Pediatrics - Endocrinology
In brief: Good question
There has been a lot of scientific interest especially in the endocrine community in the so called "fetal programming" which studies the effect of maternal hormonal milieu on the developing fetus.
One recent study looked into risk of metabolic syndrome in early adulthood and found it to be directly linked to mother's BMI during time of conception of these individuals. Healthy weight is the goal.

In brief: Ovulation difficulty
This condition is becks a woman doesn't predictably ovulate.
So getting pregnant may be more difficult. Sometimes fertility drugs are needed to resolve this problem during pregnancy some of these women are more likely to get gestational diabetes. All of this can be managed by good care before conception and during the pregnancy. Weight loss, good nutrition, and exercise can help too.
