See a doctor. Address your health issues and weight before getting pregnant. It'll be easier for you in the end.

Pregnancy isn't the easiest thing on your body & can make a lot of things worse.  If you have health issues it's most likely in your (and baby's) best interests to have them under control before becoming pregnant.

If you see your doctor maybe you can get an action plan together to meet your goal.

i am overweight and pregnant. i was prediabetic before i got pregnant and now have gestational diabetes. it has been hard but taught me how to eat healthier. Talk to your doctor and get a check up. if there are any issues try to take care of them before trying to get pregnant.

low to zero carb--it will clear up the weight issue and reduce your risk of gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, need for C-section and risk of macrosomia.  FYI I was over 200 with all of my pregnancies and have actually lost weight throughout my pregnancies until just before they were born.  I am currently 37 weeks pregnant and weigh 7 lbs less than when I first took a test!
