I recall going through six years of trying to conceive. The holidays back then were just a way of marking time...another year - no baby.
 January was always such a relief because I could put all the holiday hoopla to rest. I wouldn't have to sit through tiring social get togethers for another year and I could get back into my comfortable routine.

Even though I went through six holiday seasons without a baby, somehow a new year always brought this is the year I'm going to have a baby. I often wondered if I was a glutton for punishment. What made me think the new year would be any different from all the rest? To make matters worse, one of the years I went through IVF, I got pregnant and found out I miscarried right before Christmas. There's nothing like having a miscarriage to put you in the holiday spirit. All sarcasm aside, somehow I kept on going. Even though my age, the statistics and my reproductive

new expectations:
history were against me, deep down I knew I couldn't quit.

 My baby was somewhere hovering over me and I knew my persistence would pay off. The moral of the story is that the new year can be different. There's something about putting your past behind you that opens up new possibilities. Instead of seeing the new year as a reminder that you're still not pregnant, see it as a new start. That was then and this is now. Stay away from the naysayers (for me it was the reproductive endocrinologists) - they may derail you from your goal. So when I say Happy New Year, I mean it. Past performance does not predict future results.

Trying To Get Pregnant Over 40 Can Be Psychologically Difficult

I hear from women all the time who aren't just dealing with the physiological aspects of infertility, they are dealing with the emotional aspects as well - there are so many feelings that erupt inside of you.

I guess that's a nice way of saying they're downright angry, enraged, fuming, you name it. Almost anything dealing with pregnancy, children, and of course trying to conceive is a landmine ready to explode. This anger affects their relationships with family and friends and can be very isolating (sometimes its just easier to avoid everyone). All this anger has other side effects too. That constant churning in the pit of your stomach or in the center of your chest can't be helping your body prepare for conception or pregnancy.

Infertility Leads To Anger and Jealousy

I don't know why drug addicts or teenagers who eat junk food, smoke and drink get pregnant time after time...I've often wondered why the "powers that be" thought them more worthy than so many and jealousy will only keep you or at the very least delay you from realizing your dream of having a child.  Everyone is on their own path in life and your job is to prepare your body and mind for a new life.

couples who have so much to give to a new baby. None of us will ever know why things like that happen...but one thing I do know is that holding on to anger

Try To Get The Anger of Not Being Able To Get Pregnant Out of Your System

Remember your goal here is to get pregnant, right? Think of a baby deciding whether or not to come to you as their mother. Would they want a calm peaceful loving environment or one filled with rage, envy, and ill will? Perhaps it's no coincidence that I got pregnant with my daughter right after I screamed and cried so loud that I'm surprised my neighbors didn't come over. I finally got all that built up rage out of my system - I'm convinced it made made my body more receptive because I got pregnant with my daughter right after that.  Maybe you do need to find a private place to let it all out.  Believe me, it feels good to release the tension and "not be strong" if even for a little while.

 Here's an article about changing your mindset to conceive

Trying To Conceive Over 40 and The Holidays

I posted this article last year, and I wanted to post it again during this holiday season. Even though trying to conceive unsuccessfully for many years isn't the least bit funny, the title of the article made
me laugh (Fa la la la la blah blah blah blah). Oh how I felt like a big Scrooge every Christmas (it seemed like every holiday season was right after a miscarriage or failed fertility treatment). Katie gives some good advice for dealing with the holidays:


From the article:

Fertility Symbol Necklace, free shipping, free charm
 My heavily Catholic mother was fond of saying how “funny” it
was that she never wanted any children and had six, and I wanted them but
couldn’t seem to have any. She often repeated that my childlessness was
probably God’s way of telling me I wouldn’t be a good mother.
I had a great aunt who was going deaf who would pat my stomach and
holler, “Is anyone in there yet?” And then there are the idiotic bosses who,
after a few drinks, tell you to lighten up and offer to pinch hit for your

husband, ha, ha, ha.

Help Your Self To Conceive Over 40 With The Color Orange

When I was trying to conceive, I remember reading that the color orange is associated with fertility.
Wouldn't you know it, all of a sudden, my wardrobe started taking on a orange hue, a color I never would have thought of wearing in the past.  Somewhere along the line, it must have enhanced my fertility as I got pregnant naturally. This explains the fertility chakra and its association with the color orange:
Orange vibrates with the sacral chakra.
It is the chakra associated with the ovaries in women and the testicles in men.  Therefore, this chakra is key for fertility. 

http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htmCarnelian is the stone associated with the Sacral  Chakra which controls women’s fertility.  Carnelian is said to improve blood flow and circulation which can be helpful in all aspects of health but particularly for the menstrual cycle and reproductive system.  It can also help with the absorption of nutrients and can help eliminate toxins from the body.  It is said to increase metabolism and energy.

