Gastric Bypass & Pregnancy
I had gastric bypass surgery 22 months ago...and now am ready to get pregnant with my third child. My previous two children were born way before I had the surgery, when I was very much overweight but luckily had no complications with either of them. So I have lost 130-134 pounds (it fluctuates) since surgery and managed to stay this way. I'm looking for advice or experience from anyone who has been pregnant after this surgery. I would really like to know how the weight gain during the pregnancy affects the body, does it stick around after the baby is born or should I go back to my normal size? After losing all this weight the thought of gaining weight petrifies me. I could stand to gain a few pounds and still look healthy but I'd rather stay right where I'm at! Any advice or input would be appreciated, thanks!
