I was about 1 yr 8 months when I found out I was pregnant. My initial symptoms wre my full feeling and nausea feeling were different then normal sleeve feeling. :)

I've just found out I'm pregnant and I'm 18 months post op. We've been trying for about 3 months and this will be our fourth ( 1 boy and 2 girls).

I think what felt different for me was that I simply have little to no appetite for anything except grilled meats and fish.

I conceived 4 weeks after surgery! I am now 15 + 1 weeks....

I'm scared - it's far too soon!

I was 4 months post-op when I found out I was pregnant. I am now 17weeks pregnant and 7 months post-op. I have been having nausea and vomiting since about 6 weeks pregnant. But other than that everything seems to be fine :)

I just found out and I am 4 months out. I haven't lost any weight for a couple of months now, though. I had a lower BMi to start out.

I am a month out and still haven't had a period. I'm hoping that eventually things will right themselves because my main motivation for having the surgery was to start a family!

This surprise pregnancy happened at 17 mos post sleeve.

I was a very high BMI sleeve patient so even thou I've lost 140lbs I have about 40 - 55 to get to goal.

I really wish I had gotten to goal as it's so hard watching the scale go up instead of down. I'm 25 weeks and up 8lbs. My OB is ok if I hold steady or if I gain. I'm hoping not to gain more then another 5 - 7 lbs total. That way after delivery I should be at my lowest weight...

I'm so excited to see all of these responses. I'm 25 and have PCOS. My OB suggested the sleeve and I have been on the fast track to have this done. My surgery is this week on the 30th. My husband and I have been TTC for 2 years now and I feel so lost not having gotten pregnant these past 2 years. But the Sleeve is in my future so a baby to come also.

Prayers for all!

I got pregnant technically 3 weeks post op. My baby is healthy- due in april. I have lost 45 lbs since having surgery and my weight has been at a stall for a few months which is fine because the baby is getting what it needs from me . I'm sure once I have the baby I will lose more consistently . congrats to y and everything will be fine! PS I noticed post op pregnancy way more heartburn so be prepared lol

I found out I was pregnant in September last year, so I was about 16-17 months post op. I'm 37 weeks pregnant now and just had my 2 year anniversary of surgery on May 2nd.

My symptoms were just a missed period. I tracked my period religiously on an app on my phone, so when I still hadn't gotten it on the day it should have ENDED, I took a pee-test and was positive. I wasn't trying to get pregnant, but the only "birth control" we used was the pull out method, which obviously isn't a good method, lol.

I'm 34 and this is my first, I really didn't think I'd ever have children because of my weight in the past. So I'm glad that I was able to conceive without the stress of TRYING to conceive! I literally had my last period on my 34th bday and cried that night, thinking "I'm never going to have children, it's too late for me now..." something in my mind said if I didn't have a child before turning 35, I never would. So turning 34 was bittersweet because I felt like my time was up, and I was finally getting to a point in my life where I WANTED children.

Well... those tears were heard by someone, because the next time I ovulated, I got knocked up! :)

      Meal replacement shakes are soooooo good when you have a sore throat and don't feel good enough to cook. Plus, I always have lots of them at home. So I'm not tempted to grab crap from McDonalds (which has the best cold "medication").

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

        Cholesterol seems to be odd that way. I've got a suuuuper skinny brother-in-law who has sky high cholesterol. So don't let the whole "overweight" thing fool you. They seem to find it in people who have the genetic predispositions for it nowadays it seems. Our bodies are really still a mystery of how they react to certain changes. Just keep at it and keep talking to your doctor. Who knows, you could be a medical mystery?!? Embrace the challenge.

        Think of it this way, you now have an excuse to try ostrich meat! http://safariostrich.co.za/2016/06/ostrich-meat-benefits/

        PS. Gah hormones!

      2. Arabesque

        My dietician thinks it may be the regulatory hormones too & that my liver & gall could be having a freak out from the weight loss. It may be causing my low BP too. Hopefully the abdominal ultra sound will show something when I get the results.
        My maternal grandmother had issues which developed in her 70s but she’s the only one. No heart probs, no cholesterol worries in any one else (incl 13 aunts & uncles & my parents) - cancer seems to be our worry - sad face. And they still live into the 80s & 90s.
        Just strange that for 53 yrs my levels have been normal & 6months of weight loss & it’s now high.
        Don’t know about eating ostrich though that could just be burying my head in the sand - tee hee hee.

        PS - My menopausal symptoms are still MRI. Even with a 42.5 degree day (108F) last Friday not a twinge of a hot flush. Best non scale victory ever. Guess you win some hormonal battles but lose others.

        PPS - Wrapping Christmas presents with air con cranked up today even though it’s only 33C. Ho ho ho

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.
