Hi, I am new here and I am 33.
We have been trying to conceive for over a year. Had a misacarriage at 6 wks in December and a another miscarriage last week at 7 wks. I have had PCOS for over 10 years. Now Dr's think I have LPD as well due to my progetesterone dropping and causing last miscarriage. Used Metformin for both pregnancies. Will probably try Clomid the next time we TTC in a couple of months. I am wondering if anyone else has had similar experiences and had has success with just the Clomid or if they needed progesterone supplementation too.

How long you been TTC? Since Dec 2004
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? I am not sure, just the doctor telling me to lose a little.
Anything else you want us to know? We were married in March 2004, we are very happy and just want to add a baby to our family. We had a MC in October 2005, I got a little down this month because of my due date. I am hoping to mellow out a little and just try to relax and maybe that will help. I lurked here a little before but I slacked off for a while. Good luck to everyone and I hope to get to know you better. :babydustpink:

How long you been TTC? Well, we just started in April, got pregnant immediately and last week I had a m/c so as soon as we get the go-ahead from my doctor, we are going to try again
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? I am not sure, this is all really new for me. I am going to see my doctor next week and I am hoping she will let me know if there is anything else I need to know
Anything else you want us to know?! I really want to get pregnant (I know we all do) and I am really not sure how to keep track of things, or what things I should be keeping track of, and when the best time to bd is, and all that stuff, so any info would be great. Oh- and I think I am going to get back on a diet this week, maybe that will help.
I'm Jean..22 yrs old
Currently don't want to get pregnant due to me having Cushing's disease and I need to have a second surgery for that so I want to wait at least another year or so to get pregnant but if it happens, it happens, I'll just have to deal with it..it's just that if I got pregnant now, i'd have to wait like a yr to have surgery.. and the reason i'm overweight now is b/c of the disease I have and I really want to lose some weight before getting pregnant.. ya know what I mean, ladies???
Me and my bf have been 2 gether for 9 months now.. he wants a baby soo bad but understands that I need the surgery so he's willing to wait.. but, i'm sorta in a prob right now..last month I didn't get my period, i've been very tired and somewhat nauseated but took a HPT and it was neg... i hope i'm not pregnant.. i'll wait to see if my period comes this month and if not, i'll do another HPT and if it's neg again, then i'll go get a blood test...please pray for me that i'm not...Jean

What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? I suspect that my weight may be contributing to our conception difficulties, but I know that it's not the only issue we are facing.
Anything else you want us to know?! I'm happily married to a wonderful man named Scott. We have been TTC our first together since his VR in September 2003. We recently learned that there are problems with DH's sperm count (as in he had none at his last SA) but I'm not giving up hope. Just waiting for our miracle! :D
TTC status: Just starting - DH just gave the jo ahead to start trying
Other: I am a 24 year old accountant, about to be 25 here in a few weeks. I have been overwight since graduating from high school. I have wanted to have a baby for some time now, but my weight has been holding me back. I am so scared of having complications and having them blamed on my weight. I am actually a pretty healthy person, and very active, I just happen to have about 100 extra pounds on me. I am 5' 6" and weigh approximately 266 lbs.
We are going to start trying in our next cycle. This will be our first baby, so everything is scary to me right now. I am really excited though. I have been stalking this board for about a month now, and wanted to get a feel of what you all are like before posting anything.I look forward to getting to know you all better.

What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? i guess the most annoying is bein told that because i am overweight it is messing up my cycles and that if i loose the weight it will be normal again. i began havong irregular menstruals at age 16 and i was not overweight then. one time i went a 10 months without having my menses. ever since i have been really ttc with dh, i have gone as much as 4 months without it. it is just annoying ttc and not having anything work to regulate u.
anything else?? we have been married for 2 years. my husband has 2 kids from a previous relationship. his daughter is 8 and a half and his son is 5 and a half. they are our world. dh says that since i already take care of them as my own, that if we cant have any kids together it's ok. and i know that i love them like they were mine, but i want to know what its like to see a BFP, and to feel the baby kick, and to have that bond. i am currently taking metformin 1000 mg a day. hope we can all help each other with advice and form lots of good friendships along the way.

How long you been TTC: I haven't been trying to conceive, but I'm planning on it sometime in the next year. I'm trying to plan either a Cancer baby or a Pisces baby.
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized: In truth, I was told that I would have a difficult time getting pregnant because I'm overweight (5'9" and 240 lbs) and because my uterus is tilted back. The only time my husband and I were unprotected, I got pregnant and I knew I was pregnant within 4 days. I am completely healthy except for the weight problem.
Anything else you want us to know: I just turned 33. My husband and I have been together since 1993. We were married in 1998. We put off children to finish university and start our careers (we both have 7 years of university with post-graduate degrees). We are both employed as teachers. We have a two year old daughter named Mia Fae and I had complications carrying her (pre-eclampsia) that resulted in being flown by air ambulance to a nearby city, hospital bed rest for one month, an emergency c-section, a premature baby (born 2 months early at 3.3 lbs), and the inability to breast feed. I have a 40% chance of developing pre-eclampsia with my second baby. I'm very nervous about it so I really want to lose weight to give my next baby the best chance at health.
Please feel free to visit the blog my husband made of our daughter:
