TORI SPELLING: 5TH PREGNANCY AT 43 A "TOTAL SURPRISE"

This shouldn't come as a surprise because the unexpected rate of pregnancy over 40 is second only to
teenagers.  Many of you remember Tori Spelling from Beverly Hills 90210 and her reality shows.  But the actress has given birth to her fifth child recently and she revealed to the media  that it was a "total surprise".  It doesn't sound like she was one that struggled with infertility, but all that aside, she did get pregnant at the age of 43 without the help of fertility treatments.  I love to share these stories because it helps to reinforce what I write about all the time:  women can be quite fertile over the age of 40.  Pregnancy is possible, even when you least expect it!

ACUPUNCTURIST'S FOOD CHOICES FOR FERTILITY

Fertility Acupuncture: Foods for Fertility

Guest Post By John Z Wheeler

Acupuncture is now widely used to help with Infertility. Chinese Medicine also uses nutrition along with acupuncture to increase fertility. Here are a few tips to increase fertility:
Warm cooked foods are strongly recommended, especially root vegetables. Chicken soup with ginger is often recommended in China for women trying to conceive.
Add vegetables such as cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts and cauliflower. These foods contain di-indolymethane (DIM) which increases the metabolism of estradiol (a form of oestrogen) which will help the body use it more efficiently. In excess estradiol is associated with breast pain, weight gain, uterine cancer and moodiness with low libido. Adding DIM will counteract these effects.
Balancing blood sugar levels will help with hormonal regulation and energy levels. This involves reducing high carbohydrates, the foods which release glucose quickly into the body. These include white sugar, biscuits, cakes, sugary drinks, too much fruit, cereals, bread, pasta, caffeine and alcohol.
Try to:
Eat a warm breakfast within one hour of waking up. Preferably oats, quinoe and a boiled egg or two.
Have protein with every meal.
Do not skip meals.
Google GI Foods and choose foods with low GI index.
Eat more alkaline foods then acidic foods for a better pH balance for conception. Eat alkaline foods such as vegetables, sprouts, non citrus foods and cereal grasses such as wheat and barley grass. Acidic foods include meat and dairy products. Chewing food thoroughly will increase this through the alkalizing property of saliva. Do this instead of drinking anything at meal times. Avoid heavy meals late at night.
Always try to use organic plant sources, these are stronger in Qi and essence which is important in Chinese medicine for fertility.
Get plenty of essential fatty acids from unprocessed plant sources and deep sea fish.
These are essential for the health of our cells and are crucial in ovulation.
Good sources include:
Fish and fish oil.
Eggs.
Soy products.
Raw nuts and seeds.
Flaxseed and Pumpkin seed oils
Dark green vegetables.
It is essential to avoid junk food, do lots of healthy exercise like yoga or tai qi, long walks etc and more important then anything else... Relax.
Supplement your diet with natural, high-potency multivitamin and mineral complex with iron, folic acid and B vitamins.
The vitamins and minerals important for reproductive health (Vit A,C,E, B complex, zinc and selenium) enhance fertility yet are lacking in the usual western high processed diet. If these nutrients were adequately supplied through the diet, many fertility problems could be avoided. Other supplements to keep in mind are as follows:
Folic Acid - Extremely important and should be taken as soon as possible. The lack of folic acid can impair the early development of the nervous system of the foetus.
Bee pollen and/or royal jelly are regenerative and tonifying.
Blue-green algae i.e. chlorella and spirulina nourish the endocrine, nervous and immune system, regulate metabolism and repair tissue.
Wheatgrass is tonifying and enhances immunity and restores hormonal function.
Vitamin B6 recommended for hormonal function. Best to take complete B complex. (Viridian does a B6 complex which has all the B vitamins with a strong B6 content.
Co-enzyme Q-10 assists energy levels working on the cells powerhouse.
I would recommend starting with a mild detoxification programme for 7-10 days to improve your chances of fertility. This will help the liver in its function of filtering toxins.
Foods you can eat liberally:
Vegetables - eat a large variety of vegetables, especially:
Broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower as previously mentioned.

