I am going through the same thing. I am 39 yrs old, this is my third pregnancy not including 3 miscarriages. I am 11 1/2 weeks and look about as big as I did when I was about 6 months pregnant. I didn’t get real big or gain a lot of weight with my other two. This time around I am hungry all the time! I am scared that I am putting on to much weight keep telling myself that maybe that is what I need since I didn’t before and both my babes were born early due to complications. My son was only 2 weeks early but my daughter was 2 months and premature. Needless to say I am high risk and trying to do things different. I typically weight a steady 128 and worked out 2 to 4 times a week. Now I am tired all the time, have restrictions on my workouts and am left trying not to obsess about the weight gain. I am glad to hear I am not completely alone!
You did not have you ovaries removed! Big difference because you still have your hormones doing all the work for you. I only had one ovary remove in 2010 and I was still able to loose weight but still had no waist. Then in Sept 2016 they removed my last ovary. Since then, I have gained 20 Lb. doing nothing different except I have No ovary. If you have everything removed then you have no ovaries producing hormones. Which helps you with depression and weight, joint pain, fatigue, mental fog , and all the other stuff that comes with it that your doctor forgot to tell you. I’m 46, and still very active.
Gastric Bypass is a powerful tool that can help you achieve near ideal body weight BUT in order to achieve that goal one must eat well. A patient that gains weight over time after surgery is related to the same nurtionally bad habits that originally led to significant weight gain. Therefore it is important in the inmediate post -operative period to develop a good game plan and establish healthy eating habits that will carry you for the rest of your life. It is uncommon for weight gain to be realted to anatomic reason (ie surgery), although one should consult with your bariatric surgeon.
