The good news is that in preparation for your surgery, you were tested and are likely in a good place with your iron and vitamins! The critical nutrients will be available for your baby if you are up on vitamins and getting enough protein. I'm sure your OB will be very worried about your nutrition but try to remember that your body will survive this. Good luck, and keep us updated!

Women have a weight threshold where ovulation stops. For some it's fairly low others get pregnant weighting 300+ pounds. Many overweight woman continue to have periods and don't realize they are not ovulating unless they want to get pregnant and seek medical care.

In many cases it only takes a 10% weight loss to trigger ovulation. Unfortunately your ovulate before you get your period... I don't understand why so many bariatric surgeon don't cover this pre op.

The baby doesn't need much at this point but you do. Make sure your multiple vitamins contain folic acid and take your calcium supplement as directed. As others have said call your primary or GYN and get an ASAP appointment. Meanwhile try not to worry.
