OBESITY FOUND AS A CAUSE OF MISCARRIAGE RISK

Although most women, including obese women, go on to have successful pregnancies, according to this study, obesity can double the risk of losing a pregnancy.  It's been known for quite some time that being overweight can impact your fertility, but it can also contribute to miscarriage.  Read more:

After adjusting for other factors such as age, duration of infertility, smoking, and miscarriage history, the researchers were able to show that being overweight or obese more than doubled the risk of miscarriage.

Dr Rittenberg said: "We found that women who had a BMI of over 25 had a one in three chance of miscarriage compared with women with a normal BMI whose chance was one in five."
Scientists are still trying to find out why being overweight can lead to miscarriage.
One theory is that overweight women have higher levels of insulin in their blood, which may alter the lining of the womb and prevent implantation of the embryo.
Being overweight is also associated with other pregnancy problems, including high blood pressure, pre-eclampsia, diabetes, premature delivery and bleeding.
Babies of obese mothers are more likely to be large, necessitating a Caesarean delivery which carries risks in itself.

STUDY DISPUTES FIBROIDS-MISCARRIAGE LINK

Years ago, before I ever even thought about having children, I was told I had uterine fibroids.  I had them surgically removed (a full abdominal incision...ughhhh) which probably was the best option for me because I was still in my 20's and they were growing rather fast.  At the time, my fertility wasn't even a worry of mine (although I do remember the doctor saying that fibroids could cause problems).  According to this article, uterine fibroids in and of themselves do not seem to be a cause of miscarriage. This may be good news for women who want to avoid unnecessary surgery if they are assuming that their fibroids interfered with their pregnancy.  Read more:

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.

DIET HIGH IN ANTIOXIDANTS CAN HELP PREVENT MISCARRIAGE

Wow, I always knew the importance of eating right, but when I heard this statistic, even I was surprised.  It confirms what I already knew, but the benefits of eating a high antioxidant diet not only improves your overall health, but it can cut your risk of miscarriage in half.  I also have a series on my website on foods for fertility and pregnancy here (getpregnantover40.com)


The study of almost 7,000 women looked for links between diet and lifestyle and miscarriage.
One of the most important factors was fruit and vegetable consumption, with those who ate the
foods daily or almost daily benefiting most.
It is thought that those who eat lots of fruit and vegetables have a healthy diet overall, meaning their bodies are better prepared for pregnancy.

Although the study did not look at the amount of fruit and veg that should be eaten, pregnant women – like the general population – are
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm

usually advised to eat five servings a day.
Vitamin tablets were also found to be highly beneficial, halving the risk of miscarriage.
Eating dairy products such as milk, yoghurt and cheese daily cut the risk by a quarter, while twice-weekly meals of white meat or fish reduced
it by around 15 per cent.
Those with a sweet tooth also benefited, with regular chocolate eaters 15 percent less likely to miscarry.
The researchers, from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, said their findings highlighted the importance of a
healthy, balanced diet during pregnancy.

CAN VITAMIN C HELP A PREGNANCY?

Can Vitamin C help a pregnancy and is it safe?  Of course, you should talk with your doctor before taking anything in pregnancy (including herbal preparations and vitamins).  But I thought I would post this article for anyone interested.   I cannot vouch for the effectiveness or the claims, and I don't necessarily endorse the use of Vitamin C at the doseage in the article, but it does cite some research on the benefits of vitamin C in pregnancy and it disputes some of the claims of harm. Again, talk with your doctor before taking anything in pregnancy:  Read more:

A Healthy Pregnancy


Guest Post By Phil Bate Ph.D.

Every mother wants and hopes for a healthy baby, but in this more and more polluted world, it's getting harder and harder. Not that long ago in the history of humans, and up to a few hundred years ago, many women simply lay down, and had a healthy baby. Then, along came midwives to help, as societies evolved. Later came medical doctors.

