Pregnancy Over 40 - Pre-eclampsia May Be Reduced With The Right Vitamins

I've always used some type of multivitamin. I especially like multivitamins because it's sort of "one stop shopping" to get most of your vitamins and minerals in one tablet.
I recently read a review of multivitmins from one of the leading consumer magazines. Most well-known brands of multivitmins were tested and found to have what they claimed inside of them. The only recommendation they had was to stay away from some bargain brands such as those found in dollar stores.
 Multivitamins should be used along with a healthy well-balanced diet. Here is an article that explains how multivitamins can reduce the risk of pre-eclampsia:
"Our data show that women who are not overweight before pregnancy and who used multivitamins at least once a week before conception and in the first three months of pregnancy reduced their risk of preeclampsia by a striking 72 percent compared to those who didn't take a multivitamin during this time period," said researcher Lisa Bodnar. She added that because multivitamins contain many nutrients, it was difficult to know the exact mechanism by which the risk of preeclampsia was reduced."

..."Preeclampsia is a potentially devastating condition for mother and baby," said co-researcher James M. Roberts. "It may be that taking a multivitamin prior to conception positively influences embryonic implantation, which is a physiologic process known to be abnormal in preeclampsia."

Pregnancy Over 40 vs. Pregnancy In Your 20's

 I teach at my local community college and my students' ages range from 16 to well over 50 (and even 60!)
But last summer I had something interesting come up. One of my younger students missed a few classes and emailed me that she was pregnant and very upset. She told me that she was going to try to pull herself together enough to start attending class and she had made a decision that she was going to keep the baby. I was really take off-guard.

I dealt with infertility for so many years that I forgot that the vast majority of women (especially younger women) spend most of their reproductive years trying to avoid pregnancy. Statistically speaking, half of all pregnancies are unplanned (that includes older women too!) I'm sure many of those pregnancies are met with panic, sadness and even termination. I think those of us who've stuggled with infertility and miscarriage have a hard time understanding the plight of those fertile women who get pregnant by accident.

For me, I try to remember what it would have been like to get pregnant while I was in college. That really would have been a crisis. The last thing I wanted back then was a baby! I had such a distorted view of family and parenting. It truly was a blessing that I didn't get pregnant until I was in my 40's. I had plenty of time to get my priorities straight and plenty of time to confront my less-than-perfect childhood. Oh what a difference 20 years can make! I think back to the clueless and sometimes misguided young woman I was in high school and college. In retrospect, I'm glad I had every one of those 20 years to get my act together. Maybe my daughter waited on purpose to come down and start her life with us. Perhaps she had the wisdom I didn't.

Pregnancy After 40, Older Women Are Better Mothers

I know many people make a firm decision they won't make the same mistakes with their own children that their parents made with them.   I certainly fall into that category.  Honestly, I think that's why some people want children, they want a chance to "make things right". 

My upbringing was devoid of love and I spent most of my childhood being shuffled to daycare and constantly wondering when I would get even a little one on one time with my parents or just some attention. Well...I never got that alone time with my parents and as I grew older I developed a hard-shell and a attitude of "who needs 'em anyway?" As a matter of fact, that attitude carried over into my adulthood and manifested itself into non-committed relationships and too much time alone. It wasn't until I was in my upper 30's that I realized I needed to change my attitude and turn my life around.

After I got married I couldn't get pregnant fast enough

 After I met my husband and married, it seemed like the floodgates opened. I became a friendlier person, I attracted more people into my life, and I couldn't seem to get pregnant fast enough (when before the last thing I wanted was children).

So where am I going with all this? I think those of us who finally see the light realize we want to give our children everything we didn't have. I refuse to put my daughter in daycare, I give her almost 100% of my attention, and I hug her and tell her I love her every opportunity. Wow, what a different life I might have had it my mother could have done that with me. If you are one that had the kind of upbringing I did, just know that it is possible to have a good life and break the cycle. You can't change your past, but you can create your future - and it can be the way things should have been. Maybe waiting until I was older to have a child was really a blessing. When I was younger, I didn't have the maturity or life experience to understand that I had the power all along to create the life I wanted for me, and my daughter.

