Pregnancy

How long were you trying to get pregnant?

We tried the old fashioned way for 6 months before we went to a fertility specialist. Mark ( my husband) was 40 and I was 43 when we started trying. We went through our fertility treatments for a total of 2 and 1/2 years before we had a successful cycle.

What did you do or not do to increase your chances of getting pregnant after 40?

When we were trying on our own I tried everything under the sun! I already had a pretty healthy lifestyle as far as eating and exercise but I added in a lot of supplements and tweaked my diet with fertility-boosting foods. I scoured the internet for vitamins, supplements, and healthy foods to improve fertility. I tried them all I swear! Maca root, royal jelly, bee pollen, juicing all kinds of veggies, especially beets. We jokingly called them “Beetaritas!”

I ate a ton of avocados, walnuts, and olive oil based dishes because I read that a Mediterranean diet could help.  I figured it couldn’t hurt anyway!  I did a lot of yoga and I also did acupuncture and lymphatic massages.  
I added in extra Vitamin E (natural source), L-Arganine, along with my other daily supplements.


As time went on, we knew our odds were decreasing because my eggs were getting older; we had to try the 3 rounds of IUI (intrauterine insemination) and one round of IVF with our own embryos.  After those attempts failed, we were fortunate enough to have a chance to try 2 cycles with donor embryos. 

Our second cycle of this type was the one that worked, the miracle that resulted in our beautiful son. We are so blessed and grateful beyond words to have been given this opportunity.  It was actually going to be our final attempt with IVF no matter what. We made peace with that and kind of realized that we could only do so much.  What’s meant to be will always find a way.

Support

Medical Community

How supportive were your doctors during your pregnancy?

My doctors were 100% supportive all the way.  Especially being with a fertility specialist like we were, there was never a feeling from him that I was “too old” or that I shouldn’t do all I could to follow my dreams of being a Mom.

Did you change doctors or would like to have changed doctors? Why or why not?

I did not change doctors, nor did I want to.  Our doctor is the best fertility specialist in our area in my opinion. He and his staff are kind, compassionate and tireless when it comes to their patients. We always felt encouragement from them and he was always pushing forward to figure out how to make a pregnancy stick for me. In the end, the tweaks that we used during that final protocol, were the things that helped me get pregnant and stay pregnant!

Family and Friends

What was the reaction of friends and family when you told me about your pregnancy?

Overjoyed and excited beyond words!  We are so lucky to have a wonderful support system made up of our family and friends.  I suppose some mere acquaintances may have been raising an eyebrow behind our backs seeing as some of them were already having grandbabies! But this was our journey and we couldn’t have cared less if people thought we were a little crazy.  Like Dr. Suess says “Those who matter don’t mind and those who mind don’t matter”.

Labor and Delivery

What do you remember most about the birth experience?

I remember it was fast and furious because I was induced with Pitocin a few days before my due date.  With IVF patients, my doctor recommends this due to the chances of the placenta function being compromised and amniotic fluid possibly getting low.  I’m pretty sure my age was also a factor but mainly it was because of the IVF.


I went for a natural birth for various reasons, even though everyone said I’d probably change my mind about that. The contractions, once active labour kicked in, were intense and incredibly powerful. 

The worst part about it though is that they were literally on top of each other and I didn’t get much of a rest in between. I was actually about to tell the nurse to give me the epidural when she told me I was at 7 cm, and it wouldn’t take long now.  So I held off because I was worried labour would stall if I did get it.  We were so close and we were so anxious to meet him!


It was 7 hours exactly from the time I was induced to the time I delivered. The last 3 hours were pretty wild. I don’t regret going natural, but I think the epidural may have made for a more calm birth experience. It worked out the way it was supposed to for me.


 I remember that I was going back and forth between screaming and swearing like a sailor to praying to God, my Mother and anyone else up there that would listen. 


My husband was cracking jokes trying to make me smile. I wanted to smack him. I probably did because his hand was bruised pretty good because I was gripping it!)


