Were you healthy before the pregnancy? That is the main factor that will determine if you are healthy during pregnancy. With my last child I was 37 years old weighed about 310 lbs at 5 ft 8 in but had no diabetes, no high blood pressure, was just obese. The strange thing was he was the only baby I had to have cesarean with not being of a health condition but because I had fallen about a week before he was born going to my doctor's appointment and when my water broke they found out that the cord was wrapped around his neck. Other than that I would have had a natural labor and delivery like with my other 3 (no drugs whatsoever). He was perfectly healthy at birth also (thank God).View Thread