When I finally conceived my daughter, I was gripped with terror much of my pregnancy. After so many losses,
I was so afraid I would lose her. Here is an article that addresses the fear many women experience during pregnancy:

According to the article, here are the standard "check-ups" you should expect:

0 to 12 weeks

You’ll be offered a dating scan and screening tests. You’ll also have blood pressure and urine tests (this may be done over two appointments).


16 weeks

The results of screening tests will now be through and you will have more blood pressure and urine tests.

18 to 20 weeks

36 weeks

The position of your baby will be checked – she should be head-down by now. Again, your blood pressure and urine will be checked.

38 and 40 weeks

More abdomen, blood and urine checks.

Pregnancy Over 40, Parenting Over 40

So you're over 40, and you are either currently or pregnant or planning a pregnancy. While older parents are not as rare as they once were, you've most certainly encountered comments from others expressing concerns about waiting so long, or having a child at such a late stage in life, even if it isn't necessarily your first. Still, having a child after 40 has become an increasingly popular phenomenon, especially in countries that are more advanced and industrialized, and with good reason.

From my personal experience, both my parents were over 40 when I came into the world, and I can say without a doubt that I have no regrets being raised by older parents. A Time magazine article published a few decades ago noted that children raised by older parents may miss out on energetic play time. While it may be true that older parents do not have the physical energy that younger ones do, this is still something of an overgeneralization. Energy varies from person to person, and I've known 30 year olds who are more tired and inactive than many 60 year olds.

The energy argument against older parenting is perhaps the only downside, and even that is not a very strong one. The benefits of waiting to have children, on the other hand, are almost innumerable. For one, you will have by now an established career, such that you are ready to slow things down to focus on your family. Many young families try to juggle a strong focus on career while raising a family, and while many do it with varying degrees of success, solid parenting requires focused, steady attention.

Overall maturity is one part of parenting on which I think our society does not place a strong enough emphasis. When I was in college, I noticed striking differences among some of my friends. Those who were raised by older parents were invariably more serious about school work, more goal-oriented, and were simply more kind and generous. I noticed too that those who were raised in young families had a very different disposition that was much more self-involved.

Although pregnancy over 40 may have its own special challenges, older parents should all celebrate their decision to wait. Even if you've been trying to have children for several years, congratulate yourself for bearing children at a time in your life when you've achieved financial and emotional stability. Although you may not be thinking about it now, your kids will thank you for your wisdom later in life.

 Acupressure For Labor and Fertility

I've heard of a number of alternative treatments that may be used to induce labor like accpuncture and acupressure.  In my DVD called Fertility Bodywork ( I talk about how women can enhance their fertility with acupressure which they can perform on themselves (along with reflexology, self massage, and yoga.  This article talks about how acupressure can be used for labor:

During the third trimester, acupressure can also help to encourage a head down position for the baby so as to ensure a smoother birth. Stimulation of specific acupressure points is also widely used for inducing labor of full time pregnancies, because it triggers womb contractions. These and some other acupressure points can also be used during childbirth in order to encourage womb contractions and thus assist the labor.

Calcium: Benefits in Pregnancy To Prevent Preeclampsia

Most women know that taking calcium has many benefits including reducing your chances of getting osteoporosis. However, calcium may also help reduce the risk of developing preeclampisa or toxemia. Read more from Reuters Health:
Pregnant women who take calcium supplements reduce their risk of developing preeclampsia, sometimes called toxemia of pregnancy, according to a new study. However, calcium supplementation has no effect on the risk of preterm birth or stillbirth.

Dr. G. J. Hofmeyr, of the University of the Witwatersrand/University of Fort Hare, East London, South Africa, and colleagues conducted a systematic review of 12 clinical trials, involving over 15,500 women, that compared at least 1 gram of calcium daily during pregnancy with an inactive "placebo" supplement.

