Hello everyone!

Sorry it has been awhile. Last week we had our 20 week ultrasound and it's a GIRL!! Kevin and I are really excited because we both wanted a girl so badly. Baby is weighing in at 11 ounces and is perfectly fine from what they can see. All my bloodwork has been good too. I am at about 173 pounds which is a solid 12 pound gain according to my doc and she says that is fine for halfway there.

Now a question for those of you out there with Lap Bands that have been pregnant before...

I am starting to notice some indigestion-y type feelings in my belly but not always up by my pouch. Is this some sort of modified heartburn or something? I haven't had feelings like this since before I was banded.

I put in a call to my WLS nurse to ask about this but wanted to get your take. I am VERY short waisted so I am really showing already (there is not much room for my organs to move around). Any ideas about this discomfort? I really notice it after eating. It almost feels like the big part of my stomach is just resting there in the way. UGH
