    Default Overweight and Pregnant #4

    Hi, I have to say this caught my eye and I haven't actually read this whole thread, just wanted to add-
    I did have preeclampsia during my first pregnancy, it was absolutely terrible, I was at a healthy weight at that time.
    therefore was very concerned for my second pregnancy as I was 30kgs heavier, my ob actually told me that the preeclampsia was most probably due to the fact I was at a high risk age at the time, that it usually occurs in younger (I was early 20's) and 'older' (nearing 40) women and that I would probably be fine.......and I was, it was an easy pregnancy and an easy birth compared to my first very difficult and complicated pregnancy and birth.

    I'm not saying people should go out and put on an extra 30kgs before they get pregnant but rather that, over weight women are aware of the increased risks, people everywhere remind them regularly, but they're not the only ones in the high risk categories.
    It does not however have to be all doom and gloom it can work out to be fine.

    To those expecting look after yourselves and good luck!!

    Hi girls.
    Wondering if anyone had higher combined screening numbers because of their weight?

    Are you talking about NT results? I highly doubt they are linked.

    No. The only thing different for me was the glucose test-I had it earlier and that was only due to family history. Have you been told there'll be more due to weight?!

    Thanks for your replies girls.
    My obgyn has put the fear of God in me because I weigh 139kg which is not ideal i know, we were totally surprised we were pregnant
    My NT came back as still low risk for Down's syndrome but much higher risk than my previous pregnancy. I was told my baby is higher risk for everything because of my weight.

    I don't like to admit it but i was 169kgs when i got pregnant...by complete surprise...had been trying for 3.5 years....perfect pregnancy....no gd...did ott twice at 16 weeks and 28 weeks cause of my weight. I did have a c section but that's another issue...otherwise pregnancy wise was beautiful...my son was born 3.5kgs and not huge like the docs scared me into thinking.