Most of the women were at low risk for pregnancy complications, but they had low levels of calcium in their diet. Compared with placebo, calcium supplementation was associated with less high blood pressure and less preeclampsia, the investigators report in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Treatments for Acne In Pregnancy

I was fortunate that I did not experience acne in pregnancy, however the hormonal changes can wreak havoc on some women's faces.  There are many drugs which need to be avoided in pregnancy (that may be commonly prescribed for acne) because they can cause birth defects.  Read more:

Acne and Tretinoin-

Tretinoin is one of the most common retinoids that are used to treat acne. Tretinoin clears the upper layer of the skin by peeling it off. Tretinoin gives very good results in acne treatment and in improvement of skin. But being a Vitamin A derivative, it cannot be used during pregnancy. All other retinoids also cannot be used.


Acne and isotretinoin-

Isotretinoin can treat the severe forms of acne. Isotretinoin which is a derivative of Vitamin A is taken orally to treat acne. But isotretinoin is strictly prohibited during pregnancy. Not only that, you must become pregnant only after few months of your stopping use of Isotretinon. So Isotretinoin is a strictly no during pregnancy.


Many antibiotics are not allowed to be used during pregnancy. You must talk to your doctor before using any antibiotic in any form during your pregnancy. Please click here to read more about Acne & Pregnancy.

Acne during pregnancy-what to use?

The choices are many to treat acne during pregnancy. Benzoyl peroxide, AHAs, Salicylic acid and few other products may be allowed by your doctor to treat acne. You must use any topical or oral medication even if it is OTC, only after consulting your doctor. Somehow, the acne clears off magically immediately after pregnancy. Is not that good news?

Early Pregnancy Back Pain

Guest Post By Daniel Boon
Normal and short-term phenomenon
Early pregnancy back pain is a normal phenomenon in this most beautiful period of a woman's life. Most of the expectant mothers witness some degree of back pain during the early phase of pregnancy and this pain generally subsides after about 20 weeks. Backache or spasm, which is reflected by stretching of muscles or burning pain in the left or the right side of the quadrant, is normally the result of the softening of the supporting ligaments and disks due to an increase in the progesterone hormone during the early stage. In some cases, urinary infection during pregnancy can also result in pain in the back amongst pregnant women. The extra weight of a pregnant women's body and the change in her centre of gravity also result in backaches and pain.
Remedies For Pregnancy Back Pain
The most important and safe remedy for the treatment of early pregnancy back pain is exercising. This is mainly because certain medications for back related pain is contraindicated during early pregnancy. Walking, pelvic rocking, bridging (done by lying down on the floor, bending your knees and lifting your buttocks into air), mini-crunches (done by lying down on the floor), bending your knees and lifting your head on exhalation, are good exercises for relief from pack pain during early pregnancy. Pregnant women do these exercises on their own to relieve back pain.
The right body posture and good body mechanics also play an important role in keeping one free of early pregnancy back pain. The right posture for prevention of back pain is standing straight and tall. However, the importance for correct postures is as essential in early pregnancy as before that. However, in late pregnancy, as the uterus becomes big, one tends to pull back her shoulders to offset the additional weight, which results in a back strain. You can reduce this pain during later stages in such a position by frequently changing your sitting position and avoiding standing for long periods.
Adequate rest and sleep are also essential for avoiding or eliminating early pregnancy back pain. You should take proper rest and avoid strenuous activities to avoid it during your pregnancy. You can also do normal yoga exercises to eliminate minor pain. However, if it persists you should consult your doctor and take proper medication for relief from back pain. In some cases of pain in the back, doctors may prescribe physiotherapy for relief. Massages and use of special mattresses are also effective for back pain relief during pregnancy.
Signs of pregnancy are signal of joy for a couple. Back pain during pregnancy [] is a most common pregnancy symptom.For more on early symptoms of pregnancy and other pregnancy problems information, visit, Pregnancy Back Pain []

Why Clomid May Not Help You Get Pregnant

Clomid is a popular fertility drug to stimulate ovulation.  However, if Clomid is used alone without inseminations, there may be some drawbacks.  Clomid may actually make it harder to get pregnant because it has negative affects on cervical mucus.  I was given Clomid when we first started fertility treatments and I found it to be a very difficult drug to take.  It wreaks havoc on your emotions and I jokingly called it the "week from hell" when I had to take it prior to ovulation.

