WHITE LIGHT VISUALIZATION TO PROTECT PREGNANCY

One of the ways I dealt with my fear of miscarriage was to visualize a white light around my pregnancy. Not only did the visualization process help my pregnancy, but it also helped to decrease my stress level.
My CD on  Meditation and Visualization (www.getpregnantover40.com) explains how I visualized.
 Here is a site that explains how the "white light" may help protect you and others:

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/meditationabout.htm
CLICK HERE FOR MEDITATION AUDIO
Simply visualize yourself bathed in a radiant white light. You can imagine it streaming down on you from heaven, or you can imagine it simply radiating out from you like your aura. Some teachers recommend that you visualize it impermeable like an egg shell. Others suggest you make it your own by adding any details that appeal to you, like purple stars or white diamonds, etc. You can also see yourself guarded by an invisible force field that is endless: it extends indefinitely above you, below you, and all around you. I like to BECOME the light, to imagine I'm so pure and bright that nothing shadowy can get anywhere near me. There really is no wrong way to do this, for the whole purpose is simply to get you focused AWAY from whatever is making you afraid or nervous, and focused ON well-being. The exact appearance of the white light is irrelevant; the important thing is the feeling of well-being that it generates within you.

As you're visualizing yourself surrounded by white light, remember that you are ever watched over by divine beings such as guides, angels, etc. Affirm that well-being abounds, and that no matter how bad things may look at the moment, miracles happen every day. "Know" deep down that one way or another, you will always find your way to well-being. Then project yourself into the future, vividly visualizing yourself as you desire to be.

MISCARRIAGE ANNIVERSARY: 10 THINGS TO KNOW

10 Things About Anniversaries Post-Loss

Guest Post By Nathalie Himmelrich

1. Anniversary reactions are normal
Even years after the loss you may have emotional reactions to anniversaries. You might feel sad, angry, contemplative or any other emotions. Remembering them as being normal can help you understand and take them as healing opportunities.
2. Do whatever feels right for you
Take it in your hands, take responsibility to make the day meaningful / helpful / healing-ful for you. Healing is YOUR choice, remembering too.
There are many ideas and suggestions out there: search Google to find many more ideas. Read up on ideas and make your choice.
If you have done something special please share it in the comments for others to read and benefit.

3. Manage your expectations of others
This might sound harsh but no one is required to remember your loved one. Thinking that others should/need to... will turn into disappointment. Everyone is doing the best they can, some remember but prefer not to talk about it and some don't remember. In addition, they are not mind readers and therefore do not know whether you prefer to talk about your child or not. In general, society does keep quiet for 'fear' of the potential emotional reaction they might trigger.
4. Speak up
Say what you need. Involve those that are important to you. On the first birthday of my daughter I asked the family to bring something from nature, like a stone, feather etc. to remember Amya. We held a small circle and each person was invited to speak. This is what I needed and by letting people know, it happened. On the girls 2nd birthday, I made a memorial video of Amya. Just for myself - the way I wanted to honour Amya.

5. Be true to yourself
What you feel like doing, or not doing, is not necessarily what another mother or father chooses to do. Stay true to yourself. There is no guideline on what needs to happen on anniversaries.
6. Guilt
Please remember guilt is reserved for a purposeful act intended to harm someone physically or emotionally. This is not the case if you don't feel like doing something but think you should... Be gentle with yourself and - you're doing it right by doing what feels right.
7. My partner does think about him/her
Generally speaking, more often women feel that their man does not think or remember the child's birthday or anniversary. Even though it might be true that men more often forget special dates, be aware of what you imply: Have you asked him (or her)?
More often than not, men tend to internalise their processes and women externalise them. Having interviewed many bereaved parents, both fathers and mothers I do know that it is not true that they don't remember. They do. They just have different ways to do it.
8. Let people know
As mentioned before, people do not know unless you tell them. Help people understand what it is you need by letting them know.
9. A word about self-expectations
Beside the expectation we have of others, we also consciously or unconsciously internalise what we have heard or read. Expecting yourself to be, react or experience different that you are leads to self imposed stress. Notice if that is what is happening. Let go. Allow yourself to be the way it is.
10. Any day can be a 'remembrance' day
Any day you have loaded with meaning can trigger beautiful or stressful memories. As in life in general, so in post-loss life. If you have too many days loaded with stressful triggers of grief, maybe it's time to off-load them and re-load them with more helpful meaning. I will show you how in a future post. Stay tuned.

MISCARRIAGE AND EFT: EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE TAPPING

Can EFT and Tapping Help You Through Miscarriage?

So what is EFT? It stands for "emotional freedom technique". I learned about it years ago from an article in our local paper about how this technique can help with everything from emotional hang-ups to physical pain.
It is based on the principles of acupuncture where certain points on your body are tapped while you recite certain statements which are specific to your situation.  The following link describes how EFT
works and how to do it:

COMPASSION MAY BE THE BEST TREATMENT FOR MISCARRIAGE

No Standard Treatment For Miscarriage, But TLC May Be Best

I never thought I was the type that needed compassion from my medical providers.
Even though I was devastated by repeatedly miscarrying, I held a stiff upper lip and went on to try again. However, according to the article below, TLC may be one of the most effective treatments for miscarriage. Read more:

So, what's a conscientious obstetrician or midwife to do when faced with a patient who can get pregnant but who can't stay that way? Often nothing, in terms of simple medical intervention. (One exception to the rule is a proven treatment for women with antiphospholipid syndrome, who can increase their chances of carrying a baby to term with aspirin and the complex sugar heparin.) But if doctors and clinicians can't rush to write prescriptions, that doesn't mean they have nothing to offer their patients. In researching his book, Cohen learned of a dozen clinics around the world that specialize in caring for women who repeatedly miscarry. What seems to help many of their patients most is restraint, patience, and compassion. As Mary Stephenson at the University of Chicago Hospitals tells Cohen, "It's OK to want to phone a nurse every day."

