Emily I would first go get a check up and make sure that it's safe to TTC. A lot of women don't realize it, but it's a great thing to do before you TTC to make sure that everything is good with your body. If I was you that is what I would do. GL!

Emily, I may not be allot of help being that I had allot of trouble ttc'ing myself, most women o around cd 14 but definitely not all, I don't o but maybe once a year and when I do it ranges from cd11-cd21, so if you can dtd from about cd8-cd22 every other day that would improve your chances, also stay away from caffeine, it lessons your fertility. I would go to the doctor to be checked also, sometimes plus size gals have pcos which compounds infertility, and they can do some simple tests to see if you have it, if you do most of the time it is treatable with metformin, and allot of women can then have allot of success once they get the hormones under control, I have pcos and take metformin. I am so sorry to hear about you having bp problems, I sometimes have problems with mine, have to wear the holster for 24 hours twice a year. I am sorry I could not be more helpful, good luck
