Is this just standard now? I know it is a nice time to see my little one, but when I made my appointment yesterday they talked about it like it was just something they always do. I thought it was just an early indicator for down syndrome??
We do NOT have great insurance this go around--we somehow enrolled in the wrong plan when dh changed jobs in march and cannot switch until around march or april next year (which is too late for baby). So I want to avoid extra costs. Especially because we have to pay a 5,000 family deductible (no individual) before they pay a cent (plus the premium we pay--so stupid!).
So do I really need to take this test? I know I wouldn't terminate the pg anyways and wouldn't they find any of that stuff out at the 20 week u/s anyways?
The nurse is going to call me back in the next day or 2 to discuss declining the nuchal screening.
