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 met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
