I agree about the diet and exercise comments as well. I started at 200 lbs. for two of my three pregnancies (for the middle one I was at 182 and gained 20 pounds). For the two times I was at 200 lbs. I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and I gained less than 10 pounds total for each by the end and had healthy sized babies. My drs. monitored me very closely, I visited a dietitian at a hospital for advice, and I watched what I ate. I actually lost 20 pounds mid-way through the first one and they said it was from eating right. It's hard, but it can be done. The healthy baby at the end is a great motivator!
