Sue Ellen Powell, 44, pregnant on 1st IVF cycleSue Ellen Powell, of Bridgeport had known all her life that she wanted to have children, but, for one reason or another, kept putting it off.

By the time she was 44, she decided she couldn't wait any longer, even though she didn't have a partner.

She decided to attempt pregnancy using IVF.

Powell said she was realistic about her chances for getting pregnant, but wanted to at least give it a shot.  

"The good news would be that I tried," Powell said. "Whether or not I got pregnant, I didn't want to deny myself the calling of being a mother. I would have been disappointed (if she couldn't conceive), but I did all I could."

But Powell got pregnant on her first IVF cycle and she was able to give birth to her daughter Liza, "a beautiful, healthy little girl."

-- Water is the number one drink in the world, but tea is the second most popular. At the rate that green tea is going, it may become the most often drunk of all the teas.

The antioxidants that green tea provides have helped increase the popularity of green tea in North America and around the world.

New studies of the medicinal benefits of green tea and a focus in American society on being healthier and fighting obesity has led to a surge in popularity of green tea.

In addition, the aging baby boomers are focusing on being healthy later in life and looking for ways to prevent common health problems like heart disease and cancer.

Today the question is: what is green tea's role in the woman's world? What does green tea do for fertility levels?

Should a pregnant woman drink more green tea in order to be healthier during the term of the pregnancy? What about when she is breastfeeding?

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost our precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted there will be no more babies in our house.
