Pregnant with the lap band

Why is it that no one blogs about being banded and pregnant?
Or am I just missing something?
I’ve looked quite a bit, and I can see those that announced they were pregnant and then what they were having, but what about being pregnant after WLS? You know, the nitty gritty details we all love.

I sure wish someone had, because….

I’m pregnant and well, you know... I have a lapband.
I’m going to try and blog for the duration. So far it has been a crazy learning curve, a 15 pound learning curve.

Cheers to new territory.


  1. yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy..... the cat is out of the bag! :) <3 yippee

  2. I didn't blog about my pregnancy bc I was too scared to talk about it at all after having gone through 2 miscarriages. I hardly talked about it in real life until I was almost 7 months. I spent the majority of last year pregnant and delivered a healthy baby girl in December. I would be happy to tell you my experience with pregnancy and Lapband if you wanna hear it. Feel free to email me. Congrats!!!

  3. Congrats!!!!! Sorry I can't help you but I think I recall some blogger a while ago who blogged about being preggers with the band....I'll let you know when I remember....

  4. Congrats!!! I'm so excited for you!

    The gal who does my hair has had a band for 6 years and about 3 years ago she had a baby. But I totally know what you mean...seems like I hear of bloggers who "announce" they are pregnant and then disappear.

    There is this:

  5. Congrats! I was pregnant with the band and blogged about it! Would be happy to chat about it! I had surgery in 10/09 and delivered my little man in July 2011!

    Congrats again!!!

    1. I had no idea! I am so glad, I will look more into your blog! :)

  6. AAAH!!!! LORIIIIIIEEE!! I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOU GUYS!! (Hence all the caps and exclamation points... haha) Congrats!

  7. I never check blogs anymore, but just happened to this morning. I am beyond excited for you!!! How are you feeling? I have no advice to offer you as the lap band goes, but I know you will do great. Just enjoy and cherish being pregnant and having a new baby! Lucky little boy/girl to have you as their mommy!

  8. There was a Sarah that blogged while pregnant, but I don't remember her blog. I'm so happy for you!!

  9. Congratulations! I am excited for you! I don't have any words of wisdom about pregnancy and the band. What did your surgeon's office tell you?

  10. Yay! So glad you finally announced, I was getting antsy! lol

  11. Congratulations, Lorie! What great, happy news!!
