Smile pregnancy worries ?

Hi there , just wondering if anyone out there can give me some positive feedback (tired of hearing the negative ) im currently 13 weeks pregnant , and i weigh 275lbs ,although i carry my weight well (im 5'7 )obviously i am seriously overweight . At all my checks and appointments , neither the midwife or the doc has told me that there will be a problem with my pregnancy ,my bloodpressure is fine ,and all other tests came back normal , and they have considered me low risk actually , but i cant help feeling a little worried , i would hate anything to happen because of my weight ! Also , everthing i read on the internet states that heavy women have more risks during pregnancy , its all very negative stuff ive read , is what im trying to say !!! I know i should be happy with what my docs told me and that everythin looks good so far , but i would just LOVE to hear a happy story from someone like me , who has went on to have a happy healthy pregnancy with no problems , first hand you know ? So Thanx in advance ...just want to enjoy this xxxxxxxxxxx

Re: pregnancy worries ?

Hello.I am 5'8" and 250.I had a daughter almost 9 years ago with no problems.I watched what I ate VERY close.I only gained about 13 pounds with the pregnancy.I do not think you will have probs if you watch your intake and excercise,exercise,exercise.There are alot of low impact exercises you can do as well as walking.This will help you keep your weight down and help with the delivery.Just be careful and don't give into those cravings.There are so many yummy low fat/calorie things these days.Go to the weight watchers website and you can access so many great receipes and ideas.Good luck to you and your little one.

Re: pregnancy worries ?

Congratulations! Don't let your weight scare you. I started my pregnancy at 283. Did develop gestational diabetes, which I had to manage with insulin, but that might have happened if I were at a "normal" weight. I gained only 18lbs during the pregnancy. My healthy, beautiful daughter was born at 8lbs 10oz. She's turning 5 next week!
