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! 😃
