Wow, I am just soooo happy to find this board!! I am 46 years old, pregnant with my first, due in August.

It's my own eggs - helped along with Clomid, and I had an IUI with donor sperm.

My first ultrasound is tomorrow, and I'm excited and nervous........

I just want to know that this is a healthy and viable pregnancy. I am planning on having genetic testing done, just wondering if anyone had the CVS procedure??

If so, what can you tell me about it?

Thanks so much and I wish you all healthy, happy pregnancies!!!

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.
