A WOMAN had a gastric bypass op while she was five months pregnant – ­without her or doctors realising.

In a medical first, Debbie Knight gave birth to a healthy boy just months after undergoing the weight-loss ­surgery.

And yesterday, as she ­cuddled baby Ronnie, Debbie revealed how she also shed an incredible EIGHT STONE while pregnant.

"I'm the luckiest woman alive," she says. "I have a healthy son and I've ­transformed the way I look. Doctors told me they have never come across a case like this. ­Ronnie's my little miracle."

Women who become ­pregnant after gastric bypass surgery need ­constant monitoring and care – but Debbie, 27, missed out on checks. She had the £7,500 ­operation last June after her weight had spiralled to 25 stone. Doctors warned the ­morbidly obese accounts clerk she'd be dead by 40 and she had no chance of ­having children with her ­husband Sean, 38, unless she faced up to her ­problems.

"It was the wake-up call I ­needed," admits Debbie, from Guernsey. The keyhole surgery – in which a "pouch" was inserted to make her stomach smaller – took two hours. Within a fortnight she had shed a stone and the weight continued to fall off.

Then, last November, Debbie ­started to suffer from sickness, so took a pregnancy test. "I couldn't believe my eyes when it showed I was ­expecting," she says. Debbie assumed she was in the early stages of ­pregnancy. But days later she was rushed into hospital for a caesarean section and Ronnie was delivered weighing a healthy 7lb 13oz.

Debbie realised she had been five monthspregnant at the time of her operation. By the time she left ­hospital her weight had dropped by a massive eight stone to 17 stone. Since then she has lost a further two stone.

"We feel so lucky," Debbie says.
