In brief: Many.
Pre-eclampsia and eclampsia are much increased in the obese pregnant female.
The hyperinsulinemia will usually cause and increased birth weight, and a debate is on about the long term impact of the child. An obese pregnant female should gain much less weight than her thinner counterpart.
