1000-lb Sisters: Amy Slaton’s Trip to the ER Started with #2 Problems
The TLC celebrity Amy Slaton talks about how she was at the doctor’s office for more than three hours. And Amy says that she finally got the chance to poop after being clogged up for a while. But in addition to getting some relief for her colon, she also got an unexpected revelation.
On the first season of 1000-lb Sisters, Amy Slaton and her sister Tammy Slaton decided to lose weight together. Both of these sisters are dangerously overweight. And they both had their own reasons why they want to shed pounds.
Amy’s weight was over 400 pounds at the start of the 1000-lb Sisters. But after she lost enough to qualify for weight-loss surgery, she went under the knife. Post-operation, she’s down more than 100 pounds.
But, Amy Slaton’s not out of the woods yet. Part of the agreement Amy had with her doctor was that she wasn’t supposed to get pregnant for two years after her operation. Then four months post-op, she made a shocking announcement after going to the doc for her clogged pipes.
Shocking Update for Newlywed Couple
The 1000-lb Sisters celebrity gets into the car with her husband, Michael Halterman, after leaving the doctor’s office. Once in the vehicle, Amy hands him a piece of paper. And he asks what the experts said.
After giving him a few seconds to look over the paper, Amy Slaton tells him that she’s pregnant with his child. He asks her if she’s serious. Amy tells him that she told the physicians to check again. So, they ran the pregnancy test four times.
Michael laughs and begins to tear up on 1000-lb Sisters. He asks her again if she’s serious. She tells him that she is. Michael gives a shout of joy and they kiss to celebrate. That’s a big development for Amy when she only came to the doctor to find out why she couldn’t poo.
1000-lb Sisters: Amy Slaton Talks About How She Learned She’s Pregnant
1000-lb Sisters personality Amy Slaton talks about how the specialist needed to take an X-ray of her stomach. This is to identify how “clogged up” she is with unpassed poopies. But, for the resident to give her an x-ray, she needs to see if she’s pregnant.
After taking the pregnancy test, the consultant says that they can’t do the x-ray. This is because Amy from 1000-lb Sisters is expecting. Her response to this message is “what?” She tells the doc that she thinks he has the wrong person. After hearing the big baby announcement, Amy’s husband says that she should go check the results again.
Then, Amy calls her sister Tammy Slaton on 1000-lb Sisters. The pregnancy bombshell left Tammy in disbelief. Amy says that she’s as serious “as a heart attack” about this new. But she also admitted she thought the doc was lying to her. Then, sister Tammy said she wishes this was a lie. Amy’s baby reveal left Tammy uncertain what to say since her sister’s not supposed to get pregnant so soon after surgery.
So, all Tammy says is “wow”. Of course, Tammy wants her sister to have the child she wants, but she knows this is too soon. Amy Slaton admits she’s scared, because of how close she got pregnant after getting her surgery. Watch this play out on TLC starting with a missed bowel movement.
