    What do you consider plus size? If you go by what doctors say, I'm plus size- but I'm 175 lbs (apparently I'm supposed to be 140 lbs...I'm 5'6 and if I go down to that weight I have a humongous head! I was that size at one point!). My periods are pretty regular (except for last month's 5 day late episode, my period came on day 26-27 like clockwork)

    I'm also trying to conceive my first :) it will be my OH's second, though.

    I'm a big girl, but know that losing weight helps! Not only does it make for a potentially lighter and healthier pregnancy....I'm still afraid I'm too heavy to be noticably pregnant until I'm ready to burst. :x I don't need to be a twig, but I'd love a cute baby bump when carrying.
    I'm also TTC my very first, an already loved and very much yearned for LO that only exists as a dream right now.
    My cycle has gotten better since I've lost weight, too. My doctor didn't hesitate to prescribe clomid to assist in conceiving.
    But I'll always be a big girl. At my thinnest, I was 135lbs, and at 5'2", I was still a size 10. I'm the product of a short, heavier woman and a tall, thin man...which produced a girl with a wide frame like a tall person, large feet. (size 10 there, too!)...and a short stature.
    Anyway...I'm totally with you! Here's to us. :)

    Aelanu - oh my goodness, no, haha, I'm not 135 right now. I'm a roller coaster. As I said, that was my thinnest, and I was still in double-digit clothes.
    Right now I'm.....embarrassed to say I'm 217lbs. But that's down from 250 January 1st!

    Hiya, I am plus size (uk size 24/26) and I have been TTC since december 09. Had a very early miscarriage in Septmeber 10 and didn't have a period again until 2 weeks ago. My periods we "fairly" regular before the miscarriage so I have no idea what to expect since my period in march, I am waiting to see if they will fall back into a cycle or if they will just disappear again. I am considering doing a food replacement diet just purely to loose weight to help increase my fertility so I can get a BFP.
    For those women who are a uk size 20/22 just so you know, my first pregnancy I was a 20/22 and I show'd fairly early on, i'd say i looked pregnant from about 4 5 months and i was HUGE by six months ( i looked like i was 9 months...seriously). Good luck everyone... and baby dust to all!!

    I'm a plus sized girl, but luckily have pretty regular periods, 28-30 day cycles, we're on Cycle 1 of TTC and I'm pretty sure I missed my day because while my cycles are regular my LP varies month to month. I'm at 255 (down from 260 but 30 lbs of that 260 was from severe depression after my m/c in November, I couldn't bring myself to get out of bed and all I wanted to do was eat, for over a month) I'm eating healthy now and hoping that will help, but we'll see. :dust:

    I'm with you gals! I am 5'9 & 240lbs I am dieting and going to the gym but it is hard. My cycles where pretty irregular until I quit smoking. Strangely they now seem to be regulating...hopefully.

    Weight Watchers works. I lost 80 lbs in a year and I've got about 20 left to go. I started at 247 and I'm now 165. It's not easy but once you get into it, you get used to it! :)

    I decided to lose weight because I wanted to be a healthy mom. I wanted to hold my baby without my boobs, or stomach getting in the way.

    When I was overweight I had very irregular periods which were anywhere from 20-45 days long. We tried for a year while I was overweight... and nothing! Now my cycles are pretty much 30 exact for the past 4 cycles. Losing weight helps!!

    Here's to hoping we all get our much deserved BFP's as soon as God's says it's time! He is good to us. Trust in him! :)
