorbative ones (bypass, RnY, etc.)?

thanks (from a future mama and potential sleever trying to make difficult decisions)

My OB doesn't consider me high risk and I've had 2 bariatric surgeries (lap band in 2008 and gastric sleeve in 2013). I am watching my fluids and Protein, but other than that, I'm not doing anything different than I did with my son - oh and I'm not gaining 100lbs either!!!

I am 35 as well, 3 mo preg with my third child. All of my preg were post op gastric bypass. The only real concerns with any if my preg as well as my current one is my severe anemia. I don't absorb Iron well and will prob have to have iron infusions again, but have had easy preg otherwise.

No Amnio,It puts the baby at too much of a risk Fluid loss. What does the Doc want to do that for? To check for issues I'm sure. But, either way, you'll love your baby. I had my daughter at 36, my son at 35 and they told me he had a soft marker for Down's syndrome. I was scared at first but , I realized if it's meant to be its meant to be. He is my child and I will do anything and everything to have my child :) He was born with out Down's syndrome. But our neonatologist said I had a 1:27 chance odd having a child with Down's. It doesn't matter,, the only thing that mattered was my son and me wanting to give him kisses all the time :)

It's been such a long time since I've been on here. I've had a second baby since. I got preggo just 4 months after having the last baby. I guess i don't absorb pills too well lol well I had my 3rd son 12/6/14. I gained 40 lbs and have lost 50 since having him!

Oh that's odd...I'm currently 36w6d pregnant with my first but I'm high-risk because of my blood pressure. The doctors had no concern over me having the sleeve but I wonder if other wls may cause some to be high risk. The one good thing about high risk is I'm able to see the baby more because I have more scans to make sure he's growing :-) I'm sure you'll be just fine :-)

I am 36 and 20 months post op and I just found out I am 5 weeks pregnant. I am scared of everything this go round. I have had two children previous to surgery; however that was 13 years ago. I am afraid of gaining too much weight, afraid of not gaining enough, my age and just how much this is going to change everything. I am excited now that the shock has worn off but so nervous. Any support, suggestions or stories would be apperciated.

I'm 28, post op with the sleeve, 5.5 weeks pregnant and considered high risk because of my previous fertility issues and they just want to make sure baby is growing as it should. Not many doctors are even aware that the sleeve isn't malabsorptive, they just bundle all the bariatric surgeries as the same...

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?

        Are you on meds for reflux? If not you should be at this point. If you are already on reflux meds get in touch with your surgeon asap as this is not normal. If fact i would be getting in touch with the surgeon either way. I hope your issue is resolved and you feel better soon

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.
