Given what I know of you and your behavior from OH, I would not trust you to watch a child.

I am the master of my own regain.

Eighty is probably the ideal time to have a child .. and im sure future generations will be having kids then.

But now, in my stage of life having kids requires sacrifice . That's a very hard choice considering all the opportunities I lost.

You need to get your own head on straight before you even CONSIDER raising a child.

First of all, congrats on your pregnancy!! I had my RNY surgery in Nov 2001. I got pregnant very easily prior, but to no avail, none came to fruition. After my surgery, was successful in maintaining my pregnancy, but just like you, from finding out to the actual 1st appt, I was unable to eat my normal meals and couldn't keep a thing down either. My doctor had experience with previous weight loss patients, and said that although I may not be able to, try to eat meals focusing on the protein and veges first. But if I wasn't able to do that, he asked that I go back on my protein shakes, even if I had to water them down more and sip all day long to ingest at the minimum 60g of protein.

I followed his advice, also put in a call to my surgeon who agreed, and although I unhealthily gained only 14lbs during the whole pregnancy, I now have a beautiful and intelligent 13 year old.

My body taught me a lot when I was pregnant...if my baby and body wanted it, then try it, even milk I couldn't do and still can't to this day, I would chug straight Vitamin D whole Milk from the jug, and never got sick, after I had him, that lasted 2 days, and headed back to lactose free land...

Hang in there, the outcome is well worth it, just don't expect to not get sick, but keep moving forward as much as you can on protein, even if you throw up, some will get to where it needs to go!!!

Good luck!

I just found out I'm pregnant... My morning sickness comes and goes... sometimes all i can stomach is a few crackers. I haven't been able to call my center but I will monday morning. How do you guys stay on track with food aversions and nausea???

I think this only applies to taking birth control orally - due to malabsorption.

I briefly switched from pill to patch (but it said not effective if you are over 198lbs, so I switched to IUD - now I am using the patch because I am 175 and hated my IUD)

5'0 - SW - 235.5LBS | Lap Band - August 2015| Revision Band to RNY Surgery - May 16, 2017| Opti-fast - 9lbs |M1 - 17.2lbs| M2 - 7lbs| M3 - 8.3lbs | M4-6.2lbs | M5 - 3.9LBS | M6- 5.9LBS | M7- 3.8lbs | M8 - 3.8lbs | M9- 3.5lbs |

I've definitely struggled with the regain, but it's 100% my own fault. I was on-track for four months after surgery and lost almost 10lb. After that, I semi-consciously "gave up" and gained back all of the baby weight plus some.

Most people experience some regain at year 2 or 3, mine just happened to coincide with the post-partum issues, which really sucked.

On the plus side, I had a complication-free pregnancy, my son is perfectly healthy, and even though I've gained a bit I can still chase him around much more easily than I could before surgery!

I am the master of my own regain.