Pregnancy Over 40, Trying To Conceive Over 40, Prayer May Help

As I've mentioned before, I have a diverse group of readers from all over the world who hold a whole host of religious beliefs.   So whatever your belief system, you may find this site helpful or at the very least interesting. I'll admit, I said many prayers on the road to parenthood but infertility and especially miscarriage can really test your faith. You never know, maybe all those prayers didn't necessarily cause a miracle, maybe they just helped me help myself.
See also: Infertility In the Bible (getpregnantover40.com) 

St. David's Infertility Prayer

Thank you, Lord, for all the blessings in my life. me to remember them as I face the challenges of infertility. I pray that I can surrender myself into your hands. Let me accept the reality of this situation and have the wisdom and courage to take action where I can. Strengthen my body, mind and spirit to endure the trials of infertility. Keep me ever mindful of the needs of others and grant us your peace. Amen.

Infection Could Be Cause Of Infertility

Click here for the
Saint Gerard Fertility Necklace
I have posted in the past, a couple of articles that may apply to many couples who are struggling with infertility.  I have now devoted a page on my website to infections that can harm your ability to get pregnant.
These articles bring up a very common but not well publicized cause of infertility: you may have an
underlying infection which can easily be treated. I'm not a big advocate of using or over-using antibiotics, but if you do have an infection, treating it could save you tens of thousands of dollars and the need to undergo risky assisted reproduction procedures.

I was surprised to read the huge percentage of infertile women who have these infections (a recent study that just hit the mass media was how many teenagers are now being diagnosed with STD's which could later harm their fertility). The possibility of infection should at least be something you talk with your doctor about. To my knowledge, I never had an infection in my reproductive system, but I was never tested either!

Supplements for Fertility

Guest Post By Yulia Berry
After years of doing your best not to get pregnant, suddenly you find yourself ready to have a baby. Ironically, it turns out that preventing it from happening turned out to be a lot easier than actually conceiving. When it comes to infertility, a lot of different factors can come into play including genetics, age, disease and even stress. However, one of the major contributing factors can be found in your diet and lifestyle. Just because you are know mentally ready to take on the diaper challenge, it does mean that your body is physically ready to either conceive or carry a child to term. But making the right diet and lifestyle changes, you can actually correct this problem and increase your fertility odds.
Where are some great supplements that couples can try to help conceive:
Essential Fatty Acids: Found in flax oil, cold water fish, sunflower seed, soybean, borage, walnut and safflower oil, EFA's can help your body effectively produce the prostaglandins needed to encourage proper hormonal balance. A stabilized hormone system is essential to ensure that your body is ready

for pregnancy
NAC (N-Acetyle Cysteine): This powerful antioxidant can help reduce testosterone and homocysteine levels in a woman's body, thereby increasing fertility. It is also great for general immune system and lung function.
Vitamin A: This is another beneficial antioxidant that can help with conception. It can help the body produce the right amounts of cervical mucus and protect male sperm from damaging effects of free radicals. Vitamin A deficiency is also shown to cause low sperm counts in men. The best natural sources for Beta Carotene are orange and yellow fruits and vegetables like, carrots, sweet potatoes, and cantaloupe. Other good sources are eggs, spinach and diary products
B Vitamins such as B6 and B12 can help keep woman's ovaries in good working order. Beans, nuts, eggs, meats, fish and whole grains are all great sources of B Vitamins.
d-Pinitol 600: This natural occurring compound has been found to be very beneficial for overall ovarian health. It is also shown to reduce insulin resistance: one of the leading causes of infertility
Chase Tree Extract:: This extract helps women maintain healthy levels of prolactin during monthly menstrual cycles. This can help trigger the production of progesterone which can help with ovulation and overall fertility
Vitamin C: Not only great for combating those nasty colds, this powerful antioxidant is also great for helping out with sperm motility. It is also great for enhancing the function of the thymus, neutralizing toxins and reducing stress (all factors in infertility). Great sources of C are citrus fruits, strawberries, watermelons, and peppers.
Vitamin E: Another powerful antioxidant that performs many roles including helping with fertility. It can help speed up the healing process and enhance thymus function. Avocados, Brussels sprouts, soy beans and unadulterated honey are all great natural sources of Vitamin E.
Coenzyme Q-10: This supplement can help improve overall cellular function and help maintain egg quality as you get older. It can also help repair cell damage caused by free radicals which can help increase the chances of implantation.

