Many months ago when I first began researching the net for pregnancy over 40, I came across Sandy Robertson’s websites and blogs and her book You Can Get Pregnant Over 40, Naturally.
I wanted to buy the book right then and there. But I thought, no, we are just getting started and we are doing it with the support and guidance of our naturopath and acupuncturist. We will be pregnant in no time!
Now, we are in Cycle 8 and I am delighted to say, I have bought and downloaded her book. Yea!
I am looking forward to reading what she has to say, the guidance and advice that she has to offer. I am looking forward to finding peace in the process once more. I am looking forward to following her advice on nutrition.
I ignore the chapter on weight because worrying about that is only problematic for my stress levels. I already know all the medical stats as well as all the naturopathic healing, support and successful results. The issue of weight in conception and pregnancy, and generally, is not as cut and dry as a couple of paragraphs. Those who haven’t ever had to deal with it, will never really understand the issues involved. There is so much more to it. What is important is being healthy and fit and having all the right hormonal and vitamin balances in the body.
Thus her chapter on nutrition is going to be invaluable to me. Eat well and exercise, reduce stress. Eat more fruit and vegetables. They are important factors in conception and having a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. Food is the one area that I struggle with and need to manage more effectively. I have so much trouble getting my spiritual and physical self connected. With any luck, Sandy will be able to assist me with this.
She also has a meditation CD that I can download. I think this will also be very helpful for me.
All these things, I hope, will bring about a more peaceful me and a physical me that is more receptive to conception. A healthier me, a more connected me, a more relaxed me, a pregnant me!!
