 I have done previous posts about tap water and miscarriage. This article explains how the chlorine in tap water may be responsible for a higher miscarriage rate.  When I was pregnant, I drank bottled water for this reason.  However, you may need to do some type of analysis on where your bottled water comes from also!  Read more:

Trihalomethanes (chloroform, bromoform, bromodichloromethane, and chlorodibromomethane) are common contaminants of chlorinated drinking water. They form when chlorine reacts with decomposing plant material, which is often found in water from surface sources.

Although animal data suggest some of the trihalomethanes may interfere with reproduction at high doses, little information exists on the relationship between trihalomethane exposure and miscarriage (spontaneous abortion) in humans.

We examined exposure to trihalomethanes in relation to miscarriage in a study of 5,144 pregnant women living in three areas of California (centered in Santa Clara, Walnut Creek and Fontana). These women were interviewed early in pregnancy about their water consumption and a variety of other factors that may influence pregnancy outcome. (That study is discussed in further detail in Swan et al, an analysis conducted on the same data).

Eighty-five drinking water utilities served the pregnant women’s homes. These utilities provided records of distribution system measurements of total trihalomethanes (TTHM) and, where available, the four individual trihalomethanes. The TTHM level in a participant’s home tap water was estimated by averaging all measurements taken by her utility during her first trimester. Tap water levels of the individual trihalomethanes (chloroform, bromoform, etc.) were estimated in the same manner.

Women who drank five or more glasses per day of cold home tap water containing at least 75 ug per liter of TTHM had a miscarriage rate of 15.7%. Among other women (those who drank less than 5 glasses per day and/or had tap water containing less than 75 µg per liter of TTHM) the miscarriage rate was 9.5% (Adjusted odds ratio for miscarriage of 1.8, 95% confidence interval 1.1-3.0).

Occupational hazards and miscarriage

There's quite a bit of conflicting information out there about what causes miscarriage and what doesn't. This article seems to do a good job of addressing some real workplace hazards for pregnant women - not just chemical hazards, but physical ones as well. Read more:

Physical Hazards
Women working in the manufacturing, agriculture, and service industries as well as those who work

as firefighters or nursing assistants often must perform tasks that are physically demanding. Because of the physiological changes that take place during pregnancy, including increased stress on the musculoskeletal system, intensive job-related physical demands have been associated with an increased risk for miscarriage, especially among women who have had 2 or more spontaneous abortions.______________

 In addition, a growing body of research has linked heavy lifting, prolonged standing, working the night shift, and working long hours during pregnancy with impaired fetal growth and preterm delivery.  Researchers have suggested several reasons for this: pooling of blood in the lower extremities when standing for prolonged periods, less blood returning to the heart because of the demands of the growing uterus, and interference with circadian rhythms, which ultimately affect hormone levels.

There are a number of uterine abnormalities which may impede conception and possibly lead to miscarriage.
Some of these abnormalities include an arcuate uterus, bicornate uterus, a septate uterus among others.  I was told I had an arcuate uterus when I underwent a hysterosalpingogram.  This test is where they inject dye through your uterus and into your fallopian tubes.  Usually this is done to see if

your tubes are open, but it also gives a nice outline of the shape of your uterus.

Many women do not even know that their uterus may not be normal shaped until they try to conceive and have some of these tests done.

Fish oils have been in the media for quite some time as a method to improve overall health by reducing inflammation.  I have a page on my website devoted to how fish oils can prevent miscarriage by improving the function of the placenta (

Here is another article about how fish oils can benefit pregnant women by reducing inflammation

The study by scientists at the University of Western Australia examined the impact of fish oil on pregnant rats and found that it addresses numerous medical disorders by reducing inflammation of the placenta.
While it has long been known that fish oil helps to enhance the development of the brain of the foetus, the study is the first to show that fish oil improves the functioning of the placenta.
The researchers found that consuming fish oil led to higher levels of resolvins in the placenta. Resolvins are formed from omega-3 fatty acids and have been shown to address inflammatory conditions.
About a third of women suffer from inflammatory conditions during pregnancy.

I had six miscarriages before I conceived my daughter and carried to term without complications.  I learned a lot along the way.  If you've never had a miscarriage before, it can be a confusing and scary experience.  There are signs that you may be having a miscarriage such as cramping (mild or severe), bleeding and spotting (although I had spotting with all my pregnancies, including my successful one), and changes in body temperature if you are monitoring your BBT. 
I devoted a page on my website to educating women on what they may not know about miscarriage (especially if you're over the age of 40 - but these things are true at any age).  This includes common terminology used by the medical community, how HcG levels are monitored and a number of other situations you may encounter if you are going through a miscarriage.

