Four months into her pregnancy, Amy Slaton's family is worried that her eating habits could get out of control.

Slaton's pregnancy was already an issue — after undergoing bariatric weight loss surgery last year, she was not supposed to get pregnant for at least two years out of concern that she could regain the weight or harm her body. But just four months later the 1000-Lb. Sisters star found out that she was expecting, to her surprise.   

And so far, her surgeon's concerns are coming true. In an exclusive clip from Monday's episode of the TLC show, Amy's sister and costar Tammy, along with their brother Chris, confront her about her eating habits since getting pregnant.

"Amy, you done worked this hard to get the surgery. We need to get you back to where you need to be on your diet," Chris, 41, tells her.

"Cause you know you ain't been eating right, because of the baby," Tammy says, before telling her brother that Amy "wants to use [the baby] as a crutch."

Tammy and Chris point out to Amy that she's repeatedly said that she couldn't do certain activities because of the baby, or allowed herself to overeat.

"How many times have you said, 'Oh, I'm gonna eat this because the baby wants it?' " Chris asks Amy.

Amy, crying, tries to defend herself.

"All I said was that I do have cravings because of the baby," she says. "I wanna enjoy my baby, I wanna be enjoying my pregnancy, okay? I'm sorry."

"Y'all just don't know how much I wanted this baby and I love it," Amy adds. "The whole point of me getting surgery was so that I could have me a baby."

Chris says that they just want her to "get back on track," and Tammy points out that she needs to "be around long to take care of that baby."

"Amy gets upset because she feels like we're attacking her, but we we're really not, we're just trying to get her to open her eyes and see that the things she's doing isn't the right choices," Tammy says in a separate interview. "And she could reverse the surgery."
