Pregnancy created MAJOR problems for my Candida. It is the perfect environment for Candida. If you research Candida & pregnancy you will read about how it can exacerbate Candida.
In a period of two years I had 2 pregnancies (one ended in miscarriage). I was able to control my weight previous to my pregnancies, I could count calories for a week and drop 5lbs, if I needed to.
I have only recently began to loose weight after 10 months on the diet.
