however I don't have any experience being overweight before the pgcy...but I know that this is hard enough having been in really good shape and in the last 2 weeks it's getting really hard. I can't imagine being overweight to begin with and then having twins....I know I'm hardly coping with our busy family and running after a 21 month old.
I went in today to the Dr. for a check up and I have gained 30 pounds todate...they say if you are of normal weight when you start your pgcy you should gain on average 35-45 pounds however if you are overweight to begin with you don't have to gain that much but I guess if you gained 50 pounds during your last pgcy...even watching your weight like a hawk could mean the same kind of weight gain.
There is a risk of gest diabetes, high blood pressure with twins..but if you are already overweight this risk is even higher. So far even though I'm 51...I've not had any issues, no gest diabetes, my blood pressure has been consistently low and no stretch marks either...I'm now measuring 38 weeks though so I look like i'm full term even though I still have 6 weeks before they will induce at 38 wks.
I do have heart burn...so bad that I am not gaining weight any longer...just can't eat...and I have lovely hemorhoids...though not really bad...a bit miserable...I don't ususally get them until the bitter end of my pgcies.
While the idea of getting it all over with in one fail swoop would be nice...if I were in your position I would be careful with the number you transfer to avoid multiples. Also I had my last Oe baby when I was 43 and although I felt 'old' at the time...I had a great pgcy with her and in hindsight there was still lots of time to have another...but we all look at age differently and have certain dreams in our heads...and hearts so follow yours.
I know my Dr. would have talked me out of transferring 3 blasts at our last FET had my BMI been high....he avoids multiple pgcies at all cost... but he knew that I carried our previous pgcy...had our DS when I was 49...to over full term, no complications during the pgcy, easy quick no meds labour and quick delivery despite him being almost 10 pounds....those weighed in to how he viewed me handling a twin or triplet pgcy.....what is your Dr. saying? Even though you gained alot last time...were you healthy overall?, did you have high blood pressure...diabetes, was your baby preterm,,,,, did you have an easy birth?...did you recover quickly?...those are things you want to think about too as you kind of have to be up and at it quickly after a twin birth...they will be like your personal trainers,lol.
Well good luck no matter what you decide, blessings from hope
