Advanced maternal age

October 27, 2015

Hi All,

 

I feel like I have been a little absent from blogging and writing of late, I promise it's for a good cause. Truth is I have been taking time out to nurture my pregnancy after a painful loss last year.

 

This time around I was forced to slow down, take some me time and also explore alternative therapies like herbs, reflexology and acupuncture to help things along.

 

Knowing that I was extremely fertile I didn't buy this age thing, but month after month of waiting and I started seeing mother nature as this cruel control freak, trying to block my stroller pushing dreams.
I now realize she was just being polite: trying her best to give busy women like me some clear warning signs, without insensitively coming right out and saying, "Um, no lady, this is not happening". The doctor actually suggested I go straight to IVF as my eggs were probably "not good" (yes, his exact words!) I wasn't even offered a round of turkey basting. Lucky for us, right before starting the IVF we defied his premonition and fell pregnant, Yippee to me :)

So, here I am 26 weeks later. I've reached the advanced members club called "almost third trimester", currently hospitalized for a three week stay to keep this baby from arriving too early! I'm almost afraid to say it, but yep, it's slightly tortuous at 42.

I have the perfect, heathy, beautiful baby growing inside me but me as a vessel is not conditioned to hold him without bed rest it seems. My son is this moving ray of sunlight that follows me everywhere saying, "Mum, hang on now, slow down, I'm still growing in here. Despite his violent kicking episodes I imagine him a kind, whimsical, sponge of knowledge, smiley, cuddly little man. Oh yeah, I am totally fine with his perfection I mean I waited long enough for him, he damn well better be this perfect lol.
In the big picture of life's blessings, I won the lottery, and I can't complain. Let's face it having a child after 40 is a miracle in itself. Top that with the list of potential complications I have and hope to dodge in this stay.

I promise I will be back with more posts and informative articles after this journey, until then. Stay tuned.


Fiona