I remember the feeling when my son’s shoulders released, and all that intense pain just vanished. I lifted my head to see the doctor pull him out and they laid him immediately on my chest.  I have never felt anything like it.  My heart was exploding with pure love and joy.  Everything changed in that moment as we watched him take his first breath right before our eyes. We both cried like babies from the sheer happiness, and really not even believing that he was finally here.


I remember feeling that I have never felt so exhausted, yet so euphoric all at once.

I’m a Mom!


Do you have any concerns about being a mom over 40? If so, how do you address these concerns?

I really don’t have any pressing concerns about being a mom over 40.  I am definitely more mature than I was 20 years ago and less selfish. I truly appreciate this gift that I have been given. If anything I suppose it has crossed my mind wondering if I will be around to meet my grandchildren, but no one is guaranteed tomorrow, regardless of age so I don’t even really count that.  

What do you enjoy most about being a first-time mom over 40?


I enjoy EVERYTHING about being a first-time mom over 40. I think mainly it’s being comfortable in my own skin and confident in myself and where I am on my path in life. I go with the flow. I know that time passes quickly so I try to cherish every moment and find joy in the small things in life.  I take mental snapshots of my son to save in my memory banks because I know he won’t be this little forever!  Even on the hard days, when I am exhausted or he is being a crabby toddler, I remind myself of how fast it goes and this too shall pass.  I honestly don’t know if I would tell myself that if I was a young mom, just having a bit more life experience changes one’s perception.  In other words, I try not to sweat the small stuff.

How has becoming a mom changed you?

The biggest change I’d say was that it’s not about me anymore. It’s all about Bug. And my husband. Our family.  Not that I don’t find little ways to pamper myself and indulge in a little self-care from time to time but right now at least, we are his sole protectors and providers. I also have a newfound appreciation of how much my own parents loved me.  It’s that kind of unconditional love that you feel for your child that really can’t compare to anything else.  Once you feel it you know.


I would do anything in the world to protect him from any type of pain or suffering. When my own Mom passed away in the hospital, my sister and I missed her by minutes, literally.  We were beating ourselves up over this until we realized that our Mom had done that for us.  She did not want us in the room to see her take her very last breath on this earth, because she knew that moment would be burned into our memory forever to relive.  And that’s the kind of Mom she was, anything to save us from pain even in her last moments. That’s the kind of Mom I hope to be.  A love like that is pure, intense and strong and now I understand it from both sides.  As a child, and now as a Mother.

What advice do you have for women considering motherhood over 40?

I will just say to follow your heart and go for it. You are DEFINITELY not too old! ( remember I was 46!) and have probably had your share of young, wild and crazy adventures.  You are most likely more financially secure and stable in your career, and that it can be one of the most fulfilling times in your life. Don’t let the naysayers get you down!


 Yes, you will be tired some days but I really don’t think that being an exhausted mom applies only to us so-called older moms.  That’s universal.  I encourage you to follow your dreams always, and if becoming a mom later in life is the dream, chase after it!  Do your research, talk to your doctor and if you happen to need a little help getting there through fertility treatments, explore that option!


  Remember, that this is YOUR life, YOUR journey. You and your husband or partner are the only ones who get to have a say in what is right for your relationship and life. For me, becoming a Mom over 40  has been the greatest blessing ever, and I wish you all the best in your journey!

Conceive After 35 and 40- Food Tip

By August 10, 2019 Uncategorized

Eat Like A Pregnant Mom

I share this food tip from my experience and other women who conceived naturally after 35 and 40. Eat as if you are pregnant.

I don’t mean fulfilling the myth of the pregnant woman eating for two which involves consuming large food portions! Researchers say this type of overeating is unhealthy for the mother and baby.

In an article with WebMD, Julie Redfern, RD, LDN, a registered dietitian at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston says, “Many women who do ‘eat for two’ end up gaining an excessive amount of weight.”

