"The Secret" and Infertility

What Is The Secret

Pregnancy Over 40, Help From The Secret

Well...everybody's talking about it. "The Secret" was the subject of a couple of Oprah's shows a few weeks ago and ever since the creators of the video have been hitting the talk show circuit.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com
 The Secret is about the "law of attraction" which basically is a law in the universe that says you control what you attract in your life by your thoughts and feelings.

So...can this help you have a baby?? By all means, yes! I learned about the law of attraction in the early 90's, and have been trying to apply it to all aspects of my life ever since. I have watched the video and I loved it. It really does a good job of explaining how what you are living now is the result of your past thoughts. When I decided I wanted to get pregnant...I thought about how I could attract a baby into my life. I knew I couldn't force a baby to come down and be with me...I knew I had to become a mother and create the right environment (within my body, within my mind, and all other aspects of my life) so a baby would feel welcome with me. This guided me to research natural methods of enhancing fertility and it guided me to think the right thoughts and do the right things to help my body conceive. Eventually, all this led to what I call in my book, "my pregnancy protocol".

I still try to live by the law of attraction...When I'm having a bad day, I always tell my husband, "I'm negatively attracting today"...then I need to go back and figure out why - or I just decide to change my mindset so I start positively attracting. I have always firmly believed that we aren't victims of anything...we create our reality (whether it's good or bad) and the good news is, we can change it.

The Problem With Donor Eggs....

Donor Eggs Over 40, Pregnancy Over 40

First, let me say that I personally know three women who had babies using donor eggs, and they collectively have five beautiful children.

However, using donor eggs is a big decision which requires much thought. I was given the option of using donor eggs when I went through fertility treatments, however, aside from the exorbitant cost of paying for the donor and all the associated expenses, I couldn't get used to the idea of having a third party involved.

Here are some things to think about when using donor eggs:

1. Many fertility clinics have age cut-offs for women in their 40's unless they're using donor eggs. If you have unexplained infertility in your 40's, donor eggs are probably going to work as well in a year or two from now as they will if you used them today (assuming you are in good health). TTC naturally may be worth a try first.

2. Before you embark on fertility treatment with donor eggs, you may want to think about what you are going to tell relatives and friends about your child. Your child may not want everyone knowing that they were conceived with a donor egg.

3. Is the donor going to remain anonymous? I know one couple who found their donor through an ad in the paper and they have a lengthy legal contract with the woman who donated the eggs. They all met and know each others names, etc.

4. What about the egg donor? Many of these women are young college-age students, who may be lured in with the money and they don't really understand the risks of taking fertility drugs...knowing what I know now about fertility drugs and the complications I suffered, I would never put myself through that for any amount of money. I wouldn't want to put anyone else through it either.

Donor eggs are becoming big business - here is an article that talks about some of the ethical issues:

Off Fertility Topic, But Worth Reading

I'm guessing that if you're reading this blog, you probably already have a life partner. But I wanted to pass along a book that I read a number of years ago before I was married. Please, let your single friends know about this one. The book is "Searching For Courtship" by Winnifred Cutler.

I really didn't want to get married when I was younger (and, of course, kids were out of the question), but as I got older, I realized life was going to be very lonely and empty without someone to share it with. But, when you give so much of your life to your job (as I did back then), it's hard to get out there and meet people. Even though I write and teach, I'm really quite shy socially. This book gives a step by step approach to meeting that someone special in your life. It also gives good advice on what to look for in a lifetime partner.

It was sheer luck that I happened to be off work one day when the author, Winifred Cutler, was on TV promoting her book. I immediately went out and bought a copy and I followed her methods. All of a sudden, my social life was booming and about three months later, I met the man I eventually married. All I can say is, I owe many years of happiness and maybe even my daughter to Ms. Cutler. Hopefully, someone else can benefit from this book as much as I did - so spread the word.
