9months post op and 5 weeks pregnant



Recommended Posts

I just found out I’m pregnant. I’m nervous I’m only 9 months post op. My doctor said to wait at least a year. I’ve lost about 116 lbs and my weight pops has slowed considerably. Anyone have any positive stories?

Congratulations!!! There are many people on YouTube who documented their Journey and have had successful pregnancies and healthy babies.

I had my own personal experience and it did not go well. It's not something I talk about. However, it is best that you find an OBGYN that is also aware of patients who have had weight loss surgery.

Thank you for your support. I’m sorry to hear your experience wasn’t positive.

Do u mind explaining what happened? Did you get pregnant after wls. I'm curious because every piece of info helps with these types of situations. However, If it's too much I understand.

I got pregnant after WLS. I got pregnant about 3 months out. I was not aware that I was. I did not know (I rarely get periods, so not getting one was normal). I was working out a lot, not sleeping enough, highly stressed out from work, not eating like I should and skipping Vitamins. I was about 5 weeks when I miscarried and found out.

It really messed with me mentally because I felt like had I known, I would have done better. I would have relaxed more, slept more when I was tired, took my vitamins. Made myself eat more. I fell into a depression for a little bit, blaming myself.

However, since I realized that I could have children, should the day come again, I want to be the best and most active me I could possibly be.

I never said anything about it on here because I just did not want people judging me. I never thought I could have children. I was told from 16 that it was not an option.

This is why I say, find an OBGYN who is familiar with WLS and pregnancies. Make sure you are eating enough, cut back on the exercise and when you are tired, sleep. Get a good night sleep. Do not put undue strain on your body and do not let things stress you out.

I know you wanted a positive story but sometimes the negative ones, help the most.

      Hey all! So I went in for my weight management class. I thought that would be my last one but I actually have to wait until the nutritionist clears me. She has to decide if I'm ready. I''m not mad at it. It looks like my surgery will be happening in the summertime. So instead of focusing on the surgery date, I'm putting my energy into losing weight and making sure all these appointments are taken care of. It feels like doing mini quests on a video game before trying to fight the BIG BOSS. I'm not ready for the BIG BOSS yet. haha. Feeling pretty good!

      Finished my 6th and final NUT appointment yesterday.  Everything is done except the psych eval and submittal to insurance.  I did everything required of me including the 100 pages plus of food tracking, I lost 5% of my total weight, and I went to every NUT appointment.  
      Hoping for the best, things seem to be lining up well for me and in the end, I think I will be able to fully have my wife on board with this whole thing.  She says she is, but I know she doesn't think I should do it.  Just like I replied to another post earlier, i'm doing this either way, it's my decision at this point and I know I can get her to come around at some point and maybe even convince her to look into it as well.
      Also, I just started with an APAP machine a couple weeks ago and "holy sh*t" has my quality of life improved greatly so far.  I wish I had looked into this years ago.  I didn't think I had apnea until I had the study done and i stopped breathing an average of 12 times an hour.  That's nuts...

      I'm 13 years out from having weight loss surgery. I would have to say it was the best choice I have ever made. I have been successful BUT now I'm feeling like I'm sliding back and getting comfortable with old eating habits. I absolutely do not want to ever go back to where I came from. I'm just needing support and some pointers to get me focused again. Any one have any thoughts or suggestions. Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

        I’m new but I wish you luck in getting back on track. Maybe see a nutritionalist first.
