Well first of all congratulations! There is no problem being over weight and pregnant as long as you are not massively overweight. Go and talk to your midwife ans she will be able to recommend a healthy diet to help you keep weight gain to a minimum with still enough nutrients for the baby to be healthy. Lots of over weight women have babies it is nothing new. Tell your worries to the midwife and she will be able to advise you.

I had my second child when my other was 3.5, and I wasn't ready either. It was an oops. But I got through it. I wasn't overweight but you can always exercise safely during pregnancy. You can also come up with a diet plan like Louise said. Talk to your doctor or midwife and ask them.
