Hi everyone! I am 10.5 years post gastric bypass and I am finally pregnant! It's been a long journey. 2 years after WLS I found out I had thyroid cancer. Then we tried for a year and ovulation wasn't detected. We stopped trying and now 6 years later we are finally pregnant! Woo! I currently weigh 123, down from my high of 260! I also eat a fully plant-based diet and generally feel very healthy.

I'm excited, BUT I am incredibly nervous. My PCP checked all my Vitamin levels before we started trying and all looked great, except my B12 was high... I had some very short lasting and not heavy bleeding right around implantation, so I went last week for hcg level checks and it all looked great.

I had a great meeting with a bariatric dietician, so I feel good about the nutrition part. I get my ultrasound tomorrow, and then in two weeks I'll start going to an MFM.

In the meantime, I'm wondering if there is anything I should be asking or on the lookout for?

Thank you so much!

P.s. I also have pretty bad anxiety if you couldn't tell yell

That’s some of the best news you can get! Food-wise, you may have to be looser with restrictions and let your body tell you what it needs. Each of my pregnancies changed how I ate. Don’t be too strict on yourself and know your body is telling you what it needs to nourish your baby.
