Greetings, ladies. I'm planning to get pregnant this summer but I'm obese. I've tried losing weight - so many times. It just never seems to work. I'm healthy... normal bp, sugar, cholesterol, etc... but I read so many horrible things about obesity and pregnancy. Despite my good health, am I putting myself and future baby at risk just by being obese? Should I be trying harder or do something more drastic or will I be okay? My mom is putting the fear of God in me by sending me all these articles... I mean, I eat well, you know? I abide by the "rainbow" rule and eat as many colors from fruits and veggies as I can stomach. I try hard to get enough of the nutrients I need. I just really, really love food and I love cooking. I'm going to step up my exercise here this month, start yoga, and I'm going to see a preconception holistic health therapist, so I really care about my body and I want to do my best to be healthy for myself and my family.
Any other BBWs out there who are pregnant and healthy? Are your doctors nice and compassionate? Do you feel good and is your baby healthy?
Thanks for reading!
