Obese and Yearning For a Baby

I am morbidly obese and have been told many times that it is not safe for me to become pregnant. I am not on any medication and do pilates 3 times a week. I cannot get to grips with the diet aspect and it is interfering with my plans for a baby. I would like to hear from you what experiences you guys had with obesity and pregnancy

Hello,<br />
I'm not sure if you are currently having this issue still, but we are working on a new TLC program that will be focusing on people struggling the same pregnancy issues you are facing. If you have any interest in being interviewed, please contact us at pregnancyshowcasting@gmail.com The show will treat the subject matter and all those involved with the utmost respect.<br />
Thank you for your time.

I'm not sure how much you weigh, but when I got pregnant with my first child I was 180 (I am 5'3") and went up to 260. Got pregnant with my 2nd child at 230 and gained up to about 250. I carry most of my weight in my middle and thighs and except for working hard at NOT gaining weight while pregnant I had no complications at all. I know a few people that have been in my same shoes and it can be done, it just takes a ton of will power while pregnant. Good luck!!
