1st pregnancy after gastric bypass.. help!



Recommended Posts

So I’ve had mini gastric bypass 2 years ago and I’m finally pregnant. I switched from taking bariatric Multivitamins to prenatal Vitamins. I need to know if that’s ok and covers all my nutrients and minerals needs? In addition to prenatal vitamins I’m also taking 1200 mg of calcium citrate, 20mg Chelated Zinc, 5mg Folic Acid and once in a week 10,000 IU Vitamin D, I would also need to know when should I have my first prenatal visit to the Obgyn? Mine is scheduled at week 6, what do I expect of it other than ultrasound and what what type of Vitamin testing should be preformed? Anything else that I need to know.. I am a bit worried and excited

I would take them all with you to the dr. You may be doubling up on the folic acid since it would likely be in your prenatal too. They ought to be able to look at the levels in your multi and let you know if there is anything missing or that should be avoided for a safe pregnancy. They may not do an ultrasound if you are only 6 weeks. I feel like with both of my boys we couldn't find a heartbeat until at least 7 weeks on ultrasound (they are too small, not because there is anything wrong!). Congratulations!!
