weight and pregnancy

Hi doc
Is it true that my chances is better to fall pregnant when I am my ideal weight, and not overweight?
Thanks Tarien

I am underweight and I managed to fall pregnant twice. My BMI is only 17.

Same with me. I was also overweight on both occasions when I became pregnant.

Hi there.

I would not say so. I am now 25 weeks pg and a bit overweight. A friend of mine gave to birth to a baby born 3 weeks ago, she is very overweight.

It is basically up to your ovulation time, stress etc. When you do fall pg, just start eating right. Plenty of fruit and veggies. I have salad everyday with lunch.

Good lock, I hope I have helped in some way.