Fertility is not in your numbers

When I discontinued fertility treatments, it was such a relief to give up my dependence on doctors and lab values.  I absolutely did not want to have another lab test done.  Even when I knew I was pregnant with my daughter, I did not have an HcG test done (blood test), because I didn't want someone telling me that they weren't doubling etc.  As it turns out, this was my successful pregnancy.  Having labwork done would have done nothing for me.  Here is an article about how women should not put so much emphasis on their "numbers"


There is so much more to health and fertility than the
Fertile Turtle Bracelets, Click here
numbers: One of my greatest challenges as a Chinese
medical practitioner is getting patients to let go of the
numbers and listen to what their body is telling them.
When you follow your body’s wisdom instead of a book,
test, doctor’s order, or advise column you are much more
likely to be on the right track.
A woman in her 40s might listen to her body and say,
“well, I feel good, my energy is good, digestion is fine, I
sleep well, go on walks, have little to no PMS, and my
emotions are even.” With all this information, her age is
just a number and she can know she is fertile. On the
other hand, a woman in her 20s might listen to her body
and know she is very out of balance. She may feel anxious
and nauseated, tired all the time, irritable with PMS,
not sleep well, and have chronic migraines. Despite her
age she might know that she needs to do some work to
improve her fertility.
So, the next time you want to focus on just one number,
ask yourself, what does that number really mean to me?
Be honest with your emotions and express them. Check in
with yourself and see how you are feeling overall (does it
match the number or not?) Remind yourself that numbers
can be misleading, and know that numbers can change.
Then, take a step back, look at the big picture and let
those numbers go!

Crystals for Childbirth

Guest Post By Ron Windred
moonstone fertility necklace
See our moonstone necklaces
Crystals to help with Childbirth; assisting in a smooth, easy and quick labour:

The all time classic crystal for assisting with childbirth would have to be Moonstone. If you could only choose one crystal, Moonstone would be it. Moonstone is the Divine Feminine stone; it works with the moon and cycles, covers shifting energies from fertility to preparing the womb for conception, then to providing smooth process and easiness in pregnancy and childbirth and with breastfeeding. Moonstone also helps with fluid retention, which by the end of pregnancy can become an issue with some. It also helps deal with the feelings of vulnerability that can arise, as well as balancing your hormones and emotions.
There are several other crystals that can be helpful to you at this time.
Rose Quartz is the stone of unconditional love; its soothing energy provides emotional balance, security and peace. It allows you to truly embrace unreserved love and the magic of childbirth, allowing you to connect deeply with yourself, your baby and the whole universe.
Azurite clears stress and worry, and encourages the development of the embryo in the womb.
Unakite is a good crystal for healthy pregnancies and to facilitate health of the unborn child.
In late pregnancy some people find insomnia all too much. Crystals like Amethyst, Moonstone, Nephrite Jade and Howlite are quite beneficial at this time and after the birth.
Malachite eases the birthing process and is also a very protective stone that can provide security during pregnancy and childbirth.
Moss Agate is good for childbirth as it helps with a good delivery and eases the process.
Jade is also good for childbirth as it's a very nurturing stone.
Peridot is an excellent facilitator of the birthing process.
Bloodstone and Carnelian are also good for childbirth and they will keep you well and grounded also.
Larimar helps to retune your innate femininity and restore your connection to nature. It is a superb stone for mothers during and after pregnancy. It can alleviate post-partum depression and relax the stress associated with new parenthood.
Agate encourages regeneration and growth. It heals and protects the uterus, guards from prolapse of the uterus and encourages normal shrinkage of the uterus after childbirth.
Dealing with pain of delivery can be a problem and relief and support can be provided by Amber, Emerald, Hematite, Lapis Lazuli, Moonstone and Moss Agate.
The most important crystal to help you in the process is the one you are most attracted to or perhaps your favourite stone, and if it is one of the above, then so much the better.
Just keep the selected stone or stones with you, maybe in a pouch that you can keep close-by. It would be good if you could hold onto these during the delivery.
It would also be good if you are able to create a small layout or grid using the above set under your bed during pregnancy and later put under the delivery bed or table if you're able to. Simply place the stones in a circle with either a Moonstone or a Rose Quartz in the middle, or place them according to
Fertility Pregnancy Necklace, Moonstone, Rose Quartz
Rose Quartz, Moonstone, Fertility Pregnancy Necklace
your intuition. A circle was chosen because it represents the unbroken, loving energy, or the circle of life. What better way to bring a new soul into this life.
What I would suggest is to set the grid under the bed or mattress so the crystals are out of harm's way. This is also the best place to keep a constant energy flow throughout the labour itself and so as not to not disturb the layout.

10 Characteristics of Women's Energy Bodies

Guest Post By Lisa Erickson
Spiritual and energy anatomy traditions including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Tibetan Tantric Buddhism, kundalini yoga, wicca, Kabbalah and more describe differences between the way women's and men's energy, or subtle, bodies function. If you are familiar with the chakras or meridians, you already know what 'energy body' means. If not, then just think of your subtle body like a field of energy that encompasses and interacts with your physical body. Understanding how your energy body works can help you to improve your health, intuition, personal power, and spiritual growth.
The following list is compiled from a variety of traditions, and not all of them may resonate with you. But read through them, and try experimenting with those that seem most true to you.
1) Women's Energy is Centripetal, Men's is Centrifugal

The idea here is that by default women's energy circles inward, and is therefore attractive, drawing things towards it, while by default men's energy cycles outwards, projecting rather than attracting. Both men and women can control and reverse this with their intent (conscious or unconscious) but by default women's energy is centripetal and men's is centrifugal. This especially comes into play with sexual energy, and the different ways the two sexes try and attract sexual partners. It also comes into play in families, with the women in any familial group said to be the energetic 'organizing principle', because of this centripetal quality.
2) Women's Energy Bodies are More Sensitive/Absorbant, Men's are More Solid/Protective