Short Menstrual Cycles, Pregnancy and Fertility

Not only is it somewhat annoying, but having menstrual cycles that are too short can also be a factor in whether or not you are able to get pregnant and carry a pregnancy to term.  I know my cycles were  less than three weeks apart before I changed my diet, stress levels and before I started using natural progesterone cream.  When we started working with a fertility doctor, they tested my progesterone, and sure enough, it had a "ski jump" pattern (my doctor's words).  It rose just fine, but it crashed the last half of my cycle.  If you need to lengthen your cycles, this article may help:

Design Features of Feng Shui For Fertility and Pregnancy

Feng Shui has been around for 3000 to 4000 years originating in China. Feng Shui helps to create the proper energy flow which can improve your health and your ability to get pregnant and stay pregnant. It can involve removing clutter from your living space and rearranging furniture (especially in your bedroom). It may also involve placing certain symbols around your home to encourage baby "chi" or energy.



My experience with bad nannies - Raising your own kids after pregnancy

Watch out, I'm venting here - about bad nannies. Maybe it's none of my business, but I've come across so many bad nannies lately. I just feel bad for the kids that are left with these people day in and day out.

Here are two recent bad nanny examples:

My daughter and I were at the play area at the mall which was quite crowded. I pulled out my daughter's munchies since she was hungry and a little boy toddler came over wanting some. I gladly gave him as much as he wanted, but he sat with us for 15 minutes before a young gal came to claim him (obviously not his mother). I wanted to ask her who her employer was so I could inform the boy's mother that this so called "nanny" was completely negligent. Where would that boy have ended up if he hadn't sat with us all that time?

We were at storytime at our local bookstore. Three kids were with their nanny. One of the little girls (about two years old) had a terribly runny nose and was pulling books off the shelf and crinkling all the pages (not to mention spreading her nasal bacteria all over the bookstore). The nanny sat there reading a book with a totally "checked out" look on her face. Finally I gave the little girl a tissue. The nanny didn't seem phased at all (don't bother me, I'm reading...!) I wanted to scream at her "HAVE YOU NO SHAME?!"

I've come to the conclusion that even the best of nannies (and in all fairness, I've met some really good ones too) are no substitute for mommy, daddy or even grandma and grandpa. I didn't go through six years of infertility and six miscarriages to have someone else raise my daughter - and incidences like the above only confirm my choice.

Having babies and competitive parenting

I've written before about competitive parenting. Here is blog on the subject which is hilarious, very entertaining and sooooo true.  With Mother's day coming up, I thought this would be appropriate!

Here's an excerpt:


Whenever you’re somewhere that mommies congregate, one of the first things a woman with a similarly aged baby will ask you is “is she doing such and such?” For some, it genuinely is a friendly question, meant to break the ice. But in almost any assemblage of mommies, there will lurk Competitive Mom. With this woman, almost any question of this sort is actually the opening shot in a gunfight at the development corral. And you’d better know that the women who shelled out $800 dollars for that top shelf stroller is going to be equally invested in making sure her Brianna is the first in the playgroup to drink from a sippy cup. Thus begins a vicious cycle from which no baby will emerge unscathed: the competitive mom will open the competition asking about something your baby is able to do and then to top you, she’ll come up with something your baby can’t do but hers is doing fantastically.

Diabetes before pregnancy can increase birth defects in women over 40 or any age

I knew that having diabetes could complicate a pregnancy, but I never knew the condition could be a risk factor for birth defects.  These defects can involve a number of body systems including the heart, kidneys, gastrointestinal system, cleft palate and more.
 Here is an article that explains how birth defects are more common if the mother had diabetes before becoming pregnant (rather than developing the condition after becoming pregnant):
From the article:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Women who have diabetes before becoming pregnant are about three times as likely as other women to have a baby with at least one birth defect, U.S. researchers said on Wednesday.

A variety of different birth defects are associated with mothers who have type 1 diabetes, also called juvenile diabetes, or type 2 diabetes, the most common form of the disease that is linked to obesity, the researchers said.

These included defects of the heart, brain, spine, limbs, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract, penile and ear abnormalities and cleft palate, the researchers wrote in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

"This study documents the fact that diabetes is associated with a wider range of defects than we had been aware of in the past," Dr. Adolfo Correa of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who led the study, said in a telephone interview.