SEE ALSO: HOW STRESS, INFERTILITY AND MISCARRIAGE MAY BE RELATED (Getpregnantover40.com)

 

And perhaps paradoxically, such non-clinical attentiveness has shown better results than any other treatment Cohen describes. One study in Norway of women who had miscarried at least three times (and some had miscarried as many as 13) found that 86 percent of those who received weekly medical exams and psychological support during a post-miscarriage pregnancy carried to term, as

compared to 33 percent who did not. A separate New Zealand study replicated those results. Which
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Fertility Goddess Necklace with Moonstone
may mean that, at least as a medical matter, hand-holding is the best intervention going for serial miscarriers.

The numbers of patients in the two studies is small, and Cohen expresses discomfort with a treatment that sounds, well, mushy—it goes by the cloying name of "tender loving care." But his wife, herself a miscarriage veteran, identifies strongly with the researchers' conclusion that the clinics succeed by confronting their patients' despondence, fatalism, and panic. One of the specialists Cohen shadows, Danny Schust at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, doesn't even diagnose a specific problem in a third of his patients. That's OK: Until the science advances, a lot of women will settle for a knowledgeable hand to hold.

SURPRISING STUDY: FIBROIDS DON'T INCREASE MISCARRIAGE RISK

This study was very surprising to me.  Years ago, when I was in my 20's I had fibroid surgery.  Even though I was not trying to conceive at the time, I was told by my surgeon that this could preserve my ability to get pregnant.  Even though the study below disputes that fibroids contribute to miscarriage, I'm glad I had the surgery.  Fibroids can get quite large and mine were growing quite fast.  Read more about the study on Fibroids and miscarriage:

Investigators from Vanderbilt, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, accrued the largest prospective cohort to date to investigate the association of fibroids with miscarriage, said Hartmann, the study's principal investigator.

Of the more than 5,500 women enrolled, ultrasound detected uterine fibroids in 11 percent, while 89 percent of the study participants did not have fibroids. The chance for miscarriage in both groups was 11 percent.
"The key message is that fibroids don't seem to be linked to miscarriage," said Hartmann.

SHORT CERVIX SCREENING TO IMPROVE SUCCESSFUL PREGNANCY RATES


I'm sure most women have no idea whether or not they have a short cervix. However, screening for this could prevent pre-term birth and premature delivery.  There are some treatments that can be given to women with this condition that may prolong the pregnancy and prevent prematurity.

This article talks about how screening for a short cervix is not only cost effective but it could prevent long-term disorders in infants and prevent neonatal death. Read more:

IS MISCARRIAGE HIGHER IN HIGHLY FERTILE PEOPLE?

 Could people with recurrent miscarriage be super fertile?

Here's an interesting theory...perhaps women who have recurrent miscarriage have a uterus that's just not selective enough about which embryos will implant.   This certainly makes a lot of sense because there are some women who have had over 10 miscarriages.  Read more:

High or low-quality embryos were placed in a channel created between two strips of the womb cells.
 Cells from women with normal fertility started to grow and reach out towards the high-quality http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-earrings.htmembryos. Poor-quality embryos were ignored.
 
However, the cells of women who had recurrent miscarriages started to grow towards both kinds of embryo.
Prof Nick Macklon, a consultant at the Princess Anne Hospital, said: "Many affected women feel guilty that they are simply rejecting their pregnancy.
"But we have discovered it may not be because they cannot carry, [but] it is because they may simply be super-fertile, as they allow embryos which would normally not survive to implant."

CAN YOU TAKE MEDICAL LEAVE AFTER MISCARRIAGE?

Miscarriage and Medical Leave

I saw this article which answers a question that most people probably don't think about when they've suffered a miscarriage.
My site: www.getpregnantover40.com has more articles on miscarriage and fertility over 40 

 Are you entitled to medical leave? This article explains how miscarriage fits in to the Family Medical Leave Act. Read more:

Entitlement
According to the Department of Labour, currently more than 69 million women are working in the United States. With so many women making up the workforce, it is important for working women to have some sort of guarantee that they will not lose their jobs should they be faced with a pregnancy complication or suffer from a pregnancy-related condition. Unfortunately, the United States, along with Australia and New Zealand, are among the few countries in the industrialized world that do not

have legislation in place to provide women with guaranteed paid maternity leave. Instead, rights regarding an extended leave due to pregnancy are covered by the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

The Family and Medical Leave Act
In 1993, the U.S. Congress signed into law the FMLA. This act guarantees both men and women unpaid, job-protected leave for up to 12 weeks after the birth of a child; adoption of a child; taking care of an ill relative or tending to one’s own medical condition. It also considers a miscarriage to be a serious health condition, and therefore allowing for a recovery period. However, there are several stipulations to this law.

WOMAN SPEAKS OF 5 MISCARRIAGES (AND BABY!)

Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage Can Be Overcome

This  writer does a good job of explaining the trauma of recurrent miscarriage while trying to function in the rest of your life. Even though you may put on a tough face or a happy face, there's a lot going on in your personal and emotional life after experiencing a miscarriage.
 Click Here For More Articles on Miscarriage and Success Stories (www.getpregnantover40.com)
 She did have a daughter in between all of her miscarriages, but losing a baby is traumatic whether you have kids or not.   Even now that I have my daughter and I am no longer trying to conceive, I still remember the pain and hopeless feeling after losing a pregnancy.  It will probably affect the way I view things for the rest of my life.  Read more:

And there was the time I flew abroad for my Christmas party - just days after my fifth loss. Putting on the brave face and painting on the party mood to ensure that team got the party they deserved was
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

difficult but necessary.