Women's energy bodies are also generally said to be more sensitive to external energies, and more likely to absorb these energies, rather than repel them. This has pros and cons, as external energy can serve as the 'raw data' for intuition, but absorbing too much energy, or the wrong kind, can deplete or disperse a women's energy field more quickly in certain situations, for example, in a large crowd.
3) Women's Energy is More Fluid, Men's More Fixed

Related to the idea that women's energy bodies are more receptive is the idea that they are more fluid - that they change more rapidly and more often than men's, in response to the environment and other people. In nature, this can mean that women merge energetically with their environment more readily and quickly, and the same thing in a group of people (so obviously this also has pros and cons, depending on what you are merging with.)

SEE ALSO: CHAKRAS FOR FERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com) 


4) Women's Energy Bodies are More Expansive

Also along these lines is the idea that women can expand their energy fields to encompass others around them more readily (think Bella as a vampire in the Twilight series if you have read it.) Personally, I am not so sure on this one, apart from a mother's energetic relationship with her children (which I'll get to in a minute), as I have seen more men with powerful protective abilities in this regard, perhaps because I have known many martial artists. The centrifugal nature of men's energy seems to actually make their energy fields more readily expandable, in this sense, to me.
5) Women's Energy Bodies are Fertile Ground for Energy Lines

This one is a touchy one. The idea with this one is that in interactions with others, and especially in close relationships, women become the anchor line energetically for both parties. In sexual terms, some traditions teach that a woman actually gets an energy line 'planted' in her energy body with every sexual encounter, that can take years to cut if she wishes to do so (and that this is not the case, or at least less so, for men.) But it's not just sexual energy lines, it's really in all kinds of relationships - the idea is that women naturally harbor these lines. And that this can become especially problematic for us if we are 'anchoring' too many people for us to handle.
6) Maternal Energy Lines are Distinct, and Progress Through Time

This one concerns the energy line between mother and child. The idea is that the first 3-6 months after birth, a child really is an extension of his or her mother energetically - their energy fields are merged. Gradually over time this energy connection separates, and the child becomes a distinct energetic being, although a unique energy line remains between them for life. The energy line between father and child, or other relatives, is established through other means, through emotional bonding and history, rather than through this intrinsic energetic line.
7) A Women's Energy Body is Cyclical

There are lots of variations on this one, but the primary one is that the nature of a women's energy body shifts over the course of her menstrual cycle. Her energy body is 'more' of all the things listed above - centripetal, sensitive, fluid, etc. in the days leading up to menstruation, and especially right before and during, and then is a little less so in the days leading up to ovulation. So her energy body is always waxing and waning (moon cycle and all that!) in this way.
8 ) Women's Energy Bodies Have Distinct Life Phases

Tied to this is the idea that women's energy bodies go through very distinct shifts corresponding to the major reproductive-related physical changes they experience during their lifetime: The onset of menstruation, sexual maturity, pregnancy, nursing, perimenopause, and menopause. This has implications for both their energy health and spiritual path at each point along the way.
9) The 2nd, or Sacral, Chakra Plays a Unique Role in Women

Because of #s 6 - 8, the chakra or energy center related to women's reproductive system, the 2nd or

sacral chakra, plays a unique role in their personal power and energy health. Just as women and men are each at risk for different physical illnesses because of their physical and hormonal differences, they are at risk for different energetic issues as well. And in the case of the 2nd chakra, this means that any damage or blocks related to it are particularly damaging to women. And conversely, that a healthy sacral chakra has even more benefits.
10) A Women's Sacral Chakra is a Unique Spiritual Doorway

This comes up in some form in all the 'sacred feminine' traditions, even in those that don't define chakras per se. The idea is that the 2nd chakra (or corresponding area in other systems) in women can function like a portal, a doorway to other dimensions and to spiritual insight, in a way that in mainstream teachings usually only the third eye and crown chakra are said to.
Working with your energy body in a conscious way can open up new doorways for you in many areas of your life.

I said many prayers on my journey to have a child.  I grew up Catholic and I can't say I've stuck with any religion as I have gotten older, but there certainly is some comfort in knowing that I can always fall back on some religious teachings.
The concept of angels has always been very intriguing to me.  So what are angels?  In the Christian sense, angels are messengers.  According to CBN,
Angels are spiritual beings created by God to serve Him. They are very powerful beings who function as God's messengers. Many times in the Bible they appeared to people and said, "I have come as a messenger from the Lord."


 SEE ALSO, SAINT GERARD FOR FERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com)

The New Testament tells us they are also ministering spirits sent to look after human beings who are the heirs of salvation (see Hebrews 1:14). Jesus seemed to indicate that little children have angels assigned to them, for He said their angels always behold the face of God (see Matthew 18:10). So the concept of guardian angels has its basis in the Bible.

