    Default How was YOUR pregnancy after the sleeve? Early labor?

    Hello everyone!
    I am 34 weeks pregnant and starting to worry about going into early labor!
    The last month has been super hard for me to eat, drink and rest as much as I should and I have read a few places the chances of going into labor before 37 weeks is more likely in women who have had a weight loss surgery.
    So, who's been pregnant after the sleeve and what was your pregnancy like?

    Can I ask you a few questions, please? How old are you? Is this your first pregnancy? Do you have PCOS? Did you have trouble getting pregnant before surgery?

    In this situation is important to consult your doctor. It's safe to get pregnant after bariatric surgery after your weight stabilizes. You need a check-up and full monitoring till you give birth. I was not in this situation but my cousin was. She had surgery 1 year before she got pregnant. Pregnancy and weight loss surgery, both provoke stress to the organism and unexpected changes. This is why your obstetrician needs to know every detail especially now in the end. My cousin consulted a very good OB/GYN Specialist which helped her bring her healthy little son.

    Hello ��

    I had a baby 8 months ago and I am post op 7 years from gastric sleeve . I had to be induced I went past 40 weeks . My only issue I had was constant nausea and low blood sugar but otherwise had a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby . Breastfeeding is another story but everything else has been great!

    I realized over time I can’t read into others and what I read on google . Go by how you feel , if you feel good and you are eating and drinking like you need too for that little baby and getting enough rest I wouldn’t worry . If your not prioritizing you and your baby’s needs then do so you and that baby are important . Best of luck to you !!

    Hello @sonogirl,

    I am scheduled for my bariatric surgery next week, but I do not have children yet - So your post is very useful to me.
    May i ask how old were you when you got the surgery and if you feel you had any health issues in the past 10 years due to the sleeve surgery?
    Appreciate your inputs.

    Thanks.
