INOSITOL, MYOINOSITOL TO HELP PREVENT MISCARRIAGE

Inositol is one of the B Vitamins and I've written quite a bit about how it can help improve women's fertility in a number of ways.  Inositol can also help prevent miscarriage, especially for women with PCOS.  This article explains how inositol can help:

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) occurs when a woman some form of insulin resistance and can lead to many other symptoms. Common symptoms for PCOS include menstrual cycle changes, difficulty conceiving, recurrent miscarriages, unexplained infertility and other health concerns. What is most interesting is that MANY cases of PCOS only have a few of the symptoms and is one the most common missed diagnosis that we see at our clinic. progesterone levels.
Many patients with PCOS have associated immune issues and blood clotting issues caused by the insulin and glucose imbalances. These need to be addressed to have the maximal effect on preventing
miscarriages and treating the infertility associated with PCOS.
Thus, women with PCOS may have great difficulty getting pregnancy. Additionally, women with PCOS are likely to experience pregnancy loss. Myo-inositol is a substance much like vitamin B. It is used to help women with PCOS conceive and may also help avoid miscarriage. Although evidence suggests that Myo-Inositol is helpful, many people are confused as to how to use it properly. It has excellent anti-inflammatory properties and reduces much of the inflammation associated with the immune component of PCOS.

HYPOTHYROID AND MISCARRIAGE

Thyroid Gland Must Function Properly To Avoid Miscarriage

I've written many times about the fertility and thyroid connection. Here is an article about how hypothyroidism may be a contributor to recurrent pregnancy loss:

Absence of thyroid hormones essential for the growth and metabolism of the foetus has a significant relationship with recurrent pregnancy loss (RPL) in the first trimester, a study published in the Indian Journal of Medical Sciences has said.

Recurrent Pregnancy Loss (RPL) can be defined as three or more consecutive spontaneous pregnancy losses before 20 weeks of gestation period.

SEE ALSO: MISCARRIAGE AND THYROID (getpregnantover40.com)

The research was conducted on 163 non-pregnant healthy women, who had had two or more spontaneous consecutive first trimester pregnancy losses, with 170 healthy women without a history of abortion as a control group.

The results indicated that hypothyroidism was found in 4.12 per cent women with RPL while the deficiency was found only in 0.5 per cent of the women comprising the control group, who had no history of abortion.

"If an expectant mother suffers from hypothyroidism, she does not have sufficient hormones needed for growth and development of her foetus and has a greater chance of suffering a miscarriage," the study said.

CHEMICALS IN DRINKING WATER...MISCARRIAGE ASSOCIATION?

Can Tap Water Lead To Miscarriage?

Whether or not to drink tap vs. bottled water continues to be debated. The following article discusses chlorination and whether or not it contributes to miscarriage.
The article also discusses other chemicals which may be found in drinking water. Read more:

The study uncovered no clear-cut evidence that trihalomethanes harmed women or their developing infants. The work did suggest, however, that brominated compounds and total organic halides at normal-range levels in purified drinking water might modestly increase the risk of miscarriages.

"These latter findings suggest that we or others should take a closer look at individual and groups of

chemicals that might have a negative effect on pregnancy," Savits indicates. "I don't want to downplay those findings and say they were perfectly reassuring because they were not. But overall--on balance--I'd say this work moves the evidence in a reassuring direction and should serve to lessen concerns."