So how do you pray to angels?  Here is a prayer for conception:

Please shine your positive energy
upon my body so that I may

You fill my heart with hope and we

to accept that everything will work out
for the best in its own time.
Please dispel our fears and anxieties so
that we may make a happy home for
our future children.

As this article mentions, getting pregnant over the age of 40 is not a medical miracle.  It happens all the time.  If you look back at your grandparents generation, before the days of birth control, many women had babies in their 40's.  The only difference is that it was their last child rather than their first.  Read more:


Author Kate Kerrigan had her second son when she was 45, eight years after she gave birth to her first son. “I had my first child when I was 37 and I was very much thinking this was the last gas station before the desert. I was in my mid-30s before I met a man willing to marry me. By that time I was in a panic to get pregnant. I had a lot of anxiety about leaving it too late.

“We had Leo when I was 37 and we were thrilled and started immediately to try again but we had no luck and I thought well, we'll just leave it at one. When I was 45, I got pregnant again. I thought I was menopausal and had gained a little weight. I did the test as a dare because my friend mentioned
Kokopelli Fertility Bracelet
my thick ankles. When it came up positive it was a shock.”

People’s attitudes were surprising, says Kate. “People kept telling me how great I was — aren’t you great! — as if this was some kind of marathon achievement or as if I was a medical freak. I was much clearer about what I wanted, I had so much more confidence and I knew what I wanted for my birth plan.
“I was very worried at 45 [though]. I felt the pressure society puts on us. I thought there’ll probably be complications.
“But my GP was great. She said you don’t drink or smoke, you look after yourself so I’m not worried.”

Love Your Liver For a Natural Fertility Boost

Guest Post By Gabriela Rosa

Optimum natural fertility depends upon excellent general health, which can only be attained when our body's metabolic processes are nourished and well balanced. This is where the liver comes in.
The liver is one of the most important organs in the body because it governs approximately 500 metabolic processes to ensure optimum health and fertility. These are categorized into nine main ones and include: Carbohydrate metabolism--assisting to maintain blood sugar levels; fat metabolism and cholesterol balance; protein metabolism including disposing of and re-making blood as well as other body building blocks; storage of blood; bile salts production to assist digestion; storage of vitamins (A, D, E, K, B, C) and minerals (iron, potassium, copper, zinc); production of heat, breakdown and elimination of hormones essential for hormonal balance and detoxification.
The liver is the largest human internal organ and one of the few capable of natural regeneration--as little as 25% of remaining liver can regenerate into a whole liver again. Ensuring the liver has what is required for optimum function is essential for peak general health and fertility.
The way of ensuring optimum liver function is the same (of course) as the approach used to help couples overcome infertility to have a healthy baby, it includes a low toxin lifestyle: a healthy, clean diet; no coffee or alcohol consumption; avoidance of chemicals, recreational substances, smoking and
any other things which have been shown to negatively affect general heath as well as adding in other things which can be beneficial--such as the recipe I share with you below.
The Whole Lemon Drink is a recipe that was shared with me by my esteemed colleague and author, Peter De Ruyter. I have used it for various areas of health with excellent results (including and not limited only to digestion and digestive system function).
It's simple and it tastes great. For improved health, fertility and digestion, all you have to do is drink it twice daily. The other great thing about this natural health and fertility boost is that it is completely
Click here for our complete selection of fertility bracelets
safe during the pre-conception period. In addition, whether you are pregnant or trying to conceive naturally, or via assisted methods such as IUI, IVF, ICSI--you can continue this healthy ritual.
The Whole Lemon Drink is ideal for:
- Assisting with hormonal balance

- Detoxification

- Enhanced immune function

- Liver health

- Nourishing and strengthening cells and cell membranes

- Improving and normalising digestive health
Some of the benefits of the Whole Lemon Drink (observed in over 20 years of clinical practice):
- It decreases blood acidity and alkalises the system--despite lemon juice being acidic;

- The oils provide essential fatty acids that boost immune function, benefit cell integrity, and improve skin health (resolving dryness), etc;

- The D-limonene in the lemon peel has anti-cancer properties;

- The pectin in the lemon helps to emulsify oils and chelate toxins from the bowel

- Lemon peel contains oligomeric proanthocyanidins (OPCs)--powerful antioxidants with antihistamine effects;

- Lecithin acts on healing and detoxifying the liver (it's wonderful to address fatty liver) and nervous system (peripheral neuropathy) as well as the kidneys and brain, and enhances fat absorption;

- Lecithin helps normalise cholesterol and triglycerides;

- The choline in the lecithin and the oils in the citrus skin glands help liver detoxification pathways to work more effectively;

- The drink helps decrease swollen glands, increases energy, as well as lift depression and anxiety;

- It helps with insomnia and increases the appetite (only when it is poor);

- It assists in weight normalisation;

- It frequently raises CD4 cell counts (fighting cells of the immune system);

- It helps to decrease tumour necrosis factor (TNF), inflammation and wasting.
One amazing brew - cheap, simple, safe, and effective!

