Percent chance of getting pregnant unprotected,sick of being pregnant 8 weeks,i am pregnant at 40 risks - Try Out

Last week, I wrote about really wanting to get pregnant, but that Zika fears are, for now, delaying our timeline. A few days ago, I went to my OB for my annual exam, where I talked with him about our current plans, and also about how for several months earlier this year, we tried to conceive without success. That’s when he told me about a test I could take to basically determine whether, at the rather advanced age of 37 (grr…), it was actually even possible for me to still get pregnant.
Without the help of fertility treatments, that is, which my hubby and I have ruled out, since we already have three kids, and aren’t super pumped about increasing our odds of having multiples!
Before this conversation with my doctor, I was unaware there’s actually a simple blood test that can tell you how old and crickety your eggs are, and about how many you have left. As my doctor put it during our chat, the results of this test would tell us how likely it is that I will get pregnant without any interventions. He was by no means suggesting that I should go this route, just presenting the test as an option. On the other hand, what if I learn I have just one rotten, old egg and almost no hope of having another baby? Because then, there I’d be, out in the cold, just like, shivery, and probably massively depressed and despondent, and Meredith Grey-like.
The bottom line is, I view this test in a similar way as genetic tests I’ve been offered during pregnancy. Still, I guess there’s a part of me that wants to know everything I can about my health, and be as on top of our family planning situation as possible. I should add that we might have also gotten pregnant with the first try, but for me the safer gamble was jumping straight to adoption. I suspect the same is true for us, actually: in the 4 years that have passed since kidlet was conceived (in spite of birth control, no less) I feel like my body has gone through several wacky changes that have made having Kidlette harder, if not impossible. I guess it depends on the lengths to which you’re willing to go to have another baby. For anyone reading that wonders what the actual test is (since surprisingly it wasn’t actually shared in the article), its an AMH test, or Anti-Mullerian Hormone testing for ovarian reserve.
I had to let go of my dream of a third child, not due to fertility, but because of many other factors equally insurmountable. If you are sure you are NOT going to undergo fertility treatments to try for #4, then I wouldn’t bother with the test.
As more older women attempt to beat the biological clock and conceive, they are at greater risk for developing birth-related complications. Researchers at Tel Aviv University reviewed birth records from 2000 to 2008, specifically looking at the records of 177 women who gave birth at the age of 45 and beyond. Despite their celebrity, Kelly Presley (age 47), Celine Dion (age 42), and Mariah Carey (age 40), are older pregnant women who are at risk. I will never forget the face of a 45-year-old pregnant hospital worker who expired during birth. If you are a pregnant woman who is 45 and older, please seek the medical expertise from a maternal-fetal specialist, preferably one that’s affiliated with a teaching hospital. Tags: Biological Clock, Birth-Related Complications, Blood Clot, Cardiomyopathy, Donor Eggs, Dr. As i sit here writing this i am about to turn 47, have been divorced for 5 years, in a relationship with another man for the past 4- now engaged, and have two wonderful kids from my first marriage.
It is a pregnancy i will be terminating for many reasons-ranging from health, high risk previous pregnancy, to finances.
My first, and only biological child, i had at 26 years of age and my second was adopted when he was two (i was 38). I was rushed to the ER for uncontrolled bleeding and had to be given general anesthesia so that they could perform a D&C to remove the dead fetus. Two years after my miscarriage we brought home our beautiful son (2 years old) which we adopted from an orphanage.
Now that being said i made a choice a long time ago to not have kids beyond a certain age, namely 45. Morally, emotionally, physically, financially etc i don’t believe having kids beyond 45 is a good idea. I have seen mothers who had kids in their late 40?s and 50?s struggle and its difficult to watch. 2nd–In many cases the moms were either “too tired”, too sick, too burned out etc to keep up with the baby, toddler, pre-schooler, young child. 3rd–The age in which MOST men and women begin to experience various age-related illnesses, conditions, disabilities is in late 40s and beyond.
So the likelyhood of developing a condition which will prevent you from successfully parenting a baby or young child is far greater in late 40s and beyond than it is in your 20?s and 30s.

