    Default Weight for healthy pregnancy?

    I am currently 100kg (after loosing 10kg already) just wondering what a healthy weight would be for me to be ready for pregnancy? I'm 5ft 7 if that helps. I just really don't want to be in a high risk pregnancy. Thanks.

    Default Weight for healthy pregnancy?

    Before I fell pregnant with my 3rd I went from 90kg to 69kg best decision was hard but I was lucky it only took 6 months but I gave it 110% :-) just wished I had lost more weight before falling pregnant with this one I already feel so heavy and frumpy at 24 weeks

    Wow good on you though! It's definitely not easy, especially when you are a comfort/stress eater like I am! *hides head in shame*

    I'm also concerned because I will have to keep working and as I work in aged care and it being extremely physically demanding at times I need to make sure I am fitter and prepared for it.

    BMI is probably your best guide. There is a lot more to what is a healthy weight than BMI, but it is a good guide so you have some idea.
    For your height here are the weight ranges
    Obese = 87kg and over
    Overweight = 73 - 86kg
    Healthy = 54-72kg
    I would be aiming for 86kg for starters to pull you out of the top range.
    Good luck!!

    Yeah that's a good idea. I would probably work better with smaller goals anyways *fingers crossed*

    Well done on losing the 10 kilos
    I'm 110kg and need to and want to lose at least 30kgs! I have PCOS so the doc said to try and lose as much as I can and hopefully I will start seeing my periods regulate.

    Ive spoken to my doctor about this and as much as getting your weight down helps you still have the chance of getting pregnant without loosing it all.
    I am at the 94 mark atm (after being around where you were) and I do find it hard at times to loose more. Im hoping to be in the 80s when we fall but what happens happens as long as you are eating healthily and exercise to keep your strength up for labor thats all you can ask for

    When I fell pregnant I was 92 kilos. They automatically classed me as high risk, and I ended up with gestational diabetes and pre eclampsia. We decided to try for our second child in 2015 so we are both losing weight. I was 102 and am now 93 (after 1 month of dieting) I plan to get down to 80 at least by february. My incentive is the sooner I get healthy the sooner I have my next baby im also the same height as you too
