Anyone have an Amnio or CVS

I am carrying a surrogate pregnancy & the Intended Mother has informed that that I will need to have one or the other- waiting for the doctor to tell us which..

Can you tell me which you had & how the procedure went & if you had any problems afterwards..

  • I had an amnio at 36 weeks. It was creepy, but not painful, and I didn't have any problems afterward.

  • I have had two Amnio's done and going for my 3rd in a few days at 37 weeks. My first was with my 2nd baby at 20 weeks and everything went fine. I listened to the doctors orders as to keeping off my feet for at least 24-48hrs after . My second was with my current 3rd pregnancy at 17 weeks and everything went the same no problems and I also stayed off my feet for the same amount of time. After the procedure my tummy felt sore like I had bumped it and over used my tummy muscles.

  • I had amnio with my 2nd pregnancy at 19 weeks, after fetal indication. My son was stillborn due to numerous genetic defects 2 weeks later.
