COQ10, FOLIC ACID TO PREVENT MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage, How Folic Acid and CoQ10 May Help Prevent Miscarriage and Lower Homocysteine


We all have heard the importance of folic acid to help prevent birth defects, but folic acid deficiency has also been associated with miscarriage. This article also talks about the importance of CoQ10.


From the site:

http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
Sacral Chakra Necklace with Carnelian stones
The following therapies may help to prevent miscarriage:

Folic Acid:

Rationale:

Women who are deficient in folic acid have up to three times the risk of miscarriage compared with non-deficient women.

One of the causes of miscarriage is elevated levels of the toxic amino acid, homocysteine. Folic acid reduces homocysteine levels.

Dosage:

400 – 800 mcg per day.



Selenium:

Rationale:

Several human studies have found that women who experience a miscarriage have significantly lower serum selenium levels compared with pregnant women who do not miscarry.

A study conducted on sheep found that selenium supplementation helped to prevent miscarriages.

Selenium’s protective effect against miscarriage is believed to occur via its antioxidant properties (especially its role in the generation of the enzyme glutathione peroxidase).

Dosage:

200 – 400 mcg per day.

Coenzyme Q10:

Rationale:

Two clinical studies have demonstrated that women with low plasma coenzyme Q10 levels have an increased incidence of miscarriage.

Dosage:

50 - 100 mg per day.

Vitamin B6:
SEE ALSO: INOSITOL FOR EGG QUALITY (getpregnantover40.com)

Rationale:

Elevated homocysteine levels increase the risk of miscarriage. Vitamin B6 supplementation helps to lower elevated homocysteine levels and may thereby reduce the risk of miscarriage.

Dosage:

50 – 250 mg per day.

5 THINGS TO DO AFTER MISCARRIAGE

How To Deal With Miscarriage Grief

Sometimes after a miscarriage, women don't really know what to do. You're left feeling very empty and a little lost.
For More On Dealing With Miscarriage, and how to have a memorial for your lost baby, click here 
 Here is an article about some things you can do and some steps you can take to aide in the healing process:

Create a Tangible Memory

It's often very difficult to move beyond an experience that has no tangible marker. If you've miscarried, there isn't a grave to visit or pictures of the baby to look at. Try to think of a tangible marker that will help you in your grief. You might want to create a memory book of your pregnancy. Maybe you want to plant a tree in your backyard where you can sit, in years to come, to think about the baby.

Take Care of Yourself

While grieving, it's important to pamper yourself and to remember to take care of your physical needs. Try to eat well, to exercise regularly and to get enough rest. Exercise can greatly help your emotional state and your energy level. While one woman might enjoy the calming effect of yoga, another will love the high energy of aerobics. Whatever you enjoy - do it and get out of the house!

Work on Gratitude

We all have areas of our lives that are depressing, and we all have areas that are wonderful. While grieving, it can be very helpful to focus on your gratitude. If you already have children, it's important to concentrate your energy on them and to be grateful for what you have. This doesn't diminish your grief, but it's very helpful to focus your energy on positive, concrete gratitude when you can. If you don't have children, try to focus your energy on other areas of your life where you are grateful. Try to keep a gratitude journal and write down things each day that you are grateful to

NITRATES IN PROCESSED FOODS, WATER, MAY CAUSE MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage and Processed Foods

I remember reading about how nitrates can be unhealthy to a developing fetus when I was pregnant. I totally avoided any type of processed meat (processed meats are preserved with nitrates).
 Also, depending on your location, well water may be contaminated with nitrates. Read more:

Therefore, if you choose to eat nitrate-containing foods, do so in a manner that minimizes the conversion. For example, you will want to avoid using bacon dripping for cooking, or frying processed ham. It just makes sense to avoid exposure to any potentially cancer-causing compounds

whenever possible, but most certainly when you are pregnant. 
See Also: Fooods For Fertility (www.getpregnantover40.com)

Although nitrates in some foods may not be a problem, high levels of nitrates in well water can be. Consuming well water contaminated with nitrates, chemicals or bacteria is particularly dangerous for pregnant women and young infants. There has been some evidence that well water contaminated with high levels of nitrates has caused miscarriages in some women.

STRESS IN PREGNANCY AND MISCARRIAGE

Pregnancy, Stress and Miscarriage

Here's another one...another article about how stress may affect pregnancy hormones leading to miscarriage.
 I know this topic has a lot of conflicting information...some sources say there's no connection between stress and miscarriage and other sources, like this one, connect the two. I'm a firm believer
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
in the mind-body connection. Control your stress levels if you're trying to conceive - numerous studies have shown that higher cortisol levels may be associated with miscarriage. Read more:

Arck monitored the progress of 864 pregnant women. She took blood samples at the start of their pregnancies, and asked them to fill in standard questionnaires to measure their own perceptions of stress.

