UNBELIEVABLE! 56 YEAR OLD PREGNANT NATURALLY

I always share these stories when I find them...here's another women over the age of 50 (56 to be exact) who was enjoying her life with her kids and grandkids when she unexpectedly became pregnant.  What's even more surprising is that she was told she could be carrying twins.  This is probably another case of high FSH causing more than one egg to ovulate.
This article was from 2014, and I cannot find any updates to see how her pregnancy progressed or if she was in fact carry twins, but it certainly is encouraging that even a 56 year old can get pregnant naturally. Read more:

“I told my doctor I was concerned because I was putting on a little weight,” Sallie recalls. “He said he would have to do a pregnancy test, because he didn’t want to give me any new medications if I was pregnant.”
Sallie rolled her eyes, but reluctantly agreed to do as her doctor had asked. A few minutes later, he returned with the stunning news.
“I liked to fainted right there in the doctor’s office,” Sallie says. “I was so overwhelmed. I said, ‘Me? Pregnant?’ I couldn’t believe it — it really threw me for a loop.”
Then came the news that Sallie could be carrying twins. She says she weighed about 170 pounds before getting pregnant, but her weight had increased to nearly 210 pounds earlier this month.
Reaction from family, friends and co-workers has been predictable. Charles had a hard time convincing his co-workers at Flowers Baking Co. in Jamestown that his wife had, well, a bun in the oven.
“They didn’t believe me,” he says. “They said, ‘Get out of here, Brown! You’re too old! You ain’t having no kid!'”

CATHOLIC VIEW OF INFERTILITY AND TREATMENTS

Having A Baby and Trying To Conceive From The Catholic Standpoint

When I ran an infertility support group, I recall some group members questioning how fertility treatments fit in with their religious beliefs.
Here is an article from the Catholic perspective about how fertility treatments are viewed by the
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Saint Gerard for Fertility and Pregnancy Necklace click here
church:

For people of faith and goodwill, Christian or not, there are also moral qualms and questions. Is it right to manipulate Mother Nature? Are we playing God? Just because advanced medical technology can do something, does that automatically translate into obligation? Surely there are limits that define the humane and ethical use of medical science and technology.

SEE ALSO: INFERTILITY IN THE BIBLE (getpregnantover40.com)

For Catholics there are also more specific, Church-related questions. Are these procedures morally acceptable according to Church teaching? Have the pope and bishops or some council or official Church body spoken on these matters? Some Catholics, familiar with the Church’s strong defense of procreation as one of the core meanings of marital lovemaking, tend to assume that the Church must be in favor of any and all medical aids to achieve conception and the birth of a child. Not so. The Catholic viewpoint is at the same time more compassionate and more complex than a simple yea or nay.

FLAXSEEDS: SUPERFOOD FOR FERTILITY

When I was trying to conceive, I immediately added ground flaxseeds (or "flax meal") to my diet.  I had read an article written by a dietician who gave all of the benefits of flaxseeds - not only for fertility but for overall health.  I actually just ground them myself in a coffee bean grinder (an old wedding gift I finally found a use for!)  I would just take a couple of tablespoons every day.  Some people add them to their food, but it was just easier for me to take them right from the spoon and wash them down with water.  They actually have a nice nutty taste, so they're great to throw in a salad.  But I would definitely grind them up because they can be hard to digest and they may go through your system whole and you won't get the benefit of the essential fatty acids.  Also, keep them refrigerated.  Be sure to buy them fresh and refrigerated as well because the oils inside can easily spoil.  Here is an article about the benefit of flaxseeds for reproductive hormones:

1) Lignans

Flaxseeds contain a series of chemicals called lignans, which have a phytoestrogenic effect. Phytoestrogens, or “plant-estrogens” are very weak hormone analogues that talk to the body’s hormone receptors and modulate their actions. In other words, it can help lower the estrogenic effect when you have too much or raise it when you have too little.

