High BMI (over 40) before conception. Have you had problems in pregnancy?

It's very early days for me (4w+2).

However I just wanted to see if there any others out there with a really high BMI?

Obviously it'd have been preferable for me to be a healthy weight before getting pregnant but we are where we are.

I've lost some weight recently ( which probably helped me conceive). I have an underactive thyroid, so have a doctors appointment this week.

I want to ask him for a higher folic acid dose and to review my thyroid medication.

I am scared he's going to tell me off! Can anyone let know how you've been treated and if you've been scalded?

I know I'll probably be referred for consultant care and will need to have the GD test. But I dont know what else might happen that I haven't thought of.

Grateful to anyone who can help.

Good point there Sammi. I've got such a limited amount of clothes I can wear now, has anyone found any plus size maternity coats that don't cost an arm and a leg? I'm thinking I might have to resort to ponchos when it gets really chilly.