So the public face is one key challenge. Another is the blame game. Having had all the tests there is nothing actually wrong with me - so why five? The blame inevitably falls on you. Am I doing something wrong? Am I too stressed? Why am I constantly rejecting the thing I want so much? But no one lives in a vacuum. No one can 'check-out' of his or her work life to live in a zen-type bubble. Also - this busy person is who I am, right? RIGHT?

Those observant amongst you will have spotted the 'baby' bit in the title. This tale does have a happy ending. Maggie is fast approaching two and is the joy of my life. I've had three of my five miscarriages since she was born so the struggle isn't over, but I've come to appreciate how lucky I am. I have what so many people want but never actually get - an incredible daughter, a loving fiancĂ© and a supportive family that have shared and absorbed my pain where they could (thank-you all).

D&C: WHEN TO TRY TO CONCEIVE AGAIN

D and C After Miscarriage, Don't Rush Into Another Pregnancy

D&C's are frequently performed on women who have not spontaneously expelled their miscarriage. I had a few D & C's, but then wondered what my chances were of getting pregnant again and when to start trying.  My doctor had actually told me to wait three months after the surgery for my body to heal.
See my article on what a D &C is like after miscarriage (getpregnantover40.com)
Even though that sounded like a long time, it's probably good advice.  This article explains what happens after a D&C and what you should keep in mind before trying again.

From the article:

Once the hCG levels fall, your pituitary gland begins secreting the stimulatory hormones LH and FSH, and ovulation resumes. If the hCG levels were low at the time of the D&C, normal ovulation can return about two to three weeks after the D&C. Alternatively, if the fall in hCG is delayed, the first ovulation may occur three to six weeks later. As ovulation occurs two weeks before the menstrual period, you can, in fact, get pregnant before your first post-D&C menstrual period. If you do not
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Click here for the Saint Gerard Fertility Necklace
ovulate, and your menses were irregular before the pregnancy, all bets are off.

Is it safe to get pregnant immediately? That depends. Pregnancy without an intervening menstrual period can make managing the pregnancy more difficult, as your obstetrician will need to follow you more closely to accurately determine your due date. Additionally, after a D&C, there can be a low-grade inflammatory response in the uterus that may interfere with pregnancy, making the risk of repeat miscarriage a bit higher in the first post-D&C cycle.

If you have had miscarriages before, it is important that you and your physician try to determine the cause before you attempt to get pregnant again. Many women are discouraged after a miscarriage and rush to try again, without taking the necessary steps to avoid a subsequent miscarriage. In their haste to conceive again, these women condemn themselves to more suffering and potentially another pregnancy loss. The most difficult part of managing recurrent pregnancy loss is to address the emotional aspects that often interfere with completion of a comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan.

GETTING THROUGH MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage and The Emotional Turmoil

I found this Dear Abby question and answer about a woman who had experienced miscarriage. A number of readers wrote in who had also experienced miscarriage. Some of their replies such as this one may be helpful for you:
See my site: www.getpregnantover40.com for more articles on miscarriage
DEAR ABBY: “Anonymous in the North” needs to realize that her anger and bitterness are normal. You don't get “over” a miscarriage, but you do get through it – and life does get better.

What she needs to do is take care of herself, be gentle with herself. If that means avoiding or limiting her time with her brother and pregnant sister-in-law, or friends and family with babies, so be it! They need to understand that it isn't about them. It's a self-care issue. Unfortunately, family and friends
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/saints-for-fertility.htm
CLICK HERE FOR SAINTS FOR FERTILITY AND PREGNANCY
can be a part of the problem.

Things not to say to someone who has miscarried:

1. “You'll get pregnant again.” (Not everyone does.)

2. “You can always adopt.” (That's a personal decision and should not be rushed into as second best.)

3. “It was for the best because it was defective, it was God's will, etc.” (Unforgivable, even if it were true.)

I will never forget my disbelief and rage when a “friend” who knew of my miscarriage, and the emotionally and financially exhausting fertility treatments I was undergoing at the time, complained of her morning sickness and said, “Aren't you glad you're not going through this?”

If you don't know what to say about a friend's miscarriage, say “I'm so sorry,” and then shut up. Don't try to “fix it,” any more than you'd try to “fix” a widow by fixing her up.

Fish Oils To Prevent Pregnancy Loss

It seems like I'm hearing more and more about fish oils for just about everything.  They are recommended for their "anti-inflammatory" affect on the body so they are great for a number of the auto-immune disorders that seem to be more prevalent in our society.  Even recurrent miscarriage, in some cases, may be attributed to the immune system.   Fish oils contain the all powerful Omega-3 fats which are essential not only for the nervous system, but they also help your body manufacture

STILLBIRTHS CONNECTED WITH FIBROIDS

Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Fibroids


Long before I was trying to conceive, I had some fibroids removed because they were growing rapidly. Many fibroids cause no problems and some women aren't even aware that they have them.
 See www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage and prevention
However, they can be somewhat of a problem in pregnancy and this study talks about how they may cause growth restriction leading to stillbirth. Read more:

From the article:

The study was a retrospective cohort study of 64,047 women. Data were extracted on maternal sociodemographics, medical history, and obstetric outcomes. Pregnancies with any fetal anomalies were excluded. Women with at least one fibroid detected at the time of fetal anatomic survey were compared to women without fibroids. The primary outcome was IUFD after 20 weeks gestation. Univariate and multiple logistic regression analyses were used to estimate the risk of IUFD in women with fibroids, and subgroup was conducted by presence or absence of fetal growth restriction
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Feng Shui Elephant bracelet with Rose Quartz, Amethyst and Moonstone
(IUGR).

