Being overweight and pregnant caused me to have a lot more doctors visits than the standard. I also developed gestational diabetes (which is not necessarily a weight thing) during pregnancy and had to see a dietitian every week. You get into a really bad circle because the doc wants you to exercise but with the added weight it's a lot harder. I got my diet on track as soon as I found out I was pregnant and only gained 9 lbs throughout my entire pregnancy. Of course there are plenty of overweight women who have babies but it is so much easier if you take care of things before you conceive.
