Hi everyone, I posted some pregnancy related questions to the life_after_wls community a little while, back, I just figured I'd start out the action here by reposting that in the interest of an icebreaker and getting some more input.

I'm 14 months out and attempting to get pregnant. I'm also about ready to re-up on vitamins as my current stock is getting low so I thought it might be a good time to get some prenatals. Does anyone have any advice about what type of prenatals will be best for me? I know I've heard people mention that certain types of prenatals caused them some problem. Also, I assume that I'll need to continue taking extra B-12. Is there anything else that I'll need to take in addition to those?

Also, I'd really like to find an OB-Gyn who has experience with bariatric patients so that I don't just get that blank stare that I get from my PCP when I ask about things like what my goal weight should taking my bone denity and extra skin into account. She looked at me like I had two heads, pointed at the BMI chart and said that I should be 145. Ummmm. No. (I'm still 210 and still need to lose more, but there's no way in HELL that I need to lose 65 more pounds. I'm 5'6 and in a 14 already and have bones sticking out all over).

So, to sum up ... what vitamins (prenatal and other)?
How to find the right OB/Gyn?
