    Toni, Can you tell me a little more about pregnancy with a gastric band. I had mine fitted a little over a year ago and have seen great results. I was going to have another fill in the next few weeks prior to finding out I was pregnant as I still feel that the resistance is not enough (as had all saline removed before xmas due to a irritation). I won’t get a fill now but want to know what I should say when having my scan etc as will they know, as this is so specialist I don’t want things to be delayed should other medical people not know the correct procedure!!! I also would like some advice on when the latter stages of pregnancy come and there isn’t much space for baby to move, is the port hole going to cause me or the baby any pain or is is likely to stick out? It’s just my family don’t know that I had it done and want to keep it that way. Would really appreciate some advice as a little scared. Thanks.
