My first pregnancy also ended in a miscarriage...I was 190lbs.
My second pregnancy was with the aid of Metformin since I have PCOS. It was a terrible pregnancy with gestational diabetes, renal failure/pre-eclampsia. I was 280lbs when I was induced and came home weighing 240lbs from recieving lasiks for severe water retention. I was MISERABLE....I cried and cried because I was so uncomfortable. I had to be induced at 38 weeks because my kidneys were failing, and my blood sugar was around 400, also high blood pressure. I didn't find out about the pre-eclampsia until after my c-section.
My first pregnancy was before I found out about the PCOS. I was carrying twins...they run in my family. I hyperovulated...on my own. Anyway, that contributed to developing gestational diabetes the second time (and the PCOS).
Trisha--proud stay at home mommy and wife.
My pregnancy was fairly good. I started it around 255lbs and delivered at 297. I am around 260 now I think.
I felt fairly good over all, but I did get a sore leg quite often, almost like sciatica and it would go numb if I was standing for too long. I don't think I would have had that had I not been so overweight.
I also missed not having that tell-tale baby bump. That would have been awesome, I was just that person that they never knew if I was pregnant or just fat.

My first pregnancy I was around 173 and delivered at 177(27w 4d-due to incompetent cervix)
My second I was around 175 and delivered at 217. Just really bad nausea, and really swollen around the time I went into labor. I had a lot of sleepless nights due to numb legs and feet tho.
My first pregnancy I weighed 250 post pregnancy, 260 two days before the end of pregnancy, and 233 a week after the pregnancy. It was a fairy enjoyable easy pregnancy except for the two months of GD that I don't think I would've gotten if I wasn't overweight.
This pregnancy, I don't know what I weighed before hand, but I carry my weight all over my body, instead of concentrated anywhere, and my skinny jeans size 18 were just barely starting to get skinny in the month I conceived. Seeing as how I was still breastfeeding I didn't realize I might be pregnant until I was about two almost three months along. I weighed 219 then, and now at almost 4 months I weigh 230. I'm having to go through alot more monitoring because of the weight and previous GD to try and catch it earlier if it happens this time.
I lost my first four pregnancies, between 295 and 320. I gained a bit after the last miscarriage, and didn't get pregnant again until I hit 290 in July. They never said that they thought it had anything to do with my weight though (turns out I have a tilted uterus and MTHFR).
The only issue I really have, enjoyment wise, is that I won't be having the cute bump pics so many others post. My husband and I know where my personal bump is, of course, but I'm far too embarrassed and self-conscious to take pictures for comparison.