One was a man named Semmelweiss. He worried about the large number of women, treated by male doctors. He went around telling fellow doctors that they had to wash their hands before a birthing to prevent purpura, a bacterial infection. He was ridiculed by the local medical society, and hounded out of the profession. He was right, but he died an outcast and broke. Not many years after that, Pasteur discovered bacteria, and those doctors scratched their heads, saying "Maybe Semmelweiss was right?"
Today is not that much different. Too many MD's are "educationally handicapped" by wrong things
that they learned in med school (usually many years previously from text books even older). They are further handicapped by reading (and believing) medical journal information. All Medical Journals are entirely supported by drug advertising, and cannot ever publish anything favorable to vitamins or other supplements common to the Alternate Health field or they lose their income.
Vitamin C in Pregnancy

 SEE ALSO: TEN THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT MISCARRIAGE AND MORE (getpregnantover40.com)


Every pregnant woman worries about the latest "scare". Swine flu virus in this spring of 2009, as this is written. The worsening birth rate of autism creates heavy worries for all pregnant women.
How about a really cheap, yet effective way to prevent either of those? Here it is. Go to a discount store such as Costco or Walmart. Get a bottle of 500 pills of 1000mg (1 gram).of Vitamin C
Start taking two of those pills at breakfast and two at dinner. Take any vitamins, supplements or other drugs at lunch, so that any minerals in those aren't taken out of the body by the vitamin C. Total cost under $30 for the whole nine months. Pretty cheap for such insurance,
Vitamin C does many things very well:
1. It "chelates" all minerals in the bloodstream combining with them into a harmless form that is water soluble, and this is filtered out of the bloodstream by the kidneys and out of the body via urine. That's important, because in the polluted world, the mother may have a near toxic level of mercury, or lead, or other heavy metal that can destroy brain cells. She is likely to not know this unless she has had mineral analysis by blood, urine, or hair. By taking the amount above, for at least six to nine months, the mother's toxic level (and the babies) will be lowered sufficiently, so that at birth the baby's tiny liver will be able to handle additional loads of mercury from vaccines and other toxic sources.
2. What Big Pharma doesn't want you to know is that Vitamin C kills both bacteria and virus cells in the blood. However to do this the blood has to be saturated long enough to kill all that are present. With this amount, the blood is saturated twice a day. This gives fair to good protection against colds and flu's for the mother and the baby. This also lessens considerably the possibility of high temperatures that may be dangerous to the fetus. (In flu season, I up that to 3 grams at both times, )
Many MD's ignorant of the above facts still oppose this usage due to the lies and phony research funded by Big Pharma. There are many "horror" stories spread about vitamin C. These include the following:
a. Vitamin C causes abortion or miscarriage.
F. R. Klenner, MD (http://www.doctoryourself.com/miscarriage.html) gave high doses (5000 to 10,000 mg/day) to 300 women during pregnancy with no miscarriages
b. Vitamin C causes Kidney damage and/or kidney stones:
Totally false - in fact, knowledgeable MD's use vitamin C to help dissolve kidney stones, and to treat kidney and bladder infections.
c. Vitamin C is useless against viruses and bacteria: This is supposedly backed by several "scientific tests", mostly funded by Big Pharma. In such tests, these "scientists" used only 500 mg of vitamin C (that's their definition of a megavitamin since the RDA is only 75 mg. That amount will prevent scurvy, BUT, it isn't nearly enough for good health!
The major flaw in that research is that 500 mg cannot begin to saturate the bloodstream to kill ALL the virus and bacteria cells. Both multiply in a binary fashion doubling about every 20 minutes. If 500 mg of vitamin C only kills half the germ cells present, 20 minutes after the vitamin C is "used up", the germs are back to where they started and 20 minutes more and they've doubled again.
The results of such a "scientific" test are not true, and Big Pharma knows it, but they keep using such phony research as they will lose a lot of money if the true facts about vitamin C are known. It's much cheaper than their drugs, much safer, and at least as effective.
Here's a fact that's true. The only side effect of overdosing of Vitamin C is diarrhea. Anyone who tells you different is mistaken, and probably misled by years of Big Pharma's lies.
Pre-natal Vitamin Supplements
Did you know that the vitamins prescribed by your doctor aren't nearly enough for good health during pregnancy? Doctors make money prescribing them, and Big Pharma makes money from them.
I've checked many of the formulas available by prescription, and compared them to many others that are available at your neighborhood vitamin store. At similar or even lower prices, you can get much better multivitamin/mineral formulas. I personally recommend and take Solgar's VM-75. It is more expensive than many pre-natal ones, but it has several times the B complex (needed for stress), a good amount of all nutritional minerals. I have searched for an equal at a lower price, but haven't found one in 30+ years. I've used and recommended it for years, and I don't even get a discount from Solgar.
Take a VM-75 pill at noon every day. Do not take your vitamin C with it; allow 4 hours between these two, so that the vitamin C in these amounts does not take out what you need. In
Of course, ignore any fairy stories or lies about the dangers of multi-vitamins.
You may want to add additional zinc just to avoid "stretch marks". 15-30 mg is OK.
Please note that the above advice does NOT guarantee a healthy baby to all, just to a huge majority. There are genetic factors, accident factors, the mother's emotional states, etc that all have the potential of causing damage to the fetus. However, with the above, all problems are much lessened for a very affordable cost. Pass this Article on to any pregnant women you know.
Let's look at a few ideas (myths or lies) that have been promoted by Big Pharma that many, if not most MD's believe.
The published RDA for vitamins is the right amount to take daily.
Vitamin C causes kidney damage and kidney stones and abortions.
Vitamin C is useless used against colds flus and bacterial infections
Vitamin E is useless for heart problems.
Vitamin D is only needed in small amounts and dangerous otherwise.
If you believe any of the above, you've been misinformed. None of the above is even close to truth!
The RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance) was originally the MDA (Minimum Recommended Allowance). These are the vitamin and mineral daily amounts which are enough to keep most people from deficiency diseases such as beriberi, scurvy, and pellagra. Those amounts were determined by labs commissioned by the US government to determine these. They are insufficient for good health!
Do you see the huge difference between RDA and MDA? That choice of wording successfully lobbied for by food manufacturers (and Big Pharma) makes it seem that their foods are much better than they really are in nutrition, and more people actually get sick and use drugs on those amounts.

