Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Yes, there is a possibility that you may be pregnant. Some women get irregular periods and once reason can be because of their body condition so I suggest to check with your doctor.

you could be prego..being overweight doesnt make it impossible to get pregnant just more difficult ..but you might be prego..make a doc appt and take a test there..they may also take blood to check.

I am overweight -- Heavier than you but I am also 5'10.   And I am very pregnant.  I didnt have any problems getting pregnant -- I actually wasnt trying to get pregnant, either... but your size will not prevent you from conceiving!   As overweight women, we just have to be careful to montior our intake and gain less weight than the average pregant mother.  We are at more risk for gestational diabetes, larger size babies, and premature labor, but all of these things can be managed and monitored.  So...Congrats?  Maybe?

i have been large all my life and i have had nothing but problems getting pregnant, it still hasn't happened for me. but that doesn't mean you cant, several members of my family are bigger than me and have had healthy baby's. it all depends on your body. talk to a doctor. that is the best thing you can do. also just so you know with some body chemistry home urine test just don't work, my mom went in for surgery on a tumor until they found out it had a heart beat, and my sister was born 7 mouths later, and when my oldest sister was pregnant a urine test didn't work until she was 8 months along. best advice is get to a doctor. hope everything works out the way you want it to! good luck.

I am 5'1 and over weight also i have had very irregular periods all my life and was under the impression that it was harder for me to get pregnant due to the weight and  irregular periods.It is very possible to get pregnant im 39 weeks right now with our first child. u might not be producing enough of the hormone to read on a pee test. my advice go to clinic and get a blood test done.

being overweight wont stop you from getting prego...and irregular periods wont stop you either...my guess is wait a week take another test....i took one 3 times before i got a positive result...or go to your local crisis pregnancy clinic and have one done they generally get results faster than a home test
