Well, there are different medical categories: overweight, obese, morbidly obese

The morbidly obese have a lot of problems with pregnancy and especially with multiples and preterm birth, preemies, and micro preemies with time in the NICU. There just isn't enough room in the torso left, the pregnancy puts pressure on the cervix and organs due to early crowding from excess fat, and the babies arrive way too early. The running out of room early also can happen with very short and short waisted women with multiples.
I don't remember the definitions exactly for obese and morbidly obese, I think they are BMI of 35 and BMI of 40. The overweight category is usually OK. Since you have had a healthy pg before that is a good sign though.
