45 YEAR OLD DELIVERS SURPRISE BABY WHILE ON SKI HOLIDAY

I thought I'd heard everything, but here's a particularly amazing story of a 45 year old French woman who was on a ski holiday in the Alps when she went into labor and delivered a baby before help could arrive.  She apparently didn't know she was pregnant which as crazy as it sounds can happen - especially to older women who don't think they can get pregnant at that age (not to mention that it was reported that she was on birth control).  Read more:

she rushed to the bathroom early on Tuesday morning because she was not feeling well. However she soon realized it wasn’t a case of stomach flu.
The mother from near Lille in northern France, was on birth control and says had no idea she was pregnant. Incredibly within 15 minutes of the first pain she had given birth to a healthy baby girl, French paper Dauphiné Liberé reported.
After a brief assessment the sister-in-law, a trained prenatal nurse, realized the pains were contractions and even spotted the tiny head of the child beginning to emerge from her mother. The sister delivered the baby before paramedics even had time to arrive.
It was a rare, but not unheard of case of a surprise baby. While the mother and her brand new 3.2 kilo daughter were being flown to the maternity ward in the nearby city of Albertville, a nurse reportedly told her it was the fourth case he’d personally been involved in.

DONOR EGGS CAN LEAD TO MORE COMPLICATIONS

Donor Eggs and More Complications

Many women over the age of 40 are pushed by fertility clinics to consider using donor eggs because the success rates are supposedly better.  However, not all women need donor eggs and there may be a good reason to think twice about using donor eggs.  A recent study in France found that the egg donation itself is responsible for pregnancy complications.  The risk of pre-eclampsia which can be life threatening to the mother and baby was significantly higher in women who underwent egg donation.  It is thought that there might be immune system reactions due to the genetic differences in the donated egg from the biological mother. The French study was presented at the annual meeting of the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology in Munich.

HOW THE UTERUS FACILITATES CONCEPTION

We all know that a fertilized egg needs to implant in the uterus and that the uterine lining needs to be thick and nourishing. However, according to this article, the uterus also engages in a series of contractions which helps sperm get where they need to go. Read more:


Babies are made when a mature egg pops off of the ovary and then slides into the fallopian tube. If the woman has had sex, the ovary might meet a sperm high up in the fallopian tube, and this might

seem like a passive process from the uterus's point of view.

From the article:
 

But Elad claims that the uterus actually plays a role in make sure sperm are in the right place at the right time. Apparently, uterine contractions squirt fluid, and sperm, upwards.

After conception, the uterus waits below, for about seven days, as the newly fertilized egg takes its own sweet time to float into the womb, and then the uterus goes into action again.

When the egg finally arrives, the uterus begins to contract again, performing a welcoming dance that sucks the new embryo into the soft lining of the uterine wall, and voila, we have a baby on the way.

HOW ARTIFICIAL LIGHT AFFECTS FERTILITY

Infertility and Artificial Light

Guest Post By Marie Zenack

Artificial light while sleeping appears to interfere with the production of
melatonin, which is a hormone associated with ovarian activity.
Research shows that women's cycles normalize when artificial light is
eliminated while sleeping. Eliminating the artificial light seems to allow
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Baby Hope Necklace and Fertility Jewelry Click Here
the hormonal system to reset itself, so to speak, and take a fresh start.
Couples who were thought to be infertile have been able to conceive by
eliminating artificial light while sleeping.

SEE ALSO: SHORT MENSTRUAL CYCLES AND FERTILITY (getpregnantover40.com) 

Many women find that menstrual cycles are easier and more
harmonious if they follow the cycles of the moon: menstruation on the
new moon, ovulation on the full moon. Because we are surrounded by
so much artificial light, even while sleeping, it can be a challenge to get
in tune with the moon's cycles. Women report being able to gradually
harmonize their cycles with the cycles of the moon by sleeping in total
darkness, except for one or two nights at the time of the full moon. If you
want to try sleeping in total darkness, make some dark shades for your
bedroom windows and make sure there is no light of any kind from your
clock radio, from under your door, etc.
If you want to try harmonizing your cycle with the moon's cycles, open
your shades for one night during the full moon, and sleep in the moon's
light. If this is not possible, get a nightlight and use it only during the
night of the full moon. You may have to continue this practice for some
months, so be patient. You may enjoy seeing your cycles gradually
respond to Grandmother Moon's light.

RELAX AND IT WILL HAPPEN?! PREGNANCY OVER 40

I wish I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say that! When I ran a support group for my local infertility organization, practically every woman in the group who got pregnant said that very thing.

Infertility chips away at your self esteem and it makes you believe that you're unworthy of the most basic of human needs. If you've been struggling with infertility for over a year (or two or three), you begin to believe that getting pregnant is this impossible dream - it's soooo way out there that you'll never achieve it. Well...it may be helpful for you to know that almost everyone in your situation has
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
Sacral Chakra Jewelry with Genuine Carnelian Stones
felt that way.