2) Sex Hormone Binding Globulin

http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Kokopelli Fertility Bracelet click here
Our bodies produce a protein in our blood called Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, or SHBG. SHBG has an affinity for testosterone and estrogen – two hormones which are commonly elevated in women with hormone conditions such as PCOS or painful periods. When SHBG binds a hormone, it renders the hormone inactive, but hormone imbalance often lowers SHBG levels. A study showed the flaxseed consumption raised SHBG when it needed to be increased, and minimized the detrimental effects of excess estrogen and testosterone.

3) Regularity

The primary route of excretion of excess hormones is through the bowels. Being regular is essential to hormonal health – you need to go to the washroom at least once per day. Flaxseed is a source of fibre that gels up in the digestive tract and helps to move things along the intestines. Not only does this make flax a great option for hormones, but it also helps rid the body of excess cholesterol as well.

XENOESTROGENS, HOW THEY DISRUPT REPRODUCTIVE HORMONES

Fertility and Hormone Regulation - Avoid Xenoestrogens

I have heard about xenoestrogens for many years and I talk about them in my book on how to overcome estrogen dominance.
For more on natural ways to regulate hormones, visit:  www.getpregnantover40.com
 This article discusses what things to do and avoid. I should mention, I don't agree with everything in this article (for instance, it says to avoid flax seeds, which were part of may pregnancy protocol), but it still as a lot of good information. Read more:

Did you know that synthetic estrogen and progestins are found in the urine of millions of women who take either birth control pill or hormone replacement therapy and flushed them down the toilet ending up in rivers and lakes where your drinking water comes from? Water treatment involves adding chemicals like chlorine (also a hormonal disruptor) to kill E-coli bacteria, but nothing is done to remove harmful chemicals from your drinking water! Once your body becomes contaminated with toxic chemical, it stores it in the fatty tissue.

Natural estrogen is responsible in stimulating cell division in hormone responsive tissue like the uterus lining, breast tissue and the ovaries. When xenoestrogen is overloading your body, it mimics the action of natural estrogen and stimulates tissue growth causing ovarian cysts, endometriosis, fibrocystic breast disease, and even cancer. When a women is said to suffer from estrogen dominance, it refers to the high level of estrogen over progesterone. That is why women who experience infertility are advised to detoxify before conception. Xenoestrogen can also cause miscarriages and luteal phase defect. It may be present in breast milk and cross the placenta during gestation and become especially harmful to the foetus during the development of the sexual organs.

WOMAN 44, MAN 56 HAVE BABY OUT OF NOWHERE!

Surprise Pregnancies In Women and Couples Over 40 Surprisingly Common

Unintended pregnancies in women over 40 is quite high...people just think their infertile over the age of 40 and they're not.   As a matter of fact, surprise pregnancies in women over 40 is second only to teenagers!
See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for many more articles on women getting pregnant naturally over 40 and after failed fertility treatments
The couple mentioned below (man 56, woman 44) get pregnant "out of nowhere". Just another example of an older couple who beat the odds. Read more:

Man, aged 56 and diagnosed as infertile, meets woman, 44. Birth control isn't part of their whirlwind romance – and they get pregnant before you can say “oopsy baby.” Inconceivable, right?

Well, not quite. That's how a baby girl was born to Laura Arpiainen, a Vancouver architect, now 46, and her partner, an interior designer. Their 14-month-old daughter was a “gift out of nowhere,” Ms. Arpiainen says...

...The truth is, almost 40 per cent of pregnancies in women over 40 are unintended, according to the Guttmacher Institute, a New York-based non-profit research centre that tracks reproductive trends.

Despite their years of experience with the birds and the bees, women at this stage of life may play Russian roulette with birth control, doctors say.

“Some women over 40 can get sort of sloppy [with contraception] because they don't think they can get pregnant,” says Wendy Wolfman, an obstetrician-gynecologist at Mount Sinai Hospital and an associate professor at the University of Toronto.

