Pregnancy over age of 35

Getting pregnant after 35 years of age is becoming much more common than it used to be but women can still be concerned about the risks for mother and baby.
Egg production peaks between the ages of 24-26 and so having a baby at 35 or over can be an uphill struggle as your natural fertility has already taken a dramatic decrease.
Susie believes that taking hold of your life, keeping healthy emotionally and physically then you have every chance of having a happy and healthy pregnancy after the age of 35. A woman's fertility naturally decreases with age and so getting pregnant after 35 is not going to be as easy as if you were in your twenties, which is the natural peak of your fertility. However even though chances of getting pregnant after 35 are going to decrease it does not necessarily mean that it won't happen or that you will even have trouble at all.
Susie says the main thing that prohibits women over the age of 35 from getting pregnant is the worry and stress of not being able to fall pregnant. If you've been trying to have a baby for over 6 months and have not had any success then it might be time to see a fertility specialist so that they can work out the best way for you and your partner to move forward. In Vitro Fertilisation (IVF) treatment can be an option for some couples, but the success rates with this treatment also decrease with age so it is worth really talking this through with your partner and the health professional. Susie's advice is: "When you are pregnant continue what you started when you were trying to conceive because your body will need the same things to create your baby.
Talk to your Dr about medication - Some forms of over the counter or prescribed medicines are not suitable for pregnant women so once you have got the confirmation that you are pregnant talk to your doctor about any medication that you take. Go to regular Antenatal classes- Because of the increased risks for pregnant women over the age of 35 it is incredibly important that you attend regular antenatal care.
Exercise- Susie wouldn't recommend taking on any new exercises when you're pregnant, so if you didn't run before pregnancy, this is not the time to start. Keep relaxed- This can be harder said than done but a happy mother is usually a the key to a happy baby so take some time to really pamper yourself during your pregnancy.


There is no denying that having a baby after 35 years of age increases the risks from conception to birth as your natural egg reserve has already started to diminish but this does not mean that you will definitely encounter these problems.
The chance of miscarriage increases dramatically over the age of 35 and so in the first trimester of pregnancy it is very important that you see your health advisor regularly so they can help in any way to reduce the risk. As well as this there is an increased chance that if you do become pregnant, your baby could be born with a genetic abnormality, most notably Downs Syndrome, the number of cases is approximately 1 in 300 in pregnancies of women over 35. There is also an increased risk for pregnant women over the age of 35 to develop high-blood pressure or diabetes which can be a big problem for your baby.
This all sounds scary but the more that you look after yourself, the larger the chance that your pregnancy will be as normal and healthy a pregnancy as someone in their twenties.
There are similar risks with pregnancy and having children that we also know, like the risk that your baby may miscarry, or have a genetic condition. Yes, we all hear about the latest the greatest celebrity undergoing fabulous fertility treatments so they can conceive their child, all at age 40+ with no problems. Now remember that ALL of these risks are present in you and me from the get go, no matter what our age, race, health, social status, whatever.
It’s harder to get pregnant because your egg quantity and quality is less than before and dramatically decreases as time goes on.
Here you can see the relative risk of having a trisomy (third copy of a chromosome) in your baby based on your age. Work with your care provider if they feel taking an over the counter medication is a good option for you.
With all three of her children, she had pre-eclampsia and naturally went into labor during her six month of pregnancy, through no increased fault of her own.
If you know something is present, like a genetic abnormality, you can test for your likelihood of it being present in your baby during your pregnancy.


We've looked into all this plus how to boost your chances of conceiving and how to keep you and your baby healthy throughout your pregnancy. Susie says: "With anyone over 35 their age can act as a mental and physical block when they are trying to get pregnant.
They can create a health record that will keep any information about your menstrual cycle, previous pregnancies and any health problems to make sure that you get the right help that you need as soon as you need. Before you think about getting pregnant it might be worth starting yoga classes so that you have a form of exercise that you can do while pregnant. While some women like to have the occasional alcoholic drink during pregnancy they are strongly advised not to, especially in the first 3 months as this can greatly increase the chances of miscarriage. There is also an increased risk of eptopic pregnancies as well as placenta previa (where the placenta lies low in the uterus, partially or completely covering the cervix), preeclampsia and placenta abruption (where the placenta separates from the uterine wall). I do understand the risk involved in late age pregnancy, but as of now, I am not prepared financially to have a child. I had no idea that Down Syndrome was so common, and that there was correlation with the age of the mother.
I had no idea that there was much difference to begin with when it came to being pregnant, whether your young or older.
