I conceived at 38 and 43 years old with successful pregnancies. Not impossible. Really depends on your diet and state of health before you start conceiving. Start asap, as much organic raw green salads with sprouts and lightly cooked veg and lots of fruit as poss. Avoid peas said to be a slight contraceptive. Supplement with maca, spirulina, hemp, cacao wheatgrass powders in shakes made up with banana and nut milk or rice milks. I also took a good pregnancy multivitamin, and vitamin e and additional zinc. Carrot and apple juice. Body needs protein I was eating fish from time to time which my body seemed to like at the time. But as vegan best to substitute with lentils or tofu nuts and spirulina and hemp which is high in protein!!! Cut out alcohol completely, don't smoke or sleep with elec blankets. Keep mobiles away from womb area and when pregnant. Don't sit at computers all day long. If work with them wear protective crystal. Carry a rose quartz helps fertility. Positive thoughts affirmations, prayers to universe or whatever your calling is, relaxation, trust, acceptance. After making love may help to raise legs and hips in air to help sperm meet egg. Even heard of people doing headstands and pregnant straight away, though I am not recommending this. Calculate your ovulation date, better to make love couple days before egg is released so sperm is up there waiting for egg. Best to be in a good shape overall 3 months prior to starting about thinking of conceiving. Go for it, make your prayers. VIP don't get stressed if it doesn't happen straight away. trust your body and tune in. And remember our older generation where having babies up to their 50's. Why, sensible diet, less stress less additives and stimulants in food and more slower life pace. Best of luck and golden baby dust..
This is good advice. Thanks. I've heard that about peas too. I'm curious about carrying a rose quartz? Never heard of that before. Does maca come in a powder form? Others have recommended this to me. I know you can probably put it in smoothies, but I've also been told that for optimal fertility, it's best to have warm foods rather than cold because it keeps blood pumping and flowing. Do you know what else you can do with maca? And how much is safe to take per day?
Hi, I would not rely on maca totally. Its best to have a sensible diet with good nutrition of which you should see a nutritionist to learn what your body needs. I was personally advised to have fish oil supplements but did not like the idea and I used hemp in a smoothie almost daily to get my omega 3, 6 and 9. But I also ate fish at the time when ttc and pregnant. I personally used 1 teaspoon maca powder in a smoothie nearly daily before I got pregnant which regulated my menses. I also had wheatgrass, occasionally spirulina and hemp and banana and nut milk with it. However I stopped that after I became pregnant. Occasionally I would have maca and wheatgrass after the first trimester but I do not recommend maca personally when pregnant. Yes its good to have warm foods because in TCM they say its nice for the womb to be warm also at this tie of year its autumn so we should listen to our bodies and move with the seasons, colder eat warmer or warming foods. Maybe see an acupuncturist they can sometimes help unblock meridians. Also I think what is really important is to drink lots of water. Best of luck.
YOu can cook with maca, like the Peruvians do, but I do not know how much that changes the nutrients and benefits of it. I think probably can't do much harm but then the Peruvian sure the fresh root tuber probably and not the dried powder when it comes to cooking with it. They have high fertility over there.
