I have a question for my 40 year old friends.
Make a pregnancy ticker
I am 44, and really haven't been treated so differently by my doc than when I gave birth at age 29.
I personally requested CVS testing, level 2 US, an echocardiogram of baby's heart.
I am due in 4 weeks, and am still being monitored just as usual.
I'm 10 1/2 - 11 wks (its slightly annoying right now that I have two estimates) and I've already had two ultrasounds, but only because the first one was done so early it was "inconclusive" so I had to go back just before Christmas to make sure it wasn't an ectopic pregnancy. Everythign's on track now and I have another appt coming up Feb 11. I'm trying to find out if they're planning to do an ultrascan then, because it's kind of on the far end of the time frame when they like to do them, on the other hand, the results won't change my decision as long as nothing life-threatening is found. I will avoid amnio or other invasive screening if it isn't necessary.
Good luck with your apptmt.
My OB didn't see me until 10 weeks either and I am 46.

My OB doesn't see anyone before 9 or 10 weeks, AMA or not.
