I've been trying to lose weight because DH and I would like to have a baby. I already have 2 dc's from my previous marriage and was told that because I have such big children (dd 9lb 4oz, ds 10lb 13oz) that I would have to have a c-section next time! Well I didn't think there ever would be a next time but now I am married again and DH would like to have a child of his own.

I am well aware of the complications that can arise from being overweight and pregnant but my weight loss just doesn't seem to be happening. I have been going to weight watchers for 7 months and at one stage I did lose a stone but half of that has crept back on. I've had thyroid tests and even had blood tests and a scan for suspected PCOS as my periods are very irregular, but so far nothing has shown up.

I'm kind of thinking I might not wait until I have lost weight to ttc. Has anyone else or is anyone else ttc when overweight or has anyone had a pregnancy when overweight?
Would just like an insight please.
