3 months post OP and 5 weeks pregnant



Recommended Posts

Like my title says; I'm 3 months post OP and I'm almost 6 weeks pregnant. Has anyone ever find themselves or know someone who's been in this situation? Was the pregnancy successful? My surgeon said while they recommend waiting 12 to 18 months post OP before getting pregnant, it's not impossible to do. I wanna know what to look forward to..... thanks in advance guys!

Congratulations!! I have not experienced this before but I know MANY women who have been pregnant and not gained any weight, some that were overweight even loss. I would definitely talk to your nutritionist and your dietitian as you want to ensure that you are getting what you need for a healthy pregnancy. I would think that with a healthy, balanced diet, proper Vitamins and exercise that you can have a healthy, successful pregnancy with little to no weight gain. Please keep up posted. Again, CONGRATULATIONS!!

Couldn't you hold back and take contraception so that your surgery hasn't been for nothing...

This question is not helpful ...

Congrats! Just work closely with your OB and your bariatric surgeon and RD and you will do beautifully and have a bouncing healthy baby too! :)

And I too know many who got pg before the magic 1year mark and had healthy pregnancies and gorgeous babies. I also know normies who were mo and delivered healthy babies and lost weight through the pg. :) So cheers. Just don't lose focus, it's more important now that you stay sharp and follow your rules given to you by your team!

This was incredibly insensitive, rude, and uncalled for. Stop being a d**k

Congrats! I have nothing really to add (I don't have this experience or know anyone in this situation) but I wanted to wish you the best :)

Congratulations on your pregnancy and as FluffyChix said just work closely with your medical team.

Please ignore all of the rude and insensitive comments.

Wishing you a safe and successful pregnancy!!
