I have currently had two miscarriages the first I was 6 weeks 2 days and the last one was at 8 weeks. Between those time it took nearly a year to conceive. My last miscarriage was June this year. Both my partner and I have had test and the results are all okay. I've been trying ovulation kits by clearblue the dual indicator and they say I'm due to ovulate however i have not conceived yet. I'm 5ft3 and weigh 14st 12 I know I need to lose more weight.

I am sorry to hear that you have had 2 miscarriages.  It is difficult to know what exactly is the problem without further information.  However, your BMI is just over 35 and obesity has been shown to be associated miscarriage.  I would advise you to seek help in losing weight and have a consultation with a Fertility Doctor who will investigate and advise you on the best way to optimise your chances to conceive.
