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 just had a teaspoon of hummus with a teaspoon of avocado topped with a teaspoon of greek yogurt and it. was. GLORIOUS. I'm four days out and my surgeon gave me the greenlight to work in small amounts of pureed food.

      Kind of nervous, as expected. One month out from surgery!

      😫 Hi, I’m new to bariatricpal! I am 8 days post op VSG. I am struggling very badly. I’ve been so emotional because I feel like I’m doing wrong. I’m afraid I’ll eat or drink to fast or eat the wrong thing. I’ve been on Pinterest and YouTube constantly for help. I have followed all of my surgeons and dieticians instructions. I just don’t know if my body is getting enough. Today, I am weak, sore, and just exhausted.

        It passes!! Everyone goes though it! It is a short term emotion! I'm almost five years post op! You made the right decision! Don't focus on the change right now. Try to entertain your mind. What your feeling only last about a week. It's related to your body adjusting and you mind adjusting. You got this!!

        I agree with Tara it's hard right now but it gets better do t forget your hormones will be all over the place you may even feel depressed. Be kind to yourself reach out and talk to people how you are feeling .
