I am 37 year woman, married for nearly 8 years now. I am overweight and have not yet conceived. I have visited several docs, but none with a satisfactory result. I have been told that my weight is the issue. I have tried everything to lose the weight, but nothing seems to help. Can you help me? Is it too late for me to think about a baby?

I have not done the tests in the recent past. My parents did not have diabetes. But my grandmothers from my mom and dad's side had diabetes.
