WEIGHT BEFORE PREGNANCY, COMPLICATIONS, BIRTH DEFECTS

Weight can affect pregnancy and baby

Since most Americans have a tendency to be overweight, let me say here that obesity isn’t just linked to infertility, it has also been linked to premature births, and even birth defects.[1]  You should address your weight issues before you try to conceive because you don’t want to be dieting when pregnant.  There also seems to be evidence that conception is less likely to occur when body weight is declining.

Here is a chart which should help you evaluate whether or not your weight is in the normal range by calculating your body mass index or BMI:

1.      Multiply your weight in pounds by 703 and divide that number by your height in inches
2.      Divide the result of #1 again by your height in inches

A score below 18.5 indicates being underweight.
Between 18.5 and 24.9 means a healthy body weight.
Between 25 and 29.9 means you are overweight.
Between 30 and 39.9 indicates obesity
A score of 40 or higher indicates morbid obesity
