Thanks for writing to us.
A history of diabetes is not likely to cause any problem in fathering a child. Your body weight is also not likely to pose a problem as long as you are having normal regular periods. You should try to conceive during the fertile period during next few cycles.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
