    Having a healthy body is key, it doesn't matter how big you are though. Just take care of yourself if you plan on getting pregnant.

      you don't have to be skinny to get pregnant, but if you're on a bigger side, it would be better to lose some weight because extra weight can cause unwanted problems such as gestational diabetes, high blood pressure,miscarriage,and birth defects. The best way to get down to a healthy pre-pregnancy weight is the tried-and-true method: diet ( I like Paleo) and exercise. Ask your doctor or GYN for tips on losing the weight safely.

        Even though being healthy and usually on the skinny side is optimal it is absolutly not a necessity. Even if you are bigger you can get pregnant and just make sure you eat healthy and take care of your self the best you can when you are pregnant. When you are bigger though it is harder to notice your baby bump or even feel kicks, if that is something you really want to enjoy while pregnant it would be better to lose weight but there is absolutly no corrilation between weight and fertility.
