42 YEAR OLD PREGNANT AFTER ADOPTION AND FAILED FERTILITY TREATMENTS

Over the years, I've seen this scenario play out many times.  An infertile couple decides to discontinue fertility treatments and completes the adoption process (sometimes adopting two children over a number of years).  Then, out of nowhere, they get pregnant.  They're happy right?  Well, not always.  This can cause some mixed feelings.  Raising children is a very life consuming job...whether you've been infertile or not.  One of my daughter's friends has an adopted sister, but they are both the same age.  I've never wanted to pry, but this appears to be a couple who started the adoption process and then got pregnant.  
I think people don't always realize that fertility is a fleeting thing.  Sometimes, the orchestration of events that leads to pregnancy involves not only luck, but the right body chemistry that comes about in ways related to lifestyle, sleep, diet and so on. 
Here is the article about a 42 year old woman who gets pregnant by surprise:

I finally screw up the courage to see my gynecologist, a lovely, warm Italian woman, who saw me through the infertility treatments. She's ecstatic and can't contain herself: "This is a miracle! Let's drink champagne!"
I sob uncontrollably in her office, feeling guilty that I can't share even a tiny bit of her joy.
At times, I know what my doctor means. Miracle or not, there is a strong sense of fate here. And I don't want to mess with fate. I'm a religious person and believe that God has a plan, and it usually works out if we just ride with it. In rare moments I can imagine this will all be okay, that I'll be able to handle three children and even like it. But most of the time I want to scream, What kind of sick joke is God playing on me? I'm a weary mother of two with a high-pressure job and a house that's falling apart! I can't raise another child.
And what about my two gorgeous, hilarious girls, the lights of my life? Roma, who is 5, is just beginning to understand adoption and has heartbreaking talks with me. They go something like this:

"Mommy, I didn't grow in your belly, did I?"
"No, you didn't, sweetie."
"But I wish I had grown in your belly."
"I wish you had, too."
"How come I didn't grow in your belly?"
"Well, I guess God just didn't want it that way. Sometimes women can't grow babies in their tummies and so they adopt."
What do I tell her now? God changed his mind? (Evidently he did.)

WOMAN SHOCKED TO BE PREGNANT AT 45

 I love to share stories of surprise pregnancies over the age of 40, 45 and even 50!  Here is a story from an Irish news outlet about Author Kate Kerrigan and her surprise pregnancy at the age of 45.

SEE ALSO: WOMEN WHO HAD BABIES OVER THE AGE OF 50 NATURALLY (getpregnantover40.com)


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.
...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 my thick ankles. When it came up positive it was a shock.”
 “We are led to believe that when a woman is a certain age, she’s not going to get pregnant. But it’s just not true. There are times in your life when it suits you to have a baby in your twenties or thirties and there’s a time when it’s 40-plus.”

CAN I GET PREGNANT WITH HIGH FSH?

 What is FSH and why does it affect women's fertility?

Many women who have seen fertility specialist will have a number of blood tests done.  FSH is usually tested to find out how the ovaries are functioning.  FSH or Follicle Stimulating Hormone tends to rise as the ovaries are declining because the body is trying harder to stimulate them to produce and ripen the follicles.  Some fertility clinics will recommend donor eggs if a woman has high FSH because they feel that their success rates will be higher.  But, do women get pregnant with high FSH?  Yes, there is a documented case of a women getting pregnant with a FSH of 143 (doctors

WAS I LUCKY TO GET PREGNANT AT 44? ST PATRICK'S DAY!

Pregnancy Over 40, Not just luck

Was getting pregnant over 40 just the luck of the Irish? Well, not for me...I'm not in the least bit Irish.  But in honor of St. Patrick's Day, I thought I'd talk a little bit about luck.
I sometimes hear: "Boy you were lucky to have a baby at your age". Actually I agree to a point. If you think about all the things that have to come together to get pregnant and carry a baby to term, there's a bit of luck no matter what your age. Was it a surprise I got pregnant at the age of 44? Yes and no. Yes because I think everyone is surprised when they get pregnant and no because I didn't just get pregnant by accident. I followed a systematic method of preparing my body and mind - I knew deep down I would succeed.

As far as luck goes, the world seems to be divided into two types of people. The lucky and the unlucky. Well, I came to this realization long ago:

To a great degree: you make your own luck

I often say that when I got pregnant, it was a matter of preparedness meeting opportunity. Is that luck? Yes a little, but it never hurts to assess all the factors you can control and do everything in your power to tip the odds in your favor.

As reported in BBC News, Professor Richard Wiseman said:

My research eventually revealed that lucky people generate good fortune via four principles.

They are skilled at creating and noticing chance opportunities, make lucky decisions by listening to their intuition, create self-fulfilling prophesies via positive expectations, and adopt a resilient attitude that transforms bad luck into good.

