Early Pregnancy Symptoms and Big Fat Positives
At 43 years old , against all odds I GOT MY BFP PREGNANT !!
Hello ladies , I , just like you was trying to read as much as I could about how to get pregnant over 40 . I'm 43 , I was ready for a 4th baby and I was told by 3 Obgyn and 2 fertility doctors that I was too old , eggs too old , 1 to 3% chance of getting pregnant at my age , risks too high etc etc etc .. I heard or read Nothing positive I must say ! I'm stubborn by nature and I'm a believer that if they did it on their own in the old ages that I could do it too !! I took matters in my own hands and I started changing a few things about my eating habits and exercise !!! 1) I don't smoke or drink and I was a vegetarian for about 8 months prior to start thinking of another baby and so , I decided to change my diet and start eating meat again ( chicken mostly , more cheese and whole wheat bread ) 2) started exercising : I ran 4 times a week for 2 miles every time and I started walking for 30 min after ovulation a few days a week ! 3) made a list of all the foods that promote blood flow and helps pregnancy and so I made a smoothie every morning combining all these ingredients !! My smoothie didn't look pretty but it sure tasted great 4)went to see my acupuncture a few times but didn't like it . 5) I tried to enjoy baby dancing and relaxed , I laid in bed for 30 min after BD and lifted my pelvis with a pillow . I never got up right after .i used the soft cup twice ( during 2-days ovulation and kept it in for 4-5 hrs each time . ) we were active everyday for 7 days during O . 6) hubby eats healthy and exercises everyday running mostly . We got him tested and his sperm count was high which was encouraging ! 7 ) I took my prenatal vitamins every day 8) I took PRIMEROSE OIL . I drank a lot of water and pomegranate juice and i had the actual grapefruit fruit every night .so yummy ! 9) took some supplements that helps improve egg quality And got my BFP 14 DPO !!! I'm sure for ladies out there that feel that there is no hope .. Believe me , if I can do it , so can you . Just take control of your life for the next few months , make the necessary changes , maybe it's exercising more or maybe it's to eat better or not drink or not smoke and I promise it will pay off . I'm sending baby dust to everyone ,hope this will inspire one person and make a change in their lives !