Garlic and onions (with detoxifying, sulphur-containing compounds)


Asparagus, avocado (containing detoxifying glutathione)

Green leafy vegetables, such as kale and cabbage (containing detoxifying B vitamins)

Artichoke and beetroot (both natural detoxifiers)

Carrots, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, spinach, celery, watercress and peas (all of which contain antioxidants

Herbs such as parsley and coriander.
Fruit - eat a large variety as possible, especially:
Apples, pears (core fruits which contain pectin)

Apricots, peaches, mangos, melons, papayas, pineapples, kiwi fruits, all berries (containing valuable antioxidants to support the liver

Lemons - use the juice for salad dressings

Pulses - peas, beans and lentils (for soluble fibre and protein)

Whole grains/cereal - whole grain rice and millet

Olive oil - for cooking and salad dressing
Drinks:
Fruit (except orange) and vegetable juices - try beetroot, celery, apple and carrot or apple, pear, carrot and ginger (highly recommended). Do not drink concentrated, make sure it is pure.

ELEPHANT SYMBOLISM FOR FERTILITY, FENG SHUI

Elephants are frequently seen as fertility symbols, especially in the art and science of Feng Shui.  Elephant is also considered as a sacred animal in Buddhist traditions. Buddha is often depicted riding an elephant. Legends say that Buddha’s mother dreamt about a white elephant and got pregnant after that.
It is recommended to place an elephant in the West or Northwest direction. You can also wear an elephant charm (see the fertility bracelet here) which can also promote fruitfulness in the wearer. It is also recommended to put one elephant inside the bedroom door and another outside the bedroom door to welcome your new baby into your life.

Elephants have been used perhaps the longest as a symbol of fertility. When pointed upwards, the truck is a symbol of good luck. The word for elephant in Chinese is written and pronounced the same as the Chinese word for “sign” or “things to come”, just like your baby that may be on the way!  For this reason, people frequent "pair" the elephant with other symbols to encourage what they want to attract into their life.

NATURALLY CONCEIVED TRIPLETS AFTER IVF

Conceiving naturally after IVF

I continually find stories like this one: women who conceive naturally after undergoing IVF (whether or not they got pregnant with IVF). This story is quite
interesting and unusual because not only did this woman get pregnant naturally, she got pregnant with triplets naturally.

SPICE GIRL HAS BABY AT 44, GERI HORNER

Of course you remember the Spice Girls!  Well, back in January, Geri Horner gave birth to a baby at the age of 44.  Was it a natural conception?  It doesn't really matter to me, but according to this article, she hinted that it was when she said, "God Bless Mother Nature".
There are many other celebrities who have had babies over 40, and I've devoted a page on my website

Geri announced in October that she was expecting a baby with husband Christian. The singer - who already has 10-year-old daughter Bluebell from a past relationship - delighted fans with the news on social media, making the surprise announcement with a meme, calling herself "Mama Spice".
Alongside a sketch of a pregnant woman, she borrowed a line from her single It's Raining Men to announce her happy news, and wrote: "God bless Mother Nature #MamaSpice."
The star's team said in a statement that the couple were "delighted" with the news.

WHICH YOGA POSES HELP FERTILITY?

Yoga Poses To Help You Get Pregnant Over 40

Even though we're a nation of couch potatoes, or perhaps more accurately, "office chair potatoes", for much of my adult life, I had the opposite problem. I worked out too much. I was an exercise fanatic - and the harder and more high impact the exercise was, the better.
When I went in for a few trial treatments of acupuncture, the acupuncturist told me that my body didn't have the "constitution" for heavy exercise. She said it was much harder to conceive when you're under so much physical stress.