A couple of weeks before I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, I was ready to throw in the towel. I told everyone in the support group I was moving on to childfree, and my husband and I started making some real plans for the future. For the past six years our lives revolved around timing intercourse, taking pregnacy tests, having miscarriages (and sometimes surgery to remove them), and spending every waking moment wondering if I had done everything possible to conceive.


SEE ALSO: SURPRISE PREGNANCY AT 49 (getpregnantover40.com)



And then, just when I had made peace with my decision to move on to childfree, the "impossible" happened - I was pregnant. Why is life like that? Why did I have to get to the point of hopelessness before I suceeded? Well, my theory boils down to this: When you lower your resistance, you make room for success. So what does that mean? When you want something so bad, and it's not happening, you focus more on what you don't have instead of what you do have or what you want. You try to force things into place. When you finally give up, the flood gates open. Your dream starts chasing you instead of the other way around.

We've launched enough intentions to be busy for many lifetimes, but we just need open the pathway for them to come to fruition. We've all heard the old sayings, "Relax, it will happen" and "Let go and let God". All of these are different ways of saying the same thing. Know in your mind that good things will come to you. The fastest and most direct route to getting what you want is by bringing yourself to a positive point of attraction.

Staying in the mindset of why me? Why can't I get pregnant? Why can't I have a baby? This will only attract more of the same. Sometimes, letting go can feel so good...and guess what? Feeling good attracts the positive things to your life.

NOVELIST TALKS OF HER UNPLANNED PREGNANCY AT 46

Here is a very encouraging story of a woman who had the last of her four children at the age of 46.  In the article, she states that it was a natural conception and she talks about some of the comments she had to endure, not only from friends and acquaintances, but also medical professionals.  She even talks about how her doctor was sure she came in for a referral to terminate the pregnancy and even refused to send her for prenatal care until she had a chance to "reconsider".
Well, she did have a very successful pregnancy and a healthy happy daughter.  The midwife who

followed her pregnancy even told her that she had a sister who had a baby at 52!

And so the pregnancy continued and I began to enjoy it. I remember going shopping for maternity clothes with my 17-year-old daughter and watching with amusement as the shop assistant looked from one of us to the other, trying to discern who was pregnant.
I was amazed that so many people came up to me and, looking admiringly at my huge belly, asked if it was my first.
My little daughter, Edith, was born nearly two years ago now. And, rather than overburdened by late motherhood, I feel blessed and privileged to be her mother.
Having Edith has been rejuvenating. I particularly enjoy the frequent occasions when I am sitting next to a man at dinner and he asks whether I have any children. When I say yes, he inevitably asks how old they are. (No man would ever ask a woman her age but this is, of course, the nearest to doing that.)
I tell him I have a one-year-old daughter and watch while he does the mental arithmetic.
"Hmm, well she can't be more than..." Then I go on to say I also have a daughter of 19 and - unfailingly - he says: "Wow, you must have got started young." Feeling about ten years younger than I am, I nod and smile: "Oh yes, very young."

NATURAL WAYS TO IMPROVE CERVICAL MUCUS

I've heard and read many stories about how cervical mucus and its consistency is one of the critical pieces for conceiving on any given cycle.  As women get older, they may need to do more to help their bodies produce sperm friendly cervical mucus.  There are many simple things you can do that

almost seem "too easy" like drinking water.
It just makes sense that if you are dehydrated or underhydrated that your cervical mucus will be thick with less volume. When you have a cold or cough, one of the first things doctors will tell you to do is “drink plenty of fluids”. Why? Because it thins out your mucus so you can cough it up. The same thing holds true for cervical mucus, with proper hydration, the consistency will be thinner and you will have more of it. Sperm need “egg white” consistency cervical mucus.

"I feel very lucky," she told Who magazine, in its latest issue. 
"But I also feel all of my years and all of Steve's years of looking after ourselves and taking care of our health and our bodies, it just goes to show. For someone my age, for it to happen so quickly, it's obviously got to do with good health."

...Back in December, the TV personality opened up to The Australian Women’s Weekly about becoming a mother, saying, “I always hoped that, one day, I might be a mother.”
“It has always been at the back of my mind that perhaps it would happen."
But now, after welcoming the bub she deems to be “cute as a button”, the yummy mummy admits that it is “the best thing I’ve ever done.”
“I’ve got this mother instinct that people always talk about,” she gushed. “It’s quite fierce and protective.

