    hiya,
    quick question, may sound silly but for the last year or so at my heaviest my periods more or less stopped, and since dropping my 1st stone, i have had my first period woo hoo!!
    but i was just wondering why weight affects them?
    but not complaining, means when hubbys back from afhgan lots of baby dancing :D x

    Yay for you that's great news :D

    Don't really know why weight affects periods and such but I do know it's all to do with hormones etc and for some reason being under weight or over weight seems to throw them out??!!??

    I notice you are planning to try for a baby in the near future, me too ;)
    We tried most of last year for our second child without any luck but I was at my heaviest ever so it never happened. We stopped trying this year to give us chance to lose some weight first. When I get back to the weight I was when I conceived my son we are going to start trying again! (about a stone away)

    Hopefully we will both get what we want pretty soon :innocent0001:

    When I lost 5 stone on a previous diet years ago, I conceived my son almost immediately. I believe weight definately plays a part in baby making plans :D

    Good luck ladies ;)

    Thanx Rainbowrose,

    Babydust to you too Claire, hopefully when your hubby returns from Afghanistan you'll be in a place where you are able to get pregnant easily. Everything seems to be going in the right direction for you at the moment.

    Good luck with your diet and your babydancing ;);) xxxx