See Also: Stress, Infertility and Miscarriage (www.getpregnantover40.com)

She found that the 55 women who miscarried were more likely to have reported stress than the others. And these women were also more likely to have had lower progesterone and lower PIBF levels, Arck told a meeting of the British Society for Endocrinology in London last week.

The results are not conclusive proof that stress increases the risk of miscarriage. "But it's bound to make it more scientifically plausible," says Alison Douglas of the University of Edinburgh in the UK, who chaired the conference session.

SPOTTING, BLEEDING, NOT ALWAYS MEANS MISCARRIAGE

Spotting, bleeding and miscarriage

When you find out you're pregnant and you start spotting it is horrifying!
 You automatically think the worst. Although spotting isn't necessarily a good sign, it certainly doesn't mean you are miscarrying or going to miscarry. 

Spotting during pregnancy can be caused by a number of things including implantation and infection. It could be a sign of something more serious so it's a good idea to have it checked out. But don't always expect the worst. Spotting during pregnancy can be quite common. I spotted for three months during my successful pregnancy which otherwise was completely normal.
 Reasons for spotting include:

http://getpregnantover40.com/miscarriage-memorial-jewelry.htm
Miscarriage Jewelry
Implantation bleeding.You may experience some normal spotting within the first six to 12 days after
you conceive as the fertilized egg implants itself in the lining of the uterus. Some women don't realize they are pregnant because they mistake this bleeding for a light period. Usually the bleeding is very light and lasts from a few hours to a few days.

Miscarriage:  Because miscarriage is most common during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, it tends to be one of the biggest concerns with first trimester bleeding. About half of women who bleed in pregnancy eventually miscarry, but that doesn't necessarily mean that if you're bleeding you've lost the baby, especially if you don't have any other symptoms.

BEYONCE TALKS OF MISCARRIAGE AND NEW TWIN PREGNANCY

I have always said, "Miscarriage knows no boundaries".  Even the rich and famous who supposedly have it all can suffer from miscarriage and recurrent miscarriage.  One of the most famous singers in the world has announced her twin pregnancy, but she also spoke of her miscarriage.  Read more:

“Being pregnant was very much like falling in love,” she said about her first pregnancy. “You are so open. You are so overjoyed. There’s no words that can express having a baby growing inside of you, so of course you want to scream it out and tell everyone.”
But before she could share the good news, the singer had complications in the early stages. “I flew back to New York to get my check up – and no heartbeat,” she said. “Literally the week before I went to the doctor, everything was fine, but there was no heartbeat.”
This led the singer to go into the studio and write “the saddest song I’ve ever written in my life.”

TOXIC ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICALS AND MISCARRIAGE

Toxic Chemicals and Miscarriage

With the holiday season here, many people have company and spend quite of bit of time cleaning and tidying up.  I didn't do a lot of cleaning in my first trimester since I was so nauseated day and night.  When I was pregnant with my daughter, my sense of smell was incredibly heightened.  The smell of any type of cleaner or any scent that was added to "freshening" products absolutely turned my stomach.
See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on environmental toxins and fertility and miscarriage 
 I believe this was my body's way of telling me to stay away from harmful and possibly toxic substances.  Everything from cosmetics to cleaning products were a problem for me.  I ended up using a lot of baking soda and vinegar to clean and I used unscented lotion.

Some basic household cleaners could lead to pregnancy problems or miscarriage

 I frequently turned to "The March of Dimes" for information on Pregnancy and Miscarriage.  They are an objective source of factual information. Here is a good resource on environmental toxins and how they may affect your pregnancy:



This article has information on everything from mercury exposure, chlorinated water, lead, metals, solvents and pesticides. Sometimes we are unknowingly exposed to substances which may harm an unborn baby or even lead to miscarriage. We probably can't completely eliminate these toxins from our environment, but at least we can minimize our exposure.

From the article:

http://getpregnantover40.com/miscarriage-memorial-jewelry.htm
"Until I see you again" Miscarriage Necklace
Do household cleaning products pose a risk in pregnancy?
While some household cleansers contain solvents, there are many safe alternatives. Pregnant women should read labels carefully and avoid products (such as some oven cleaners) whose labels indicate they’re toxic.

Products that contain ammonia or chlorine are unlikely to harm an unborn baby, though their odors may trigger nausea in a pregnant woman. A pregnant woman should open windows and doors wear rubber gloves when using these products. She should never mix ammonia and chlorine products because the combination produces fumes that are dangerous for anyone.

A pregnant woman who is worried about commercial cleansers or bothered by their odors can substitute safe, natural products. For example, baking soda can be used as a powdered cleanser to scrub greasy areas, pots and pans, sinks, tubs and ovens. A solution of vinegar and water can effectively clean many surfaces such as countertops.

