Any women in here 40+ planning to have children? I'm praying for my miracle baby, lost my 1st one had a Etopic pregnancy in 2001. After I have the surgery in January, how quick did you get pregnant? I heard you get very fertile. Should I start taking folic acid after?

I’m sorry for your loss. I’ve heard that you do become very fertile but most surgeons warn against getting pregnant in the first year. I’d definitely talk to your surgeon about it. Best of luck to you!

Ditto the previous poster - my surgeon and OBGYN both said two years before trying because of the risk of malnutrition to you and the baby, and potential developmental issues. I would consult both of those people.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