HOW A PSYCHIC EXPLANED MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage, Karma, and Fear

Yes, I did talk with a psychic when I was trying to conceive and after a number of my miscarriages.
 I even called into a radio show with a local psychic.  The answer was, "yes, you are going to have a baby".
Whether or not you believe in psychic abilities, this site called "askgrace.com" has some interesting perspectives on pregnancy and miscarriage. In this article, "Grace" talks about why a woman may be repeatedly miscarrying:

Tree of Life Fertility Bracelet with White Turqoise
When you call forth a child, you are calling for a great spirit to come to be embodied on Earth. Often, this is a spirit who has been to Earth many times before, and who probably knows you quite well through shared experiences in past lives. These past karmic experiences can bond you together for lifetimes - both from positive, loving experiences, and also from negative, painful ones. If that being has had a lot of painful experiences on Earth, it may be afraid to come back, and so part of this issue with repeated miscarriage may be because this soul is afraid to be born, and is backing out repeatedly.
This soul is also encountering your great fear of loss during pregnancy, which is making matters worse. A fetus feels everything that the mother feels, and these emotions are amplified and magnified a hundred fold. These emotions hit the baby in waves of energy, which either cause the baby to feel loved, comforted, safe and peaceful, or restless, trapped and afraid. It is natural to feel afraid during pregnancy, and it seems that other people cannot resist telling a pregnant woman all kinds of horror stories and things to worry about, but fear does not create an environment that supports life, health and well-being, either for you or your baby. The more peaceful and calm you can remain before, during and after your pregnancy, the better for everyone concerned.

FOLIC ACID PREVENTS MISCARRIAGE AND BIRTH DEFECTS

Most of us have heard that folic acid can help prevent birth defects by giving the body the nutrients it needs prior to and during pregnancy.  However, folic acid can also prevent the build up of homocysteine which can also help during pregnancy.  This article excerpt explains more:

One such situation is if the mother has certain mutations in the MTHFR gene. People with this mutation need extra folic acid. Something called homocysteine builds up in their blood and they need folic acid to combat its effects.

