Hey all! I stacked on a tonne of weight in my last pregnancy, I think almost 40 or 50 kilograms. I went from around 70 to 120kg. My weight has yo-yo'ed since then; but I've stayed a fairly steady 100kg.
I just found out I am pregnant again and am so worried that I am too fat to have another baby healthily? I really wanted for my health and weight to be in check before I tried again but too late! Now, my BMI says I am 30 - which is just in the obsese region (29 being overweight).
I guess I just need some peace of mind that it's not as big a drama as I'm making out. It's still a week and a half til I see a doctor. Have any lovely ladies here been pregnant and delivered healthy bubs whilst being overweight/ or what they call obese. God, I don't even *look* obese, I just look chubby!
I'm also worried about high blood pressure (I've had high blood pressure since the birth of my boy 2.5 years ago) - it only sits at about 82/5 - 145/8. So it's just verging into bad. I presume the doc will be able to manage it with medication if it's an issue? Does anyone know how often high blood pressure is linked directly to developing pre-eclampsia?
Yep. I'm definitely going through my first trimester stress period! Man!