In todays economy–at least 40% of young adults between 18-27 are still living with their parents due to the inability to find work with decent enough wages to support themselves. 5th–I couldn’t imagine being 65-70 years old and too ill and too broke to be able to help out my young adult child (18-25 year old)-could you?
6th–You will most likely never see your child get married and have children of their own or even be able to be a source of emotional, physical and economic support for them during this period in their lives. Nowadays most young adults, for economic reasons, won’t marry until they are almost 30 or beyond. Ironically, they took good care of themselves and were physically active and it wasn’t until late 50s that diagnosis of heart disease, diabetes, anxiety disorder etc came into play.
If my mother had had a child in her late 40s or 50s I would be taking care of that child today (since my sister and brother are not in a position to do it) and my parents would deeply regret not being able to parent that child. The mentality that you are “very healthy and active” does not negate the fact that most disabling chronic conditions happen after the age of 45.
Before this my brother was a “vibrant” and “physically active” individual having served two tours in the military in his 20?s-30?s. His wife decided that parenting isn’t for her since at the age of 48, and with back issues, she finds it too difficult taking care of 3 little ones so she enrolled in school as an excuse to not have to parent. Keep in mind that neither myself or my siblings ever expected to have any kids of physical or financial issues in our 40?s. Before you start considering having more children in your 40?s and 50s my advice is to please please reconsider.
If this is your first child then i pray that you have the financial, mental and emotional resources to effectively parent that child. One more thing–to compare yourself to women who had kids in their 40s back in the “good old days” of the 1940?s and 1950s etc is a big mistake. Back then these women had the resources of extended families and the divorce and unemployment rate of their husbands was alot lower than it is today. Back then the cost of living was far lower in so far that only one spouse needed to work outside of the home. But what she also had was a huge family support who pitched in to take care of the other kids.
So even if his business had tanked they would have had enough money to take care of their kids.
I am proud to be a part of the American Resident Project an initiative that promotes the writing of medical students residents and new physicians as they explore ideas for transforming American health care delivery.
I am hesitant to review diet books because they are so often a tangled mess of fact and fiction. And if there’s almost no chance we could conceive on our own, then maybe that would be our answer. One pro: the results might spare me from having to go through that monthly emotional roller coaster when I take a pregnancy test, and get a negative result.
Sure, on the one hand, I might find out my eggs are in great shape and our chances of getting pregnant are pretty good, but it just hasn’t happened yet.
Knowing that was the case might save me from getting my hopes up each month that we’d get pregnant. But do I really want to know my dream of having a fourth child is almost certainly not going to be a reality? They are available for parents who want as much information about their babies as possible.
Will you wonder every month if you’re trying in vain because you know this test exists? That’s the test I had that showed my ovarian reserve was pretty much nothing when I was not even 30 yet. It would be a one time blow if I found out there was zero chance, instead of a monthly letdown for years potentially. Knowing it’s off the table is easier to deal with than keeping a lingering hope flickering in the background.
For women over 45, there is less than a 1 percent chance of getting pregnant using their own eggs. The majority of the women had IVF and received donor eggs, and 80 percent of the babies were delivered via cesarean section (C-section). Women who have heart disease should see their internists or cardiologists for a pre-pregnancy consultation prior to becoming pregnant.
Older Caucasian women typically die from hemorrhage, an enlarged heart from pregnancy (cardiomyopathy), or a blood clot. An adoption which most likely not had happened if i had given birth to my second child due to finances and the fact that we only wanted two kids.
While this could happen at any age the chances are far greater in mothers who have given birth beyond the age of 45.

Not to mention that child would most likely be saddened by not having had parents, in the typical sense, like other kids.
Even though you could argue that stuff happens at any age it is far likelier that it will happen in 40?s and beyond.
Otherwise you will most likely be bringing a world of hurt to yourselves and your children. She had grown kids who pitched in to take care of the baby and a husband who was gainfully employed in his own business and financially successful.
At the time I found it to be a cynical yet eerily accurate portrayal of the underbelly of academic medicine.
Teasing out their truth from falsehood is about as exhausting as delousing a long-haired elementary school student.
But the question becomes: Do you need the information if you wouldn’t plan to act on it? In this case, is knowing we have something like a one percent chance of having a baby, going to stop us from trying? Further more you could feel a bit more comfortable just stopping BC altogether and just going about your life.
Tested a second time by a different doctor and sent to a different lab – same results. My eggs might have been quality, but with so few it really was a gamble to try and make IVF work.
If I was told there was basically no chance, I could have closure and begin to move on, instead of holding onto a hope for something that likely won’t ever happen.
If you can no longer get pregnant, then you won’t, and knowing that ahead of time would not necessarily make each month less frustrating. Successful pregnancy for women over 45 is nearly always the result of in-vitro fertilization (IVF) and the use of an egg donor.
Women over 35, and especially those over 45 with underlying medical problems, should be treated prior to becoming pregnant. She unfortunately expired from underlying hypertension (high blood pressure) that was not properly treated, and for some reason her death affected me personally. The heart system undergoes a tremendous amount of change during pregnancy that includes an increase in the circulating volume of blood both in the body and in the heart, as well as an increase in its heart rate.
Older pregnant African American women usually die from hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, stroke, infection, or other medical conditions.
Despite potential complications, with the guiding hands of obstetrical experts, your pregnancy should be fine. Most feel helpless about improving their work conditions or solving technical problems in patient care. It immediately stopped us from wasting money on fertility treatments and turning it towards adoption (which has resulted in two daughters – biological sisters through foster care).
If you change your mind and WOULD consider some kind of ART, then knowing the results of the test would give you a better timeline through which to work. Even if one discovers that they have low ovarian reserve my understanding is that information can help plan appropriate next steps, such as IVF if necessary. After 18 years of a successful career he has been laid off for two years and unable to find work with a wage that will allow him to support his three kids (this despite two masters degrees).
You might find out you have a chance at AI, which is relatively noninvasive, and not nearly as expensive as other technologies. It makes more sense to know now, then trying for years, wasting money, only to eventually take the test and get the same results and now too old for fertility interventions to work. On the other hand if you find out your chances of conceiving naturally are great, that’s good too. We could still be trying fertility treatments and getting nothing and being childless if we hadn’t gotten that simple blood draw. But I see no benefit to discovering you are now infertile if you are not going to go the extra step.
Honestly, at 37 you’re too old to be prancing around this, take the test then move from there. A lot of people (myself included) think your crazy to put off trying just because of a disease that’s not affecting our country.
In such way I conducted IVF in Ukraine and successfully became mother after two IVF attempts.
