QotD 6.6

What prenatal testing do you plan on doing?

I am only doing the standard testing to make sure I have no diseases, the NT scan and the 20 week scan. Unless
Something arises during those I get too panicked about false
Positives.

normal pap/std testing at the beginning, 20ish week ultrsound, glucose test and group b strep. Just the normal. Havent ever done the other testing with my other pregnancies so wont start with this one. I did have a ultrasound already but that was because he couldnt find the heartbeat at 10 weeks.

NT scan, obviously, plus the quad screening. I'm most anxious to get a result regarding neural tube defects because of my medication. If those give an abnormal result then we'll probably do an amnio.

Glucose, NT scan, Quad scan, 20 Wk Ultrasound, then eventually I have to have 2 non-stress and ultrasounds a week after 28 weeks (I think that's when it starts) until my due date.

I am getting the regulars done (20 wk scan, GSB, Glucose), I am not getting pap and std (i trust my hubby and I didn't do anything since my last testing 9 months ago). I declined the Quad but am rethinking it... :/ I won't do the amnio or cordo again. I will have extra ultrasounds but I don't know how frequently anymore.

You bring up a good point about the medication Roxi... I am not on mine anymore though and haven't been since wk 4.

I'll be getting the NT scan most likely, but that's it for tests that aren't routine.

The 20 wk scan, I might not have to do the gd test, since I'm already monitoring sugars now and will have an apt with my endocrinologist, and the gbs test- since I just recently tested positive and had to go on antibiotics for it and I might do a echocardiogram at 22wks, as a new study came out with fertility patients having a 6%higher chance of having a baby with a heart defect....since this just recently came out in the last 2 yrs, I think I might do that,

heart defects are awful.