SOME MISCARRIAGES CAN BE PREVENTED

Some Miscarriages Can Be Prevented

It seems like all we hear about or talk about is the danger signals in pregnancy and impending miscarriage.
Well, not all pregnancies miscarry even when there are danger signals. Here is a story about a woman who was told she would most likely miscarry, but with a little luck and a little treatment, she carried to term and realized her dream.
Odom heads a program - called pregnancy loss evaluation and prevention at St. Joseph's/Candler Telfair Reproductive Center - that specializes in preventing "preventable" miscarriages.

The program's goal is not to prevent miscarriages that are the result of chromosomal abnormalities, but those that could, with some medical intervention, have resulted in healthy babies.

Stefanie had started going to Odom, a reproductive endocrinologist, because of the difficulties she had becoming pregnant. She believes divine guidance led her to his specialized practice since the threat of miscarriage turned out to be more of a problem.

See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage prevention and having a healthy pregnancy 

 Stefanie recalls asking Odom what the chances were the pregnancy would continue. He sadly held up his hand, indicating maybe five pregnancies with hormone levels like hers had been successful in his
http://getpregnantover40.com/chakras-for-fertility.htm
20 or so years of practice.

Even Stefanie's medical paperwork didn't give much hope. It was filled out to indicate the most likely outcome: "spontaneous abortion" the medical term for miscarriage.

Odom advised the Reeders to cancel their travel plans that weekend and told them the signs of a miscarriage. He also told the Reeders he would pray for them. They asked loved ones to do the same.

That night Stefanie did what she had done since finding out she was pregnant. She read "Goodnight Moon" aloud to her unborn baby.

Sean put his hand on Stefanie's belly and prayed.

"We decided this is our baby as long as he's with us," Stefanie said.

Stefanie and Sean knew that medically speaking, their baby didn't have much chance. But they hoped God had other plans.

Turned out, He did.

WHAT IS A VANISHING TWIN?

Pregnancy Loss and Vanishing Twin

I recall hearing the phrase "vanishing twin" from my fertility doctor.
 Although I lost a twin pregnancy, I never experience this particular syndrome (although I know a women who had some fluctuating HcG levels and they suspected that her pregnancy may have started with two but spontaneously reduced down to one.) Here is an article that explains more:



From the article:
  Experts currently estimate that one-eighth of pregnancies begin as twins. But of course, the percentage of pregnancies that make it to term is smaller. Fertility specialist Dr. Carolyn Givens of
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Click here for fertility bracelets
the Pacific Fertility Center estimates that between 15 and 20 percent of all twin pregnancies will miscarry one fetus. "That's what happens what happens with a vanishing twin," she says, "You have an early miscarriage of the twin." Those estimates are supported by a 1986 sonogram study of 1,000 pregnancies. Exactly 21.9 percent of the women carrying twins in the first trimester experienced a "vanishing twin" event. 


See Also: Are You More Fertile After A Miscarriage (www.getpregnantover40.com) 

Due to the increased use of fertility drugs and assisted fertility techniques like in vitro fertilization, there's been a spike in multiple pregnancies and an accompanying rise in early gestation ultrasounds, so what used to be an almost unheard of phenomenon is rapidly becoming a hot topic among mothers.

What Happens?

When our twin disappeared, I found myself wondering if I'd done something wrong to cause the embryo to die. Did I sleep in the wrong side? Inhale someone's second-hand smoke? Lug my heavy one-year-old daughter around too much? The fact is that most of the time a twin vanishes during the first trimester for the same reason a single baby miscarries: There's a fatal genetic problem with the embryo and it couldn't continue developing into a full-fledged fetus. Dr. Givens explains, "This usually happens within the first eight weeks because that's when the organs form, and if there's a problem, this is when it will occur. If there's a chromosomal problem, some important gene doesn't turn on or do what it's supposed to do and the heart will stop developing."

7 Miracle Foods That Help Prevent Miscarriages

7 Miracle Foods That Help Prevent Miscarriages

By Jamie R Cocco-Dunkleberger

There are two common reasons believed to cause a miscarriage. The first is the health of the embryo. If the embryo was damaged at some point in the process of traveling it may not have been able to grow into a healthy fetus. The second is the embryo living in an unhealthy environment that didn't foster healthy development. There are other causes of miscarriages including progesterone deficiencies, chromosomal abnormalities and immune abnormalities. These problems are caused by something and don't just occur for no reason. Case in point is that you need to be healthy in order to be fertile. By eating certain foods you are providing your body with the nutrients it needs to foster the healthy development of an embryo that will implant successfully.