The study found that of 64,047 women, the incidence of fibroids was 3.2% (n=2,058). The incidence of IUFD was significantly higher in the fibroid group than in the no-fibroid group (1.6% v. 0.7%, aOR 1.8, 95%CI 1.3-2.7) even after adjusting for factors including black race, tobacco exposure, chronic hypertension, and pregestational diabetes. In subgroup analysis, the risk relationship between fibroids and IUFD only persisted within the IUGR subgroup.

"Our results showed that women with a combination of fibroids and fetal growth restriction were at two-and-a-half times the risk of having a stillbirth, though the absolute risk remained rare," said Dr. Alison G. Cahill, another of the study's authors. "This may lead to a future recommendation for serial growth scans to monitor fetal growth in women with fibroids."

PROLONGED STANDING AND MISCARRIAGE CONNECTION

Dealing With Pregnancy On The Job - Especially After Miscarriage

When I was pregnant, I taught a couple of classes at the local community college.
See also:  www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage prevention
 Even though I was never put on restrictions, I did not stand while I was teaching. I sat facing the class and used an overhead projector and transparencies instead of a blackboard. That may have been a wise choice because according to this article, excessive standing can contribute to miscarriage. Read more:

Long hours of standing at the workplace may increase the risk of miscarriage in some women, according to a new study.

"Women with a history of two or more previous spontaneous abortions who stood at work more than 7 hours per day had an elevated rate (31.6%) of spontaneous abortion," say researchers at the California Department of Health Services in Berkeley. This rate is four times the average, say study authors.

They interviewed over 5,300 pregnant women, questioning them on such subjects as job type, length
http://getpregnantover40.com/buy-fertility-jewelry.htm
Click here for fertility jewelry
of work shift, heavy lifting at work, amount of housework, and previous medical history.

Of the women surveyed, 499 of the pregnancies ended in miscarriage, 32 of the fetuses were stillbirths.

Researchers believe the added risk of miscarriage caused by standing may be due to the action of catecholamines, secreted by the adrenal glands. During long periods of standing, the pregnant woman's blood pressure can fall, and catecholamines are produced to increase heart rate and restore essential blood flow to the brain and heart. But the same substances also work to reduce blood flow to the uterus, and may cause uterine contractions -- and increased risk for miscarriage.

YES, THERE IS HOPE OF NORMAL PREGNANCY AFTER MISCARRIAGE!

Miscarriage And Real Women's Experiences

Here is an article from a local paper about many women's experiences with miscarriage. It may not be the end of your dream since the odds are in your favor that you will have a live birth.
See www.getpregnantover40.com for more miscarriage prevention articles 
 However, after a miscarriage, women have a flood of thoughts and feelings about their pregnancy and what they could have done differently.  It's hard not to feel some guilt or some responsibility for losing the pregnancy.  Read more:

Baudoin said it may be normal when a woman feels like an outsider or is ashamed after having an miscarriage, not understanding just how common miscarriages occur.

"I certainly know that it's not something a woman did wrong or can be prevented," she said. "As a women's health care provider, I want to try and help educate women and empower women to not feel ashamed because miscarriage is something that universally cannot be prevented."

Baudoin said it is common, and not surprising, many women don't want to talk about miscarrying as a way to not have to relive a traumatic event, but talking about it may open doors with those who have had miscarriages at some point in their lives, as well.

"I know many times where it's helpful for women to talk about it," she said. "When you have a miscarriage or you lose a pregnancy at any stage, you join a club that you never knew existed and you never wanted to join."

Additionally, Baudoin said the grieving process is a big part of having a miscarriage, as the woman


begins to have hopes and dreams for that baby.

"As soon as you know that you're pregnant, you can't help but to have big thoughts," she said. "Whether you want to or not, you picture the baby being born, the baby rolling over or the child going to school."

For many women, bouncing back and getting pregnant after a miscarriage is not only possible, statistically, the next pregnancy has a high probability of working out. Although it doesn't happen all the time, many women who have had a miscarriage go on to have a healthy next pregnancy.

Baudoin suggests waiting for another cycle after a miscarriage to let the body reset before trying again. The most likely outcome of a pregnancy following a miscarriage is a healthy pregnancy, she said.

"Statistically, if you think about pregnancies 20 to 25 percent of the time ending in miscarriage, the next time around with the same statistics, you've got a 75 to 80 percent chance to have a normal pregnancy," she said. "The odds are in your favor of having a better outcome or a non-miscarriage the second time around.

MISCARRIAGE CAUSED BY BALANCED TRANSLOCATION

Chromosomal Abnormalities and Miscarriage

A number of miscarriages can be traced to chromosomal abnormalities.  I had never heard of balanced translocation until I received an email from a woman whose husband has the condition.
 Also visit: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage causes and treaments
 I looked it up and thought it might be of interest to some of my blog readers. This article explains what the condition is and how it may affect conception and pregnancy:

To better understand the difference between balanced and unbalanced translocation, imagine a part of chromosome 21 has attached itself to chromosome 14. In a balanced translocation, the person has a smaller than normal chromosome 21 with a piece broken off, a normal second chromosome 21, a
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Click here for fertility necklaces
chromosome 14 with the broken piece of 21 attached, and a normal chromosome 14. The person appears completely normal and suffers no related health problems. If this person wants to have children, however, there are several possibilities that could affect the outcome of the pregnancy.

