Anyone Over 40 And Obese TTC

April - January 18

I'm 43 and childless. I can't bear the thought of not having a baby. I haven't actually been trying yet because I have just recently gotten involved in a serious relationship. Another problem, my doctor gave me such a hard time about my weight last time I saw him that I don't know how he will react if I ask him for fertility drugs. I don't know what my chances would be trying to conceive naturally, but from what I hear it doesn't sound good. Any advice?

How much overweight are you? I know it's definitely healthier to be closer to a healthy weight. But I myself just got pregnant before being able to lose weight from my first baby. Which is sad cause she's 15 months old. It's tough. Anyway, I am worried myself about being pregnant now while 40 + heavier than my 1st pregnancy. I haven't talked to a dr yet. Let us know what he says... but definitely if it's possible, try to have a child. It's the best thing ever! And although she's had problems, my sister was way way overweight when she had her 2nd child. Good luck!

Oh, and I'm not quite 40, but getting closer.. I'll be 37 in 3 months.

Check out this website about plus size pregnancy. It is good.
