  • With all due respect, I have heard that if you are overweight, it is harder to get pregnant. Not sure if it's true.

  • Folks always feel like I got a attitude...even when I don't. Also, I got pregnant after I lost a lot of weight. Good luck to you.

  • If you have been trying for that long, you are way overdue for a fertility specialist. We waited 4 years, and that was too long. It's possible your hormones could affect your moodiness, but you also could be clinically depressed.

  • If you mean 'moody' as in 'murderous rage' then, yes, your hormones are probably off kilter. If you have any of the other symptoms of PCOS, it's a good bet. Those symptoms include: thickening of the waist, weight gain, darkening and thickening of facial and body hair, breakouts particularly along the jawline...

    Another issue is sperm count: if you're not ...busy... every 2 days or so, your partner may simply not be making enough of the wiggly guys to get the job done. Make sure he's wearing loose, breathable pants, particularly underneath --body temperature is too hot for them to thrive. Boxers and baggy pants, cooler baths and avoiding the hot tub/sauna are all recommended for that problem...

  • I am extremely moody, for now I can blame it on pregnancy hormones, but between my first born and trying to concieve #2, I was diagnosed with bi-polar. Now I am not saying you have something as crazy as bi-polar, but for me my moods were all over the place. After trying many different medication combinations they finally got my straightend out, for that I am grateful! Now that I am pregnant again, I am no longer am taking my meds, but as it gets closer to the end of my pregnancy, I will be put back on my meds, so that I don't have to suffer through post-partum again!

  • I have my hormones checked once a year.. Its very easy, just blood work thats all. Try that and then you would know for sure.

  • No. But if you want another child why not lose the weight??
