Success with pregnancy



Recommended Posts

I'm 26 and plan on having the bypass later this year. My main reason for this surgery is because I'm ready to start a family. Is there anyone out there who had the same goal as me? If so how long afterwards, how ,how much did you weigh? Was the pregnancy a healthy one? Any advice or stories are welcome!

I know I am in this Same boat save i have a 5 year old but have been struggling since I she was 2. I'm going to be 29 this year and I had her at 23... I had my surgery on the 23rd of this month. Good luck with everything and as far as I've been reading through posts. As long as it's 12 months or later post op it's best but some have gotten pregnant right away and still managed to come out at the end alright.

I had the sleeve on the 26th but having children was one of my main reasons for doing so.I have been told to wait atleast 18 months before pregnancy.

Wanting children is my number 1 motivation for having this surgery. Im 30 and have been unable to get pregnant. Hoping that will all change soon. Gl everyone :)

      I'm trying to give these people all my labs and it's so hard! I had to do number 2 in a bag and send it in for the lab to test it. CHILE! Why did I poop in the container and when I went to drop it off, that part of the hospital was closed?!  Sigh. AWKWARD. I'll drop it off today after work tho. Feeling great!

      Getting a little nervous about post surgery life adaptation. I really want to succeed, but habits are so hard to break.

      Good news and Meh news...
      Meh: so I think I experienced/am experiencing my first stall-ish since surgery and now I get how frustrating it can be!  So annoying to wake up every morning to watch the scale report a gain or loss of the same 1.5 pounds for over 2 weeks.  *sigh*.  Some say put the scale away, but I log my weight every morning to get a daily moving average of my weight.  So long as this moving average is not heading upwards (which it isn’t and hasn’t since post-op) then I am good with my curent “minimalist” weekly weight loss rate, however small I think it is 🙄.
      However.
      The Good news:
      To allow for some self back patting, and to remind myself of the bigger picture, I set a bunch of interim goals/milestones... a few of which are 10lbs increment weight loss goals:
      So this morning, after hovering within 1.5 pounds of an interim goal for over 2 weeks, I weighed in at 164.8, and officially lost 70 lbs!  In 4 months.  That is 30% of my starting body weight.  Or the equivalent of my 10 year old neice. How crazy is that.
      Next Goal: weigh in at 162lbs to be merely overweight (and not obese!)

      I am in the Pre-Op stage.  I have 4 more nutrition classes to go to.  I've had my endoscopy with favorable results although I was told I had an abnormal z-line.  Everything looks good so far.  Had my team appointment with the psychologist and have my pulmonologist  this week.  I chose the sleeve
