So I had the sleeve in January 2018 and I am 6 weeks pregnant. I have been feeling more hungry lately and I get more full than usual after I eat. Basically I either feel like I’m starving or like I ate too much literally all day long. And nauseated on top of that. Is this normal? I don’t feel like I’m eating larger portions so I don’t know why I’m constantly sick feeling.

Wouldn't your nausea be morning sickness and your hunger be pregnancy-related? Have you talked to your bariatric office for advice?

Yes I’m having morning sickness I know that but the super full part is different. I never had that with my son. My surgeon retired in March.

I had the same issue throughout my entire pregnancy. I'm not sure if it was just me because my first pregnancy (prior to my gastric sleeve), I was also sick throughout the whole pregnancy and not just "morning" sickness. HOWEVER, this was on a whole new level! I felt like I was full ALL DAY after only eating a small amount of food and like maybe it wasn't digesting. I was told even in people without gastric sleeve that this is completely normal and one of the most common complaints from pregnant women. While you are pregnant, your digestive system changes from the hormones. I was put on ranitidine as well as a nausea medication for pregnant women but honestly it didn't help much. I also tried Preggy Pops which didn't do anything either. The farther along I got, the less room I had for food but the good news is that it is only temporary! 😃

      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 😂
