    There are more complications in women who weight more than 200 pounds, generally speaking. They're at greater risk for gestational diabetes, large babies, and some other things. Doesn't mean women who are bigger than that can't or shouldn't have babies. It just means they'll need to be watched closer by their OB or midwife.

    I was over 350 when I had my son. They were careful to keep checking for gestational diabetes, but other than that, I had no problems with being pregnant. He was born early, but a lot of kids are, to women of all sizes. Unless you've got other/preexisting health issues, fatness isn't a barrier to a healthy pregnancy.
