 There are many well publicized symptoms of early pregnancy.  But there are many women who don't even know they are pregnant until well into their pregnancy.  TLC even has a show called, "I didn't know I was pregnant".  Many women featured in the show are older and they automatically assume that they are too old to get pregnant so it never even enters their mind.  They know they don't feel quite right, and they may experience weight gain, but pregnancy isn't on their radar.  I have devoted a

Pregnancy Over 40:  The Benefits of Drinking Water

Drinking enough water in pregnancy is so important. I made it a point to start drinkng water in the morning so I could get all of my water in during the day.
 Here is an article that explains the importance of getting enough water in pregnancy. However, they do recommend stay away from tap water. Read more:

How is water good for your body and your baby?

* By flushing out your system, it helps get rid of unnecessary sodium and prevents Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs).
* It hydrates your body; pregnancy hormones are making you retain water and drinking more water helps fight that.
* Water facilitates the flow of nutrients through the blood to the baby.
* Did you know that the amniotic sack replenishes itself every hour, using approximately a cup of water stored in the mother’s body? This protects the baby, so help keep the sack wet!
* Your blood volume doubles and thickens during the eighth month of pregnancy; drink water to prevent hypertension and cardiovascular diseases.
* You’ll have healthier skin and less acne.
* Drinking eight glasses of water a day helps prevent constipation and hemorrhoids. Trust us, you want to prevent this.

Studies on Awareness Prior to Being Born - The Pre-Birth Experience

Guest Post By Gopalakrishnan Tiruvan Chandrasekaran

Studies have been conducted on pre-birth experience (PBE), the one in which the person has clear memories of awareness before birth. In most cases of the PBEs, details of those memories can be verified through those who were there around the time of birth, usually the mother as the main person. This article brings out some of the salient features of PBEs based on information from three studies.
It is rather obvious that awareness (the primary aspect of consciousness) exists after life ends. This has been demonstrated time and again by near death experiences (NDE) when the consciousness leaves the body and is able to perceive worldly occurrences without the help of the five senses. The question of whether consciousness functions the same way before the birth of a person can be a very absorbing one for those who see meaning in the reincarnation paradigm. The writer has come across three probing studies in this connection. Here a brief attempt is made to share the related findings. For further details, the reader is referred to the three books associated with the studies, all available on




Study 1: Psychologist Dr. Helen Wambach wrote a book entitled 'Life Before Life' in 1979. It explores the fascinating answers to probing questions asked of 750 subjects under hypnosis about life before birth. Wambach says that 90 % of her subjects flash on images from their past lives. She adds that, "I am convinced that the time has come to study rigorously the plausibility of reincarnation." Three of her questions to her subjects under hypnosis and the answers are the following:
Question 1: Did you choose to be born?
81 % of her subjects said that they did choose to be born and that it was their choice to make. However, only 28 % felt enthusiastic about being alive again; they felt that they had planned carefully and were ready to begin.
Question 2: Why did you choose the 20th Century?
About 59 % gave relevant answers to this question. Their response contained many different reasons for the choice. Some felt that their choosing the specific time period was to have contact with particular people who chose the same period. One answer was, "I came in this time period to correct past errors and to work out my guilt about certain relationships."
Question 3: Why are we here on earth?
Not all of the subjects were clear about this item but quite a few came up with interesting answers. Some of these people said that there is so much to learn on this planet, especially in terms of relationship, love and humility, and that there are many experiences, good and bad, to go through. Others mentioned about learning that can help in going beyond fear and loneliness. Some indicated the need to be with people to make up for the hurt they had caused in former lives.