Both normal chromosomes - The normal chromosomes 21 and 14 may be passed on, resulting in a normal baby.
Broken 21, affected 14 - The broken chromosome 21 and affected chromosome 14 (with the broken piece from chromosome 21 attached) may be passed on, resulting in a baby with the same balanced translocation as the parent, but no related.
Normal 21, affected 14 - The normal chromosome 21 and affected chromosome 14 may be passed on, giving the child extra DNA from chromosome 21, resulting in unbalanced translocation and Down's Syndrome.

The cause of translocation is not well understood, though it has been linked to radiation exposure. There are a wide range of medical problems that may result from the condition, including leukemia, breast cancer, schizophrenia, muscular dystrophy and Down's Syndrome. The related health problems suffered by a person with translocation depend on which part of which chromosome is moved to where.

STUDY ON MISCARRIAGE AND ANGER

Healing After Miscarriage

I was happy to see a study like this one about how women felt about their miscarriage from the time they know something is wrong with their pregnancy until a year after their miscarriage. The study is done from a nursing standpoint and I only hope that nurses and doctors learn how to deal with patients who miscarry in a more compassionate way.

 After having six miscarriages, I dealt with some rude and completely unequipped healthcare professionals who said the wrong thing and added to my stress and sorrow. I heard everything from "Have you considered adoption?" to being completely ignored. Really, how much extra time does it take for these people to stop for one minute to say "I'm sorry for your loss?"  I'll admit, recurrent miscarriage can lead to frustration, disappointment, feeling like an unworthy person, and anger.  My anger was with health professionals, other pregnant women and probably the world.
___________

The conclusion of the study was that there are different routes to healing for different women.  Women need to identify what they lost and let go of anger.

HOW ASTROLOGY MAY HELP WITH MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage, Can Astrology Help?

Well, I thought I'd heard and read everything up until now. I came across an astrology site which claims that miscarriage can be prevented with the right timing. I was reluctant to post this article, but part of my mission is to make information available and let my very intelligent readers make their own choices. However, the problem for most of us is not being able to plan when we get pregnant. When you're trying to conceive you take advantage of every opportunity. For anyone interested, here is a link to the article:


http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
BABY HOPE NECKLACE WITH ROSE QUARTZ,

This tool is astrology...

In our opinion, astrology might prevent miscarriages by pointing to some specific planetary configurations and alignments that are time and again found in cases of stillbirths.

____________

By knowing in advance when these specific alignments are active in your horoscope, it would be wise to avoid becoming pregnant. This way you can prevent miscarriages and stillbirths.

When the planetary alignments pass when time goes by, the odds are you will be able to conceive a (healthy) child again. Indeed, life is all about the right timing!

How did we proceed to find these specific alignments that indicate miscarriage or stillbirth?

We analyzed the (secondary) progressed charts, converse progressed charts and solar returns of the years that a miscarriage took place in the life of celebrities and clients of which we had accurate birth information (Rodden rating B or above or birth certificates).

We also made extensive use of the AstroDatabank and nndb.com (Notable Names Database) to find additional information.

We have the exact birth information of 20 people and 23 reliable (well-timed) miscarriage data so that we could investigate the position of the 5th house (Topocentric houses) and its ruler in the (secondary) progressed charts, converse progressed charts and solar returns at the time of miscarriage.

PCOS CONNECTION TO MISCARRIAGE

How PCOS And Miscarriage Are Linked

I did not suffer from PCOS, however, when I ran an infertility support group, a number of women in the group had PCOS.

Many women have this condition and don't know it.  It can be linked with insulin resistance as well.  Here is an article in its entirey about PCOS and miscarriage:

As if it was not hard enough to get pregnant when you have been diagnosed with polycystic ovary

ELEPHANT, ROSE QUARTZ, AMETHYST
MOONSTONE FERTILITY BRACELET
syndrome there is also a link between miscarriage and PCOS that you need to worry about.

There is no single culprit but rather a combination of factors that lead to this incresed risk:

Blood Clots

A major cause of PCOS is an imbalance in hormones and thids may lead to the formation of clots. If clots are choking the arteries, there is a chance that the embryo will get far less nutrition from the blood than it needs and a miscarriage may occur.

Luteinizing Hormone Hypersecretion

All this means is that there is too much of a certian hormone being produced. This happens when the egg is being released from the ovary and causes it to happen too soon which results in defects in the egg which the body rejects during pregnancy causing a miscarriage.

Protein Deficiency

It has been discovered that the levels of two specific proteins tend to be lower in women diagnosed with PCOS. Where PCOS has been linked to miscarriages in studies done, a common element was found to be low levels of these two particular proteins. For the healthy development of the embryo it is important that mothers maintain normal levels of these 2 proteins

To prevent a miscarriage from PCOS there are a range of natural treatments that will help you alleviate the symptoms by targeting what actually causes the problem.

FETAL GROWTH PROBLEMS AND MISCARRIAGE

Pregnancy Over 40, Is Your Baby Growing Normally?

You may have heard about intrauterine growth retardation or restriction.
 This is when a baby is not developing or growing at the rate it should. The following article explains how this condition is diagnosed and treated.  Usually IUGR is identified by measurements taken on ultrasound.   Read more:

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT MISCARRIAGE OVER 40 (getpregnantover40.com)


How is IUGR diagnosed?

One of the most important things when diagnosing IUGR is to ensure accurate dating of the pregnancy. Gestational age can be calculated by using the first day of your last menstrual period
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Click here for our complete line of fertility necklaces with healing stones
(LMP) and also by early ultrasound calculations.

Once gestational age has been established, the following methods can be used to diagnose IUGR:

Fundal height that does not coincide with gestational age
Measurements calculated in an ultrasound are smaller than would be expected for the gestational age
Abnormal findings discovered by a Doppler ultrasound

How is IUGR treated?