How Much Nutrients

According to the article, you should increase the amount of certain nutrients. However, you need only about 300 more calories per day. Redfern says this is about the equivalent of “one slice of whole grain bread and one tablespoon of peanut butter.”

You increase your risk of gestational diabetes, backaches, high blood pressure, and other health problems for you and your baby, if you put on too much weight during pregnancy.

My Healthy Definition

My definition of eating healthier means cutting back on the sugary, salty snacks and eliminating soft drinks. You can add fruits that are naturally sweet like grapes, strawberries or cherries to your meals. 

The American Pregnancy Association recommends maintaining a diet of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and dairy products with the recommended dietary allowance of vitamins and minerals for proper reproductive functioning.

You should begin making healthy nutrition changes 3 months to a year before you conceive (Source: American Pregnancy Association) . Evidence shows that healthy nutrition and fertility is linked in both men and women. My translation: get your husband on board when you begin your nutritional journey.

You may not be pregnant yet, but you can start today eating as if you are carrying a child in your womb. The most important thing is to stay healthy so that you can deliver a healthy baby!

Emotional Health Tips For Your Pregnancy Over 35

By June 22, 2019 Uncategorized

Update: Pregnancy Over 35 and 40 Good News Live Support is open for Fall 2019! 

If you’re a first time expectant mother over 35 or over 40, sometimes— finding emotional support for your pregnancy can be as be as challenging as finding an American teenager who doesn’t own a cell phone!

The first words out of your doctor’s mouth upon confirming your pregnancy may not be congratulations but may be monologue filled with negative statistics about pregnancy after 35 which show an increased risk of high blood pressure, diabetes, cesarean birth and chromosomal defects. Or your doctor may suggest a series of tests available to older expectant moms or ask if your pregnancy was planned.

Unfortunately, this insensitiveness for pregnancy after 35 is not limited to some in the medical community. You may be hit with a variety of comments saying you’re too old to give birth or that you should consider your age when your baby goes to first- grade, becomes a teenager, gets married and so forth.  These comments can come from well-meaning relatives to friends to strangers.

How do you handle so much negativity during a time when you are most vulnerable?

1-Realize Pregnancy Hormones Are At Work

The first tip is to remember your pregnant body is undergoing hormone changes which not only affect you physically, but emotionally as well.

Translation: Comments you wouldn’t have given a second thought during your pre-pregnancy state can make you sad or angry during pregnancy. This is true whether you are an expectant mom age 22 or age 42.

Choose your thoughts wisely. Like a gardener who pulls the weeds out of her flowerbed, pull the negative thoughts from your mind. Replace them through concentration on positive and uplifting thoughts.

2- Find Moms Who Have Been Through What You’re Going Through

Having a supportive friend, ideally one who is a first time mom over 35, you can talk to about your ups and downs will be invaluable during this time. There are also online groups of expectant moms over 35 and over 40. If the online groups don’t fit your style, establish your own or join our InSeason Mom group on Facebook. If you don’t like any of these choices, email me and I’ll give you encouragement!

3- Remember Medical Studies based on Group Not Individual Results

Medical studies citing the risk factors for pregnant women over 35 and 40 are based on the results of midlife pregnant women when studied as a group. The studies are not based on your individual health history. The truth is any pregnant woman of any age may experience high blood pressure, diabetes, cesarean birth and chromosomal defects.

According to Dr. Glade B. Curtis, author of Your Pregnancy After 35,  today, many healthcare professionals gauge pregnancy risk by a pregnant woman health status not her age.

4- Follow Doctor’s Orders

Make every effort to follow the advice of your doctor which should include getting plenty of rest, eating healthy, refraining from smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking anything that is toxic to your body or your unborn child.

5- Embrace Mental and Spiritual Health

“People run their mouth” is one of my husband’s favorite sayings, which means everyone has an opinion. Opinions are not necessarily truth.