The above samples represent a very small part of Wambach's research. Her book contains a great deal more of fascinating information on pre-birth memories.
Study 2: This work is also related to consciousness prior to birth but is not through regression, hypnosis or drugs. Elizabeth and Neil Carman compiled a book on PBEs through interviewees recalling their pre-birth existence while they were completely sober and awake. The title of the book is 'Cosmic Cradle, Spiritual Dimensions of Life before Birth'. A report on the book says that it transports us beyond the conventional materialistic idea that heredity and social environment explain human life. In contrast, our life's drama is planned long before birth.
Where was your soul before you were born? If your soul is immortal, did it have a "life" prior to birth? Did you choose your life and parents? Is reincarnation real? Elizabeth and Neil Carman address these questions through interviews with adults and children. They also state that Buddha pointed out four modes of human birth:
1. To enter the mother's womb fully conscious, stay in the womb with full awareness, and experience birth consciously. Enlightened masters report these memories.
2. To enter the mother's womb fully conscious, stay in the womb with full awareness, but lose awareness during birth.
3. To enter the mother's womb fully conscious, but lose awareness in the womb and throughout birth.
4. To enter the mother's womb unconsciously and remain unconscious throughout womb-time and birth. This heavily veiled memory is more typical of most human births.
The above rendering by Buddha clearly points to the fact that pre-birth awareness is a fact.
Study 3: This study by PMH Atwater, primarily on near death experiences, touches on PBEs also. The title of her book is 'The Complete Idiot's Guide to Near Death Experiences'. She says that one-third of the 277 child experiencers in her research base had clear, coherent memories of happenings before they were born. A particularly interesting study is the one given below.
Two weeks before the birth of Carroll Gray of Atlanta, Georgia, the doctor informed her mother that there was no heart beat and the baby was dead. Her father, eagerly expecting a son, was severely disappointed at this. He accused Carroll's mother of having killed his son; threw her from her bed resulting in her uterus being ruptured. The mother was rushed to the hospital and a dead baby was delivered. But, like a miracle, the child began to breath! What was even more astonishing was the fact that, after two and half years, Carroll spoke out the very words her father said at the time of throwing his wife off the bed. Obviously, everyone was dumbfounded as the family had never discussed that unfortunate incident among themselves. Further, Carroll also recalled the difficulties she came through as a newborn baby because of the unusual conditions of her birth.
Atwater says that stories with the accuracy of Carroll's are so numerous, they challenge the notion that unborn babies are oblivious to anything outside their mother's womb.
In Conclusion: For people who are interested in understanding the long journey of life across many incarnate and discarnate periods, the above studies can be invaluable as their areas of spiritual exploration. Those studies expand our perspectives on life and the afterlife. Our day-to-day life guided by such far-reaching insights can have a depth and meaning that the conventional belief systems can never bring about. Related matters are covered in the website

Much has been written about pregnancy over the age of 40 which can scare any woman half to death.  When I found out I was finally pregnant with my daughter, my joy was quickly squelched by all of the doom and gloom presented to me by the well meaning medical professionals. I was given a list of all the possible complications that could occur during my pregnancy due to the fact that I was 44. 
And guess what?  I had a completely normal pregnancy and normal vaginal delivery.  So there!
But what about birth defects and pregnancy complications over the age of 40?  Are they that much higher?  Not really.  Read more:

Women who have a pregnancy over the age of 35 (and over 40) were found to be mentally sharper as they aged.  According to this article, they theorize that the surge of reproductive hormones can be beneficial as women age.  Read more:


The main hormones at play are estrogen and progesterone. In animal studies, estrogen has a beneficial impact on brain chemistry, function and structure; progesterone is linked with growth and development of brain tissue, Karim said.

The study, published this month in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, includes 830 women who, on average, were 60 years old. The data was adjusted for age, race and ethnicity, income and education.
Participants were given a series of tests that included assessments of verbal memory (remembering a list of words or retelling a story after some distraction), psychomotor speed, attention and concentration, planning, visual perception and memory.
Previous research has shown that many women experience brainpower and memory declines in their postmenopausal years. An outpouring of estrogen and progesterone, especially in later life, appears to be beneficial, Karim said.

 Pregnancy Over 40 - worrying

Motherhood may contribute to your worry, but according to the article below, women tend to worry more than men in general.
That doesn't surprise most of us, but the article helps to explain why.
Click here for the Fertility/Pregnancy Symbol Necklace

From the article:

Scientists have known that on the whole, females of all ages tend to worry more and have more intense worries than males. Women also tend to perceive more risk in situations and grow more anxious than men.

Now we know why.

