Birthing Chair Supports Back In Labor

Pregnancy Over 40, Delivery Options

I have heard many times that laying flat on your back is not the best way to deliver a baby.
My site:
 As this article explains, you should let gravity work for you. A birth chair can help support the back during the process. Read more:

From the article:

While a conventional labor table requires you to apply extra force, the birthing chair helps to use the force of gravity and helps control labor pains.

Birthing chairs today are much more sophisticated than in the past and many can be turned into delivery tables to give you a stronger sense of empowerment, while others are equipped with straps to help you maneuver you into the correct position for delivery.

Some are three-legged stools with an elevated slanting back and circular seat with a big hole in the middle. The lower part of the chair can be removed or folded, and enables you to sit, recline or lie down. Mirrors, lights, or basins can also be added to balance the chair.

Apples May Prevent Asthma In Baby

Pregnancy Over 40, Eat Your Apples!

I wish I would have known this when I was pregnant since my husband's side of the family suffers from asthma.
My site:
 Eating apples when pregnant could help prevent this condition. Read more:

From the article:

Berries, citrus and stone fruit have long hogged the media spotlight. These glamorous fruits are praised for their colour, antioxidant content and flavour. However, we seem to have forgotten, the humble apple is also a nutritional wonder. Along with a bit of vitamin C, apples are packed full of antioxidant phytochemicals - particularly if you eat the skin.

While consumers might be turning off apples, researchers have long been a little apple crazy, as highlighted by two recent studies:

Research published in the journal Thorax has suggested eating apples when pregnant may protect your baby from asthma.

Gastrointestinal Problems In Pregnancy

Pregnancy Over 40, GI Upsets and More

I was sooooo happy to be pregnant, I wouldn't dare complain about some of the physical discomforts.
My site:
 However, it is a little strange when your body takes on a life of its own. I had a number of gastrointestinal upsets during pregnancy...everything from nausea and vomiting in my first trimester to heartburn in my third trimester. All these things are very is an article about some of the common GI problems in pregnancy and what you can do about them:

From the article:

Another common gastrointestinal problem at this stage of your life is heartburn or reflux, resulting from hormonal changes during your pregnancy. This problem is caused by women's progesterone. The level of progesterone is increased during pregnancy, loosening the normal sphincter. This problem occurs between the esophagus and the stomach, in the gastroesophageal junction. From there, acid content of the stomach moves up into the esophagus causing pyrosis or burning pain.

Pancreatitis in pregnant women usually occurs when a gallstone is caught in the main bile duct causing gallstone pancreatitis. This condition makes the stone leaving the gallbladder block the opening to the pancreas causing the enzymes in the intestine to attack the pancreas, causing inflammation, nausea, vomiting, and dull pain in the mid-abdomen.

Other pregnant women may develop a number of gastrointestinal problems in pregnancy, such as acute cholecystitis, appendicitis, liver problems associated to earlier gastric condition, abdominal pain in early pregnancy, dyspepsia, and inflammatory bowel disease. Periodical visits to your doctor in addition to exercising, eating and drinking adequate amounts of food and water can make you feel better.

Twins: More Likely If You're Tall

Pregnancy Over 40, Does Height Increase The Likelihood of Twins

I did get pregnant with twins after one of my IVF cycles but unfortunately miscarried.
 My site:
 Otherwise I think it would be unlikely that I would naturally conceive them. According to this article, taller women have a higher liklihood of having twins (since I'm a petite person, that's another strike against me!) Read more:

Taller Women Are More Likely To Have Twins, Obstetrician's Study Confirms

From the article:

Insulin-like growth factor (IGF) is a protein that is released from the liver in response to growth hormone. It increases the sensitivity of the ovaries to follicle stimulating hormone, thereby increasing ovulation. Some studies also suggest that IGF may help embryos survive in the early stages of development.

Among its many effects in the body, IGF stimulates cells in the shaft of long bones to grow. Previous studies have demonstrated that people with short stature have significantly lower levels of IGF. Countries with taller women have higher rates of twinning compared to countries with shorter women.
