2.5 months post op and pregnant


6 posts in this topic

Hi all, I've been on BariatricPal for a few years now, on and off. Came back looking for advice or similar stories. I had my VSG done on 7/6/17. I am currently 5w5d pregnant, I was pregnant up until 15 weeks last year and then miscarried (that was my second). My first appointment with my OB was yesterday and she referred me to a MFM for my care between the recent surgery and the 2 miscarriages she is afraid to take me on without supervision of a high risk specialist. Anyone else have a pregnancy so soon after WLS? Did you have any major complications? any advice? how was your eating during pregnancy?

This was UNPLANNED and UNEXPECTED, but nonetheless we are excited and praying all goes well. I don't think hubby and I could handle another loss

Well I wish I had experience with pregnancies after surgery- my kids are older- but I wanted to be the first one to say CONGRATULATIONS! We too lost several babies so I totally understand your trepidation - but you'll be great! This time's the charm! Congrats!

Thank you! So far so good. I'm almost 9 weeks.

My dietician and High risk OB doctor are working together for my care. They have me continuing with my bariatric Vitamins (when i can keep them down) with a separate folic acid supplement. I have lost 15 lbs since finding out about the pregnancy as morning (and noon, and night) sickness is kicking my butt. Other than that the doctors think all should go well. Surprisingly my surgeon congratulated me instead of lecturing me which was a relief! I was terrified to tell him but he was happy for my husband and I. This will be my rainbow baby after 2 losses so fingers and toes crossed it works out well for me and baby both!