HOW I OVERCAME RECURRENT MISCARRIAGE

My Experience With Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage

Most of the time, we can't really figure out why it happens...we finally get pregnant, then, BAM, it's gone. 
Miscarriage seems like a cruel trick that the universe plays on you. You are so elated to finally become pregnant only to have all your hopes, dreams, and plans for the future end in miscarriage. You ask yourself, was it something I did? Did I exercise too much? Did I eat or take something I shouldn't have? And for many women, things get even worse when this happens over and over again.
I had multiple miscarriages (including 2 ectopic pregnancies) until I joyously carried my last pregnancy to term. While all of this was going on, I went through every feeling in the book.
Not only was I jealous of most of the pregnant women I saw, I was also angry and down on myself for not being able to have a baby. That's why women are here on this earth, right? To procreate? I felt
http://getpregnantover40.com/miscarriage-memorial-jewelry.htm
Miscarriage remembrance necklace
hopeless and alone. Nobody could tell me why this was happening.
All of these emotions are normal and my best advice is to feel every one of them. I screamed, shouted and got these emotions out of my system. The more you hold it inside, the more toxic these emotions become. Now that I have the benefit of hindsight I can share my insights:
Give yourself time to grieve. Acknowledge that this was a child you lost, not just a cluster of cells. You might want to have a private funeral or memorial. Light a candle and say a prayer for your baby. You may feel like you need to start trying to get pregnant again, but it may do you good to feel your pain before moving on. It really is a relief to just get mad, to not be strong, and to fall apart - even if for just a short time.

Recurrent miscarriage can be overcome. Don't think pregnancy is impossible. Miscarriage is a common occurance. Most women who have miscarriages go on to have one or more children.

I was able to regain control of my body and have a perfectly normal pregnancy without medical intervention - even after six miscarriages. This proved to me that I can create my own reality. I'm a firm believer that you attract what you think and if you're in a constant state of expecting failure, it's hard to make room for success.

Once you've moved through the grief and pain, dare to dream again. I know it's hard to imagine success when you've dealt with so much disappoinment, but you have to know that this can happen, you can get pregnant. Make an inviting environment for your baby to come into. Think good thoughts, this will attract what you want in your life.

CALCIUM-MAGNESIUM NEEDED FOR HEALTHY PREGNANCY

Calcium and Magnesium Needs for Pregnancy and Postpartum

Guest Post By Dr Dean Raffelock

As a nursing mom you need about 1200 milligrams of absorbable calcium per day. Calcium is a mineral that the body uses for many things: during pregnancy it helps form baby's bones and teeth along with helping make breast milk, regulate blood pressure, heartbeat, water balance in the cells and muscle contractions. There are many foods in addition to vitamin supplements which will help you increase your calcium.
http://getpregnantover40.com/saint-gerard-for-fertility.htm
Saint Gerard and Saint Rita For Fertility and Pregnancy Protection
During pregnancy and lactation your body uses calcium that is stored in your bones to build your baby's skeletal system and help form breast milk. So not only does baby need calcium, but you do too! If baby is taking stored calcium from your body during the nursing process, it makes sense to both take a calcium supplement and eat calcium rich foods. The bonuses for getting the right amount
of calcium will mean stronger bones for you and helping you to avoid osteoporosis. There have been studies, which show that postpartum women getting sufficient calcium, more easily reclaim their pre-pregnancy weight.

SEE ALSO: FOODS FOR FERTILITY AND PREGNANCY AND HOW TO PREPARE THEM (Getpregnantover40.com) 

 

