CVS vs. Amnio

I just had my first d/a today and now have a choice between CVS and amnio. I had the amnio with my DS and assumed I would have one this time. The dr. mentioned having CVS because I could get the results sooner. I was just wondering who had done CVS and how it was? What is the recovery like? I am not concerned about the pain of the procedure, my amnio was painless, but anything I need to know? Also has anyone had both CVS and amnio and during different pregnancies and why was the choice made to do the other procedure?
I guess I was thrown a little because I assumed I would do the amnio but the CVS sounds like a deal if I can find out earlier if there might be a problem. I am 41 and had my DS at 38 so the percentages are not getting any better but still pretty darn good all will be okay. It would be nice to know earlier. I haven't had the chance to do much research yet on CVS so I want to make sure the reliability is as good as an amnio. Any information anyone can relay would be good. I am just relieved I made it to my d/a this time. I guess it's time to cross the next bridge.
