They see many 45-50 year old moms

We had our CVS [Chorionic villus sampling] test yesterday and have to wait 2 weeks for results, so I'm trying not to obsess. But the nurse was very comforting about the age-related factors I'm worried about, and even called me "young," saying they see many 45-50 year old moms now. So cheers to all of us!

And to everyone in the fertility chase, let me just say how much I wanted to call the pessimistic fertility docs I saw in the city we lived in before -- we were led to believe we'd never be pregnant (at least not without IVF [in vitro fertilization] ), and now here I am COMPLETELY surprised, watching this being move around on the ultrasound screen! It's still unreal. You just never know what life has in store.

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 that 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 that there will be no more babies in our house.
