Trying To Get Pregnant At 44 Chances Of Downs Sydrome
Trying To Get Pregnant At 44 Chances Of Downs Syndrome
The difference between us and rich folks is that they can afford high-cost infertility treatment and donor eggs. Or in the past froze their own eggs.
Most pregnancies that happen at the age of 50 are either donor or previously younger egg freezing therapy.
Change your mindset when you see pregnant women, be happy for them, they would not want you to be sad. Feeling sad when you see the one thing you want most pushes it away from you.
No one would choose a baby with Downs Syndrome if they had an option, but the older we get the higher probability of a genetic defect. If you are going to go for a pregnancy then you need to be asking yourself what if you discover the baby has a genetic defect, will you continue or terminate. As long as you are clear in accepting either decision then go for it.
I know how hard it is to want to have a baby and it is not happening. I worked all my life caring for pregnant women in their most joyous time in their lives and I could not have a baby myself. It was more upsetting when I miscarried at 16 weeks for no reason and had to go back caring for pregnant women.
Many of my colleagues tried to shelter me from caring for patients going through miscarriages as they felt it would be too difficult for me. Yes, it was hard for me. Yes, it brought my own miscarriage emotions up for healing. But this is life. I choose never to be a victim. I choose to face my challenges head-on and try to understand the bigger picture in life.
Surrendering to the possibility that I may never have a child, but knowing I did my best to make it happen was my path to accepting my lot in life. Well for me this whole surrendering thing did end up with me getting pregnant despite the picture that was painted in front of me.
I was also very clear due to my age that I would have an amniocentesis to confirm the genetic status of my children and knew what personal option I would choose if I was having a Downs Syndrome child.
