I am very overweight I weighed myself on the scale yesterday 265 when I was pregnant with my son I weight 200 pounds and that was 6 years ago. I'm hoping my weight will not affect me TTC #2. I know I have high cholesterol, it's not high enough to need medication though, My Dr. told me if I lost weight my cholesterol would go down, also have a fatty liver as I got my gallbladder removed in 2006, so now I don't have that extra filter and being overweight and eating the way I do causes most of the fat to go straight to my liver. But I have been replacing breakfast with a soy meal replacement shake, Hoping to drop the 65 pounds I gained.

I just wanted to tell you beautiful ladies not to stress to much, I am a big ol girl, just stepped on scale at my 12 week appt & I weigh 279lbs 5'6, and I have lost 13 pounds in my 1st trimester so far. I am pregnant with # 5 and I have never had any health issues during any of my pregnancies. I was pregnant with my 1st at 19, weighing about 222 lbs, and now I am 34 and weigh 279, so really I have been fat with all of them. All pregnancies were normal, healthy and normal deliveries. As someone said being overweight does not automatically equal health issues/pregnancy issues. Dont let anyone let you feel that way either, wether medical professional or not!
I'm 5'9 and when I started ttc I was 245lbs and I started eating more clean and exercising every day I'm now 200-205 and got pregnant twice since I lost weight (but lost both my loves). Before I lost weight I never even got a maybe bfp, being healthier really helps..still a work in progress. Good luck girls