- 1 whole organic lemon, well scrubbed to remove any wax or residues

- 1/2 cup filtered water

- 1-3 dessertspoons cold-pressed organic flaxseed oil or preferably liquid fish oil

- 1 heaped dessertspoon lecithin (egg based if possible)

- 1 capsule of vitamin E (whole into the blender)

- 1 knob of fresh ginger (approximately golf ball size)
Cut lemon into small pieces, combine all ingredients and blend for 30-45 seconds. Strain and discard the pulp. Consume 1/2 of the liquid before or with breakfast and the rest for dinner. Store the remainder in a clean glass container* in the fridge. Always consume the total amount within 24 hours to prevent rancidity and too much oxidation.
*Ideally the glass container should be as full of the drink as possible to decrease the amount of air, which speeds up oxidation.

If you're feeling a bit bogged down after eating so much over the holiday, you might want to try spirulina as a meal substitute.  If you're anything like me, holidays are a time to indulge in tasty treats and foods that you don't normally eat.  So how can this green superfood help?  Spirulina is a natural algae and it is easy to find to incorporate into your diet..  It can benefit fertility in many ways:


  • Spirulina is a protein rich food which is needed for hormone production and high egg quality
  • Spirulina is high in the beneficial omega 3's which not only help with hormone production, but

Does Soy Help Or Hurt Fertility?

It seems that lately there's been a Soy "backlash". First you hear how good it is for overall health and fertility, then all of a sudden it's bad. I did make Soy part of my diet while I was trying to conceive, and I can tell you from experience, it didn't hurt my fertility. Besides, think of all of the Asian cultures where soy is a staple in their diet...they certainly don't seem to be underpopulated! One argument that critics of soy make is that Asian cultures eat fermented soy like tofu which is healthier.

Most Americans are consuming unfermented soy which is supposedly worse than the fermented variety. Unfermented soy has phytates which may interfere with nutrient absorption. Some of the most popular unfermented soy products are soymilk, tofu, soy nuts and soy meat alternatives. Fermented soy includes miso, soy sauce, tempeh, and natto.

In general, women could benefit from eating more fruits and vegetables. If you're concerned about Soy, eat it in moderation. It's a great source of vegetable protein and there's so many different ways to
get it in your diet.  Protein is a necessary component of hormone production.
Here is an article that I've published before and it addresses soy and fertility:

Our results suggest that a high-soy diet probably won't compromise fertility in women," says researcher Jay Kaplan, PhD, of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center, in a news release. The results of the study were presented today at the annual meeting of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

Pregnant Naturally at 50

Getting pregnant naturally at or over the age of 40 doesn't surprise most people, but what about getting naturally at 50?

Yes, it happens...I myself had a surprise pregnancy at the age of 49  but I miscarried click here for more on my surprise pregnancy at 49 -getpregnantover40.com). My point here is that it does happen - sometimes when you least expect it. Here is one woman's story:

This baby was a complete surprise. I'd tried to have another baby after my son was born when I was 41, but after four miscarriages I finally gave up hope that I would have another child. My periods stopped abruptly when I moved to the East Coast to take a new teaching job, and I accepted the fact that I had started menopause.

My husband, John, and I were in New York for a weekend workshop when I noticed that my breasts had started swelling and felt tender. "Maybe I'm pregnant," I quipped to John, not really believing it. Then I squeezed a nipple and got a little milky fluid. "Oops! This doesn't feel like menopause!" I said.

I felt very ambivalent about being pregnant again. If the pregnancy continues, I thought, fine; I'll have another baby. If it doesn't, that's fine, too, because I can pursue my new career. After four miscarriages, I was afraid to get very excited. I didn't want to be disappointed again.

I felt a little embarrassed going to the doctor and admitting I was pregnant at my age. Then I asked the important question: "Given my history of miscarriage, do you think I can carry this baby to term?" The doctor was matter-of-fact: "I don't see why not." I asked her about checking my progesterone level to make sure it was high enough to maintain the pregnancy during the first trimester. She didn't seem very concerned. However, I was; so every time I felt a twinge that resembled a cramp, I rubbed natural progesterone cream on my belly. I have no idea if it helped prevent an early miscarriage, but it did ease my mind somewhat.

Infertility:  I Can't Have A Baby, Don't Say It!

Did you ever notice that somehow people seem to live up to their "labels"? I recall back when I was in elementary school, the kids that were labeled "difficult" or "troublemakers" seemed to live up to their reputations. It's almost like they couldn't break free from it.
 See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for trying to conceive with vision boards
 So what does this have to do with getting pregnant? Well...if you're having trouble conceiving, labeling yourself "infertile" may actually make you infertile. Who knows how our brains latch on to things...I know, for me, whenever I know I can do something, I do it. When I think or "know" I can't
Sacral Chakra Necklace, Love Dream Trust Hope
do something, I can't.

