Overeating may cause obesity issues for kids later in life
I have never been the skinniest girl on the block - I will never be the 90 pounds like my cousin is (AFTER TWO CHILDREN), or like the anorexic bimbo that graces the cover of US WEEKLY - and because of this, I do admit to having some body issues.
My fiance knows about these little 'issues' and although some times teases me about them, loves me unconditionally and supports me and my little neurosis and I do mean ALL of them. *sigh*
There is a chance that I am pregnant. which is fantastic because I've wanted to be a mother since - wow, as long as I can remember.
Feeling good about yourself is the key to making the most of the childbearing year. A woman who feels good about herself will celebrate the changes that her body experiences during pregnancy, look forward to the challenge of giving birth, and willingly accept the physical and emotional changes of the postpartum period.
Dear Fitness Expert,
How overweight is too overweight to be pregnant? Is it dangerous to the baby to be very obese? I'm 23 and at least 100 lbs. overweight and would like to become pregnant within the next 2 years. Any advice?