Despite new research the optimal treatment for IUGR remains problematic. Most likely the treatment will depend on how far along you are in your pregnancy.

If gestational age is 34 weeks or greater, health care providers may recommend being induced for an early delivery.
If gestational age is less than 34 weeks, health care providers will continue monitoring until 34 weeks or beyond. Fetal well-being and the amount of amniotic fluid will be monitored during this time. If either of these becomes a concern, then immediate delivery may be recommended.
Depending on your health care provider, you will likely have appointments every 2 to 6 weeks until you deliver. If delivery is suggested prior to 34 weeks, your health care provider may perform an amniocentesis to help evaluate fetal lung maturity.

FOLIC ACID IN GREENS HELPS HOMOCYSTEINE LEVELS AND MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage Over 40, How Greens And Folic Acid Can Help

So what is homocysteine and what does it have to do with miscarriage?  Homocysteine can be toxic to your body and it is something that I have read about in my fertility research over the years.  This blog talks about the importance of folic acid (found in greens) to control homocysteine levels. Read more:

From the article:

Homocysteine (also referred to as Total Homocysteine, or abbreviated as tHcy on lab forms) is a toxic amino acid produced by your liver and usually counterbalanced by healthy cleansing processes in your liver. High levels of tHcy are associated with risk for stroke, heart attack, and clot formation in your cardiovascular system. And in early pregnancy, elevated tHcy is associated with miscarriage.

Your body needs B vitamins, specifically folate, B12 and B6, for the conversion of tHcy into a non-toxic substance...


See Also: Greens for Fertility (www.getpregnantover40.com)

...Studies have shown that folic acid supplementation before conception and in pregnancy is
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Fertility bracelets click here
associated with increased birth weight and longer gestational length. Folic acid also has an immensely important role in the development of your baby’s spinal cord and brain and helps prevent spinal cord problems, also known as neural tube defects.

Some things that can drive up your Homocysteine (tHcy) levels:

Vitamin B deficiency (Folate, B12, and B6)
Smoking
Excessive alcohol intake
Lack of exercise
Excessive coffee intake

What helps if your Homocysteine (tHcy) is high?

Supplement with B-Vitamins (Folate, B12, and B6)
Incorporate foods which are high in B-Vitamins into your daily diet
Address the lifestyle activities noted above

Foods high in B-Vitamins

Folate - Leafy greens such as spinach, turnip greens, fresh fruits and vegetables.
Vitamin B6 - Poultry, seafood, bananas, leafy green vegetables, potatoes.
Vitamin B12 - Animal foods are the only natural source of vitamin B12; but many products are fortified with vitamin B12. Shellfish, such as clams, mussels, crab. Fin fish, beef.

Facts about having Homocysteine (tHcy) blood levels drawn:

Ideally check tHcy levels before you get pregnant. However it’s never too late to supplement with B Vitamins. They are safe, inexpensive and easy to digest.
Draw blood first thing in morning after having fasted from food and fluids for at least 8 hours.
For menstruating women: tHcy levels are most accurately assessed prior to ovulation and not in the luteal part of your menstrual cycle (The luteal phase of your cycle is the second half which is from ovulation through menses). Ideally draw sometime on Days #1-#7 of your cycle

MISCARRIAGE SUPPORT: ONLINE FORUMS HELP!

Miscarriage Support Online

I have always recommended that women who are trying to conceive or have experienced one or more miscarriages join a support group.
See www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage prevention, support and natural methods to enhance fertility
Support groups can come in many different forms. One easy, quick way to gain support is through an online forum. There's no where to travel and the anonymity is also nice for those who value their privacy and confidentiality. This study confirms that online support can be very helpful:

Women coping with the mental trauma of a miscarriage find it hard to take comfort from their friends, according to new research.

The study by scientists at the Georgia Health Sciences University's Education Discovery Institute surveyed over 1,000 women and found many seek solace from other women who had gone through similar experiences via internet message boards.

"Women who have not gone through a stillbirth don't want to hear about my birth, or what my daughter looked like, or anything about my experience," said one respondent.

Researchers observed that only 50 per cent of the women had suffered a miscarriage during the last 12 months and many were still struggling to come to terms with the experience many years later.

The study's senior author Christie Palladino said the message forums can be an important resource.

REMEMBERING LOST BABIES ON MEMORIAL DAY

Miscarriage Memorial

Many couples find comfort in finding some way to remember their baby lost through miscarriage or stillbirth. This article features a number of couples and how they decided to memorialize their child lost through miscarriage or stillbirth. Read more:

had been cremated, and they had been unable to decide where to place the ashes, which remained in an urn at the undertaker's. Both were anguished at their inability to find a resting place for Jason's ashes. In conversations with their minister, they eventually decided to plant a back yard garden and to scatter the ashes there. Having reached that decision, they enlisted the help of loving friends and family to offer suggestions about plantings, manual help with tilling and fertilizing, and especially cherishing a hammock that could be hung between trees nearby with a clear and shaded view of Jason's garden. When the time came to scatter Jason's ashes, their minister joined them and their loved ones for a small dedication of this garden planted in his memory.

FIBROIDS AND MISCARRIAGE CONNECTION

Fibroids, Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage Over 40

I've heard differing opinions about whether or not fibroids can affect fertility and pregnancy. I'm sure much of it depends on their size, location, etc.  I did have three rather large fibroids removed when I was around the age of 30.  The problem with fibroids is that they can grow quite large in women of reproductive age which is why I opted for the surgery.
 Here is an article that connects fibroids to miscarriage. Read more:

Fibroids, benign muscle tumors of the uterus, are estimated to affect more than one in five women of reproductive age. But little is known about the influence of these growths on pregnancy outcomes, including miscarriage, premature birth and fetal growth restriction.

