Hello! So I'm a little overweight ( not massively overweight but plump lol) and ttc this is my second cycle about to start in a few days. I know they say being overweight can affect your fertility and I was just wanting some other people in my situation to ttc with or people who have conceived being overweight x
we have a 9yr old and we were trying for ages and nothing was happening, i got to 106kgs went on optifast lost 21kgs in 5 months and felt sick on them and thought wait up tested and BFP my daughter is now 3, so we were trying all that time with nothing and then i lost the weight and bam pregnant so i think yes it can help to lose it
im now trying again (well have been again since she was born basically) i again have gained back a heap of weight so ifm im not pregnant this cycle gonna start back on my shakes, im not allowed on birth control so i am always at risk of pregnancy but just doesnt happen, for some reason my body likes to be in the 80s ranges to fall pregnant
Nice to know we are not alone in wondering! Two of my closest friends are very overweight and both fell pregnant on one night stands so it can happen ladies and now the majority of the population is overweight and still conceiving
yea i think its just some people as i no a few people who are much heavier then me and get pregnant straight away to. and whats gets me worse is the husbands drink and smoke and still concieve where as hubby and I dont drink nor smoke at all lol
I am quite overweight, not ideal but there it is. I conceived on our first month trying with my dd. I had a relatively trouble free pregnancy. I did get carpal tunnel quite badly but no diabetes or anything like that. I was also expecting a big baby as this is what I had read but she came out a dinky 6lbs 4oz. Yes she has had some issues since birth but this is genetic and nothing to do with my weight whilst pregnant with her. I know that being a healthy weight is the ideal for conceiving and pregnancy but being overweight does not always equal problems x
My BMI is around 29, so in the overweight but not obese category. I'm 33. There's only been 3 cycles in my life where I've had unprotected sex during the fertile period.... and each time I've conceived. My children have both been born around the 50th centile and I've had no problems during pregnancy, other than the MMC which was likely a random event of nature.