Taking the right kind of calcium is crucial. The majority of prenatal vitamins are very poor quality and contain a form of calcium called calcium carbonate. Calcium carbonate is from stones and shells and very difficult for your body to digest and utilize. Blood tests that show how well calcium is absorbed into your cells reveal that a form of calcium called calcium citrate is the form of calcium best absorbed. 600 mg of calcium citrate is absorbed better than 1200 mg. of calcium carbonate. It is also very important that you take your calcium separately from iron because these two minerals compete with each other and can block the absorption of both. I recommend you take a morning high quality prenatal vitamin that contains iron and no calcium and that you take a calcium citrate (600 mg.) and magnesium citrate supplement (in a one to one ratio) at night. The nighttime calcium and magnesium supplement will often help you sleep better too.
The Recommended Daily Allowance
The Daily allowance for women is 1200 milligrams during pregnancy and lactation. Most prenatal vitamins do not contain enough, easy to absorb calcium.. Many doctors now tell new mothers to continue taking their prenatal vitamin for several months after pregnancy. So while nutritional support after pregnancy is a good idea, your prenatal, in most instances, will not supply you with sufficient calcium. Do not expect your prenatal vitamin to support your post pregnancy needs.
To take 1200 units of calcium as a supplement, you would need to take it more than once per day for the body to process and metabolize it. This creates a dilemma if you are taking a multiple vitamin that contains iron, as iron and calcium are best absorbed into the body separately.
We at Soundformula Recommend
That you get half of your calcium from vitamin supplementation and half from food sources. Take calcium at night away from your other nutrients and eat a diet in calcium rich foods. Here is a list of calcium rich foods:
Each food listed below is based upon milligrams per 100 grams of an edible portion = a 3 ounce serving size
Nutbutters such as almond, hazelnut and sunflowerhave around 60 to 70 milligrams of calcium.
Add vinegar or lemon juice when cooking dried beans or leafy greens. This aids in calcium availability and decreases gas formation.
Food Increased Calcium Intake
Kelp 1093
Swiss925
Cheddar Cheese750
Dulse 296
Collard Greens250
Turnip 246
Barbados Molasses 245

Goat Milk 129
Dried Figs 126
Sunflower Seeds 120
Whole Milk 118
Buttermilk 121
Cottage Cheese 94
Spinach 93
Cooked Lentils 25
*Each food listed above is based upon milligrams per 100 grams of an edible portion = or a 3 ounce serving size.
Research shows that the nutrient magnesium may play an important role in health. It may aid in regulating blood pressure, and may be of benefit for premenstrual disturbances and fatigue. And magnesium deficiencies may be far more common in the United States than doctors realize. The recommended daily intake of magnesium is around 300 milligrams per day. Add to that another 100 milligrams if you are pregnant or nursing.
Magnesium plays a role in the synthesis of proteins and this makes the mineral important for the health of tissues in the body. Like calcium, magnesium (about 60% of it) is found in the bones. The remaining 40% is found in muscle and soft tissue. In teeth, magnesium interacts with calcium to maintain tooth enamel. It may interact with calcium in other ways too as most calcium rich foods also supply a good source of magnesium. Like calcium, magnesium is a mineral that helps to promote relaxation.
Take calcium/magnesium vitamin supplements to promote restful sleep and provide you with nutrients your body needs and you need to be sure to eat calcium rich foods such as the ones listed.

INSULIN RESISTANCE AND MISCARRIAGE

Miscarriage, Insulin and PCOS

Women who have PCOS usually have insulin resistance which can lead to infertility and miscarriage. But, as the study below talks about, even women who have not been diagnosed with PCOS can also have insulin resistance which can lead to repeat miscarriage.
Visit: www.getpregnantover40.com for more miscarriage and pregnancy articles 
  Before I was pregnant and when I was pregnant, I had a number of test for my blood glucose and they were always normal, however many older women who do get pregnant have a problem with blood glucose levels.   Read more:

From the article:
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-bracelet.htm
Amethyst elephant fertility bracelet

Craig and her team decided to investigate whether women without polycystic ovary syndrome who had suffered miscarriages repeatedly might also have insulin resistance. They report their findings in the September issue of Fertility and Sterility.

The researchers evaluated 74 women aged 22 to 46 who had suffered at least two previous miscarriages, comparing them with 74 similarly aged women who had at least one child. The control women and the study group were also similar in terms of their body mass index (BMI), a measure of weight in relation to height used to gauge obesity.

Among the women prone to miscarriages, 20 (27%) were insulin-resistant, compared with 7 (9.5%) of the women with children, the investigators found.

"Mechanisms to associate insulin resistance with recurrent pregnancy loss are unknown," the authors write. "One hypothesis is that insulin resistance causes an uncontrolled diabetic-like state in the fetal environment resulting in increased first trimester loss (of pregnancy)."

