does weight matter?

I'm perfctly healthy and I'm 20 years old, 5 "7" and 105 lbs. I was wondering if weightcould affect the chance of getting pregnant? Are you less likely to become preggo if you are pretty light?

  • Yes, weight does matter. Well, actually your bmi. You bmi needs to be within the normal range, neither under or over weight. Being too thin or too heavy can affect hormones, thus delaying ovulation or even stopping ovulation. You also need the right amount of hormones to sustain a pregnancy once you do get pregnant.

  • people will disagree with me but being super skinny if you're eating habits aren't good, certainly doesn't help in getting pregnant. All the super fit and thin women I know had trouble getting preggo. I don't know but could be true.

  • its not always true, im 5'6 and 108lbs and im 1 month pregnant and so far ive been having the best first pregnancy, i havent got morning sickness or even had the urge to vomit, you can tell that i do have some weight in my belly though and that im starting to gain, so its not always true, as long as you take care of yourself you should be fine
