She hadn't had a period in 2 years, had never been pregnant, never had morning sickness or any of the other pregnancy symptoms.

She had just found out in August that she was pregnant.

Just goes to show you that miracles happen on a daily basis.

Green Tea in the Woman's World -Green Tea and FertilityGreen Tea in the Woman's World -Green Tea and Fertility
-- Water is the number one drink in the world, but tea is the second most popular. At the rate that green tea is going, it may become the most often drunk of all the teas.

The antioxidants that green tea provides have helped increase the popularity of green tea in North America and around the world.

New studies of the medicinal benefits of green tea and a focus in American society on being healthier and fighting obesity has led to a surge in popularity of green tea.

In addition, the aging baby boomers are focusing on being healthy later in life and looking for ways to prevent common health problems like heart disease and cancer.

Today the question is: what is green tea’s role in the woman’s world? What does green tea do for fertility levels?

Should a pregnant woman drink more green tea in order to be healthier during the term of the pregnancy? What about when she is breastfeeding?

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.

  1. Funny Old World....

    I am 46.5 months and 5 weeks pregnant.

    I had my first child at 42 conceived naturally at 41, and after 6 months wanted to try again as soon as I could....

    Well after consulting all sorts of specialists, both medical and different alternative practitioners, when I did not get pregnant after 6 months, I gave up on any treatment and then went on to I conceive naturally at 44 but miscarried at 7 weeks then at 45 I conceived but again miscarried at 7 weeks.

    Both miscarriages, were heartbreaking, painful emotionally and physically. Then as I turned 46, I began to face the reality of just having the one gorgeous little boy, who starts school in Spetember 2012, as I let go I began to feel the freedom that him starting school would give me and I let go.... let go of wanting something desperately, let go of the longing and was very grateful for all I had.

    But looks like nature has the last laugh, pregnant at 46 !!!! Ok I have a long way to go, but my symptoms are very strong and I felt them before I had even noticed I had missed my period and I have a very strange feeling that this one may be here to stay!

    Will let you know how it goes - either way life does not ever fail to amaze me and remind me that science and medicine really do not have all the answers, there is still a power greater and stronger than we comprehend.
