So...I am accidentally pregnant at 44 (beach vacation with my husband). We were REALLY surprised, since we had tried some years back, couldn't get pregnant, and adopted our amazing son, who is now 2 and a half. I'm 10 weeks in and two ultrasounds look good. But I am a bit scared about the genetic risks. Does anyone else have (or know) moms who have had healthy babies at 44? If you do, please share the good stories.
P.S. I wouldn't change a thing about our previous infertility issues. If we had gotten pregnant years ago, we would never have adopted our amazing son, and I can't imagine our lives without him. But it is quite weird to suddenly be fertile NOW. The universe has a sense of humor.
