Can't see why not.: I imagine you're concerned that your being overweight might be a problem. And you're right. But it probably won't prevent conception. It may make the pregnancy more difficult and may make it harder for you as a mother of a baby. It's very demanding and even if you're in good shape, it can be exhausting. So, if you can wait for awhile and shed some lbs - that'd be good. But you can try it. Best!
