I don't do anything, aside from their standard blood tests, and the standard ultrasounds. From what I've heard, they just say that they *think* there *might* be a higher chance for certain birth defects/disorders. That would stress me out more than it's worth, so I don't have them done.
Yeah. Honestly, I could care less about the genetic testing, although it would be nice to be able to prepare for a special-needs baby in advance if that happens. I'm really doing it for the ultrasound. Having had two losses (and no successful pregnancy yet), I need all the reassurance I can get!
I thought about doing one, just the blood work and ultrasound, for the same reason. But decided against it. I would not let them do an amino on me if they did get a positive, too risky and too many false positives.
I know lots of people who had them and if they did get a positive they just did more ultrasounds and blood work to figure things out. Most of the time it came back normal and everything worked out great.
I hope yours goes well and that you get to see your healthy baby!!!