A SPERM ALLERGY MAY PREVENT CONCEPTION

Pregnancy Over 40, Sperm Allergies May Interfere

Most of us probably think of allergies as hay fever, food sensitivities and the like.
 But as the article explains below, you may have sperm allergies which may be sabatoging your efforts to conceive. Read more:

"Antisperm antibodies may be a complicating factor in as much as 5 to 10 percent of infertility cases," says Dr. Witkin. He adds that almost all men who have undergone a vasectomy (surgical operation that causes sterility) produce antisperm antibodies after the procedure. If he undergoes a vasectomy reversal, the antisperm antibodies will interfere with conception.
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Kokopelli Fertility Bacelet with Moonstone and Rose Quartz

See Also: Chicken Pox and Fertility In Men (www.getpregnantover40.com

So what causes the immune system to make antisperm antibodies? A genital tract infection, a congenital abnormality in the male genital tract, a vasectomy (as mentioned above) or a varicocoele (a varicose vein in the testicles) can cause these antibodies to develop. Wives of men with abnormal sperm are also at increased risk for developing antisperm antibodies.

Testing 1, 2, 3
When a couple experiences unexplained infertility, their doctor may recommend testing for antisperm antibodies. For males, a semen analysis can detect motionless or clumped sperm and identify the need for additional testing. Females undergo a post-coital test, in which a fluid sample is obtained from the cervix six to 12 hours after intercourse. The sample is then analyzed for the presence of shaking sperm. "In some cases, however, these tests may be normal, and antisperm antibodies may still be present," says Dr. Witkin.

A definitive diagnosis is reached after a couple undergoes a sperm antibody test. Dr. Witkin recommends the immunobead binding test (IBT) or the Mixed Agglutination Reaction (MAR) test. The IBT assesses the presence of antisperm antibodies in semen, cervical mucous or the blood of either person. The MAR is performed on a semen sample. "There are other tests available but they are non-specific and inaccurate," he says. "In my office we perform the immunobead binding test."

CUPPING: A FORM OF ACUPRESSURE TO ENHANCE FERTILITY

Pregnancy Over 40 Help From Cupping Therapy

I have heard of cupping from a number of sources (including my grandmother who used to use it for belly aches!).  Cupping is somewhat like acupuncture and it is supposed to help with circulation and lymphatic flow.

See also www.getpregnantover40.com for  my Fertility Bodywork Video which includes acupressure which you can perform on yourself

This site talks about some celebrities who have used it and it also gives reasons why some don't beleive in it:

From the site:
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Fertility and Pregnancy Necklaces including
this featured Stork Necklace with Rose Quartz
Dating back 5,000 years, the therapy is a form of acupuncture, and is based on the idea that suction from the cups draws the skin up and mobilises blood and energy around the body. 
‘If someone is under stress, or they’ve suffered a physical trauma like a pulled shoulder, the energy in their body can become stagnated,’ explains Ian Stones, an acupuncturist in Farnham, Surrey, and member of the British Acupuncture Council, who has been practising cupping for six years

Typically, a flame is first placed inside a glass or rubber cup, so the heat can create a partial vacuum, before the flame is removed and the cup held to the skin for about three minutes.
Although the resulting marks can look alarming, they are temporary, and this kind of cupping should not hurt in any way as the cups used are thick-rimmed and do not heat up.

47 YEAR OLD TALKS OF HER UNEXPECTED PREGNANCY

I love sharing success stories of women who get pregnant naturally in their 40's and even 50's.  Here
is a story of a woman who already had grandchildren and found herself unexpectedly pregnant in her upper 40's.  Sometimes, when you're not planning it, pregnancy can be met with feelings of anxiety and many older women choose to terminate their pregnancies (the unexpected rate of pregnancy over 40 is second only to teenagers).  But, the woman in this story did have her baby and enjoyed every minute.  Read more:

When the test flashed up a blue line showing it was positive I was so stunned I burst into tears.
Allan was characteristically laidback saying we could talk about it in the morning.
The next day as I booked an appointment with my GP I clung to the hope that the test was wrong.


It wasn’t and my doctor cheerfully booked me in for a scan.

I knew there were risks to being a “geriatric mother” – how I was classed by doctors at the age of 46.
I was told there was a one-in-20 chance of my baby having abnormalities but hearing all the scare stories made my bond with the baby growing inside me stronger.
I felt so protective of my bump and clung fiercely to positivity and hope.
There were advantages too to being an older expectant mother.
First time round in my late teens I’d been naive...

