15 weeks pregnant sleeve In 2017



Recommended Posts

This will be my second baby found out yesterday another boy so excited. I can't help but feel anxious about this pregnancy as I have only gained 5 pounds so far. I know that is good but I am not showing at all. My doctor doesn't seem to think it's an issue. Any other mamas go through this?

I actually lost weight in both of my pregnancies (one being prior to my surgery) and this last one I lost at first and only gained 8 lbs total for the entire pregnancy which fluctuated up and down. The baby was 7lbs 6oz at birth..... and after I had him I lost over 25 lbs within a few weeks. I think it really depends on your weight going in on how much you will actually gain or lose (if any). If you are overweight then you aren't supposed to gain much and the more overweight you are, the less you are supposed to gain if that makes sense. I was sick the entire way through but the Drs were not concerned as I was still overweight and the baby was absolutely fine. Just stay hydrated is what they will most likely tell you and if need be then get on some nausea meds to help keep some kind of food down. However, I wouldn't worry about it as long as the baby is healthy at ultrasounds and is kicking, I think you'll be just fine.

      Ok I had surgery on Jan 27 2020 so I am 3 weeks out and have lost 32 lbs  I wish I had this done sooner. Now just trying to figure out different things to eat so I am not eating the same thing over and over. I did order some stuff today from the Bariatric Store and that stuff should be here in time for my next phase. I have a goal of 50 lbs by the first of June hope that is attainable. Good luck to every one on this journey

      So went to my surgeon today for one month follow-up. Last time I was there he wanted me to put on 4kgs but oops I’ve lost another 2kgs. Told him it was intended, was trying to maintain, upped my food intake, was stable for almost 3 weeks but last weekend broke it.
      Mum turned 80. Drinks at neighbours, a couple of crackers & dip, home late, no dinner. Out all morning, followed by celebratory family lunch, home late, no dinner. Whole dietary routine out the window. Did have a protein bar & tuna frittata muffin in between but didn’t eat much at all those two days.
      What dumbfounded me was he was ok with it. I told him I didn’t want to put on his 4kg because of the weight gain many experience in the 12+months in maintenance. He agreed with me. What the??? Invasion of the body snatchers??? Totally opposite position from last month. 
      He was also ok with my stopping my multivitamins. Agreed with my thinking that is better to feel ok & eat then be nauseated & not eat. He’ll just monitor my bloods to ensure no problems which is what they do anyway.
      Not complaining.

      Just came from my GPs office. He would want me upping to 1500kcals a day. Have no idea on how I'm gonna do this - a year ago it would been an issue to come _down_ to 1500 kcals 😂
