Exclamation TTC & Obese

Hello!

I joined this website for support, and having someone with my similar situation to talk to.

I am 23 yrs old, and extremely overweight. All of my life i've been obese. As i got older i also got heavier. My paternal family are all obese, which doesn't help me at all. I got married two years ago in Dominican Republic and moved to DR, weighing about 250, i stayed in that country for two years and i gain about hundred pounds. Now i am back in the US, my husband and i have been trying to get pregnant for the same amount of time we have been married two years, and nothing. My GYN assured me weight at the time about 340lb i could get pregnant, and i will get pregnant. I of course felt great hearing this, and having a GYN, so reassuring and positive. I know i need to lose weight, so i join weight watchers a month ago starting weight at 338 now a month later i'm at 333. I feel good about this and all.. My GYN referred me to a fertility specialist, which at the time i was excited because i thought my dream of become a mother would soon be reality. But when i got to the specialist he just laughed laughed and laughed, and told me my problem was that i was obese, and had to get surgery done in order to lose weight. Going to this so called specialist destroyed me. I felt horrible when this guy laughed at me for being obese, making fun of me for wanted to conceive. I still feel sad about it, kind of depressed because some how my hopes of becoming a parent are slowly disappearing after visiting this guy.

I look forward to hearing from anyone could who could relate or have advice, or any words of encouragement!

Thanks in advance,
Liah