"So what should I do"? I asked. She recommended yoga. After some research, I found that there are
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Click here for our complete line of Fertility Bracelets with healing stones
some yoga poses and postures that can directly benefit the reproductive system by opening up the pelvic region and the surrounding structures to increase pelvic circulation. Additionally, yoga can help with overall relaxation.

Here is a summary of some of the yoga poses which can benefit the reproductive system:

1. The Bridge Pose - the bridge stimulates abdominal organs and can relieve menstrual discomfort if done regularly. It calms the brain and can help with stress. Start by lying on the floor. Bend your knees, put your fee flat on the floor as close to your sit bones as possible. Bring your buttocks up until you form a bridge and bring your hands together clasped underneath you.
2. The Cobbler's Pose - this pose also stimulates abdominal organs, ovaries and is thought to be a natural remedy for infertility. Sit on the floor, bend your knees and let them lay out to the side. Bring your feet together and hold the toes or ankles with your hands.
3. The Lotus pose - this pose stimulates the pelvis, spine, abdomen and bladder. It can help ease the pain of childbirth if done throughout pregnancy. This pose starts by sitting cross legged on the floor. Slowly bring one foot on top of your thigh then the other foot on top of the other thigh. If this is painful, you may stay seated cross legged. Bring your thumb and middle fingers together and rest on your knees
4. The Reclining Hero pose - this pose probably needs to be done with support (a bolster pillow can be used along the length of your back). The reclining hero pose helps open up and stretch the abdomen and it can ease menstrual pain. This pose begins by kneeling then sitting down between your feet then slowly reclining down until you are laying on the floor. This is an intermediate pose and you may need additional support with a second pillow on your back until you become more experienced.

In my DVD, "Fertility Bodywork"(www.getpregnantover40.com) I demonstrate these yoga poses among others and I also have a segment on fertility pelvic massage, acupressure and reflexology and daily routines which help increase pelvic circulation and oxygenation.

FERTILITY GEMS FOR VALENTINES DAY

Trying To Get Pregnant?  Gems May Represent Fertility

Yes, Valentine's day is today. If you are trying to conceive, you might drop a few hints to your significant other about what to give you for Valentine's day.
 According to the article below, certain gems might help you get pregnant. Hey, it's all in fun, but you never know. Read more:

SEE ALSO: FERTILITY JEWELRY AND GEMS (getpregnantover40.com)

For pearls of wisdom, remember that the Pearl is a product of the oyster, and the oyster just happens to be nature's finest aphrodisiac. Pearls may range in color from white to black, but are commonly pale and shimmery. The magical properties of the pearl bring the wonderful gifts of peace of mind, focus, wisdom, patience, protection and love. And these are all properties that are important to the pearl's finest magic - fertility! Legend has it that pearls are so closely related to fertility because of the time and patience that it takes for one oyster to produce just one pearl, much like the time and patience it takes to create one beautiful baby.

Heart Chakra Bracelet With Rose Quartz for Valentine's Day

Or perhaps the choice is green. The green hues of the Emerald are symbolic of fertility, but this stone goes far beyond its color in its powers and properties to bring successful love, ensure domestic tranquility, stimulate the heart, arouse deep awareness, and bring good fortune and happiness. For what more could you ask in preparation for a baby?

And then there’s the Ruby. And rubies are not just for Tuesday! Red in color, the ruby is the gemstone of power and passion. Its properties range from stimulating love and emotions to promoting mental concentration. The ruby also protects the wearer against unhappiness, and is even reputed to prevent miscarriage. Good spirits are said to dwell in the stone, so to maintain the joy, passion and love at home, bring on the ruby.

You might want to consider Quartz, both clear and rose. As a wonderful touch of magic, if you hold clear quartz at your solar plexus and steady your breathing for several minutes, your body will relax, your mind will clear, your emotions will calm, and your energy will surge. Need we say more? And rose quartz, known as the love stone, stimulates both the heart and blood and consequently other organs as well. If that is not enough, rose quartz is also known to stimulate sexual energy and to enhance fertility. All of this power in such a little stone! So place one (or more) on the body part of your choice, near your body or bodies, in your bedroom, or anywhere that the two of you meet for delicious intimacy or passionate love-making.

