14 months post-op and carrying: help!



Recommended Posts

I was sleeved 7/12/16, and my husband and I just found out this week I'm pregnant. This is #2, but the 1st post-op. Of course, I let my surgeon's office know, and the secretary gave me the recommendations because the Dr and RN were off on Friday. So naturally I turned to Dr. Google, and it's made me a wreck!

I've been taking prenatal Vitamins since we started trying for #2, supplementing my B12 and Calcium. My B12 was already sky-high, and studies I've been reading say that such high doses can increase risks for autism.

I also am worried about what my intake should be. Should I be increasing my Proteins at all? What should I be aware of with weight gain?

Any thoughts or ideas would be super helpful.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!! Sorry that Dr Google has wrecked such a joyous moment for you. I am a clinician but certainly do not specialize in prenatal areas. There is so much we don't know about what causes autism. There are several studies out there still in progress. As we all know, Dr Google is never short of answers on anything and it can be hard to sift through to decipher what is credible and what is not. I would strongly suggest you wait until you talk to the doctor and dietitian on Monday to get evidence based advice. Hope all goes well! Congratulations again !!!!