FATHER'S DAY AFTER MISCARRIAGE

Men Suffer From Miscarriage too

Some of you may want to share this article with the man in your life.  We all know how hard miscarriage is for women, and most of the sympathy and attention is focused on them after a miscarriage.
Men need support after a miscarriage too and this article gives one man's experience and advice:

Understanding a Father's Road to Recovering From a Miscarriage

Guest Post By Russell Mosley

If you have ever wondered how a father feels when he has suffered the loss of his child through a miscarriage, I Thank You. Though a father does not encompass the ability to carry his child within the depth of his body, he carries his child in the depth of his soul. Very similar to when a mother feels the kick of her child within her womb, so does the father feel his child within his soul.
Hidden within that exterior of masculine control is a spirit suffering from its greatest loss. As fathers
we are suppose to protect. We are supposed to encourage and support the lives of those that mean the most to us. Though we may be silent in our expressions of this disconnect in our spirit, as our child moves on to fulfill their new purpose in God's comforting arms. We are angry, not angry because the world may not understand how we feel or the world may expect difference in our emotions. It is because we could do nothing to stop this horrible event from happening.

We lost more than the world will ever understand. A part of our soul will forever remain in that very spot in which we lost our child. Whether it was in a hospital, home or vehicle, it doesn't matter. That very spot will forever hold the worst of our memories. I can personally recall the very first day that I drove passed the hospital in which my child departed into God's arms. It was as though my entire life had just been summed up into one 2 minute period as I recalled the moment in which the doctor announced that my wife and I had lost our child.
Though it was more than 2 weeks later, I felt compelled to visit the outside of the hospital and pray for my child. I am sure that in these emotions I am not alone. I share no special gift that I alone have been rewarded. I know that what I was feeling exists in the spirit of any father that has lost his child.
In the tragedy of a miscarriage, there exists tremendous loss in the lives of any family. In many cases the expectations of this loss is minimized to physical tragedy. Others tend to forget that as parents our spiritual connection to our children is just as strong as our connection to their physical existence.
As a father who has personally experienced this tragedy, I can honestly tell you that I would give up all that I have accomplished in my life to be able to reverse the tragedy of those 2 minutes in which the doctor announced my family's loss.
But I also realize that even in the depth of tragedy there exist opportunity. In the remainder of this article I would like to offer my awareness of these opportunities to those fathers that have also shared in this life changing tragedy.
In that moment, at that time, for many reasons, we as fathers feel an overwhelming thrust of loss visit our bodies. This loss is not because we are ill, confused or angry. It is because we realize that we were given a few of God's greatest gifts. These are the gifts of sharing our spirit with the unseen, loving the idea of the unknown and believing in the existence of the soon to come. Each of these gifts encourage God's greatest opportunity, the opportunity to love and be loved unconditionally. At that moment, we convince ourselves that this love has left our bodies and nothing feels worse than this disconnection of its unconditional embrace.
But I have learned that our children never leave, they never exit and they never separate their embrace. Their fight to remain in our hearts and linked to our spirits never end. Only we can disconnect their embrace. Contrary to what the world may recommend in our healing, the physical absence of our children does not have to encourage a spiritual disconnect.
The love that is shared between a father and his child can withstand any circumstance that life can offer and is more powerful than the sadness that this tragedy can encourage. We as fathers must embrace the strength that exist within this unconditional love that we share with our children, and through this embrace we must live our lives in the manner that would represent our existence in fatherhood for the short period that our children's physical existence blessed our lives.
I believe that wherever we will go, our children will forever gaze into the vision of our lives with the same innocence that we could imagine to exist when we think of them spreading their arms for their father to embrace them with the love in which they are most familiar.
How do you feel about a father's road to recovery from a miscarriage? I'd like to know....

and free-form arginine from supplements. Food-source arginine is found in abundance in turkey, chicken and other meats. Nonfood-source arginine is called L-arginine and is created through a fermentation process which separates arginine from all other proteins. Free and bound arginine is found in abundance in human male sperm and arginine has been found to stimulate sperm motility.
2. Carnitine

ASTROLOGY-MISCARRIAGE CONNECTION

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:

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.