ZINC: CRITICAL FOR MALE AND FEMALE FERTILITY

Infertility Or Fertility? Understanding the Crucial Role of ZINC In Reproduction

Guest Post By Uzo Onukwugha

Zinc may be classified as a trace element but it is a very important mineral in both male and female fertility enhancement. Zinc deficiency could lead to all kinds of infertility problems ranging from low sperm count in males to loss of pregnancy in females.
To understand the role of zinc in reproductive health in both sexes, lets examine the reproductive organs. In males, the prostate is the organ with the richest zinc supply while in the females, the uterus (the palace of the baby) is the zinc-richest organ. Developmentally what the uterus is in the female is equivalent to the prostate in the males. Although both organs may look different, they need the same nourishment--zinc--because they came from the same embryonic origin.
In women, lack or low zinc supply may lead to hormonal imbalance, irregular menses, lack of egg maturation or release from the ovaries. If the woman happens to conceive, zinc deficiency increases chances of spontaneous abortion, pregnancy-induced hypertension, and low-birth-weight babies.
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
See our complete line of fertility necklaces
Note that the woman doesn't lose only iron in her menses, but also magnesium and zinc.
In men, the reproductive organs like the prostate and testicles cannot function without zinc. The prostate will swell without adequate zinc supply. Zinc is critical for sperm production, and maturation. Zinc is also a heavy metal antagonism and can combat arterioslerosis as such necessary to cure erectile dysfunction in men. Zinc is the reason why semen is white. One ejaculate from a man leads to the loss of 15 Milligrams of zinc. Zinc is necessary for DNA regulation and repair, proper cell division, immune system modulation, growth, regeneration and repair. It is also an anti-oxidant protector that can combat the menace of free-radicals in the body.
In fact Zinc, is an important co-factor in well over 600 enzyme systems (including anti-oxidant enzymes like catalaze and superoxide dismutase) in the body. This ranges from metabolism of carbohydrates and vitamins to release energy. Zinc deficiency can cause loss of taste, loss of smell, poor wound healing and infertility.

SEE ALSO: FOODS FOR FERTILITY: COMPLETE SERIES (getpregnantover40.com) 

 

The problem is that zinc is notorious for poor absorption, therefore even mild zinc deficiency can lead to low sperm count, poor sperm quality and motility. Fortunately supplementation with 60 milligrams of zinc in 50 days can reverse all these semen parameters in infertile men. Zinc does all these by raising levels of testosterone (hormone that stimulate sperm production) which is also responsible for sexual libido in both sexes. This is why we must raise the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Zinc to at least 60 milligrams daily. The erroneous notion to supplement with copper with increased dose of zinc is a baseless fear that has no practical application.
Zinc with magnesium and vitamin B6 work in synergy to modulate and balance the body's delicate hormone cascade which is necessary for fertility and reproduction in both sexes.
Good sources of zinc include turkey, oysters, whole grains, eggs, bone meal, molasses, maple syrup, brewer's yeast, seeds like sesame, sunflower, and pumpkin seeds. Note that zinc supplementation is no longer and option but mandatory if you are already struggling with infertility.
Uzo Onukwugha comes back to discuss how ZINC can improve your reproductive health, balance sex hormones, tone the reproductive organs, stimulate ovulation, increase conception leading to birth of healthy babies.

SHE GOT PREGNANT BEFORE ME...

Pregnancy Over 40, Trying To Conceive Over 40 - Dealing With Others

If you're struggling with infertility, you know those awful feelings of being left behind when someone else announces their pregnancy.
 Even after my successful pregnancy, I still get slightly irritated with people who take their pregnancy for granted. I recall once, an extended family member who knew of my six year journey through infertility and miscarriage, announced her pregnancy at a family gathering. She went on to say: "it only took us two months to get pregnant!" I already had given birth to my daughter when this happened, but I still had a moment of rage pass through me - I had to refrain from saying something I would regret later. It seemed to me that the only reason she brought that up was because everyone knew it took me so long to have a baby.  There seemed to be an underlying jab there, but I'm sure I took it "the wrong way" because of my difficult history.

Even though I wholeheartedly recommend joining an infertility support group (especially since I
previously ran one), there is one part of it that can be difficult - when others get pregnant before you. Most people eventually succeed and many will succeed before you. Remember, this is not a race. Everyone's life has its own set of twists and turns. What comes easily for some doesn't come so easily for others. I'm sure other people look at you and envy some aspect of your life. Things will fall into place when the time is right. Just because someone else has a baby before you, it doesn't mean your chances are any less. By the way, my family member I mentioned above had numerous complications with her pregnancy, delivered prematurely, had a c-section, a difficult post-partum period, and her baby required quite a bit of extra care due to a chromosomal problem. I assure you, I take no pleasure in her struggles - I'm happy that she and her baby pulled through. But in retrospect, it just goes to show you that there's no reason to automatically assume that the first one who gets pregnant has some kind of charmed life. Stay the course and know that everything will work out for the best.