One of the effects of increased homocysteine build up may be more lost pregnancies. One number I

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Click here for the St. Gerard Fertility/Pregnancy Necklace
saw was that 21% of women with high homocysteine levels have recurrent pregnancy loss! But if this is true (and I haven't seen the hard data to confirm it), is it because of chromosomal abnormalities? Or something else?
See Also: Fish Oils to Prevent Miscarriage (www.getpregnantover40.com)

Hard to say. There are a couple of ideas out there for how high homocysteine levels might affect a pregnancy. There is some evidence that clots form more easily in these women's blood. Too much clotting can lead to problems like cystic hygromas which are known to affect pregnancies.

Another possible consequence of high homocysteine levels is chromosomal problems. DNA is often thought of as unchanging but it is actually pretty dynamic. While the A, G, C, and T's rarely change, something called DNA methylation can change a lot.

DNA is decorated with little chemical groups called methyls. These methyl groups can affect whether a gene is turned on or off. They can also affect whether a chromosome goes to the right place when a cell divides.

The connection here is that high homocysteine levels decrease your pool of methyl groups. What this means is that there is less methyl around so your DNA might not get enough. What folic acid does is provide extra methyl groups to the pool.

PROGESTERONE FOR MISCARRIAGE LOOKS PROMISING

I wish I had a dollar for every article I've written about progesterone to prevent miscarriage.  It's been an ongoing debate in the scientific community as to whether or not it can help sustain a pregnancy - especially if a woman is experiencing miscarriage.  Way back when, when I was going through fertility treatments (before I got pregnant naturally), I had a doctor tell me that "there's no scientific evidence that progesterone helps".  Well, maybe now there is.  Read more:

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Yale University recruited 116 women who had lost at least two early pregnancies, and tested their levels of nCyclinE, a molecular marker for endometrial health. Those with abnormal levels were then prescribed progesterone supplementation, to be inserted vaginally, twice a day during the second half of their menstrual cycles.


The intervention seemed to help. In the progesterone group, 68% of the women had subsequent successful pregnancies, compared to 51% of those who did not receive the hormone.
The researchers believe that the progesterone caused the endometrium to secrete more nutrients, which serve as food for an embryo in its first weeks of development. (Women who became pregnant continued taking progesterone until the 10-week mark.)
Lead author Dr. Mary Stephenson, director of the recurrent pregnancy loss program at the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences, says that women who have suffered multiple pregnancy losses should talk to their doctors about progesterone supplementation.

NATURAL KILLER CELLS IDENTIFIED CAUSING MISCARRIAGE

 I do recall, many years ago when we attempted fertility treatments and IVF (all which ended in miscarriage) that my doctor wanted to do some "immune testing".  At that point, I was totally done and I didn't want more treatments and I just wanted to get out of there.  And, you guest it, just months later I got pregnant naturally and had my daughter.  But, according to this article, there are natural killer cells that have been identified in the uterus that can cause miscarriage.   Read more:

SEE ALSO: TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE ON MISCARRIAGE (getpregnantover40.com)


 From the article:

First the researchers discovered that the uterine natural killer cells remodel and refresh the lining of
http://www.getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Fertility and Pregnancy Goddess Necklace with Healing Moonstone
the womb at the time of embryo implantation. This is the first time a role for uterine natural killer cells in the lining of the womb has been identified outside of pregnancy.

In addition they discovered that this process isn't always balanced in each cycle. The natural killer cells perform the role of targeting and clearing inflammatory stressed cells, thereby making space for the implanting embryo. However sometimes not enough of these cells are cleared away and sometimes too many are targeted and removed. Excessive inflammation or insufficient clearance by uterine natural killer cells makes miscarriage more likely.
Lead author Professor Jan Brosens who is based at the Division of Biomedical Sciences Warwick Medical School said: "A good analogy is Swiss cheese: without holes, the embryo has nowhere to go which will cause implantation failure; but if the holes are too large, the tissue will physically collapse and lead to miscarriage."

