I am 41 and 18 weeks along. I will be one month shy of 42 when he is born. I had maternit21 blood test at 11 weeks and I am so glad I did. It is a very new test that uses only your blood to test for chromosomal abnormalities. It is non invasive and better than the cvs or amnio. I highly recommend it if it is available to you. A bonus--I found out it's a boy at only 11 weeks along! This will be my second child. My daughter is 20 years old.View Thread
I am 41 and 14 weeks along. I already have a 20 year old daughter. I had the maternit21 blood test instead of the invasive procedures and i already know there is no chromosomal abnormalities and its a boy! check it out on the web. It is new, and if your insurance won't cover it--i think out of pocket here in michigan in $265. Worth every penny!View Thread
