Team Curvy Bumps began when a group of ladies met each other on a thread about plus sized women trying to conceive. You can visit that thread here
We soon all became firm friends and have been there for eachother in many ways.
Sometimes just having someone to listen to your inner most thoughts and reassure you that you aren't crazy or alone is all you need to get by in this sometimes long but usually painful journey of trying to make that baby.
Don't be intimidated by the fact that some people already know each other here, you are very welcome to come and join our crazy curvy bump team.
If you need support, a shoulder to cry on, or just a sounding board to shout and rant at, that's what we are here for.
Here you will find a group of wonderful ladies of all different shapes and sizes from all over the world.
They all have one thing in common....

As you all know each other here's a little about my journey...
Aged 23 i came off BC and began TTC with my (ex) fiancé.. 18 months later and no sign of bump testing began. My ovulation tests came back as abnormal, my invasive STD tests - all clear! His SA... now that's where our biggest issue lay, he was almost sterile. Went to see specialist and was told we only had a 20% even with ICSI (IXI)(sp?) IVF as his count and mobility was so low. On the IVF waiting list i went at age 26 - told no treatment til i was 30!! Also told to lose 5 stone in weight (which i did easily losing 4 stone in 5 months). Unfortunately our relationship broke down (not due to fertility, but due to him being a control freak) and we went our separate ways.
4 years ago i met the love of my life who has 2 boys and we're now TTC my #1. I'm still a big girl, with a big heart and a great guy by my side who makes me laugh everyday. He has said we will only have 1 child as he is concerned about his age (40) so fingers crossed for twins
aw shells - that's quite a sad story, but now you have the love of your life and know he's capable of producing good swimmers! So fingers crossed everything will work out!
Are you trying anything new for TTC or weightloss?
It has been very very difficult in the past, i know the heartache very well of everyone having children and that longing for your own. However the past is past and as you say his swimmers are good so i have optimism, hope and excitement... i just hope it lasts!
