having children are no longer of paramount importance to couples. most of the time they put it off due to careers and before they realized it, age has been a factor in pregnancy.


Pregnancy is a kind of miracle. Especially so in that it proves that a man and woman can conspire to force God to create a new soul.
Robert Anton Wilson

Pregnancy is always a blessing. Not all women are given the opportunity to carry a child inside her womb, and among those who are blessed to carry were not all given the opportunity to give birth and see the miracle come to life.
In today’s age of technology and career oriented people, most women has put off pregnancy. There are also various reasons for not getting pregnant earlier such as, not finding the right guy, not being financially stable or just not getting pregnant. But for whatever reason that is, when a woman reaches the age above 40, the question that will pop to their minds is “Can I still get pregnant?”
Many experts say “Yes, the possibility of getting pregnant above 40 is very possible but statistics shows that a woman’s fertility decreases as she ages. However, one has to bear in mind that it may have nothing to do with her age as women are different in their own ways.”
The probability of conceiving compared to younger women is less due to the quantity and quality of eggs 40s women produce. By the age of 40, the ovaries released eggs that are likely to have chromosomal abnormalities meaning the risk of miscarriage and birth defects are higher. While this are partly true, there are always exceptions and with the availability of natural remedies and technology women aiming to get pregnant even in their late years will be able to do so.

Why get pregnant

Why get pregnant? Well, here are some reasons to be pregnant:
1. Your co-workers and even people you meet on the streets are extra nice to you (I love this so much!).
2. You have every reason to send your partner out (even in the middle of the night) and buy foods you “crave for.”
3. Buying maternity dresses.
4. Pampering yourself.
5. Choosing names.
6. Buying things for your baby and not just for your “godsons or goddaughters”
7. Decorating the nursery room.

10. Lying in bed with your partner's arms around you and your bump, knowing that love has created a new life.
11. Knowing that after sometime you will be a full pledged mom.
12. Touching those little hands and feet.
13. Sleeping while your little one holds your pinkie.
14. Being called “Mommy.”

Steps to get Pregnant

So ladies lets not our age stop us from getting pregnant. Here are ways how to get pregnant at 40:
1. Consult an OB Gyne.
Tell your doctor of your plans of getting pregnant. Submit yourself and your partner to undergo testing in order to determine your fertility rate and check for existing health problems and complications as early as possible. Do not attempt or resort to advance technology of getting pregnant without first trying the natural ways to get pregnant.

2. Stay fit and healthy
Manage your weight and watch what you eat. Avoid junk foods. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. Drink lots of water. Reduce sugar intake.
Take some light to moderate exercises.
Stop smoking and avoid secondhand smokes.
Stop drinking alcohol
3. Take folic acid supplement in order to reduce neural tube defects.

4. Discuss with your partner the pros and cons of getting pregnant at your age and make sure both of you are read for it.

5. Always consult your OB Gyne . Follow up on check-ups and heed their advice.

6. Pray and ask God to give you a healthy pregnancy.

Age is just a number. You can even be pregnant at 50 if you desire to. Nothing and no one should stop you from being a parent. Make it your priority and achieve it with the help of your consultant.

It is far more challenging and maybe difficult to get pregnant at 40 or 50 compared to if you are in your 20s or early thirties but getting pregnant is not impossible. Remember that pregnancy is a miracle, a blessing from God. And miracles happen when you least expect it.
