Obesity & Pregnancy

Hi I am Valerie and I just found out that I am pregnant for number 3, my question is, has anyone here experienced pregnancy while being overweight?Since I have been married (8yrs) I have gained abot 80 lbs, when I was pregnant for our last child I am only about 20lbs more than I was then, and only gained 16 lbs fo her. I did have gestational diabetes, which runs rampant in my family, but is it possible to have a normal healthy pregnany when overweight?

Re: Obesity & Pregnancy

It is possible. I am 35, and my son is almost 1, and I was overweight when I got pregnant with him and I am the same size now with this pregnancy. Thankfully I only gained 17 lbs with him and lost it within 2 wks of his birth. I failed the first glucose test and had to take the 3 hour test, but passed it. I never had problems w/ my blood pressure or anything. It will just depend on how you do! I would think if you had gestational diabetes before that you would have a high chance of having it again. But it is possible to have a very healthy pregnancy and be overweight. Good luck to you.