Years ago, when I was engaged to be married, people asked me if we were going to have kids, and I would laugh and say "oh I'm probably infertile....haha". I wonder how much that was a self fufilling prophecy? I never wanted kids when I was younger. As a matter of fact, when I went to my 20 year high school reunion, people would say to me, "you always said you didn't want kids, and here you are, 20 years later, you were true to your word". Little did they know that I was trying to get pregnant at the time. I didn't share that with anyone because it was so out of character for me to want kids!

The moral of the story is, if you've been trying to get pregnant for a while (perhaps a year or longer) try labeling yourself "a future mom". It may change what you manifest in your life.

Here is an article about the power of our words and their connection to what we bring into our life:

Another very important aspect of conscious language is the LAW OF FOCUS. What ever we place our attention on is what we create. It's important to focus on the positive thing we desire rather than the negative thing we want to avoid. For example, never focus on NOT AGING. Focusing on not aging ensures that you will age and quickly. Instead focus on being healthy, vibrant, and youthful.

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-jewelry-fertility-gemsThe Kokopelli symbol originated from the Native American culture. It has the flute player with feathers on his head. This is a well known and well accepted symbol for fertility. Kokopelli is thought to carry an unborn babies on his back and gives them to women. Like many fertility symbols, Kokopelli also represents fertility in terms of agriculture. His flute is thought to chase away winter and bring in the warmer weather of spring.  He has the power to grow things... not just in agriculture, but human life as well.  This is why he is considered an aid to women trying to conceive.  Kokopelli is thought to be fun loving, music making and a bit of a trickster....sounds like the true spirit of a child which you want to
bring into your life!

Kokopelli is thought to bring good luck It is believed that his good luck powers came from his power
to create life.  Unmarried women who don't want children are supposed to avoid him. It is said that you should be careful if you sleep at some campgrounds near ancient carvings of Kokopelli because wives and daughters can wind up pregnant if you're not careful!

Kokopelli is so widely accepted as a fertility symbol that one of the major fertility associations had a gala event called the "Kokopelli Ball".  This event honored those professionals, individuals and organizations that further the field of infertility research and treatment.

Pregnancy Over 40, Fertility Over 40, How Acupressure Can Help

I've written before about how acupressure points throughout your body can enhance ovulation and fertility. I did an entire video on acupressure, reflexology and fertility yoga called:, "Fertility Bodywork" (www.getpregnantover40.com), I show how you can perform acupressure (and reflexology)on yourself if you don't want to seek the services of an outside professional.  
Picture:  www.acupressure.com
Here is a site that explains acupressure and acupuncture:

What is Acupressure?

Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to gradually press key healing points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. Acupressure was developed in Asia over 5,000 years ago. Using the power and sensitivity of the hand, Acupressure Therapy is effective in the relief of stress-related ailments, and is ideal for self-treatment and preventive health care for boosting the immune system. Acupressure releases tension, increases circulation, reduces pain, and develops spirituality and vibrant health. 

Acupuncture & Acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but Acupuncture employs needles, while Acupressure uses gentle to firm finger pressure. When these acupressure points are stimulated, they release muscular tension, promote circulation of blood, and enhance the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupressure therapy can be used to relieve pain, fortify the sexual reproductive system, detoxify the body for greater health and beauty, and tone facial and back muscles.

Traditional Chinese Medicine Helps Women Get Pregnant

I'm always finding success stories about women over 40 who use alternative treatments or traditional chinese medicine to get pregnant. Although I didn't use these methods to conceive my daughter, I certainly think they are a good option for some couples.  I did, however, work on increasing pelvic circulation as I show in my DVD on Fertility Bodywork (www.getpregnantover40.com).
Read more about  Dr Xiao-Ping Zhai:

The first – and as yet only – woman Zhai sent over to the London Fertility Centre successfully conceived on her second try – at the age of 43. Amanda (not her real name) married when she was 40 and started trying immediately with no success. Her baby is due on 1 January next year and she is over the moon.

Acupuncture for fertility (getpregnantover40.com)
"I'm now 44," she says. "I'd had three IUIs and IVF before going to Zhai, and my consultant told me to give up because I was just too old and my eggs were too weak. I saw Zhai throughout 2008 and then we did one IUI in the LFC and I got pregnant but miscarried. The second time, in April, it worked. I was 43. I still can't believe it. It can only be because of her – not only did she improve my egg quality, but the IUI at the LFC, with her in charge, was completely different to any other clinic, where you are aware that, really, you have people around you thinking you're past it and should have a donor egg."

