4 months post op and I'm pregnant



Recommended Posts

I'm 4 months post op and just found out I'm about 6 weeks pregnant. This will be my third child and in no way was this planned. I'm very worried! I'm worried about having a healthy baby and if my body can even handle this?!?!

I got pregnant 2 months post op... It.has been hard on me because ive had such horrible morning sickness and definitely havent been able to get my Protein or anything to stay in! My baby is fine though, Im just suffering. I didnt plan getting pregnant so soon as this is my first child.. And after everything saying negative for 3 yrs and fertility drs I really didnt think it would be so quick!

I have had such a ruff time since finding out I'm pregnant. I will be 6 months post op this month and I'm 14 weeks pregnant. I've been in the hospital 2 times for nausea, vomiting, and dehydration. Now I'm currently on a reflex medication along with 2 nausea meds. I've had nausea since being sleeved and since becoming pregnant it's gone 10 times worse. I'm seeing my OB doctor every 2-3 weeks and they are monitoring me very closely. So far the baby is doing fine so blessed for that:) I wish all of you best of luck! Let's stay in touch ladies.

I got pregnant 3 weeks after being sleeved. Yeah am not sure exactly how all that worked out. Anyways I am 28 weeks now yes vomiting was bad in the first trimester but i try hard to keep up with hydration. I have lost 30lbs since i found out and my baby is measuring ahead. I am on acid reflux meds because i have it bad but i did have it before baby. Nausea is tolerable you will get used to it! Congrats

I got pregnant 2 weeks after being sleeved. During the pregnancy I lost about 50lbs. Some of the docs were worried because I was so ill and my food intake was limited. Just eat right when you can. Usually the baby won't go without because it takes from you and whatever you have stored.

I ended up with an 8lb, 8oz perfectly healthy boy. There's not AS much to worry about with a sleeve compared to the bypass.

And don't let them tell you that because you're sleeved you have to have a c-section. I've heard if people being told that.

How has your pregnancy gone so far? How many days late where you before you tested?

I'm a little worried too. I still haven't started my period and I'm 3 days late. My man and I never use protection at all.

Update: I'm not 7 months post op and 5 months pregnant. I was 203 when I found out I was pregnant and now weigh 183. I just when in for an ultrasound and everything with the baby is good. I'm having a girl and she is doing great and her growth is right on track! I will keep everyone posted on weigh loss/grain. I hope the rest of you are doing good☺️
