High BMI

I have a high (well very high) BMI and am expecting my first baby. Just thought we could start a dissuasion to support each other through all the extra appointments this entails. I have seen a dietician and am about to have a gestational diabetes test done. How are you finding the medical care? I have been put as 'high risk' by the consultant but 'low risk' by the midwife. Anyone else going through the same thing or am I on my own? Thanks xx