____________
For More On Preventing Miscarriage and Enhancing Fertility Over 40, Visit: getpregnantover40.com

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.

WEIGHT CAN BE A FACTOR IN MISCARRIAGE

Weight and Fertility

Guest Post By Alexandra Beris, M.D.

There is a definite association between a woman's weight and her capability of becoming pregnant. Being overweight oftentimes affects the menstrual cycle, causing irregular cycles or straight out amenorrhea (lack of periods).
http://getpregnantover40.com/fertility-necklace.htm
Fertility Necklaces click here
The underlying mechanism responsible for this is lack of normal ovulation. Women who are overweight or obese are significantly more prone to ovulatory problems as compared to women of normal weight (see the explanation below). In other words, overweight women may either have a poor quality ovulation, or may not ovulate altogether. Under these circumstances, since no egg is produced by the ovaries, conception is impossible.
Why does obesity affect ovulation? Well, here's the medical explanation: Fat cells naturally produce
estrone, which is a hormone of estrogen type. This occurs during the normal metabolism of fat cells, due to the conversion of a precursor hormone called DHEA into estrone. The more fat cells one has in the body (i.e., the greater one's weight), the more estrone will be generated by these cells and released into the bloodstream. This in turn suppresses the hypothalamus and pituitary gland (which are responsible for regulating the ovarian function), and leads to ovulation problems including anovulatory cycles (i.e., absence of ovulation).

SEE ALSO: MORE ABOUT DHEA FOR FERTILITY AND OVULATION (getpregnantover40.com) 

This link between excessive weight and fertility is scientifically proven and has been amply documented. Lately, however, studies have proven that fertility may be affected even in overweight women with normal ovulatory function. The mechanism responsible for this is not clear, but is quite likely linked to a poor quality of ovulation, probably due to the altered balance of hormones in the organism (i.e., too much estrone versus estradiol). Estrone, the hormone produced by fat cells, is a weaker estrogen hormone than estradiol (the hormone produced by the ovaries). The altered ratio of these hormones in overweight women may lead to ovulation of poor quality, i.e. the release of an egg Copyright 2008, med-solver.com All Rights Reserved which is not ready to be fertilized.
Even if such an egg is fertilized, the implantation of the fertilized egg in the uterine wall may be impaired. In other words, due to the altered hormonal balance in the body, the uterus is not ready to accept the fertilized egg. In such cases, the product of conception is lost in the very early stages (days after fertilization occurred), and the woman is never aware that fertilization even took place.
To take it one step further, overweight women who do get pregnant are at greater risk for miscarriage and other pregnancy complications, including pregnancy-induced diabetes and hypertension.
The fertility treatments currently available rely on stimulation of ovarian hormone production in the body, which may unfortunately result in even more weight gain. Therefore, an overweight woman who successfully undergoes fertility treatments is quite likely setting herself up for a higher risk pregnancy.
In conclusion: Excessive weight is a problem that should be addressed prior to becoming pregnant. A judicious weight loss program may restore the normal ovulatory function and avert the need for fertility treatments altogether. A weight loss program meant to restore normal ovulation and fertility is greatly augmented by the following:
  • Vitamin and Mineral supplements
  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Omega3 supplements or foods naturally rich in omega3 fatty acids (e.g. wild fish, walnuts, etc)
  • Increased fiber intake, preferably from fresh fruit and vegetables
  • Adherence to a healthy lifestyle, which means proper physical exercise and a healthy diet
Anecdotally, the vast majority of women affected by infertility which I encountered in my practice were also overweight or obese. Most were not aware or chose to ignore their weight problem as a cause for their failure to conceive.
Again, when seeking help from a fertility clinic, it is quite likely for the weight problem to be entirely overlooked, and for the patient to be started right away on heavy-duty hormonal treatments. So, one has to make an individual choice to address excessive weight prior to seeking such treatments.