See also: Trying To Conceive With Uterine Abnormalities (getpregnantover40.com) 

 "No studies have prospectively investigated these risks in a large cohort of women early in pregnancy where presence of fibroids was uniformly assessed using ultrasound imaging. This is the first large-scale prospective study to do that," said Dr. Katherine Hartmann, the study's principal investigator. Hartmann also is assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology as well as epidemiology in UNC's schools of medicine and public health.

"Fibroids are very common, as are these potentially devastating pregnancy outcomes. But research evidence to inform clinical care is meager," she said.

Previous ultrasound studies of uterine fibroids were flawed because they used ultrasound databases including fibroids that doctors considered of concern, Hartmann said. Typically, these were fibroids of at least three centimeters. Others, often much smaller, were not uniformly noted.

"So the studies are flawed by inadequate assessment of the classification of who has fibroids and who does not," she said. "In our pilot study of 1,600 women, we discovered that the majority of those who have fibroids never have been told that they did."

Fibroids were diagnosed in 170 of the women.

Pilot study results show that women with fibroids have a 55 percent increased risk of pregnancy loss, and smaller fibroids are significantly more associated with having a miscarriage than larger ones. Moreover, it appears that presence of fibroids is uniformly associated with miscarriage throughout early pregnancy

ALL ABOUT FETAL HEART RATES

Miscarriage And Fetal Heart Rate

Just before one of my miscarriages, I had an ultrasound.

 The first thing the doctor said when he came into the room after the PA had the ultrasound positioned on my baby was "the heartbeat is slow". I started to get this sinking feeling like he was giving my baby a death sentence. 
 See Also My Story About Overcoming Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage
(www.getpregnantover40.com)
Well...I know it wasn't his fault, he was just the messenger--I did lose the pregnancy.
Many women wonder what a normal fetal heartrate should be. Here is a site that explains more:

"What should my baby's fetal heart-rate be?
The normal fetal heart rate is between 110 to 180 beats per minutes (BPM), but can vary. Fluctuations of the fetal heart rate (usually associated with fetal movement) during different periods of the day are common and often rise above 160, going as high as 180 to 190 and are considered normal. If you have questions or concerns about your baby's fetal heart rate always direct them to your healthcare professional.

What hearing a healthy heartbeat signifies
Listening to a normally beating heart using a fetal ultrasound doppler as early as 8 weeks can offer reassurance and cut down on a lot of stress and help assure that the developing fetus is healthy. While miscarriage occurs in only about 15 percent of apparently normal pregnancies, it only occurs in about 1 percent of pregnancies where a normal heartbeat has been seen or heard."

NANCY KERRIGAN SPEAKS OF HER 6 MISCARRIAGES

Well, I finally have something in common with an Olympian....6 miscarriages.  Nancy Kerrigan, the Olympic skater and Dancing with the Stars celebrity opened up about how hard it was for her to complete her family.  Even though she had her first child uneventfully, she subsequently suffered recurrent pregnancy loss.  She finally succeeded in completing her family with IVF.

“The first time that you go in and they tell you, ‘Oh there’s no heartbeat,’ it’s devastating,” Kerrigan says of suffering “at least” six miscarriages in the years after giving birth to Matthew.
“I felt like a failure,” says Kerrigan, whose doctors were never able to determine why she kept miscarrying.

Making matters worse was having to tell Matthew that he would have to wait to become a big brother.  “Once, the pregnancy was far enough along that we actually told our son and he was so excited,” says Kerrigan. “How do you explain [a miscarriage] to a little kid? Having to tell them that it was now gone and they had to take it out? He asked why and we had to explain, ‘Because it’s dead. It’s not alive anymore.’ That was awful.”

MISCARRIAGE AND QI, CHINESE MEDICINE

A Woman Must Recover Her Qi and Get Relief From The Emotional Strain Of Miscarriage

Here is an interesting article about miscarriage and what it does to a woman from a traditional chinese medicine viewpoint.

See Also Other Articles On Pregnancy Over 40 and Alternative Treatments For Infertility www.getpregnantover40.com

 I could certainly relate to some of the information presented here about recovering from past miscarriages before  trying to conceive again.  Not only do you need your "Qi" back, but you must also recover from the emotional strain of miscarriage.

From the article:

he process of maintaining a pregnancy past the 1st trimester is much like driving on a paved country road for 3 months without veering off onto the soft shoulder. Being pregnant with suboptimal balance
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Click here for our line of fertility necklaces
is much like driving a car with two wheels on the soft unpaved shoulder of a road. If all four wheels get on and stay on the paved road, the pregnancy will go on. But, there is higher chance for all four wheels to slide off onto the unpaved soft shoulder and get stuck, or for the patient to miscarry.

A woman, who experiences miscarriage, loses Qi (vital energy) and Blood according to TCM as well as fetus, meaning that a miscarriage is as draining to a woman's energy as labor. Indeed there is a saying that proclaims ¡®a miscarriage is more serious than labor. If a proper treatment is not made after miscarriage, imbalanced condition can be aggravated so making her more difficult to get pregnant. With recurrent miscarriages, a woman can lose her hope and sometimes cannot overcome fear and depression that she may be unable to reach to 40th week of pregnancy. Actually this kind of emotional strain can aggravate imbalanced condition of body. Therefore, treatment plans for miscarriage in TCM include:

1. Recovery from losses of Qi and Blood due to recent miscarriage

2. Distress and relief of emotional strain

3. Correction of pre-existing imbalance of body

These purposes can be achieved well by acupuncture and/or Chinese herbs. Even though once pregnancy is achieved, continuous treatments by acupuncture and herbs up to 12th week of pregnancy can help a woman to prevent miscarriage.

