Overweight pregnancy difficult?

Hi
i would like some advise. i am 36 and quite a bit overweight, but am dieting, but as you know, better not to do a crash diet - therefore it is taking long. I have heard that apparently it is more difficult to fall pregnant when you are overweight, is this true? And if so, why? Cause surely if you ovulate, it should be fine. Some advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Sonka

Many overweight women do not ovulate. If you are ovulating, you should be able to fall pregnant.