Women are more likely than men to believe that past experiences accurately forecast the future, according to two new studies.

The research, involving both 3- to 6-year-olds and adults of both genders, tested the extent to which participants' thought that worry can be caused by thinking that a bad event that happened in the past could happen again in the future. (This skill, in its simplest form, is critical to social understanding as it is important to making decisions and assessing risk.)

I posted in the past that 50 year old Janet Jackson was pregnant.  Although we don't really know all of the circumstances that led to her pregnancy, I couldn't be happier for her!  Everyone deserves to have a baby no matter what their age.  We finally have an update on how she is doing!

Janet Jackson offered a rare personal update as she nears the birth of her first child, assuring fans she's doing well in her first tweet since confirming her pregnancy.
"Hey you guys.. It's been awhile.. but I'm still listening," the 50-year-old vocalist wrote on Twitter. "I feel your love and prayers.. Thank you.. and I'm doing well." (nydailynews)

Within hours of Jackson’s Twitter status becoming public, a mass of media outlets — from Perez Hilton to US Weekly, E! News and even Emirates Woman — covered the short, but sweet social media reach-out, and treated it as front-page news. To say that it was quite the feat somehow shortchanges the actual impact, but considering the way the entertainment world has continuously negated Jackson’s reach and influence, it also serves as a bit of comeuppance toward her many naysayers.(inquisitor)

Fructose is a kind of sugar which is present in fruits as well as processed foods in the form of "high fructose corn syrup".  Unfortunately, it can wreak havoc on our bodies and in pregnancy it can lead to complications in the placenta and the future growth of the baby.  Read more:


Consuming a high-fructose diet during pregnancy may cause defects in the placenta and restrict fetal growth, potentially increasing a baby's risk for metabolic health problems later in life, according to research in mice and people by a team at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Studying mice, the researchers found elevated uric acid and triglycerides in otherwise healthy mice who were fed a high-fructose diet during pregnancy. Additionally, the mice developed smaller fetuses and larger placentas than those fed standard rodent chow.
Genetically, Moley said, a small fetus may become wired to grow more after birth than a normal-sized fetus. "The body tries to compensate for the small growth in utero," Moley said. "These babies can become kids and then adults struggling with obesity and other health problems."

  As a general rule, pregnant women should avoid the use of any type of drug.  Even drugs that are considered "safe" may have consequences that we don't know about.  Here is an article about how acetaminophen may be associated with autism and ADHD.  Read more:

The researchers found that 43 percent of the children assessed at the age of 1 and 41 percent of those assessed at age 5 were born to mothers who used acetaminophen in the first 32 weeks of pregnancy.

Compared with children born to mothers who did not take acetaminophen during pregnancy, the researchers found that those whose mothers used acetaminophen in the first 32 weeks of pregnancy were 30 percent more likely at age 5 to have attention impairments, often found in children with autism or ADHD.
Children prenatally exposed to acetaminophen were also more likely to have symptoms of hyperactivity or impulsivity at the age of 5. Those who had been persistently exposed to the drug performed worse on tests of attention, impulsivity, and visual speed processing.

Doctor's Advice on Pregnancy - Air Travel

Guest Post By Dr. Sloan Charles, M.D.

Being a medical doctor, I have been approached quite often by pregnant mothers to issue a letter of fitness prior to their travel by plane.
Usually, the airline rules and regulations clearly states that pregnancy below 28 weeks would be allowed to fly after signing a "Release & Indemnity Form" to absolve the airline of any liabilities should anything unforeseen happen. Pregnancy between 28-34 weeks would require a medical certificate from the attending doctor stating the date and fitness to fly. Pregnancy at and beyond 35 weeks are not allowed to travel by air.


