    Hi everyone,
    we have been ttc for a few months now with no luck. We got pg straight away with our first child so I am getting a bit concerned that nothings happening. I have been told that because i am more overweight this time that that could be the reason. Does anyone know if this is the case?
    I'd really love to hear from you

    Hello, I don't know from personal experience, but I have read that if a person is over weight it can hamper conception. I have also read that if a woman loses 5% of her weight it will inhance her chances of conception. Hope this helps.

    BABY DUST TO ALL!!!!!!!!

    Hi, what you have been told is true to a point. You need to check your body mass index (BMI) if this is over 30 then it may reduce your chances of conception.
