TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: The Infertility Cure: The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies, by Randine Lewis. Published: Little, Brown and Company (December 14, 2008)The Infertility Cure:
The Ancient Chinese Wellness Program for Getting Pregnant and Having Healthy Babies
by Randine Lewis
 -- Infertility affects one out of six couples today. Dr. Lewis presents a groundbreaking alternative approach to infertility, explaining how she used traditional Chinese medicine to treat her own infertility, successfully conceiving and giving birth to two children.

In Lewis's experience, women who have undergone three to six months of the dietary changes, herbs and acupuncture treatments become pregnant with no further effort. Lewis intersperses her somewhat technical examination of the program with anecdotes about her patients, weaving in discussions on diet, herbal supplements, acupuncture, older women and problems related to infertility.

Image: Baby's Summer Smile, by Anita Peppers, on MorgueFileI just discovered this website. It's wonderful!

I am nearly 50 years old, and trying for a baby.

I already have two miracle children; a 21 year old daughter conceived with my almost infertile first husband and a 4 year old daughter born when I was 45 years old, and my second husband 48 years old.

Both were conceived without any assistance. Most of my friends and all of my family think I should leave it at this, but inside I feel 'unfinished'. I still have hope, though in the last 3 1/2 years of trying I only got pregnant once, and miscarried at 10 weeks.

I started to feel really lonely when people became more pessimistic and negative. Even my doctor is now against us even trying (she says it could endanger my health, which I don't believe), so I don't mention it anymore.

I hope to surprise her one day! I'm looking forward to reading everyone's stories.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Infertility Inferschmility, by Aprill Fasino Lane. Published: Fountain Blue Publishing (December 7, 2013)Infertility Inferschmility
by Aprill Fasino Lane
 -- This book takes you along with Aprill while she and her husband battle infertility. The facts, the joys, the disappointments, the treatments, the emotions, and the outcomes. You will cry. You will laugh. You will cheer. You may find answers. You will be amazed at the amount of information that is contained in this book.

We're on our 3rd round of IVF. We have been waiting since our miscarriage in February to get started. Currently, I am on birth control to get my body ready to produce lots and lots of eggs. I have no problems producing eggs. As my AMAZING Doctor once said “She puts my other patients to shame.” Maybe when people make condescending comments I should fire back “Please, you can only produce one egg a month. I can produce 20. Top that.” 


On June 9th, I will start Lupron injections. Lupron basically induces menopause. The goal is to stimulate my ovaries to produce a lot of eggs. What we don't want is for my body to naturally ovulate and release the eggs on its own. That's where Lupron comes in. It prevents my body from releasing the eggs. On June 25th (yes, my birthday and the one year anniversary of Michael Jackson's death) I will start Gonal-f injections. Gonal-f will be my friend for about 12 days. After that, it's egg retrieval and embryo transfer time. I'll explain all of this in detail as time goes on.

Image: newborn holding mom's finger, on MorgueFileChild-bearing beyond age 50: pregnancy outcome in 59 cases "a concern?".

OBJECTIVE: To study maternal and perinatal outcomes in healthy women aged 50 years and older.

METHOD: This study was of 59 clinical pregnancies, of which 10 ended in first trimester spontaneous miscarriage (and were excluded from further studies) and 58 live births. This retrospective review of 58 live births in 49 essentially healthy women (mean [SE] age, [52+/-2.5] years; range 50-55 years), with no chronic medical conditions (of which 28 were primigravids). Pregnancy outcomes were ascertained by chart review and telephone follow-up.

RESULTS: Of the 58 live births, 41 were singletons, and 7 were twins, and 1 triplet, for which the mean+/-SE gestational age at delivery were 38.1 weeks +/-0.4, 36.2 weeks +/-0.1 and 34.1 weeks respectively. Birth weights (mean +/- SE) were 3,201 g+/-10, 2,252 g+/-4 and 1,998+/-95 g respectively. Mean Apgar score +/- SE at 1 and 5 min were 9.2+/-0.8 and 8.8+/-0.6 respectively.

Total cesarean deliveries were 73% (36/49). Of singletons 68% (28) were delivered by cesarean section as were all multiples. The incidence of pre-eclampsia was 30.6%: mild pre-eclampsia 20.4% (10/49), severe pre-eclampsia 10.2% (5/49). Gestational diabetes required insulin in all 19.5% of women. Anemia was noted in 6.5%.

CONCLUSIONS: Appropriately screened women, aged 50 years or older, can deliver successfully. During pregnancy, they appear to be at increased risk of pre-eclampsia and gestational diabetes. A significant majority can expect to deliver via cesarean.

by Elizabeth Swire-Falker
 -- After seven years of tests and more tests, treatments and more treatments, Elizabeth Swire-Falker understands what it means to struggle with infertility. In this frank, reassuring, and thoroughly researched handbook, she shares her own personal experience and offers insight into what challenges to expect along the way-from getting support to finding the right doctor to dealing with insurance.

She gave up her career in the process when she found she couldn't struggle with infertility and maintain a high-powered job at the same time. The years were filled with injections and blood tests and hormones and in vitro fertilizations, implantations, and miscarriages, and return trips to the assisted reproductive technology lab.

