Hi everyone! I'm new to this board, but not to OH. I'm 18 months out from RNY and just got a BFP this past Friday, so naturally I have a millions questions! LOL It's still very early, so I'm trying not to get too excited, but hubby and I tried for 2 years before surgery without luck, so I am super excited. I have calls in to my OB/GYN and my dietician, but I hope you ladies don't mind a bunch of questions before I get through to them! 

My first questions is vitamins. I'm currently taking 2 multis, calcium citrate, B12, folic acid, and iron, but I'm still taking the normal post-op dosages. Do I need to up the dosage of any of my vitamins? I can eat plenty, so I'm not too concerned about being able to eat enough. Right now I just want to be sure I'm getting enough vitamins since I haven't heard back from the dietician yet. 

Thank you and I look forward to "meeting" you all!

Congrats and let me say that I was taking everything and only had to up my calcium and my multi vit. I took 2 gummy flintstones 2x's a day. The other ones would make me sick and they seemed to work fine though. Make sure your OB knows a lot about your surgery, there are so many that do not.

 Welcome and congratulations!!!  Sounds like you're pretty much on track for everything!  My surgeon only told me to add a folic acid supplement (800mcg/day) to all of my normal post-op vits.  Good luck to you and see you around!

Hi, welcome to the board and congrats on your pregnancy!  The vitamins you are taking now sound good for the moment, but you might need to add folic acid.  I would suggest having all your vitamin levels checked and go from there!  Again, congrats!