ASPRIN IN PREGNANCY=MISCARRIAGE RISK

Taking Low Dose Aspirin In Pregnancy

Taking low dose aspirin is something many women do - and is recommended by some fertility clinics. I also took low dose aspirin - even when I was trying to conceive naturally because I had heard that it could help with early miscarriage by eliminating small clots.

See also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on getting pregnant over 40 and preventing miscarriage 


 However, this article raises concerns about taking aspirin. Of course you should check with your doctor before taking anything in pregnancy. Read more:

Taking aspirin in early pregnancy may trigger a miscarriage, women were warned yesterday.

The claim by researchers has shocked doctors who prescribe low-dose aspirin thinking it can prevent some expectant mothers from losing their babies.

They warned the findings should be treated with caution. The miscarriage risk for women taking aspirin or similar painkillers could be sevenfold higher than for those not taking the drugs, the Danish study suggests.

It is the first to make the link, The scientists admit their findings do not show that taking aspirin actually causes miscarriage.

But the 'association is new and needs to be confirmed' by further investigation, says the study, published today in the British Medical Journal today.

Last night British experts urged mothers-to-be not to panic. They advised them to seek medical advice about what painkillers to take or to use paracetamol.

Dr Gunnar Nielsen and her team looked at the medical records of 1,462 pregnant women who had received prescriptions for nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory painkillers (NSAID) during the period from 30 days before conception to birth.

They also compared 4,268 women who had miscarriages, of whom 63 had taken aspirin or similar NSAID painkillers, with 29,750 women who had live births. Although such drugs have been suspected of causing a range of health problems in the unborn baby, the study showed no increased risk of birth defects, low birth weight or premature birth.

But an extra risk of miscarriage in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy emerged from the data. It found a
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Click here for fertility bracelets with healing stones
doubling of risk for those who had taken aspirin between seven and nine weeks before a miscarriage, which rose to a sevenfold risk among women who took it up to one week earlier.

However, just three miscarriages were responsible for the figures giving a sevenfold risk and the researchers admit aspirin might have been prescribed to treat pain that signalled an impending miscarriage.

Professor Phil Baker, professor of foetal and neonatal health for Tommy's Campaign, which funds medical research into miscarriage, stillbirth and premature birth said NSAID painkillers should be used with caution during pregnancy.

'If a pregnant women needs a mild analgesic or painkiller then paracetamol is a relatively safe drug,' he said.

REASONS FOR MORNING SICKNESS, PREGNANCY HEALTH

 Nausea and Vomiting In Pregnancy May Protect Us From Harmful Foods

I had horrible nausea with all my pregnancies, especially my successful one.
 I have often heard that nausea can indicate that you have a healthy pregnancy because your hormones are strong (although I should mention that I miscarried a number of pregnancies with nausea).  Here is an interesting article about how morning sickness may be nature's way of protecting against miscarriage.   Apparently, it can keep us away from harmful foods which could affect our pregnancies.  Read more:

SEE ALSO ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE AND HOME REMEDIES FOR MISCARRIAGE (getpregnantover40.com)

 

The analyses suggest that morning sickness occurs more often in pregnant women who consume high

Sacral Chakra Necklace
amounts of sugar, fats, alcohol, and meat. While, pregnant women who eat more cereal-based foods suffer less NVP. The results demonstrate convincing evidence that a connection between diet and morning sickness does exist and reinforces the scientist’s belief that an adaptive evolutionary link exists that nausea and vomiting during pregnancy serve to prevent the ingestion of harmful or toxic foods that may lead to miscarriage or harm to the developing fetus

MISCARRIAGE CAUSED BY ESTROGEN PROGESTERONE SENSITIVITY

Hormones and Miscarriage

There's quite a bit of controversy about whether or not progesterone can help women who experience recurrent miscarriage carry to term. Some articles say it can prevent miscarriage and other articles that claim there is no benefit at all. Here is an article about how some miscarriages may be caused by a sensitivity to hormones in which case progesterone injections would actually cause more harm than good. Read more:

"A new research carried on at the Sheba Medical Center in Tel Hashomer, Israel, might have shed some light on the origins of these unexplained miscarriages.

The scientists found that a immune hypersensitivity in women with recurrent miscarriage to female

sex hormones (that regulate pregnancy), estrogen and progesterone, in skin tests. 


See Also: www.getpregnantover40.com for more on miscarriage and the top 10 things you may not know about miscarriage

This is a warning signal, as some controversial current therapies against miscarriages include progesterone injections.
“Previous studies had shown a connection between miscarriage and unusual immune system responses, but none had looked at the role of these sex hormones,” the researchers say.

The team injected the hormones into the skin of 29 women who had suffered at least three unexplained miscarriages, and 10 women who had successfully gave birth to a healthy, normal baby and never experienced a miscarriage.

26 women in the first group showed immune hypersensitivity to one of the two hormones, and 17 of them are hypersensible to both, while the women that had not experienced miscarriage were totally immune.

“This is really novel,” says Walker.

“It’s a small sample size but if the results are that profound, it definitely warrants more research.”

CELEBRITIES WHO HAVE SUFFERED MISCARRIAGE

I always say that misarriage has no boundaries.  I think we all tend to think that celebrities have it all and have the perfect life.  But, the fact of the matter is that they are regular people just like the rest of us and many of them suffer through infertility and miscarriage.  Here are some high profile celebrities who have opened up about their miscarriages:
