Pregnancy after gastric bypass



Recommended Posts

February 5th I found out I am indeed pregnant. I’m close enough to what’s recommended (march27,2019 is my surgery date) so I don’t want any lectures. This is for the ladies who have successfully gotten pregnant after wls did you have healthy and successful pregnancies? Did you have any complications?

Hi! I got pregnant 4 months post op. Had my baby and pregnancy was a breeze. My restriction faded during pregnancy so I was able to eat more but I still dealt with dumping on certain items. Also I didnt gain any weight actually lost 27lbs. I was not considered high risk at all. I also refused for glucose drink and opted in for the finger sticks 4 times a day.

Thank you for the response💜 I’ve seen a lot of people get pregnant after surgery but then they stop updates so I didn’t know if everything was okay during their pregnancies. I was just thinking about what I’m supposed to do when it comes to the drink in the future 😅 the ginger sticks are the at home sugar level testers correct? Or is that something the doctors do? I have a tester is why I ask.

      I am now 10 days post op and I am down 16lbs. I had an allergic reaction to the glue my doctor used so I am still sore and trying to keep moving to not get stiff.

      Hello,  I am brand new on here. 
      The doctor qualified me yesterday for the surgery, so now I have to take 12 weeks of education classes and then he said they will schedule the surgery 4-6 weeks after I complete the classes. 
      I am excited to start this new journey.

      Am at the half-way mark of the six month pre-op program.  So excited!  Got clearance from psychologist this morning, so I scheduled my surgery consult for early March.  It is becoming more real now.  Have lost 18 pounds so far, since I began this journey on 12/18/19.

      So months ago, the Kid thought it would be funny to create an account on here and troll me with it.  Figured out it was her a few days later, and had a laugh about it.  She's been trolling me on it ever since.
      This morning I went on to post something and realized after the fact that I posted using her account as she was on my laptop last night 🙄
      Trolling over, Kid.