When well-meaning folks cite how old you will be when your baby enters first grade or goes to college, ask them how old you will be in the same length of time if you didn’t give birth. Hopefully, they’ll get the point. We grow older regardless if we pursue motherhood in our late 30s or 40s. Therefore, it’s important to make our lives count by pursuing our goals. Personally, I believe the adage, “Your life is a gift from God, what you do with it is your gift back to Him.”

Jill Jonas-First Time Mom Over 35 After Wrong Diagnosis

By April 20, 2019 Blog, Featured Home, Featured Moms, Getting Pregnant After 35 and 40, Popular Posts, Uncategorized

Name: Jill Jonas

Age when you gave birth: 36

Child’s name : Dean

Current or former profession(s): I have worked abroad quite a bit (Egypt, Dubai, Mexico) and international business is my career passion. Since living in New York, I work for a medical device company.

PREGNANCY

How long were you trying to get pregnant? 

We were very fortunate and got pregnant right away in the first month we tried. We decided to try for a late spring/summer birth month and voilá! I thought it would take a couple of months at least.

However, it wasn’t completely smooth sailing at the beginning. We had two doctors tell us we weren’t pregnant and that we’d had a chemical pregnancy! Although I knew something was happening, we were in limbo for about two weeks. Finally, the HGC blood test (it test your levels 48 hours apart) results came back. My levels were rising nicely. Okay, I thought to myself, so we ARE pregnant and then glorious 9 months followed.

What did you do or not do to increase your chances of getting pregnant after 35?

We did not take my age into consideration when we were trying to conceive. It was pretty simple – I knew my cycle and we had a time frame to try. What we did not do is stress.

On another note: When I thought that we had a chemical pregnancy, it opened my eyes to how much time and effort getting pregnant could really take, as well as the emotions involved. I am very grateful to have had this realization. It makes me appreciate Dean even more.

SUPPORT

Medical Community

How supportive were your doctors during your pregnancy?

My doctor is the one who joked with me about the AMA(advanced maternal age) he had to put after my name on my charts. He said, “for NYC you’re a baby”. So, that’s very supportive, I guess!

Did you change doctors or would like to have changed doctors? Why or why not?

I changed doctors before we conceived. I was not happy with other OBGYN’s I had gone to previously in the city. My GP (general practitioner) recommended Dr. Andrew Scheinfeld and he only takes patients who are pregnant or trying. He is an expert at pregnancy and delivering babies – which is what I wanted and what I got!

Family and Friends

What was the reaction of friends and family when you told me about your pregnancy?

My in-laws were elated and surprised. We put t-shirts on our niece and nephew with the words “number one cousins” on the front with our due date on the back. It took them a while and a little encouragement to realize what those shirts meant. Once they realized what it meant, they were ecstatic. Nothing was ever said about my age.

Jill & Baby-3

When we surprised my mother, I learned something that day. She came to New York (I’m from St Louis and that’s where most of my family lives) to visit and to celebrate her birthday with Josh (my husband) and me.  When we decided to tell her the news,  I made her a birthday cake and wrote “#1 Grandma” on it. We walked out and presented her with the cake. She was so surprised, but then noticed what was written on top.

She thought we were making fun of her age and just calling her a grandma! It turns out she wasn’t expecting me to have children.  She thought I was just focused on career and other things. Once she realized that I was pregnant, she teared up and was so happy. Even though she wanted grandchildren very much, she did not burden me with that pressure. and I am very thankful for that. I am even more thankful that she is now a Grandmother, Grammy T!

On another note, anyone who has children later in life risks losing someone close to them before it can happen. I lost my father 3 years ago to cancer. Every day I think about how he would be as a grandfather, but it wasn’t meant to be. He never put any pressure on me to have children, either. I’m sure that if he had seen “Grandpa” on his cake, I would have learned something that day, too.

Labor and Delivery

What do you remember most about the birth experience?

