I doubt your weight would mean you couldn't go ahead with a termination. It shouldn't do anyway but you could always ask when you call up to arrange an appointment x

It would probably be best to have a look on your local clinic's website, send an email to them or give them a call. Sorry I can't offer much help, but that way you'll get a definite and clear answer smile good luck to you OP x

Definitely not. If you were very overweight I suppose there might be additional anaesthetic risks for surgical termination but other than that your weight will not be an issue. All the best OP, hope everything works out OK
