How much more risky is it to be overweight? I'm 223 pounds, yes it is a lot but I have thyroid problems that I am trying to work out. I want to lose the weight and I do eat a healthy diet, don't smoke or do anything else that could harm a growing baby. I want another child but I'm scared of the weight issue and I've had 3 other c-sectrions. what do you think?Answer Question

well i was like 250 when i had my first two and like 235 when i had my third one and i didn't have any problems (but i'm 5'10 so i guess that's not as bad as if i were very short or something). they might have a harder time placing the spinal or epidural, but other than that you should be ok. gl :) o btw my hubby does anesthesia all the time for big ladies (and i mean like 300+ lbs.) and i have not heard of any problems and he does it alot.