..."At long last, in January 2011 we conceived our third child naturally. With our third child, we received some surprisingly kind and supportive comments.  I guess the novelty had worn off.
In November 2011 when I was 47, I went into labor on my due date.  Six hours later, after a very normal but fast labor, a healthy son was born.
While on the postpartum ward, I had the oddest experience:  there was a stream of nurses peaking into my hospital room.  After about the 8th one came in and then left again quickly, I listened at the door and heard them say: “She’s 47, can you believe it?”

REIKI FOR FERTILITY

Reiki Helps Women With Fertility Problems Achieve Their Pregnancy Goals

Guest Post By Dawn Fleming

Reiki, a Japanese energy modality, may seem difficult for the logical mind to understand, but that is because in the western world we tend to comprehend only what we can see. When we look at the human body we see the biological aspects of bones, skin, hair, etc., as well as the chemical components of blood and hormones.
Researchers have proven that we also embody an energy component. Energy exists within each cell and between each cell - our subtle matter. This energy when blocked or diminished, can cause many
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
physical issues in the body to include fertility problems.
In many areas of the world, medical treatments or health and wellness models include the integration of some type of energy medicine to treat the whole body. When one's energy is out of balance, the body is impacted in some way. Over time, an energy imbalance will manifest as some type of symptom or dis-ease in the body.

 

SEE ALSO: CHAKRAS FOR FERTILITY, SACRAL & HEART CHAKRAS (getpregnantover40.com) 

 

The longer a practitioner works with an energy modality, the more sensitive he or she becomes to what is or is not happening in a client's energy field. After writing an article on Reiki and fertility issues, I received a phone call from Karen* explaining the challenges she is facing with fertility and how the medical community is advising her to adopt or receive a donor egg. Something in her voice tells me that she knows she can become pregnant. We then discuss what Reiki can do to support her body, mind, and emotions, whether she is trying to get pregnant on her own or go through the in vitro fertilization process.
Our life history impacts and creates the energy dynamics that are occurring in our body. Positive behaviors like good eating habits, exercising, and increasing healthy self-esteem feed a positive energy flow in the body. Constant stress, lack of exercise, substance abuse and harboring a negative or fearful belief system cause blocks in the energy field that diminish flow to different areas of the body. The energy field might also be damaged from broken bones, falls, past surgeries, major illnesses, or long-term emotional or mental stress.
An energy practitioner must first assess what is or is not occurring in the client's entire energy field and then work toward repairing and restoring it. What we need to understand when seeking any energy modality for healing is that it took years or even decades to create the energy dynamic that is occurring in our body to support or obstruct our health and pregnancy goals. Restoring wellness using Reiki is a process.
During my first session with Karen, I explored where her energy was blocked or out of balance and began to restore her energy field. I noticed that the energy around her reproductive system was very low. The left ovary energy seemed too hot, and it felt as if the energy was isolated or not connected with the rest of the reproductive system. I observed that her field on the left in those areas was leaking energy so I started working to seal the energy leaks and saturate her field with Reiki. I also felt that her sinuses on the right side were troubling her.
All parts of our body serve a role in keeping us healthy. Our energy, when at its optimum, supports total health and well being. It provides the fuel for all of our body's systems and organs to work at full capacity. Without a full tank we may feel as if we are struggling on various levels; our body might not be able to perfectly perform in the way that the various components were meant to and our emotional or mental states may experience depression or feel overwhelmed.
Unlike the medical arena where doctors note measurements of hormone levels, follicle development, anatomic abnormalities and other patterns during the work-up of infertility, Reiki cannot label specific impairments in a woman's energy field because each person's energy dynamic is different. The common thread is that each woman's energy is diminished in some way, but the reason for the low energy levels differs for each one.
After finishing the energy field assessment, I then used Reiki to bring Karen's energetic body back into balance. It may take several sessions to restore a body's energy and to repair broken and depleted energy lines (chakras, meridians, nadis, hara line) that send the energy into different parts of the body. Fortunately, Reiki can energetically connect people at a distance and achieve the same amazing results whether they are apart or physically together in the same space.
Reiki can be used throughout a woman's cycle to support the growth of follicles and recruitment of healthy eggs, the fertilization of eggs and assisting the embryo to implant in the uterine lining. Reiki also provides emotional and mental balance helping the client to align with the process of fertility in a more positive way. It is very discouraging for a woman to be told by the medical community that she should give up when she is feeling empowered to manifest a family. The negativity permeates into her emotional and energetic fields, creating more blocks. Reiki supports her into a place of knowing that all will work out for the best and that all parts of her being are working toward creating the highest good for all. We are powerful manifestors, especially where our hearts dwell. Energy follows thought and is empowered by our feelings.
It is important for women with fertility issues to know that the process of receiving Reiki to restore the energy field should begin as soon as possible when you are considering conception by any means. This gives a woman's energy field time to be cleared, repaired and strengthened for your new cycle to begin. Reiki also helps with the lack of energy that a woman feels in the first and third trimesters of pregnancy, as well as providing excellent labor and delivery support.
A physician client who successfully used Reiki to become pregnant noted that although there are no scientific studies on Reiki in the treatment of fertility, infertility is a medical crisis for a couple, impacting every aspect of their lives and wellbeing. Taking exquisite care of each other and the relationship during this time is mandatory.
Diversifying your healing team, including yourself as a committed member, will make all the difference in how quickly you can achieve your goals. The Reiki that clients receive during this process not only supports the reproduction process but also helps to bring balance and peace in mind, body and life.