Watching a Zhai consultation is bizarre. She will check the tongue, the pulse, sleep patterns, whether a patient is thirsty, peeing a lot and their bowel movements. Often changes are made to the diet – no sugar, coffee, alcohol, dairy, wheat, spicy foods – and every month a woman is asked to keep a temperature chart.
Slowly, through the use of herbs and acupuncture, Zhai begins to regulate the vital energy, or Qi, that flows through the body. According to this ancient practice, good health and metabolism depend on Qi. As it flows, it provides warmth and distributes body fluids.
Each organ has its own pattern of Qi and each organ is represented on the tongue, which presents Zhai with a kind of map of the body's health. If one organ is not functioning properly, it affects the rest of the body: "It only takes one thing to be wrong to throw the whole system out," she explains.
Common diagnoses seem to be too much liver heat and blood stagnation, damp-heat obstruction in the abdomen, slow blood circulation to the ovaries – you get the picture.
Zhai says she can start seeing changes within three months but will not put a time frame on treatment: "Every woman is different."
The herbs she uses are mostly shipped in from China and made up to her prescriptions, although she is currently looking at manufacturing them in the UK. They include carthamus flower (huang hua) for regulating the flow of Qi to alleviate pain, glossy privet fruit (nu zhen zi) for nourishing the kidney and liver, as well as peach kernel, angelica root and codonopsis root.

Trying To Conceive Over 40, Women and Men Should Avoid Too Much Sugar

Where do we begin....sugar is bad on so many levels.
 It has been blamed for everything from the obesity epidemic, and from my standpoint it harms fertility in both women and men.  In women, the insulin resistance can disrupt hormones, and in men, according to this article it can harm semen.  It is unclear whether its the sugar itself that causes problems or if it is the after effects of the sugar that is the culprit (i.e. high blood sugar, obesity, diabetes, etc.) Read more:


The body also turns surplus sugar into fat and stores it around the vital organs, placing us at risk of liver and heart disease.
Some experts now believe excess sugar is behind the UK’s enormous rise in obesity.

There are also fears that high sugar diets and the spikes of insulin they trigger may fuel the growth of cancerous tumours, while other research has found that sugar may coat semen and damage male fertility.

You are in charge of your fertility, not the doctors!

 It seems after the "Secret" came out some years back that everyone is talking about the law of attraction...how you manifest in your life what you focus on.  If you label yourself "infertile", guess what? You are going to attract infertility into your life.  This is something that I realized when I was trying to conceive...I needed to refocus my thoughts on how I was going to have a baby and seeing myself pregnant and having a child.  Prior to that, my focus was on how hard it was to get pregnant
and how I was struggling with "infertility".  It's a small shift, but it makes a huge difference.  I also "gave responsibility for my fertility" to the doctors when I started fertility treatments (which all failed and left me with only one fallopian tube after IVF left me with an ectopic pregnancy.

Even if you did not grow up Catholic, you may still find some comfort in prayer to saints who are
associated with certain causes and conditions.  One of these is Saint Rita. 

Among the other areas, Rita is well-known as a patron of desperate, seemingly impossible causes and situations. This is because she has been involved in so many stages of life – wife, mother, widow, and nun.  Those who are trying to conceive or experiencing miscarriage may truly feel that getting pregnant and having a heathly pregnancy is truly an impossible cause.  But, sometimes the things that
we think are out of our reach can come easily.  I have done many blog posts on women who went through fertility treatments only to fail time and time again.  Then, miraculously, they get pregnancy by surprise.

My ever expanding jewelry line just wasn't complete without a Saint Rita Necklace.  Click the picture below for more information.

I love publishing stories of surprise pregnancies in women who are supposedly too old to get pregnant.  Here is a story of one women who was already a grandmother and out of nowhere finds out she is pregnant.  She wasn't necessarily happy about it and even considered termination as many older women do when they find themselves unexpectedly pregnant.  However, she did have a healthy happy baby who is now the light of her life.  Read more:



In truth being mistaken for Lily’s grandmother is my greatest dread so I’m doing everything in my power to make sure it doesn’t happen.
When I go out with her I always straighten my hair and put on a bit of eye make-up.
However feeling self-conscious about my age is a small price to pay for the joy Lily brings me.
It made me so sad to read recently that the abortion rate among women over 35 is rising, possibly because women stop using contraception as they think they’re too old to conceive.
I didn’t plan to have a baby at 47 but Lily is the light of my life.

Getting Pregnant Spontaneously After Fertility Treatments

I found an interesting article while reading the BBC news. This particular article is a number of years old, however it's still an interesting story. Apparently, a woman underwent IVF and only wanted two embryos transferred. As it turned out, three were transferred and she had triplets.

See My story about having a baby at 44 without IVF: www.getpregnantover40.com

 She and her husband subsequently sued the clinic because of the financial hardship this put on the
Fertility Symbol Necklace with healing stones
couple. Who would have ever predicted this one? I'm sure those of us who struggle with infertility have a hard time relating to this, but it does raise some questions about all of the things that can go wrong with assisted reproduction. 

Another reason I wanted to post this article is because the woman in the story, after having triplets with IVF (and after receiving a financial settlement from the clinic for transferring three embryos) became pregnant naturally with a fourth child! It just goes to show you, the natural route may deserve a chance - just think of all of the stress and turmoil this couple could have avoided.
