I am so excited right now! My new ob/gyn was AMAZING! He was super flamboyant and very animated and sincere. I immediately felt at ease with him, such a relief! I told him about my band, and my concern for a high risk pregnancy. He said he has had many band patients, and never had any issues. He said that he'd like to see me lose another 50lbs or so before trying to conceive, which shouldn't be an issue since we don't plan on trying for a few years. He also mentioned that a lot of times with overweight patients he tends to have to do c-sections because of the fat distribution?? Not sure what that meant, but I know I will not be an overweight pregnant woman when the time is right, so I am happy! We also talked about all of my spotting issues, and he doesn't think it is due to the nuva ring, he said um hello you just lost 50lbs...your body is in shock and adjusting to the changes...makes sense. He also said if it doesn't clear up within 2-3 months to go back and they will do a little more investigating on the issue. I feel so relieved and confident.
Thank you so much for all your comments yesterday, it helped to know that everyone else was told pregnancy shouldn't be an issue!!
