I just found this board, on recommendation from someone on the August 2008 expecting club. So cool. I'm 43, this is my first.
I just did my nuchal ultrasound and quadruple screen. I started with a 1/30 chance of Downs strictly because of my age, and the geneticist said that after my testing I ended up with a 1/600 chance. So she called that normal. But I'm still thinking I'll do the amnio.
Still, I find it frustrating that they calculate age into everything. I wonder what my results would have been if they left that out of the equation, after testing?
I need to write a longer intro here somewhere, as I'm also finding that due to the boyfriend's ambivalence about having (another - for him) child, I seem to be a single mom.
Basically, I'm just very glad to find a bunch of women who are also over 40 here!