 

SEE ALSO: FOODS FOR FERTILITY AND PREGNANCY SERIES (getpregnantover40.com) 


Eat Lean Meats
Lean meats are very high in zinc which sustains a healthy reproductive system. If you have a zinc deficiency it can prevent your body from sustaining a pregnancy. Lean meats give your body the right amount of zinc needed to maintain your good health and a strong reproductive system.
Egg Yolk
Egg yolk is rich in zinc and vitamin B6. Vitamin B6 helps foster healthy implantation and is a natural progesterone booster. It also contains high levels of zinc which is needed to maintain a pregnancy in women and producing healthy swimmers in men.
Whole Grains
Whole grains are also high in zinc which, again, is needed to sustain a pregnancy and keep the reproductive system healthy. Make sure that at least half of your servings of whole grains are 100% whole grains as they are much better for your overall health. They are also high in fiber which gets rid of toxins and excess hormones in your body as well as keeping your blood sugar levels within a healthy range.

Drink Plenty of Water
It is essential to drink at least half your weight in ounces of water per day. Not only does it replenish water lost keeping you hydrated, it also provides your body with the most important element to function properly. By drinking half your weight in ounces of water (for example: if you weigh 140 pounds you would need to drink at least 70 ounces of water per day) you are ensuring that your body stays hydrated fostering healthy egg development.
Nuts and Seeds and Dark Leafy Green Vegetables
Nuts and seeds and dark leafy green vegetables provide your body with progesterone, a hormone that is necessary to sustain a healthy pregnancy. They contain vitamin B6 which helps with implantation and naturally increases progesterone levels in the body.
Cold Water Fish
Eating cold water fish such as cod, salmon and halibut provide your body with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin A. These vitamins and nutrients help foster regular menstrual cycles, increases hormone production and reduces inflammation making conception and implantation more successful.
Organic Fruits and Vegetables
The lining of your uterus needs to be extremely strong and thick. This is the most crucial element in trying to get pregnant and maintain your pregnancy. If the connective tissue inside your uterus is weak, the embryo will not be able to attach itself or stay attached to your uterus. Vitamin C is a key component in strengthening blood vessels and connective tissue found in your uterus. Eating organic fruits and vegetables provide your body with the vitamin C and folic acid it needs to nurture a healthy pregnancy and successful implantation.
7 Dangerous Foods to Avoid:
Unpasteurized Cheese and Milk
Eating unpasteurized cheese and milk is extremely dangerous regardless of whether you are trying to conceive. There are many diseases that can be contracted which can cause a wide variety of dangerous illnesses including death. Only drink pasteurized milk and eat cheese that has been pasteurized to prevent contracting dangerous illnesses.
Raw Meat
There is no question that consuming raw meat can be dangerous. You can contract several different illnesses include salmonella, toxoplasmosis and listeria. All of these illnesses can cause a miscarriage. Make sure your meat is thoroughly cooked and stay away from raw fish such as sushi.
Caffeine
Caffeine in excess can severely hinder appropriate growth and maturation of your eggs. It can also cause hormone imbalances that are detrimental to getting pregnant and maintaining your pregnancy. Do not consume more than 200mg's of caffeine of day which is equivalent to two cups of coffee per day.
Non-Organic Fruits and Vegetables
Stay away from fruits and vegetables that are not considered organic. Non-organic fruits and vegetables contain pesticides and herbicides that negative impact the growth of healthy eggs and successful implantation.
Deep Sea Fish
Stay away from deep sea fish such as sea bass, swordfish and ahi tuna. They are high in mercury and can be extremely harmful to the reproductive system making it hard to sustain a pregnancy or to conceive.
Processed Grains
Processed grains lack sufficient amount of fiber. Fiber is needed to keep your blood healthy by getting rid of toxins and excess hormones present in the body. Processed grains also lack key nutrients needed to sustain a pregnancy.
Soy Protein
Soy proteins can be extremely harmful to your body if not fermented. It actually takes on the role of a hormone in your body disrupting your body's natural hormonal balance. Avoid all products that contain soy both while trying to conceive and during pregnancy as it can lead to miscarriage.

RISK OF MISCARRIAGE FALLS WITH ADVANCED GESTATION

 Many women decide not to tell others that they are pregnant until they have safely passed the first trimester.  It is probably true, that if you can progress through the first twelve weeks, your pregnancy has a much greater chance of successfully carrying to the point of a live birth.  The overall miscarriage rate is 17-22% (including early pregnancy losses), so miscarriage is quite common.
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm


For women with no danger symptoms, and a confirmed heartbeat on ultrasound, the risk of miscarriage is as follows:

"The risk fell rapidly with advancing gestation; 9.4% at 6 (completed) weeks of gestation, 4.2% at 7 weeks, 1.5% at 8 weeks, 0.5% at 9 weeks and 0.7% at 10 weeks" (from http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18310375)
