this particular situation doesn't apply to me, but I've read that a lot of surgeons want you to wait a year before getting pregnant. And most women become much more fertile after surgery - so you have to really watch it!

My surgeon said wait at least a year till weight stabilises, due to not eating enough to sustain a healthy pregnancy.

It has been known for people to get pregnant after just 6 months according to my dietitian.

I got pregnant 18 months after RNY. All was fine and healthy. Being pregnant is difficult for lots of reasons. I actually did lose a few pounds during the first trimester because of morning sickness and food aversions. But my OBGYN just monitored me closely. The best part was within 48 hours of having him, people were telling me they couldn’t believe I had just had a baby! Pick healthy food whenever possible and double your Vitamins.

I got pregnant 11months post op. We will be 26 weeks on Friday. I lost 16lbs in the beginning because of nausea and I’m just now 3lbs over what I was when I first got pregnant. If I’m being honest we decided to start trying in November and got pregnant in January because my weight stabilized and due to our past we thought it would take longer even tho they say your fertility goes up after surgery (had five miscarriages and was told there was little to no chance of conceiving naturally even with weight loss) so far everything is perfect he was a little smaller in the beginning I assume because of morning sickness but quickly passed what he’s supposed to be measuring at once I started eating again. @23 weeks his arms and legs were measuring at 26weeks and his estimated weight is a little higher than most at 23 weeks since he’s measuring longer. I do go to a high risk dr along with my obgyn because of the surgery and because I previously had high blood pressure and diabetes because they say even if they went away you’re at higher risk(than those who haven’t had either) for developing it during pregnancy. But I get to see him monthly which is the one positive of having to go to the high risk dr.

      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 .

      I know BMI is not the best indication of things in certain situations but I'm happy to share I'm out of the obesity class III category. I'm in class II now. Just 47 more lbs until I'm officially "overweight". Haven't been just "overweight" since I was a kid. "laughs"
