Try drinking more water and do little exercises and build it up gradually.

If your trying to conceive take folic acid and get your partner to take it develops healthy sperm for men...

I know some overweight people who have conceived so it's not impossible.

Get an app and track your cycle. Have sex every other day after you're period. Especially during ovulation. Sometimes it just happens.

If you’re wanting to lose a little weight, try tracking or logging your food on my fitness pal. It’s free! There’s another app I use, FitOn which has loads of workouts - all free!

Hello! I have a bmi of 44 and am newly pregnant, 4+5 today.
Have been trying for 5 years and 4 months - and sad to say it probably was my weight stopping me falling pregnant in all that time. I have extremely poor will power to diet! But getting pregnant has given me a kick up the arse to eat healthily now. I've got rid of all my junk food and bought loads of fruit and veg, and I'm using myfitnesspal to keep my calories at around 1800 a day. Good luck!