Correa said it appears that the condition called gestational diabetes is not associated with an increased risk of birth defects. This is a short-lived form of diabetes that can appear in a woman during pregnancy, but blood sugar levels usually return to normal shortly after the baby is born.

But Correa said some cases diagnosed as gestational diabetes may actually be type 2 diabetes that simply had gone unrecognized until the pregnancy.

The study involved 13,030 babies born with birth defects around the United States and 4,895 babies without birth defects, and the researchers determined which of the mothers had diabetes before becoming pregnant.

Postpartum Depression and Stress

A number of celebrities had told their stories of how they suffered from postpartum depression after their child was born.  Marie Osmond and Brook Shields are a few I can recall. I was fortunate that I did not experience post-partum depression. I did have my hormonal moments after my daughter was born, but in general she was an easy baby. However, I've read many stories of women who had debilitating depression after the birth of their babies. Here is an article that links stress with post-partum depression:

From the article:

...Bringing home a difficult infant, Cutrona found, did lead to greater maternal depression, accounting for one-third of the difference between the mothers' postpartum levels of depression. The link between infant temperament and maternal depression may arise from the mother's feelings about herself, Cutrona says. When a woman has trouble comforting her child, she feels less competent as a mother. She may develop ambivalent feelings toward her child, causing guilt and further lowering her self-esteem.

Although there's not much a mother can do to alter her baby's basic temperament, she can lower the stress she feels by developing a network of supportive people. Women who reported high levels of support from spouses, parents or friends before

their babies were born had more confidence as parents and felt less depressed three months after delivery, Cutrona says. This is bescause social contacts - reliable friends and esteem-building colleagues - can help a person maintain a sense of self-worth in times of stress..."

Don't Diet In Pregnancy

I've always said that the best time to get yourself in shape and lose weight is before you try to conceive.
 Calorie restriction can hinder your ability to get pregnant and, according to this article, it can harm your baby if you're already pregnant. Read more:

Women may be risking a low intelligence quotient (IQ) for their unborn babies by dieting during pregnancy, a new research indicates.

Cutting back on vital nutrients and calories in the first half of pregnancy stunts the development of an unborn child’s brain, says a new study.

Although it was carried out on primates, researchers say the same findings are likely to be true for women, reports the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Thomas McDonald of the University of Texas Health Science Centre US, who conducted the study, said: “This study is a further demonstration of the importance of good maternal health and diet.”

Acupuncture and Pregnancy - A World of Benefits

Guest Post By Jenny Heart

It is well known by now that acupuncture is effective in the treatment and prevention of many illnesses. From migraine headaches to premenstrual cramps to insomnia, there are virtually no limits to the conditions that can be alleviated by this ancient Chinese healing art. Used by physicians, dentists and holistic practitioners worldwide, acupuncture is highly regarded in both Eastern and Western medical practices. The National Institute of Health reports an ever increasing use of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and one Harvard study estimates that Americans visit acupuncturists more than five million times per year.

In all of its purported uses, it comes as no surprise, then, that acupuncture is also effective in treating pregnant women. More and more, women are seeking drug-free treatment for various pregnancy-related conditions. Thus, acupuncture, having no contraindications, is becoming highly sought after, as women are learning that it is both safe and beneficial for mother and baby.
Pregnant women living here in Western North Carolina might consider visiting an Asheville acupuncture practitioner. Regularly scheduled balancing treatments throughout pregnancy enhance the health of the mother, influence the development of the baby, and help to prevent complications during childbirth. Acupuncture treatments can be given once a month until the final month, when weekly sessions help prepare for labor. Some treatments may cause a slight increase in fetal movements, but no acupuncture treatment - unless it is intended to induce labor - should significantly increase uterine activity.
There are many benefits of acupuncture during pregnancy; among these is its particular effectiveness in relieving morning sickness. This is great news for women who feel especially sick during the first three months of pregnancy, and even more so for those suffering from potentially dangerous hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe vomiting, during pregnancy. Studies are emerging that show women who receive acupuncture during the first trimester report having less frequent and shorter bouts of nausea than women who don't receive acupuncture. During the first trimester, acupuncture can also relieve migraines, fatigue, and bleeding. During the second trimester, acupuncture aids in maintaining balance by easing heartburn, hemorrhoids and stress. It can also be used to treat high blood pressure, edema and excessive weight gain.
In the third trimester, acupuncture treatment can bring relief from backache, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, and pubic and joint pain. Fortunately for the mother, the benefits are often immediate. The third trimester is also a time when a great deal of attention is given to the proper positioning of the baby. The acupuncturist should begin to encourage a head-down position by 32 to 34 weeks.
If you live in Asheville, acupuncture is very much an available resource for you during your pregnancy. Be sure to find an acupuncture practitioner who is nationally certified as a diplomate of acupuncture and who has experience in treating women who are pregnant. Acupuncturists with adequate training in the care of pregnant women should recognize the potentially serious nature of certain symptoms and only offer care that coincides with their patient's Western medical care regimen as dictated by their primary care doctor or obstetrician.

