Home Pregnancy Over 40


After years of struggling with infertility and miscarriage,

I finally conceived my daughter. I had a perfectly normal pregnancy and a perfectly normal delivery at the age of 44. But I have to admit, I was scared out of my mind. I guess I was overeducated on the subject of "pregnancy over 40" because, at the time I believed all these terrible things were going to happen to me.

There's so much negative information about getting pregnant over the age of 40

Unfortunately, there is so much negative information out there that I was sure I was going to have gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, premature delivery or a c-section. Even if my pregnancy made it all the way through, I was petrified of having a baby with chromosomal abnormalities, birth defects, or some other horrific abnormality. Isn't that a shame? I spent so many years trying to get pregnant and when I finally succeeded, I was gripped with terror the entire time. My well-meaning doctors and other healthcare professionals didn't help matters either. I had numerous ultrasounds, consultations with perinatologists, and I was monitored to no end! As hard as they tried, they just couldn't find anything wrong.
Much to everyone's surprise, I was just another normal pregnant women who just happened to be 44! The moral of the story? Be as healthy as you can be. Getting pregnant over the age of 40, can be a perfectly normal and healthy experience. As a matter of fact, women over 40 who get pregnant at a healthy weight and with a healthy lifestyle really don't have that many more complications than younger women. Since writing my book and researching the subject of "pregnancy over 40" I have come across numerous articles, and success stories about women conceiving naturally over 40 and even 50. Does it take older women longer to get pregnant? Yes, it probably does, but it's not impossible.

Many Women Get Pregnant Over 40 By surprise

May women over the age of 40 have been so conditioned by the media to think they are infertile at their age. They don't think they need birth control anymore and they get pregnant by surprise. Sadly, many of these pregnancies are terminated because they were unexpected. The rate of unexpected pregnancies in women over the age of 40 is second only to teenagers! This should be encouraging if you're trying to conceive over 40. The same good advice applies to women of all ages. Eat well, watch your weight, drink lots of water, and get plenty of rest. Oh, by the way, be careful what you read!
