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 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!!
