I'm currently 5 weeks pregnant and 6 weeks post op I'm worried my baby will have neural tubing defects, has anyone who got pregnant early and high risk had a baby with neural tubing defects? Is there a way to treat it or prevent it ? I'm wanting my baby too grow up living a normal life and happy I'm so worried I might have to put my baby up for adoption

I would see a doctor asap. I’m sure there are things you can do to reduce the risks but the sooner the better. If you have a hard time getting in, see if your surgeons office can help.

Congratulations! Definitely see your doctor & then your surgeon. Start adding folic acid to your Vitamin regime now - get supplements from your pharmacy.

Also, talk to your dietician about what you can add to your post surgical diet to ensure you’re getting in a variety of nutrients. You may be surprised how few extra calories you’ll need - you’re not eating for two adults but for yourself & a tiny growing baby.

      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 .