Luckily I remember everything. I’m not THAT old! Since we did not know the gender, the best part was hearing, “it’s a boy” and then seeing this amazing little boy held before us, behind the clear curtain. I had a gentle C- section. Dean was breech for almost the entire pregnancy. My husband and I felt like we already knew the little guy the moment we laid eyes on him!

 I AM MOM 

What concerns you most about being a mom over 35 and how do you address these concerns?

Having a second child. I don’t think I will have time to mentally prepare for that, before it is a little too late. Another concern is one that any parent has, being around for them as long as possible.  This motivates me to stay fit and healthy.

What do you enjoy most about being an older mom?

I’m just enjoying being a mom! You cannot truly describe the feelings it brings or the experience with words. It’s the best thing I have ever had the privilege to do.

How has becoming a mom changed you?

Everything has a bit more meaning. Also, I’m much better utilizing the time that I have everyday. It’s hard to procrastinate these days!

What advice do you have for women considering motherhood after 35?

Don’t read (focus) too much into what you read about– articles like if it is the best time for you to try for a family or to add to your family. Do it your way and don’t let anyone tell you how you should feel or what you should fear.

Natural Pregnancy for First Time Mom/Mum Over 40

By February 3, 2019 Blog, Featured Moms, First-Time Expectant Mom Over 40, Uncategorized

In this interview, first time mum/mom over 40 Natalie (pictured above with her son) of the UK shares why natural pregnancy was the only option for her and her husband.

THE JOURNEY TO PREGNANCY

What did you do or not do to increase your chances of getting pregnant after 40?

I was on the contraceptive pill from the age of 17. I never had a break from it; I was on it continuously. I stopped taking the contraceptive pill in March 2016 and fell pregnant just over a year later in April 2017.

I have many friends who have had trouble falling pregnant or staying pregnant, and friends who have had IVF treatment. My husband and I knew from the word go that if it did not happen for us naturally, then we would not go down the IVF route. We felt it (the IVF route) was physically and mentally draining. We also didn’t want to become one of those couples who obsess about getting pregnant. We were determined to not let it take over our lives, or indeed, our sex lives as we felt it then becomes unhealthy.

After 9 months of not being on the contraceptive pill and no sign of pregnancy, I decided to book an appointment at my doctors,
something I had not done before, to at least see if I was fertile. It should be noted that my husband had a fertility test prior to me coming off the pill. We felt that if he wasn’t fertile, then there was not point in us trying. For some, this may seem very black and white, but every couple has their limitations and starting points. I suppose for us, that was ours. My husband’s sperm count was normal.

In the UK, some fertility treatment before the age of 40, is free on our National Health Service however, over the age of 40, it is not. This was pointed out to me when I visited the doctor and I explained that that was fine as I wouldn’t want to go down that route any way. So in January 2017, I engaged in a series of initial routine fertility tests and it was at the very last one, which involved an internal examination. The nurse asked me the date of my last period? I said, ” the 21st March”. She nearly fell off her chair as it was the 2nd May at this point! She suggested I go take a pregnancy test. So I did. It was positive!

SUPPORT DURING PREGNANCY

First Time Mom Over 40 Natalie with son Ralph

Medical Community

How supportive were your doctors during your pregnancy?

The doctors I saw during my pregnancy were extremely supportive. I did ask to not see a particular doctor again during a routine check-up as I found her manner somewhat condescending and a little rude. This was not a problem and I was assigned a fabulous doctor who stayed with me throughout my pregnancy and postnatal too.

In the UK, there is a schedule of midwife appointments you have to attend throughout your entire pregnancy. Every midwife I saw was absolutely brilliant, supportive, knowledgeable and offered excellent advice. Due to my age, I had additional appointments including one with a consultant to monitor me and my baby. He was supportive and always answered the questions we had. I felt that me and my baby were very cared for.

Family and Friends

What was the reaction of friends and family when you told them about your pregnancy?

