Oh, and I am scared to get too attached yet. My next Drs Apt is the week before my CVS. I know they will want to do an ultrasound and I am afaird to see the baby. I want to be sure all is good before I do that. Man, I never thought I would be in this position. Crazy how one's life changes!

I know how you feel :)

I had the CVS done just over a week ago - I was terrified and it was really a breeze for me! The dr had done so many of them before - she really knew what she was doing. I barely felt a tihng and absolutely no side effects afterwards. A week later (yesterday!) we got the news that all is chromosomally normal and we have a baby boy coming! Only now will I tell people and start to really have it sink in for me that he is coming. I am 42.