WOMEN OVER 40 FREQUENTLY GET PREGNANT UNEXPECTEDLY

I have done a number of posts about how women over the age of 40 become unexpectedly pregnant.  So much has been written about how hard it is to have a baby over 40 that perhaps the message has gone too far.  Although many women over 40 are trying to conceive, many women in this age range have already had their families and an unexpected pregnancy can be a life changing event and not in a good way.  Many of these pregnancies are terminated.
So my point in publishing this story is for those of you who want to conceive....you may be more
fertile than you think!  This article even mentions a woman over age 50 who got pregnant by surprise.  Read more:

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

SEE ALSO: TRUE STORIES OF SUPRISE PREGNANCY IN WOMEN OVER AGE 50 (getpregnantover40.com)



It happens. A recent survey of more than 3,000 mothers, by Netmums, found women over 40 have the same chance of conceiving within six months as younger women. Twice as many women over 40 have surprise pregnancies as women in their teens and 20s.
There are no Irish figures for how many women in their 40s, and older, become unexpectedly pregnant, but, across all ages, half of all pregnancies are unplanned, says spokesperson for the Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, Professor Fionnuala McAuliffe. She recalls a 50-year-old woman, whose youngest child was 22, getting pregnant unexpectedly.
“It was a pretty dramatic event,” she says.
In 2013, according to the CSO, 3,989 women aged 40 and over were registered as giving gave birth in Ireland. More than 900 of these women already had between three and 10 children (five had 10 children), suggesting many of these pregnancies were unplanned.
British Department of Health figures confirm that 256 women, aged 40 and over, from the Republic of Ireland, accessed abortion services in England and Wales last year.
The Irish Family Planning Association (IFPA) says these numbers are an underestimation — not all women resident in Ireland provide their Irish address, for reasons of confidentiality. And some Irish women give British addresses at which they aren’t resident, so as to obtain NHS-covered abortion care.

SUN, MOON, LIGHT, DARK AND FERTILITY

Pregnancy Over 40, Light, Dark, Sun and Moon

I've always believed that everything is connected in some way. We are connected to the earth, the sun, the moon and many other forces in the universe.  I've recently posted a number of articles about light, dark, melatonin, etc.