It’s probably a slight understatement to say that my friends and family were shocked when I told them I was pregnant. No one knew we were even trying to conceive or that I had had a series of tests done. I never wanted the added pressure of people asking me “how things were going” on the pregnancy/baby-making front. Plus I think it is a very private matter and not one up for discussion! In addition, most people who know me thought I never wanted children, so I think that added to the total surprise when I told them I was!!

I only told my bestest friends and our parents after our 12 week scan, and then they were sworn to secrecy. We only really started telling people when I started to show around 5 months. One set of friends saw me at a wedding when I was 6 months pregnant and didn’t even notice!

LABOR AND DELIVERY EXPERIENCE

What do you remember most about the birth experience?

First Time Mom Over 40 Natalie in pool with baby Ralph

I had the most amazing pregnancy. I kept fit, went running, walked my dog and I even rode my horse up until 10 days before I gave birth! On New Year’s Eve, 2017, I had a ‘show’ at 10.30am. I made my husband come with me to the stables to muck out my horse before my waters broke or the contractions started.

Long story short, around 6pm, my contractions started kicking in and over the course of about 3 hours. l managed to go 8 centimeters dilated at home with no pain relief. When we got to the hospital and the midwife checked me, they whisked me off to a birthing room. They got the birthing pool ready, as that was my wish, to have my baby in a birthing pool.

All seemed to be going well and I was coping really well and managing the pain. However, sadly when my waters did finally break, it was in the birthing pool. The midwife noticed the water had gone a greenly color meaning that my baby had excreted inside me. So I had to get out of the pool.

Over the course of another 12 hours (I’d opted for an epidural after a couple more hours), I only managed to go another 1.5 centimeters dilated. They discovered that my baby was actually back-to-back with his chin up and not tucked in. Around 9.00am on New Year’s Day, a consultant came to speak to me and my husband about our options. It seemed very likely that I would need an emergency C-section.

I’m not going to lie, that was my worst fear, and me and my husband sobbed whilst we digested the information we were given and the risks that were involved. Ralph was born by C-section at 11.25am. I don’t remember much about it as they had to sedate me quite heavily to stitch me back up as my stomach muscles were so tight. Nevertheless, he was out safely!

I’M A MUM/MOM!

Do you have any concerns about being a mom over 40? If so, how do you address these concerns?

First Time Mom Over 40 Natalie reading to son Ralph

Honestly, no! I don’t have any concerns about being a mum over 40, as I feel I have so much to offer my son BECAUSE I am over 40.

What do you enjoy most about being a first time mom over 40?

I feel so lucky to have a gorgeous son. I realize now that children are the greatest gift of all. I feel that because I had my son later in life, I have been able to live my life to the full up until this point. And, he is the next, most remarkable chapter!

I have had 4 different careers up until I had him. I feel I would not have been able to do if I’d have had him when I was younger. I feel more financially stable, more confident, mature and feel quite happy ‘winging’ motherhood. Ralph is so much fun and we have the best time doing lots of different things: meeting other mums and babies, attending baby groups and classes, experiencing things I never knew I would. It’s great!

How has becoming a mom changed you?

I think if you asked my family and close friends how becoming a mum has changed me, they would definitely say it has had a calming effect on me. Whilst Ralph and I are always out doing something or as a family (including our pets) we’re always busy. I’m definitely not as wild or as manic as I used to be. Having children definitely makes you put things into perspective and makes you focus on the really important things in life.

Also, as I had post-natal depression, I think I really appreciate everything I have and everyone who supported me and my family unit during that dark time. And weirdly, since becoming a mum, I love my husband even more than I did before. He is so supportive and is a wonderful father to our son.

BECOMING A MUM/MOM AFTER 40 ADVICE

What advice do you have for women considering motherhood after 40?

If you wish to ‘live your years’ before having children, then I see no problem with having a baby over 40, as long as you are fit and healthy. And as they say, age is merely a number!

I know I would never have been up to the job if I had done it when I was younger. As an older mum, I feel more confident in the decisions I have to make as they are based on experience and wisdom.

I may have had 4 different careers but this, this is the best job ever!
