Welcome to the board! I don't have (or want) children, so I can't say I understand how you feel. But I do know that it is hard to want something it feels like you can't have. I think your doctors are probably thinking of the strain having a baby, and especially with the support of pretty powerful drugs, will have on your body, which is probably already working hard to support your weight. You can embrace this as a challenge - to get healthy enough to get pregnant and deliver a healthy baby. You have a great goal to use to motivate yourself. Best wishes SJ

I guess the part that annoys me is I was roughly this weight last time she gave me clomid to get pregnant with my son Wyatt. I had a healthy pregnancy and actually left the hospital a day early after having a c-section. But suddenly now it is wrong to help me get pregnant. Grrrrrrr! Oh well! Nothing I can do but lose weight and keep TTC on our own.

That's definitely frustrating. I'm sorry, but hopefully with all of the medical tests and help, you'll be able to lose weight, feel better and have a healthy pregnancy as well!