...She was perfect and being a mum to a newborn again was like riding a bike.
Two decades had passed but I hadn’t forgotten how to do the night feeds or change nappies.
It was exhausting, yes, but it would have been whether I was 17 or 47.
This time I knew how precious every second with my baby was.

INOSITOL, B VITAMIN THAT CAN HELP YOU GET PREGNANT

Getting Pregnant With The Help Of Inositol

I've been hearing more and more about inositol for female fertility. Inositol or sometimes called myo-inositol can help with insulin resistance and it is one of the B vitamins. It can help with ovulatory disorders and help women who have stopped getting their periods as a result. Here is an

excerpt from a study done on women who took myo-inositol

 "the number of mature oocytes was significantly increased in the myo-inositol group compared to D-chiro-inositol. Concurrently, the number of immature oocytes decreased in myo-inositol treated patients. Furthermore, the myo-inositol-treated group showed an increase in the mean number of top quality embryos and in the total number of pregnancies compared to the D-chiro-inositol-treated group.

BEE POLLEN GREAT IF YOU WANT TO CONCEIVE

Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly From Our AffiliatesI've been hearing about bee pollen for years.  Even when I was in college, long before I was trying to conceive, I had heard about how many athletes take bee pollen because of its nutritional benefits.  If you are trying to conceive, these products can enhance fertility in both men and women. For women, they may help regulate cycles, improve egg quality and even help with PMS. In men, they can improve sperm quality and output and reduce infammation of the prostate. For women and couples experiencing miscarriage, bee propolis (the substance used by bees to seal up small openings in their hives made from sap and other substances) can help with antibodies that attack a developing fetus (similar to an allergic response). Bee propolis can help with sperm antibodies in women (which can attack sperm. Men can also have auto-immune reactions to their own sperm. Many supplements contain all of these bee products.

WHAT ARE CASTOR OIL PACKS, HOW CAN THEY HELP FERTILITY?

Most of us have heard of Castor Oil, and believe me, it's usually not something most people would willingly take! So what is it? There is actually a Castor Oil Plant. The seeds are taken from the plant and the oil is extracted from the seeds. Castor oil has many uses in foods and other products. It is also

used as a laxative which is probably why most people feel like the product has an image problem!
However, did you know that you can use Castor Oil externally? Castor Oil, when placed on the abdomen is thought to stimulate circulation of the reproductive system and to stimulate the lymphatic system. It can reduce inflammation and it can help detoxify by stimulating liver function naturally.
You can buy Castor Oil Packs pre-made, but why not make your own? This video which is also on my website explains more:

CHEMICALS WOMEN WEAR IN MAKE-UP ALTER HORMONES

Chemicals In Cosmetics May Alter Hormones

One of the things I talk about in my book is how women should avoid some of the hormone altering substances in make-up, lotion, etc.
This article  gives some examples of things to avoid and it also has a link to the cosmetic database. Read more:

The 515 Chemicals Women Wear

From the article:

When shopping, there are a few key ingredients to be avoid. However, due to lax regulation, you may find them in products marked “organic” and “all-natural,” so be on the lookout. Choose from the many nail polishes that have been reformulated to remove a common “toxic trio:” Dibutyl phthalate, a reproductive toxin; toluene, which affects the nervous system and may cause headaches; and formaldehyde, which can cause allergies and irritation. Stay away from sodium lauryl and laureth

sulfate, which are spopular in cleaning products, such as body washes, as they can cause skin irritation.

Triclosan and triclocarban, which pop up in antibacterial hand soap, can damage both the thyroid and the environment. Instead, use plain soap. If you wash for 20 seconds, you’ll be just as germ-free.

Finally, stay away from parabens, common in shampoos, lotions and shaving gels. These preservatives have been so widely and publicly exposed as toxic contaminants that it is now relatively easy to find clearly-marked parabens-free products. Brown also counsels cutting out fragrance completely, since the term “fragrance” is poorly defined and could contain any number of mysterious and unhealthy synthetic compounds.