BBT and Miscarriage

I did try monitoring my body temperature when I was trying to conceive to help me pinpoint ovulation. I do recall with one of my pregnancies that miscarried, I continued to watch my body temperature. I do believe it changed, but probably not significantly...and I thought it might have been due to my error.  However, many women are very diligent about monitoring their BBT and they wonder if they can figure out if their pregnancy has miscarried based on a drop in body temperature.

I was always baffled by the term "chemical pregnancy"...actually it sounds kind of like something out of a Frankenstein movie - as if it is a pregnancy that was produced chemically.  Well, actually theres a much simpler explanation.  A chemical pregnancy simply means that conception did occur, but the pregnancy did not progress.  Here is an explanation from medical news today:


Doctors call it a chemical pregnancy because levels of the hormone human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) are initially elevated enough to produce a positive result on a pregnancy test but dip again before a doctor can see the gestational sac on an ultrasound.
Many women may not even know that they have experienced a chemical pregnancy if they are not regularly taking pregnancy tests.
In this article, learn more about chemical pregnancies, including the signs and symptoms, causes, and outlook.

A negative pregnancy test after a positive one may be a sign of a chemical pregnancy. The clearest indication of a chemical pregnancy is a positive pregnancy test result that is followed by a negative one.
These tests can take place either at the doctor's office or at home.
A chemical pregnancy does not always cause symptoms.
If it does, they may include:
  • mild spotting a week before an expected period
  • abdominal cramping, which is usually mild
  • vaginal bleeding that occurs close to the time of an expected period or shortly afterward
Advances in pregnancy tests mean that women can now identify pregnancies as early as the first day of embryo implantation.
However, research shows that up to 25 percent of pregnancies result in miscarriage before a woman has any pregnancy symptoms or misses a period.

Explanation of How Chromosomal Abnormalities Result In Miscarriage

Miscarriage and Recurrent Miscarriage

Wow... the more I read articles like this one, the more I realize how much of getting pregnant and staying pregnant involves luck.
My site:
 The study mentioned below looked at egg formation and the arrangement of chromosomes. It isn't a perfect process and getting the right number of chromosomes almost seems like a "hit and miss" process. Read more:
Fertility Bracelets, featured:  Kokopelli, Rose Quartz, Moonstone

During meiosis, fibres called microtubules attach themselves to the centre (kinetochore) of the chromosomes. The microtubules act like fishing lines and once a chromosome is 'caught' it is pulled to the opposite side of the cell from its partner.

But, before the microtubules hook the chromosomes, the researchers noticed that they herd them together into the centre of the cell. Despite this repositioning, almost 90 per cent of chromosomes were let off the hook only to be re-caught.

See Also: Miscarriage Over 40 (

"We saw that they [the microtubules] have to go through several tries before getting the connection right," says Ellenberg.
Third time lucky

In fact, some chromosomes were released up to six times, though most averaged three. Ellenberg says this means that the pathway that corrects the errors by uncoupling the chromosome and the microtubule is therefore heavily used and thus more prone to making mistakes — resulting in too few or too many chromosomes in the egg.

"Our findings provide a plausible explanation for the high rate of errors during egg formation."

Ellenberg adds that their observations make error correction proteins good candidates for age-related infertility.

"They form the basis to focus our future work on age-related female infertility, as it seems very likely that a component of the pathway that corrects these errors will be involved. The individual proteins that make up the machinery to correct the errors may simply not have a sufficiently long life-span to function well in very old oocytes," he says.

The Often Overlooked Parathyroid Gland and It's Relationship To Miscarriage

We frequently hear about the thyroid gland, but there is another gland called the parathyroid gland.
 It's not really related to the thyroid gland except it happens to be close by. However, the parathyroid gland controls our calcium levels and when a woman suffers from hyperparathyroidism, the miscarriage rate increases as calcium levels rise. This very informative site explains more:

Parathyroid disease (hyperparathyroidism) is not common and it usually affects people in their 50's and 60s and 70s... but some young people DO get hyperparathyroidism (see our graph of patient's ages on another page). Treating parathyroid disease almost always involves elective surgery that can be scheduled weeks or even months ahead of time. One of the few times when parathyroid disease is dangerous and requires expert care and thoughtful preparation is during pregnancy. The pregnant female is at risk for significant pregnancy problems and complications, but more importantly, the life of the baby is at risk. Furthermore, even a 'normal' pregnancy and delivery do not eliminate the the baby's risk for development problems within their endocrine system -- because of the mother's high

calcium levels. Lets look at some of these problems individually.


