I am 32 and have had 2 very healthy 9lb babies (10 & 4 yrs old). I weighed 110 when I got pregnant the first time, around 150 the second time.
Last June I got pregnant but it ended up being a "blighted ovum" at around 12 weeks. :(
The Doctor that I saw made a comment that kinda stuck in my head. He said something to the effect of how hard it is to get the exam outer/inner done very well with over weight patients. I think this comment was made after I sighed because of the amount of pressure he was using to do the exam. Anyway, it stuck in my head. I have ended up blaming myself for losing the baby because of my weight. Which has only made me gain more. I now weigh around 210. My whole goal this past year was to lose weight before I got pregnant again, that hasn't gone very well. How much can my being over weight effect me getting pregnant?
Ps I never had any complications with my other 2 pregnancies. And we really haven't been trying hard to get pregnant, but are trying now. I only have the last 2 or 3 periods to go by. My cycle seems to be between 30-35 days long.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