HOW LIGHT AND DARK AFFECT OVULATION AND FERTILE DAYS

Ovulation Light and Dark

I have done numerous posts on how light (and dark) affect fertility. Here is another article which addresses the affects of light on both women and men and cites a study where women actually slept next to a light bulb for part of their cycle to get it regulated.
See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on ovulation and fertility 
 I don't want to compare women with chickens, but I have heard that farmers that raise chickens put them on an artificial light/dark cycle to get them to lay eggs on schedule.  It's possible that humans may function the same way!

From the article:
To keep functioning as it should, the master clock needs to re-sync itself all the time using a very simple signal: a period of bright light followed by a period of darkness, i.e., day and night. That light-dark signal reaches the master clock in the brain via the ocular nerve, which relays the signal to the brain’s pineal gland. A century ago, before the widespread use of artificial lights, the pineal gland

(which produces the hormone melatonin) had no problem obtaining the feedback it so desperately seeks. Today it’s not that easy. But once you understand how your body responds to light, you can take steps to make sure that you get the light you need to keep your reproductive system functioning like clockwork.

Light and the Menstrual Cycle
The study of circadian (24-hour) rhythms is still a relatively new science, so it’s not surprising that the research demonstrating a link between light and fertility is still fairly new as well. What makes it so exciting is that it’s a multidisciplinary effort, with contributions coming from experts in gynecology, physics, biology, nursing, astrophysics, psychiatry, and andrology, among others.

Women’s menstrual cycles follow an approximately 28-day pattern based on the 29-day cycle of the moon. The moon’s light ebbs and flows over the course of the 29 days, with the days surrounding a full moon being the brightest. Back in the 1960s and 1970s, researchers started to focus on using light exposure that mimicked moonlight as a means of regulating the menstrual cycle.

Then in 1990, Psychiatry Research published a study (“Night Light Alters Menstrual Cycles”) reporting that women with long and irregular menstrual cycles who slept with a 100-watt bulb beside them from days 13 to 17 of their cycles succeeded in regulating and shortening those cycles from a mean of 45.7 days to 33.1 days.

COLD MEDICINES, CONCEPTION AND PREGNANCY

Trying To Get Pregnant, Some Cold Medicines May Reduce Fertility

Since we're in the middle of the cold and flu season, and most people reading this blog are trying to conceive, I thought this article might be helpful.
See:  www.getpregnantover40.com for more on conceiving over 40 and avoiding pregnancy complications
 Some medications can hurt your chances of conception and most shouldn't be taken if you're already pregnant. Read more:

Colds and Conception
Nothing to Sneeze About

From the article:

Are cold medications safe for the baby you may be carrying, and if you're not already pregnant, could these medications reduce your chances?

In terms of fertility, your answer is fairly simple. According to Dr. R. Don Gambrell, an OB/GYN and a clinical professor at the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, very few over-the-counter medications have been shown to reduce fertility. Ibuprofen, naproxen and similar painkillers are the
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertile Turtle Bracelet with White Turquoise, Amethyst, or Rose Quartz
exception. In high doses, they can prevent a ripe egg from being released from the ovary.

In contrast, guaifenesin, an ingredient in cough syrup, has actually been prescribed for infertility caused by thick cervical mucous. "It decreases the cellular content and increases the quality and makes it easier for sperm to penetrate," Dr. Gambrell says.


Maybe a Baby?
If there's a chance you're pregnant, the question is more complicated. Doctors used to believe that the two weeks after conception and before implantation were a time when your baby couldn't be harmed by medications. That's no longer thought to be true, says Dr. Donald R. Mattison, medical director of the March of Dimes. Even before the embryo implants, cells are beginning to divide and differentiate. "Most physicians now think of all of the period in the first three months of pregnancy as being at risk," he says.

According to Dr. Mattison, most cold medicines are probably safe for your baby. But since they haven't all been thoroughly studied for safety during pregnancy, there's no way of knowing for sure. "In general, what I would encourage patients to do is minimize the use of any medication at all," he says.
