7 Pros And Cons Of Getting Pregnant In Your 30s

Pregnancy is one of the most fascinating things I have ever experienced. There is nothing like growing a human inside of your own body. Having given birth three different times, I feel like I learned more and more about the process and all of the weird (and usually normal) symptoms of pregnancy. Like, did you know that your baby pees in the womb? And do you know where that pee goes? They drink it. Kind of disgusting, right?! Here are 30 weird facts about pregnancy that you may or may not already know ...

1. Once you are about four months pregnant, your baby begins to urinate inside of you. In fact, they pee up to one liter a day! If that doesn't gross you out, knowing that your little one drinks it surely will.

2. Most women experience swelling in their feet during pregnancy. Because of water weight and other extra fluid, your feet can grow up to one full shoe size! In fact, some women's feet stay that size after their baby is born.

Much of the fertility talk aimed at women over 30 can be alarmist (ticktock!) or depressing (scary statistics!). But authors Christa Orecchio and Willow Buckley , a nutritionist and a homeopath, respectively, say there’s a more natural, less-fear-driven way to prepare for conception. In their new book “ How To Conceive Naturally: And Have a Healthy Pregnancy After 30 ,” they tell readers what foods they — and their partners — can eat to prepare their bodies for a baby.

“My practice was never a fertility practice, but I started getting women coming to me in their late 30s, 40s, struggling with fertility issues and having no success,” says Orecchio. “If you take away what the body doesn’t need and give it more of what it does, you’ll find balance. And these women all started getting pregnant. Six rounds of [in vitro fertilization] didn’t work, but this did.”

1. Prep work isn’t just for the ladies. There are foods men can eat to improve the quality of their sperm. Orecchio recommends royal jelly capsules, made of bee pollen, for both men and women, and black maca powder in tea form — “a conception superfood!” she says, due to its antioxidant properties — for men.

How many times have you heard your mom saying that conceiving in your 20s is the best? Or the people around you say that pregnancy post 30 is not a good idea?

All said and done, is getting pregnant after 30 really not advisable? Or is all that just a myth? This post will give you the answers!

A lot of factors determine your planning a baby in your 30s. A lucrative job offer, growing career curve, family responsibilities, etc. are some of the factors that influence your decision. However, studies indicate that it is always better to opt for pregnancy in early 30s than in the late 30s, when conceiving gets difficult. As you approach your mid-30s, it gets more challenging to get pregnant.

Most experts would say there's no one right time to start a family. But there are both advantages and disadvantages to giving birth at different ages: In your 20s, for instance, you'll have more energy to run after and care for your child but fewer financial resources and less personal life experience on which to draw; in your late 30s and 40s you may be more established financially but have a tougher time getting and staying pregnant and, afterward, keeping up with an active baby and toddler.

These are your most fertile years. Your periods are probably regular, and most, if not all, of them are ovulatory. Even now, however, you may not conceive exactly when you want to. The average woman between 20 and 24 years old has about a 20 percent chance each month of getting pregnant when she has unprotected intercourse.

Once you do conceive, your blood pressure will probably be checked at each prenatal appointment, even though most women in their 20s have only a small risk of hypertension during pregnancy. New research shows that you have about half the risk of gestational diabetes that women in their 40s do, which is why recent guidelines from the American Diabetes Association suggest eliminating the once routine test for gestational diabetes in women age 25 or under.
