I'm Melinda and I'm 29. My DH and I are waiting to TTC in August, mostly so that I can take the time to lose the rest of the baby weight from my first, and a little more beyond that :) I was 253 when I delivered, and I'm at 207 now, 7lbs away from my pre preg weight.
We started TTC our first baby May 2004. I got my first BFP in early March 05, but then miscarried at 6 weeks. I got another BFP in early June, and our son was born February 06 :)
As for obstacles with being plus sized, I really didn't have any. It took us a year, but we weren't "seriously" trying. No charting or anything until I got pregnant the second time. I didn't have any health issues while pregnant, never even caught a cold! My doctor was great too, my weight was never brought up unless I mentioned it. In fact, at each visit's weigh in, my weight wasn't mentioned. I kept track on my at home scale and was happy with that!
Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone here!
Hi, I am Erica.
Lets see here. I had started Deop in May of 2003. I had my last shot in August of 2004. Well the Doc said I was supposed to start AF within 3 months. Yeah right. Nothing till I went to the dr in Nov 2005. He gave me provera to induce AF, and then clomid. Well the provera never did anything, so i never got to the clomid. Got fed up with dr and went to a new one. She gave me promotrium (sp?) and well that did nothing for me either. :? She ran a bunch of blood work, and told me I have PCOS. (March 2006) Of course, this makes so much sence after researching this. I was supposed to start taking Metformin 3x a day, 1500 mg. I started to do that for a while. Bad things have happend this year, and that was the last thing on my mind, so I was not very faithful. I started back up again in September. I had AF on Sept 27, 2006. Lasted normal 5 days or so. I am still waiting for her to show again. I would love to start charting, but I wanna start fresh, so if only AF would come.......
I am Erica, DH is Ron, Married in July 2004. Stoped preventing 100% in Feb 2006. No kiddies, No Fur Babies. Just me and DH!! I look forward to getting to know everyone.

How long you been TTC? My husband and I have been TTC since April 04
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? My infertility specialist hasn't told me to loose weight yet but I know I need to. I do believe my cycles are messed up do to weight issues and also that my sex drive isn't up to par because of them as well.
Anything else you want us to know?! Even though I've been TTC for almost 3 years, I am new to TTC with infertility issues. I just saw the Infertility doc for the first time today and he started me on 500 mg of Metformin and 10mg of Provera. He believes I have PCOS, which I knew I had that from the time I was 16. We are also getting my husband tested as well.
I can't wait to actually believe that I can have positive outcomes from this. The past 3 years have been really heart breaking for me. It feels like my husband and I have been trying forever and getting no where. Now there is more hope than ever.
How long you been TTC? My DH and I have been married for 8 months, been TTC for 4 months.
What challenges have you ran into on your TTC journey because of being Plus sized? I've been told I'll have 'difficulty' getting pregnant - in the past I have had cysts in my ovaries (but not enough to be polycystic)
Anything else you want us to know?! We haven't been trying that long, but we don't want anyone to know that we're trying because of the pressure (we're already getting so much pressure!) so I wanted to join a group where I can actually talk about things and be disappointed or ecstatic when it DOES happen. Also hoping to learn a thing or two to maybe make this journey happier and easier.
I am Nicole, 32. DH and I have been trying since last January for a second one. We have one son who will be 3 on March 12. My cycles are very crazy(have been since I was a teenager). We haven't done any charting yet-and I have recently lost about 17 pounds in hopes that diet and exercise would help with my cycles. I am having my check up in May and we will see what the doctor says and go from there. Looking forward to getting to know everyone.
