Re: Does my weight have anything to do with it?
Im 5'10, normally about 110 lbs. Ive had no trouble conceiving, although Ive fielded tons of comments like "you're too skinny to have a healthy baby". Well, my last child was born weighing 8 lbs, 4 oz and was in perfect health. Ive also never had any trouble conceiving. Its a myth that mainly more voluptous women conceive easily and have healthy babies. I was advised to gain a little extra weight during my pregnancy. And trust me, I did! What you may have to look forward to eventually, is being able to rapidly lose the pregnancy weight, due to genetics and a high metabolism. I left the hospital after having my daughter in my regular old non-maternity clothes. Good luck! I was given a hard time when I was a kid and even a teenager for being too thin. I was called anorexic, skeleton, ethiopian--I actually wished I could gain weight so I could be prettier. Finally, Im comfortable with it.
