Is anyone actively trying to conceive now? I had surgery in February 2013, suffered some serious complications, but recovered well and now my husband and I are actively trying to conceive baby #2. I was 255lbs when I got pregnant with baby #1 and 325 when he was born. I am now 173. I never thought I would be so excited to be pregnant again - but I am so dedicated to having a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.

My husband and I were trying and our 3rd cycle we did it! I just found out 7/3 with a hpt that I am pregnant. I tested everyday since then today being the last test( which of course was positive) and a missed period! .. this is my first time so I am still in disbelief :) We have an appointment with the OB/GYN on thursday I am so excited!!

Good luck to you guys!

I hope this isn't TMI but I do not need lube but I had heard of people using PreSeed to help conceive... We used it the last two times. I'm not sure if that helped or it was just our time but just thought I would share in case you are looking for a maybe boost :-)

Me an my hubby want to ttc very much but my dr is very persistent about us waiting at least 9 months before ttc. I was recently sleeved on 5/28, an I'm already down 33 lbs! Went from a size 22 to a size 16;)

On another note 1 week after surgery I started cycle, an it lasts almost 2 weeks! That might sound bad to some but for me it was great considering with my pcos I never have a normal 1. To my surprise exactly 1 month later I start again;)

Already starting to regulate! Congrats an good lunch on ur journey, an hopefully we will all soon have a bundle of joy;)

We are TTC#4, which would be the 2nd pregnancy since I was sleeved. I conceived just over a year after surgery, which is a little of a no no but my doctor was okay since I'd lost 90% of my excess weight. I went on to have good pregnancy and an amazing labour and birth. We're trying for #4 now, but it doesn't look like it will be as easy to conceive, babes #1 and 2 were the result of a lot of fertility treatments and #4 might need a boost too. #3 was a blessing.

I did metformin with the first 2, but I don't want it this time since I am still breastfeeding. Likely use menopur again.

How long after surgery did your doctor wait before he put you on metformin? I'm actually considering going on it myself. I used to take it with chlomid before my surgery but was told to stop all meds for fertility purposes until at least 9 months after surgery. Dr wants me to wait at least a year to try conceiving big said at minimum 9 months. My surgery was 5/28/14 an I'm thinking about starting the metformin now.

      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?

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

        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.