TIME OF CONCEPTION COULD EXPLAIN MISCARRIAGE

I often wondered why I was able to get pregnant so many times (even over the age of 40), but I continually miscarried.  I've often heard of very fertile women who just could not hang on to their pregnancies and experienced recurrent pregnancy loss.  This article gives one possible explanation.  Read more:

SEE ALSO: HOME REMEDIES FOR MISCARRIAGE (getpregnantover40.com)


In a healthy uterus, stem cells enable the endometrial lining to build up by about 10 millimetres over the course of 10 days, after every period. Some cells in the endometrium then senesce – they stop dividing, and trigger inflammation. A group of immune cells, called natural killer cells, answer the call, clearing out the ageing cells. This process creates a kind of honeycomb mesh, with holes just the
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-rita-for-fertility.htm
Saint Rita for Pregnancy and Pregnancy Protection
right size for an embryo to embed, says Brosens.

But something seems to go awry in women who miscarry. When Brosens’s team took samples from the uteruses of women who haven’t had miscarriages, they found that the number of natural killer cells cycled in a predictable manner throughout the month. But in women who have miscarried several times, the numbers of natural killer cells varied every month, continually rising for several months in a row, before disappearing, and then beginning to accumulate again.
This could be because they have too few stem cells. “Forty per cent of [recurrent miscarriage] patients had no stem cells at all,” says Brosens. As a result, more cells enter the tired “senescent” state, attracting larger numbers of natural killer cells, leading to bigger holes in the endometrium.
If this is the case, it may explain why women who frequently miscarry can find it very easy to get pregnant. The large holes in the endometrium may make it easy for an embryo to implant at first, but eventually the structure will collapse in on itself, says Brosens.
However, as natural killer cells rise in number over time, eventually a woman should have very low numbers of senescent cells, minimising the effects of having relatively fewer stem cells. “We should have windows where things are completely normal,” says Brosens, who presented his work at the Nordic Fertility Innovation meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, earlier this month.
This could be why women can experience multiple miscarriages before having a healthy baby – they may have been conceiving at times when the uterus was not receptive to a pregnancy, before chancing on the optimum conditions.
It’s possible to test the levels of natural killer cells, and Brosens and his colleagues have begun offering this test to women who’ve had recurrent miscarriages, to help them identify the best time to get pregnant. So far, they have advised around 150 women.
They have already had some success stories. One woman recently told Brosens that she is now 26 weeks pregnant.

HOW TO SAY GOOD BYE AFTER MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage and Saying Good Bye To Your Baby

This article puts into words what many women feel after a miscarriage.
 The trauma, the loss, and the fear that you may never succeed in having a baby.  Although the woman in this article has two children, she still feels like a mother of seven.  Read more:

Zoe regards herself as a mother of seven, not as a mother of two. "I don't want to forget the babies who were never born. They will always be a part of me," says Zoe.

Coping after a miscarriage can be extremely difficult for both parents. "People often underestimate the level of trauma," Zoe says. "Each time I've lost a baby, I've felt I might die with the pain. The grief was suffocating. It's overwhelming having to decide on the spot whether you want an autopsy or the body released to you. Not being able to face going to bed at night, knowing you're going to have to go through the anguish of the following day. And there's this terrible fear that you might never be a mother at all," she says.
She and Andy felt keenly that unlike the death of a person who has lived some kind of life – even if only for a few days after birth – there is no ritual public acknowledgment of the loss of a life. "When you miscarry, there's no funeral and no way of saying goodbye"

Knowing that thousands of women miscarry, or experience stillbirth, she and Andy came up with an idea – a way for grieving couples to experience closure. Under the name Saying Goodbye, they have organised cathedral services in various cities in mainland Britain this summer – London, Exeter, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Birmingham and Manchester. Everyone involved has donated their time – and contributions in kind – including clergymen and women, organists, choirs, florists and printers.

Parents will be invited to light a candle at the service to commemorate their loss. With the backing of the Miscarriage Association, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, Zoe was able to approach numerous cathedrals. "Their response was amazing," she says. "They immediately said this was exactly the kind of thing they should be doing, that there was such a need." from: guardian uk
