The search feature on here totally sucks. But, if you go to the Pregnancy forum, and search back into the post counts in the 200-400s, you can find a few VSG pregnancies and healthy baby stories in there. I tried searching for the few that I've read on there, but to no avail, I can't find them. I know they are there. If I run across any other them, I'll post them here for you.
For me, I refused to get pregnant weighing 270lbs. I had the band first to avoid malabsorption, then revised to the sleeve due to band complications. I'm a year out, and have been cleared to TTC. I know it's recommended by most surgeons to wait longer, but there are specific reasons why we are trying now. It's not ideal to get pregnant early out, but many WLS patients accidentally get pregnant and deliver healthy, thriving babies.
My guidelines are to take my vitamins religiously, eat a balanced, healthy, nutrient-filled diet daily, and to have my labs monitored closely. I am no longer in the losing stage so ketosis is not a concern. The baby will take what it needs from what I eat, and what I have stored. I'll need to ensure that I keep my body healthy during the pregnancy.
