Trying to conceive

My husband and I have been trying to conceive for 15 months now and still nothing.  It only took 6 months to conceive our first child.  I am a little overweight but can not seem to lose the pounds.  Could this be why?

Hi! Not sure how to help ya out here, but I wanted to know if you consulted your dr. or an RE? That's what I did after a year of no baby.  Still no baby for me...but you should talk to your doctor about secondary infertility. Good luck and keep us posted.

Do you guys have different blood types ? Being in the best of health and fitness does help in creating the right atmosphere and conditions for conceiving.

Pretty good question. I agree with both ladies.....please consult your dr/RE.
I know that the RE we used when ttc voa IVF told me that weight/good health does make a difference when ttc.  If you are already fit, and exercise regularly, then you should be able to safely continue with your exercise routine. I unfortunately, do not exercise regularly because of my hectic schedule (no excuse) so my RE told me not to stress and over do it as it could cause a delay in ttc.

I get so confused with contradictory information as some studies also show that women who exercise before and during pregnancy have half the risk of delivering prematurely.
