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! :)
