Anyone pregnant that had Gastric Bypass?

I had it in Aug of 08. Im now 13 weeks pregnant. I was told by a friend i need more protein then what i normally eat..Is this true? My doc has never mentioned that. im on a pretty potent prenatal, So I figured i was getting all that I needed. I get nervous about every cramp and random pain i get. I know its normal cause im growing but I just wanna make sure everythings okay.

  • I haven't had it, but my cousin has. She had two very normal, healthy pregnancies. I think she got pregnant about 6 mos to a year after her surgery. She always eats so little, so I assume she was fine with her protein intake. She very rarely eats carbs anyway.
