Pregnancy after 35
So today we're going to talk about age now and when you get into the late 30s even over 35, they start to call you advanced maternal age.
It sounds awful but that is what they classify it as when you talk to the doctors so if you are of advanced maternal age meaning you are over 35, understand that the number itself is somewhat arbitrary.
The idea is that your body gets older. Your eggs get older because as women we don't make eggs over and over the way that men make sperm. So ideally we want to have our kids young but of course life is how it is, our situations are different now, our careers, responsibility, family issue, health problem or we may not meet our partners.
Of course I am young !
Whatever the case may be, you might be older when you're having a kid. Older by reproductive standards, young still in life because of course we're all still young and we like to. We want to enjoy our life.
Essentially the number is there because they do research studies and they compare people and they've sort of grouped people between under 35 and over 35.
Essentially because it's the midway point between 30 and 40 they had to pick a number that made sense and then they would do research based on risk, finding out if there's risk to mother or baby.
They sort of have to classify women according to age group and category. So if let's say you have already turned 35 versus you're about to turn 35, it doesn't really matter, it just matters how old you are and more so than age, most important is how healthy you are.
So your eggs don't count your age or birthdays. They don't know exactly how old you are. It's the health of your body and eggs that makes a difference for fertility so we want to make sure that your body is as healthy as possible in order to have a healthy baby.
Risks with getting older
Now there are some risks as you get older, the pregnancy might be a little bit more risky. You might be more prone to having problems with your placenta, blood pressure or diabetes during pregnancy.
You might have more risk of having problems with a baby if you were unhealthy going into it or you had some sort of chronic condition or you had some sort of problems with the pregnancy.
Of course we want to pay attention to the pregnancy and to the baby. That doesn't mean that there is going to be a problem.
Most of the time these women are able to have healthy pregnancies and healthy babies so the idea going into it is let's say you already have a health condition.
Let's say you already had high blood pressure or an autoimmune disease or something else going into the pregnancy then of course you have to manage that chronic condition and any problems that are associated with that condition before going into a pregnancy.
Make it possible
That's first and foremost and that doesn't matter if you are 25, 35, whatever age you are, if you have health concerns you need to have those addressed.
The first things are always eat healthy, avoid alcohol and smoking like all that. Think like you're pregnant type of philosophy where you are going in as healthy as possible.
Gynecologist have to look at your egg quality, uterine, inflammation and toxin exposure and all these other types of things.
Genetics metabolism those are all the other areas for what they call unexplained infertility. It usually just means they don't have a diagnosis for you but something is going on and that's why you're not getting pregnant.
So doctor look at all of these things in several circumstances particularly with someone who is 35 to 40 where they're looking to have a kid and don't want to waste a lot of time going down the wrong path or doing a wait-and-see approach.
Sometimes we can get pregnant and we're not healthy. Our body doesn't have the right nutrients or something is going on with the sperm and that will actually increase your risk of miscarriage, so make sure you're healthy going into.
This way your baby is more likely to be healthy when they are in your body without any complications that could arise if you had any issues during your pregnancy or in your health prior to pregnancy and that goes for the male partner too.
