My best friend weighed over 225lbs (possibly over 250) when she got pregnant with her second child. She had a perfectly healthy pregnancy, and actually lost a little weight in the first trimester because of eating healthier!
I know that's anecdata, but large pregnancies don't have to be unhealthy ones.
So, I'm irritated with my doctor right now. She set back my ttc by a month.
We have to get me off the medications I'm on now before we even think of taking out the IUD. One of the meds is a teratogen, and the others are just bad for fetuses, including a strong narcotic. So the plan is tapering them off slowly over the course of several months, but this month she wrote my prescription for the same dose as last month (it's time-release, so I can't cut it up). DH picked it up and filled it, so I didn't notice until after it was filled, which was too late!
Sigh. I want a baby NOW, darnit!!! And this also means we have to wait til June. Even though we'll probably be ready in March, we have so many December birthdays in our family, and December birthdays suck, I told dh that the womb is closed March through May, so as not to risk another December baby! Now, if we start ttc in June 2009, and we haved conceived by March 2010, I think I'll feel differently. But if conceiving is easy, no more december babies!!!
