So I know it matters. And I know that the "healthier" I am, the better my chances are for a (someday) VBAC. I'm not pg now, but working towards getting everything lined up so that I'm ready when the time comes.
So I'm 5'6'', 153 lbs. on an average day. That makes my BMI 24.7, which is or is bordering on "overweight." I know that overweight people can be healthy and normal-weight people can be unhealthy, but how much is it going to impact my VBAC chances in the future?
I know I can lose 5-8 lbs., but realistically I'm not sure that I can get back down to the 140 that I was pre-DD. How important is it?
