Pregnancy and weight gain



Recommended Posts

Has anyone gotten pregnant after the sleeve? I’m 10 weeks and having bad food aversions and nausea. Idk how I’m going to gain weight when I barely ate before pregnancy and now even less with pregnancy because nothing looks appetizing and I’m sick half the time (not throwing up just nausea). I’m just nervous I won’t be able to eat enough to gain the recommended weight for pregnancy. Sigh! 😞

There's a reason they tell you to wait 18 months after surgery to get pregnant. Pregnancies before a year post op are high risk pregnancy and you should consult your team immediately. Also, pregnancy too soon after surgery carries extra risks for the baby...neural tube defects are more common in pregnancies of women who get pregnant too soon after bariatric surgery.

It is possible to carry a healthy pregnancy to term, but the deck will be stacked against you and you need to consult your team for help.

Good luck and best wishes.

10 weeks pregnant or 10 weeks post sleeve and just pregnant. Either way you will be fine. Some women get so sick they eat very little through their pregnancy. The sickness can pass. Your team will assist with Vitamins - keep up your fluids. Congratulations

I’m almost 10 months post op and my doctors are fine with me getting pregnant as I’ve hit goal weight and plateau, they are fully involved so I don’t really need the lecture about waiting the 18 months. I was told to wait a year, unfortunately things happen and this happened and I’m dealing with it best I can. I was just wondering if other women had any tips or experience form being pregnant after the sleeve