Imge: Three boys struggle to retrieve their ball from the sea down at Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco, by Ken Banks (kiwanja), on Flickr
Just in case you need an encouraging word, no, you are not too old!!

I am 48 years old and have three sons: 10, 9, and 5 years old.

So, I was 43 years old when the youngest was born.

All three were high risk because of my age, and had scarey numbers, but we opted not to have amniocentesis done for any of them.

The only thing wrong with any of them is that they are WILD, messy, bug-eating, noisy boys!!

They were all born via C-section after unproductive labors; otherwise, everything was just fine.

If your age is your worry, I hope you'll think of this old geezer with YOUNG children who are healthy enough to drive her crazy!!

I'm the oldest of eight children!

I'm 28 years old, and my little brother just turned 6 years old.

My mom was almost 45 years old, when he was born.

Although she said it was her hardest delivery, it was her easiest pregnancy.
(Start to finish her delivery was only 4 hours so...) 

Although I'm nervous to have children after 35, it isn't the health issues that scare me - it's that they will out run me when they are teenagers!

I'd say GO FOR IT!!!

Image: Her Choice, by Barbara Raghavan. Published: Barbara Raghavan (July 23, 2014)Her Choice
by Barbara Raghavan
 -- What should a fifty-year-old woman do when she gets pregnant?
Any decision which she may take will result in unwanted repercussions.
But what does her husband want? Her daughter? The priest?

Isn't there a secret joy and hope that the pregnancy will satisfy some of the maternal instincts which had been lying dormant?

But DOES IT MATTER WHAT SHE WANTS?

Will the fact that Asha is an Indian woman living in Ireland make a difference to her decision?
Whichever decision she will take may be wrong or ... wrong.

It is about life: full of surprises, crazy decisions and finally an unexpected turn of events.
There is a taste of Irish realities and Indian tradition and culture.
Humorous linguistic situations are enriched by the presence of Maria from Poland.

by Lori Shandle-Fox

--Laughing IS Conceivable is "One Woman's Extremely Funny Peek into the Extremely Unfunny World of Infertility."

What happens when a professional humor writer and former stand-up comic goes through months and months of fertility treatments? She uses her comedy background to help her cope with it all of course.

Laughing IS Conceivable was almost entirely written while the author was in the trenches going through IUI and IVF right alongside the reader... uncertain of the outcome. It uses humor to de-stress infertility sufferers, their families and medical teams.

It's relief for those who feel they just can't deal with infertility one minute more and that nobody truly understands.

It's a fun and cheap gift for those friends and relatives who still don't .

It's a glimpse over the reception desk and at the other end of the examination table for medical professionals and their staffs who meet and treat infertile patients every day.

I am from a family of nine children. My mom had her last one at 44 years old.

I loved having lots of siblings, but that's my experience.

If I had no siblings, and that was all I knew - then I'm sure I would have loved that experience too.

But my parents chose to have many children, and brought me into this world.

TODAY'S BOOK SUGGESTION:
Image: Motherhoodwinked - An Infertility Memoir, by Anne-Marie Scully. Publisher: Orchard Wall Publishing (June 10, 2014)Motherhoodwinked: An Infertility Memoir
by Anne-Marie Scully

-- Born in 1981, shortly after the first IVF baby, Anne-Marie Scully grew up in a world where infertility is a problem everyone assumes can be fixed.

Named for the frustration Anne-Marie felt when realizing that becoming a mother was not a given and that IVF was not a guaranteed 'Plan B', Motherhoodwinked documents the pain and the shame of life as an infertile woman.

But Motherhoodwinked is more than just another trying to conceive memoir, it is an important social commentary on the impact infertility has on the lives of those going through it and how the modern digital age has both helped and hindered the journey.

With heartbreaking honesty Anne-Marie takes us on a journey from her initial optimism and excitement at finally trying for a baby and fulfilling her lifelong dream to become a mother, through to her increasingly complex pregnancy plan, her experiments with holistic therapies, the NaPro program and finally her experience with ICSI and IVF.

Sometimes sad, sometimes laugh out loud funny Motherhoodwinked offers both couples going through infertility and their support networks coping skills for how to survive this lonely journey, that actually affects one in six couples.

I am 45 years old, and just found out I am pregnant (approximately 6 weeks along).

I have an only, a vivacious, spunky 6 year old girl.

I struggled for the past six years to have another baby, because my first delivery was horrendous.

Long story short, I developed eclampsia after the delivery (emergency c-section) and almost stroked three days later.

My doctor was horrible, my husband can't even mention her name without using the word malpractice, but we won't go there.

Anyway you can only imagine the mental trauma I experienced.

I went to seek professional help, while this did cure me for a while, I still longed for my child to have a sibling.

My daughter is such a nurturing little girl, and what an amazing big sister she would be.

I decided to let fate take over. We enjoyed the usual once a week sex, (sorry guys, this was all I could muster), but viola... it happened!

I am so scared, my husband is not so happy, and I do feel a bit like a freak show, but it is not about me.

After what I went through, and with the best high risk doctors I can find, I can do this and we are going forward.

I wish you all the best through your journey.
