Hi Krishna,

Everyone's body is different and the important thing is to be fit and YOUR healthiest weight. I think your BMI might be a little higher than recommended (Body Mass Index calculations shows your ideal weight is upt to 64 kgs) but I know plenty of people who are over their ideal weight and have healthy, happy babies.

You are very welcome!
The doctors say you should never try to lose weight while pregnant. Although I have one friend, she was quite overweight before pregnancy, and she started eating really healthy and lost some weight during her first trimester. It wasn't intentional though, she wasn't on a weight loss diet.

If you're considering getting pregnant, I would advise you to modify your eating habits a little bit, more fruits and salads and cut out the junk food. That might bring down your weight a little and eating healthier makes you feel better overall. I think it's easier to conceive too if you're within normal weight range.

But I wouldn't stress too much over dieting. Being happy and in peace with yourself and your body is the best thing you can do for your self and your future baby
