    I've just come back on here too. It all got a bit stressful and upsetting so I took a back seat for a while. Could do with a buddy, my friends don't really understand as those that have babies either weren't trying or got pregnant first month! Are you in the UK?

    Hi ladies, just wanted to share some experiences. I think you are all doing a wonderful thing trying to get your bodies to optimum health, but I really don't think weight has anything to do with it. I think some docs just use it as an excuse not to investigate further.

    My heavily overweight friend has conceived with no bother 3 times!! Ok, this is one person, but if everything in your body is working well then is shouldn't matter your size.

    I have a lower than 25 BMI and am LTTC. When I went to get it checked at the hospital I said to the nurse 'oh I can't look', she replied, 'you've got nothing to worry about you're nice and slim'. Fair enough.

    However, I have just had a lap which has shown a blocked tube and a little endo. Yes I am just one person and I do think you're all doing a great job getting healthier. But, I would really challenge the health professionals to look deeper into your body. xx

    Heya, I did use to hope think that it wasn't my weight
    But I've had all test done and also my partner had hsg done o/h sperm tests all
    Fine blood tests to see if I've ovulating and also to check how many eggs I've got and if they are ok. So it comes down to the fact I'm over weight which apparently reduces my chances by at least 8% each month when u think ur chanes of conceiving ate only 25% each month it's does not leave much hope really sonive decided to rule it out but yet ah there are some bigger people than me that don't have any issues conceiving and yeah it blood frustrating xx
