Hey guys! Well, I still received some reports about pregnancy even though the woman is overweight and decided to post part of the original text. Getting pregnant even though you are overweight may not be that easy, and may require some extra care, such as the cases of readers Bianca and Pollyana, who had some problems during pregnancy. So, these testimonies serve as a warning, just be aware of possible problems that may appear even if everything is in order with health, extra care does not cost anything and can detect any problem early. Thanks for the testimonial girls!
My first pregnancy in 2009 was after two and a half years of trying. I was overweight, in that period I discovered that I have a blocked horn and I took 3 cycles of Serophene. I was also on a diet and I lost a few pounds before I got pregnant, I think it helped a lot.
I was unable to lose weight and did not adopt any contraceptive method until I became pregnant again in 2012. My second pregnancy was risky, it was necessary to lose weight and in general I did not gain weight during the 38 weeks.In the first pregnancy I had gestational diabetes, only with diet I was able to maintain. In the second, diabetes and high blood pressure were confirmed, since the 8th week, in total there were 4 hospitalizations. Because my diabetes decompensated and even with medication my pressure was 17 x 10. I used insulin 3 times a day.
I had 127 k and I got 131. I was taking contraceptives, but the doctor had said that I had polycystic ovaries and that I didn’t need to take them because I wouldn’t get pregnant easy. Then I stopped taking it, and I didn’t know that the contraceptive had regulated my cycle and that’s why I started to ovulate again. I felt the nipple sting a lot, a lot of sleep and a lot of colic. I took the exam thinking I had an infection and ended up finding out I was pregnant. I cried out in despair because of my weight . I have been having all of the symptoms of a normal pregnancy. Until 3 months of age I had contractions followed by diarrhea and I was hospitalized. I came back home. I had constant bleeding that I had to take Dactil OB the whole pregnancy to hold. The pressure was increasing a lot, I was taking 2 pills and she was still high.
I also had gestational diabetes. I was referred to the cardiologist, because if the pressure didn’t drop, the doctor would take the child at 6 months and I was at risk of life and he too.
It was one or the other. When I got to the cardiologist, the pressure was very high, so he asked me that day not to take any more pressure medication and I was supposed to come back the next day to see how much it would rise. At the time my despair was so great that the same night I went to an evangelical church, I asked God a lot, I cried too much.
The next day my blood pressure was 9/13 I couldn’t believe it and that was it until the end. (I started going to church) but today I’m a spiritist. The ending was very smooth, the doctor scored a cesarean at 39 weeks.
After my ex husband told me that before entering the operating room he warned him that the worst could happen. But everything went wonderfully. In 2003 I had a stomach reduction. In 2009 I got pregnant by my daughter (now 4 years old) due to my history I was referred for risk pregnancy by Unimed. But thank God I didn’t have anything, and I only gained 1k in her pregnancy. She was born by cesarean section too, but at 38 weeks.
The important thing as I said earlier is to pay attention to any abnormal symptoms and maintaining a healthy diet and controlling salt and bad fats in pregnancy can help a lot. However, these reports only serve as a warning for women to be aware of the risks and to be all right in the end.
Bjokas and until next time!
My name is Dr. Alexis Hart I am 38 years old, I am the mother of 3 beautiful children! Different ages, different phases 16 years, 12 years and 7 years. In love with motherhood since always, I found it difficult to make my dreams come true, and also some more after I was already a mother.
Since I imagined myself as a mother, in my thoughts everything seemed to be much easier and simpler than it really was, I expected to get pregnant as soon as I wished, but it wasn’t that simple. The first pregnancy was smooth, but my daughter’s birth was very troubled. Joana was born in 2002 with a weight of 2930kg and 45cm, from a very peaceful cesarean delivery but she had already been born with congenital pneumonia due to a broken bag not treated with antibiotics even before delivery.
