  1. Hello, I am 5 years out from gastric. I have had 2 babies since and 3 kids total. I want to stay on protein shakes with this pregnancy but I am concerned. Anyone have a successful pregnancy while drinking them. I assume it is common post bypass I need to drink them now as it is harder to maintain my weight loss and get me protein in this far out without causing hunger, I have been doing the BACK on Track diet when I got pregnant. Anyway, let me hear the success stories.
  2. I am 3 years post op and on day 4 of the pouch test. I am very happy with the results. My carb cravings have gone away. My weight has plateaued due to 2 babies and nursing but i am weaning now and want to lose about 30 more pounds.
  3. I had surgery Sept 2012. Had baby 1 April 2014 and baby 2 Sept 2015. Great healthy pregnancies. I needed clomid to jump start ovulation with one but 2 was a bonus. Lol

    I am so excited that gastric bypass allowed me to finally get pregnant with my second child after 10 years of trying! I just wanted to let anyone that might have found themselves pregnant how it has been for me so far. I got pregnant 10 months post op. I have been able to keep my weight in check, I lost 11 pounds in the first trimester from morning sickness. As I am about to head in to my third, I have gained only 5 pounds so I am still 6 under where I started. lol I am able to stay active and I feel great. I did have to go back on insulin for my pregnancy but my A1c is 5. Which is amazing. I can not believe how great it is to be having another baby!
  5. My tastes changed alot. When it comes to meat I lost my love of beef.
  6. I just cant eat bread. I don't want empty calories any more since i get to eat so little. Funny, when I remember how much I loved it and how present it is in my family members diets.
  7. Congratulations! You look great!
  8. Keep us informed as to what it turns out to be.
  9. I still can't do milk. After surgery everything is weird and your emotions are raw. You will find a lot of support here.
  10. Good luck! I like structure too. It takes the guess work out.
  11. I feel every calorie I eat. My body has no issues absorbing. lol
  12. 40 is not that old. LOL I think be in the best possible health and follow all you doctors recommendations. That being said. Mine only had me wait a year. I only made it 10 months but I am capable of gaining the weight I need.