 See More Articles on Ovulation and Fertility at: www.getpregnantover40.com

Here is an article about how our cycles are affected by light (and dark) in synchronicity with the sun
and the moon.  With all of the artificial light we use and some of the crazy hours we keep, it's no wonder our bodies get out of synch with our natural circadian rhythms.  I always make it a point to get some sunshine every day and sleep in a totally dark room.  This article has some other recommendations:

http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htmImportance of Darkness and Full-moon Light
Many researchers believe that prior to the introduction of electricity into our homes, all women menstruated during the new moon and ovulated during the full moon. This has been proven by studying cultures today that do not use electricity. Women in these cultures sleep in close to total darkness except for the days surrounding the full moon.

The small amount of light from the full moon is enough to halt melatonin production long enough for ovulation to occur. Most women can synchronize with the cycles of the moon in about three to four months by altering the light level while they sleep. Coordinating menstruation not only strengthens your cycle in many ways but it also makes it much easier to pinpoint the optimal timing for intercourse.

Darkness also plays an important role in optimal fertility by triggering melatonin, on most dark nights, which leads to a good nights sleep. Just make sure to prevent overproduction with bright light in the morning.

Deep sleep helps restore and rejuvenate the reproductive system. Lack of sleep can increase cortisol levels, lead to an increased use of caffeine and other fertility reducing substances, disrupt your hormone balance, cause depression which in itself can affect fertility, or it can lead to relationship problems with your partner. In extreme cases sleep deprivation can stop ovulation altogether.

How to synchronize with nature

Get at least one hour of bright sunlight a day
Try to get bright light soon after waking
Use full spectrum indoor bulbs during the winter months
Use a light simulation device 15-30 min morning and night (particularly in winter)
Aim for total darkness at night. Use room darkening shades. Avoid all lights
On the three days of the full moon, try to bathe yourself in soft light while you sleep. A light from a closet, a 75-100 watt nightlight or even opening your blinds to the street light should do the trick.
Try to go to sleep with sun and get up with the sun. You might be surprised if you do not use lights or TV, how sleepy you get.
Make love during the full moon
Keep sleep and wake times consistent and avoid shift work. If you are tracking ovulation signs, then you should taking your basal body temperature at the same time every morning anyway

CAN SPECIAL GLASSES HELP YOU GET PREGNANT?

Glasses, Melatonin and Getting Pregnant

I thought I'd heard it all, but I found this article on how special glasses can actually help regulate our melatonin which can help with fertility. It's strange, but it makes sense.

Also visit: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on natural methods to enhance fertility 

There are other natural ways to stimulate melatonin production. It's usually recommended to sleep in a completely dark room. I should also mention,however, that melatonin supplements are NOT recommended when you are trying to conceive as they may have an adverse affect. Read more:



From the article:

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
"The timing of the birth of the young of most animals including humans is regulated to some extent by the duration of the flow of melatonin. Before electric lights the duration of the flow of melatonin gradually increased during the autumn as the nights grew longer. In most animals this signaled the period of greatest fertility so that young, conceived then, would be born in the spring. For humans, electric lights spelled the end of the natural effect of the length of day on fertility.

It was recently discovered that the flow of the hormone melatonin is controlled by the blue component
in white light. This means we can use the yellow and red light without interfering with the natural flow of melatonin. Wearing glasses that block the blue light creates an effect just like actual darkness as far as the production of melatonin is concerned. By putting on the glasses in the evening for a short time before bedtime can extend the flow by a short time. Putting them on a few minutes earlier each night will simulate the longer nights of autumn. While not yet established by clinical trials it is logical that this may help increase fertility. Getting back to the way nature intended isn’t going to do any harm and may help. The greatest number of births occurs in July. This suggests that November is the month of highest fertility.