Pregnancy Staple: The Super-Foods

By Mehnaz S Tabassum
While pregnancy is the most amazing experience in a woman's life, it is, to many extents, excruciating too. The body and the mind goes through so many unique changes during this time, that both become exhausted and wearied. It is inevitable, but to-be-moms can actually minimize the side effects of pregnancy by taking proper care of themselves, and it definitely starts with a balanced diet. There are some super-foods, which have been proven to make pregnancy a better experience, for both mommy and baby.
Loveable Leafy Greens
We all have heard this over and over again that how beneficial leafy green veggies are during pregnancy. It does not matter how much overstated it sounds, but it is utterly important to have a healthy amount of leafy greens in to-be-moms' daily diets. This is why the green beauties like spinach, collard greens, kale, cabbages, brussels and all such rich resources of Vitamin A, C, lutein, carotene, calcium and many more, have topped our super-foods' list!
League of Legumes and Beans
These are the ultimate, super convenient super-foods which should be there in expectant moms' menus everyday. Rich in fibers, protein, iron, niacin, thiamine, calcium, sodium and many other good things, the beans and legumes also come with the longest storage lives. These can be stored and frozen easily while keeping the nutrients intact for days. Whether in thick soups, or healthy salads, these are perfect to be tried the way pregnant moms feel comfortable with. After all, they do become choosy when it is about food, so they are the ones to decide how to eat their beans, indeed!
Wholesome Whole Grains
While processed grains destroy many of the goodness in food, whole grains actually fill up those losses. For expectant moms, inclusion of whole grains in their daily meals is nothing but a must. The minerals, proteins, fibers, and vitamins, particularly the Vitamin B Complex is vital to ensure both baby and mom's well-being. Having more oats, quinoa or brown rice instead of the regular processed ones will add more benefits.
Nourishing Nuts (and Seeds, too!)
Nuts and seeds are our all time favorite pregnancy snacks. We can not deny the sudden cravings for bizarre things, but for the other times, tossing nuts and seeds in the mouth like good old days can not be beaten. Moreover, having a portion of these everyday will include important nutrients like fiber, minerals and omega-3 fatty acid. It will be a good idea to skip the packaged ones, since they are full of added salts, oils and other unwanted taste-enhancers. Being as much natural as possible always works, so just home-roasting walnuts, pumpkin seeds, almonds, cashews etc. will do great.
Pregnancy is one crucial time for both mom and her baby. All it needs is the right care. When you are responsible to provide nutrition to two human lives, it is worth the work. While these super-foods are must to have, do not forget to drink a lot of water throughout the day.

Pregnancy Over 40 Or Any Age Isn't Always Perfect - Even For Celebrities!

This article from the UK almost made me laugh. It was very refreshing to have someone talk about the hardships of pregnancy and early motherhood.
 Most of us who have had a hard time getting pregnant don't dare complain, and there are many wonderful aspects of becoming a mother! However, this article talks frankly about things most people don't know about but should be prepared for:

From the article:

Welcome to motherhood.

The truth for me was being a mother for the first time was unbelievably, and ­sometimes unbearably, hard It was a relentless and ­thankless chore that left me fat, frustrated and fed-up. Was I the only one sick to the back teeth of images of calm