DHEA, HOW IT HELPS OVULATION AND FERTILITY

DHEA is not to be confused with DHA which can also be important for fertility.  DHEA is talked about in the literature as a supplement to use to improve egg quality.   I did not know about DHEA when I was trying to conceive, but I thought it was worth mentioning it here since studies seem to support its effectiveness. It is a steroid hormone which is produced by your adrenal gland. It is usually at its highest around the age of 30 and declines as we get older. DHEA is a precursor to hormone production and is eventually converted to hormones like estrogen and testosterone. Around the age of menopause, women not only lack estrogens but also androgens. As reported by the National Institutes of Health on a study of women undergoing IVF: “Our results show that DHEA
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Fertility necklace with healing stones
supplementation improves the ovarian function in poor responders and in women over 40 years, suggesting that this molecule alone can raise fecundity and fertility treatment success in women with poor prognosis for pregnancy.” (1).

There are differing opinions about taking DHEA as a supplement.  First, you should check with your doctor and have hormonal levels checked.  DHEA can interact with some medications and it can raise hormone levels which can be problematic if you have had, or are at high risk for, some hormone dependent cancers. The women in the study (undergoing IVF) received three tablets daily of 25 mg micronized DHEA for at least 12 weeks before starting a long stimulation protocol for IVF.

WHY SODA POP IS BAD FOR FERTILITY

If You're Trying To Conceive Over 40, Watch Out for Soda

With all the beverage choices out there, I'm sure many of you will drink some soda along the way.
 Think twice about over indulging - according to this article, some sodas can cause some pretty adverse side effects including reduced fertility.   When I was trying to conceive I quit drinking soda and made my own carbonated tea.

After a few extreme soda binges—not too far from what many gamers regularly consume—a few patients have needed medical attention for skin lesions, memory loss and nerve disorders, all symptoms of overexposure to bromine. Other studies suggest that BVO could be building up in human tissues, just like other brominated compounds such as flame retardants. In mouse studies, big doses caused reproductive and behavioral problems...

...Brominated flame retardants lately are under intense scrutiny because research has shown that they are building up in people's bodies, including breast milk, around the world. Designed to slow the spread of flames, they are added to polystyrene foam cushions used in upholstered furniture and children's products, as well as plastics used in electronics. Research in animals as well as some human studies have found links to impaired neurological development, reduced fertility, early onset of puberty and altered thyroid hormones...

...a study confirmed that bromine was building up in humans. Researchers measured the serum levels of people in the United Kingdom—where BVO was in use—and in their counterparts in the Netherlands and Germany, where BVO was not used.

"During this time UK citizens had higher bromine serum levels compared to the inhabitants of Germany and the Netherlands," Vetter said. The largest amounts of lipid-bound bromine were found in tissues from children in the UK, according to the study.

PRAYERS FOR FERTILITY, PREGNANCY, MOTHERHOOD

I know many people use prayer instead of or with visualization and meditation.  If prayer is part of your daily ritual and religion is an important part of your life, by all means, make it part of your fertility routine.  Even though I said many prayers on the road to parenthood, I found visualization and meditation to be empowering as well (see my meditation page here).  Do both if you choose.

If you need some fertility prayers, here are a few from the Christian perspective.  I realize I have readers from all over the world with different religions, but these can be modified to fit your belief system:

FLAXSEEDS FOR FERTILITY AND HORMONES

Flax Seeds for Fertility and Conception

Flax seeds are a great hormone regulator and help with estrogen metabolism.  You should keep flax seeds either refrigerated or frozen because their natural oils can easily spoil. When I was trying to conceive, I would consume flax seeds in the form of flax meal (gound up).  Flax seeds contain something called lignans.  Lignans are phytoestrogens which, bind to estrogen receptors blocking the effects of the stronger more harmful estrogens.  Flax seeds are also a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids which help your body manufacture the “good” prostaglandins.   
Prostaglandins play a critical role in menstruation, conception, and pregnancy.  There are different types of prostaglandins, some are helpful and some are harmful.  Some prostaglandins assist the uterus and the fallopian tubes to contract which moves the egg to the portion of the tube where fertilization is most likely to occur.  Prostaglandins also surge at the end of a menstrual cycle causing

the corpus luteum of the ovary to shrink down which tells the body to start a new cycle.

If there is an overproduction of prostaglandins (with endometriosis, for example) and woman becomes pregnant or is pregnant, this could cause the uterine lining to shed ending in a miscarriage. Additionally, overproduction of prostaglandins could cause contractions so powerful that the egg moves too fast before conception can occur.

In terms of getting pregnant and staying pregnant, it is important to help your body manufacture and shift the balance to good prostaglandins by eating foods that create the building blocks for these substances. Specifically, you need to be consuming essential fatty acids since your body can’t manufacture these by itself.  Omega-3 fatty acids are particularly helpful.  The three main forms are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). EPA and DHA are considered long-chain forms of omega-3 and are found in fish, fish oil supplements, and algae extract. ALA, the short-chain form, is found in foods like flax seeds.