parathyroid and pregnancy. Hyperparathyroidism and pregnancy
The Risk of Miscarriage

Parathyroid Disease During PregnancyThe data about miscarriage (loss of the fetus) in women with hyperparathyroidism (parathyroid disease) comes from the medical literature and from our leading experience in this field. The bottom line, there is a dramatic risk for miscarriage in a mother with hyperparathyroidism. Well over half of all babies will be lost if the mother's parathyroid tumor is not removed. Importantly, the risk is directly related to the calcium level in the mother. Mothers with a very high calcium level (above 12.0 mg/dl) have the highest risk of fetal demise and death. Our recent study (by far the largest in the world) shows that the risk of fetal death is over 50% in women with calcium levels above 11.5, and as high as 85% when the calcium levels get near 13. This graph shows how the risk of pregnancy loss (miscarriage) increases as the mom's blood calcium increases.

The Side Effects of Green Tea

Guest Post By Ian Finlayson

The side effects one finds quoted for green tea are generally minor. They can form a long list but are really little different from the side effects you would associate with drinking any tea or any beverage that has caffeine and/or acts as a diuretic.
For example, you might find that consumption close to bedtime will not help insomnia if you are prone to that. As a diuretic it will aggravate urge incontinence. Excessive consumption of green tea may also increase the amount of stomach acid.
The tannin content in green tea might bring about constipation and a rise in blood pressure and possibly heart rate and increased blood sugar.
It all sounds most alarming when you list all the possibilities, but many of these factors could be the consequence of other factors in your diet. Reports of heartburn, upset stomach, irritability, headache, constipation, diarrhea and so on are things that most of us experience from time to time and could be
Fertility Amethyst Bracelet with elephant, feng shui click here
the result of the many different factors that constitute our total diet.


Of course regular consumption of massive doses of green tea - or any tea for that matter - will result in caffeine dependency and eventual toxicity and will lead to other psychological problems.
All of that has to be put into perspective, however. The caffeine content of green tea is relatively low, certainly much less than in coffee, and less than most other teas. You would really have to drinking abnormal quantities of it to end up with caffeine dependency, much more than you need to derive the benefit of its anti-oxidant properties.
When you weigh up that against the consistently reported benefits such as prevention of certain types of cancers, reduced the risk of heart diseases and lowering of total cholesterol levels together with improvement in the ratio of good and the bad cholesterol.
Add to this reports of its effectiveness as an alternative to other weight loss products by increasing metabolism without over stimulating the adrenal glands, and, of course, its anti-oxidant properties it is clear that the consumption of green in sensible, non excessive doses provides significant net improvement to our well-being.
Having said that, however, some reports discourage the consumption of green tea, certainly in large quantities, by women in the early stages of pregnancy, as the tannin, caffeine and catechins in green tea increase risk of miscarriage and neural birth defect in babies. Also high levels of caffeine have been linked to fertility problems
A study has also found that green tea can reduce estrogen levels however there is strong anecdotal evidence that green tea and other herbs have a beneficial effect on postmenopausal symptoms.
The answer surely is drink green tea in moderation and the benefits will far outweigh the negatives.

Superfertility and Recurrent Miscarriage

This article makes a really good point about women who habitually miscarry.  Rather than being labeled infertile, they may actually be "super-fertile".  The problem is their bodies aren't selective enough about the embryos they allow to implant.  If you are familiar with my story, I did get pregnant quite a few times naturally (even with only one fallopian tube) in my 40's.  Perhaps my body just was not selective enough.

But we have discovered it may not be because they cannot carry; it is because they may simply be super-fertile, as they allow embryos which would normally not survive to implant.'
Prof Macklon, working with colleagues at University Medical Centre Utrecht in the Netherlands, compared cells from the lining of the wombs of women who have suffered recurrent miscarriage and those with normal fertility cycles.
They found cells from those with recurrent miscarriage move towards embryos, encouraging implantation regardless of quality, but those from normally fertile women were selective.
Prof Macklon explained: 'Only around 30 per cent of every 100 natural conceptions makes it to a baby and the rest are lost early in pregnancy. Mercifully, most women remain unaware of these losses because they happen before they miss their period.
