Pregnant at 43 and scared

It is ten times harder for a woman to become pregnant at 43 than at 37, doctors have warned.The rapid speeding up of a woman’s biological clock means that by the time she is 43, she will need to go through 44 eggs on average to produce just one normal embryo. Researcher Meredith Brower said that the number of eggs needed for a viable pregnancy rises ‘almost exponentially’ after 42, and urged women to freeze their eggs without delay.British experts said that while, ideally, women would have their babies in their twenties, the realities of modern life mean many have no choice but to wait. The research comes amid concern that growing numbers of women are risking the heartbreak of infertility by leaving it until middle-age to try to start a family. Education, careers, lack of money and the hunt for ‘Mr Right’ are all causing women to put motherhood on the back burner.

I follow and love your blog, but this is a topic I have either missed you addressing, or perhaps you haven’t addressed it.
For instance, quite a few years ago, when my girls were little, I was homeschooling them and Keith had a busy pediatric practice.
I discovered that while condoms and diaphragms are non-hormonal, there is also a copper IUD called Paragard that may be worth looking into.
Ultimately, we just had to decide together that our sex life and relationship was more important than possible discomfort from birth control, and we began talking to a doctor and exploring all our options until we finally found something that works for us. But five years later the adoption thing hadn’t worked for various reasons, and I found myself wanting another baby.
Sheila, if a couple agrees after prayerful consideration that a vasectomy or tubal ligation (perhaps during a c-section) is the right decision, then it would still be the right, prayerfully-made decision if one spouse should die and the other remarry. And as you do more research, you just may find that you’re more excited about sex because you understand your own body better.


NFP didn’t work for us at all, as we had two unplanned pregnancies and ultimately avoided sex for a while out of fear, which was hard on our marriage. I’ve been aware for a very long time, that God is in control, and birth control only makes us feel like we are in control of the whole process. It is minimally invasive, there’s no overnight stay, and in 2-3 days the dude is fine. And Keith ended up cutting back his practice half a day a week to give me an afternoon to myself, when he took the girls. I have never done well with hormonal stuff, and of course – no married couples really wants to use condoms. Were he to remarry, he may want to have a child with that new wife, and that would be a good thing to do. Our problem was that we made the decision after tragedies, and it likely would have been better to wait until the emotions weren’t as fresh. Talk to doctors together, research online together, and make this a problem to be solved by both of you. The overwhelming majority of women feel that any reference to harbouring a working uterus could jeopardise their chances of landing the role.The survey carried out by Glassdoor, an online jobs and careers community, polled 1,000 working women in the UK - 500 of whom have already taken maternity leave and 500 whom plan to do so in the future. But one of your needs is feeling close to your husband, and one of his needs is feeling close to you through a fulfilling sex life.
It can be done, and will definitely take some compromise on both sides, but there are new options all the time, and you may be able to find a non-hormonal method that works for you.


The procedure was no big deal (he had a little tenderness, but was totally better in a week) and has had no further side effects. And if you do get pregnant, God will be there to give you strength and help you love that baby and mother that baby. And with me understanding my body, it will help me understand my libido and pay attention more, too! We hate how condoms interfere with intimacy, and we don’t want to do anything hormonal.
We have sex, and in the after glow, I know he sends up a short prayer, asking God’s will in everything, but that if we could not get pregnant that would be nice.
For him a lot of the decision is what he feels emotionally and mentally capable of taking care of even more than financially. Personally, I feel God respects my husbands prayer much more because he is the head of the house, and he knows my hubby’s heart. He knows what he can reasonably do with the abilities God has given him and chooses to be a wise steward of those resources. Who knows how we will feel in the future, but for now – our peace and trust rests in God.