In addition to that, expectant mother should be informed that
1) The letter of fitness issued by the attending doctor MUST be within 1week prior to the date of
departure. Thus, it is only wise to consult the doctor and get the ultrasound scan done and letter issue after the date of departure has been arranged.
2) Generally, it is wise to avoid travel by plane during the first trimester (0-12 weeks pregnancy) as miscarriages takes place at the period. This is more so if the pregnant mother has history of recurring pregnancy losses.
3) Relatively speaking, it is better to travel by air in the second trimester (13-27 weeks pregnancy) also known as honeymoon period because many of the unpleasant effects of early pregnancy have ended. During this period, the pregnancy is more established and more stable.
4) Pregnancy itself is a risk factor to develop DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and coupled with the long distance air travel, the risk is higher.
DVT : A condition where a clot is formed in the veins of the leg and may lead to serious consequences to health.
5) Always inform the airline and check the airline policy in carrying the pregnant passengers.

I have had bouts of tinnitus over the years and women who are pregnant complain of this problem as well.  It can be very annoying and a burden to live with.  Tinnitus is also known as "ringing in the ears".  Usually it is a constant high pitched sound.  Pregnant women have so many changes going on in their body that may trigger this condition.  For starters, you're gaining weight and some of that is just sheer blood volume.  This can raise blood pressure which may trigger the condition.

Decreasing Your Risk For Preeclampsia (High Blood Pressure) During Pregnancy

Guest Post By Dr. Mark Zakowski

Preeclampsia, or high blood pressure during pregnancy, remains one of the top diseases of pregnant
women. Preeclampsia today causes premature delivery, major complications, and even death of mom and baby. A whopping 7-10% of all pregnant women develop signs of preeclampsia. What can you do about it? New evidence shows that vitamin supplementation can reduce the risk of preeclampsia and the terrible problems that it can cause!
Preeclampsia is a disorder that occurs only during pregnancy and the postpartum period and affects both the mother and the unborn baby. Affecting at least 5-8%, and as high as 10% of all pregnancies, it is a rapidly progressive condition characterized by high blood pressure and the presence of protein in the urine. Swelling, sudden weight gain, headaches and changes in vision are important symptoms; however, some pregnant women with rapidly advancing disease report few symptoms.
Severe preeclampsia requires not only treatment of blood pressure but also childbirth of the baby, regardless of the gestational age. Under these adverse conditions, the baby is not going to continue growing, and even more dangerous - mom's life is at risk!



Those at risk include:
  • Women less than 20 years old
  • Women older than 40 years old
  • Obese women
  • Women with preeclampsia in a prior pregnancy
  • Having a family history of preeclampsia
  • Twins or triplets (multiple gestation)
  • Pre-existing medical problems:
  • Chronic hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Anti-phospholipid syndrome

The main signs of preeclampsia are high blood pressure and protein in the urine. Pregnant women with preeclampsia may also have:

  • Swelling (edema) of the hands and feet
  • Sudden weight gain (5 or more pounds in one week)
  • Problems with vision, such as blurriness or flashing lights
  • Severe headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Intense pain in the upper right part of the belly.

Pregnant women with mild preeclampsia often have no obvious symptoms. So if you have it, you may not suspect that anything is wrong.
Preeclampsia is usually detected during a routine prenatal visit. That's one reason why it's important to keep all your appointments during your pregnancy. During prenatal visits, the health care provider measures your blood pressure and checks your urine for protein. If preeclampsia is diagnosed, it can usually be managed before it becomes serious.
Evidence shows you CAN decrease your chance of getting preeclampsia during pregnancy.
The oral intake of Vitamin C 1000 mg and Vitamin E 400 IU each day significantly reduces the chance of getting preeclampsia.
You should take 1000mg of vitamin C and 400IU of Vitamin E every day, starting as soon as you know you're pregnant! Studies by Chappell (Lancet 1999 and Am J Obstet Gynecol 2002) have shown that taking 1000 mg of Vitamin C and 400 IU of Vitamin E a day beginning early in pregnancy can reduce the risk of preeclampsia by a staggering 76 percent. Preeclampsia is one of the biggest causes of premature birth, low birth weight babies, can lead to liver and bleeding problems in mom, and even death! Remember, up to 15% of preterm births are a result of preeclampsia.
However, starting antioxidant therapy once preeclampsia becomes a factor is not effective - it is too late! Even starting vitamins therapy at 24 weeks or later may be too late, as many of the changes that cause preeclampsia will already have occurred.
