Jennifer would be taking a big risk getting pregnant naturally at her age. I got pregnant at 43 1/2 years old. The baby’s heartrate was only in the 50′s so I was told to expect a miscarriage. When I miscarried, I asked that the “products of conception” be tested. I then found out that the baby had not only one but two genetic problems–Trisomy 18 and Trisomy 21.
