It's funny, I just had the NT scan Wednesday, and consented to the bloodwork, but I never was worried about chromosomal problems AND we wouldn't terminate anyways. Right when we were beginning treatment for the recurring miscarriage, the same practice did a fairly in-depth query on me and the DH to determine if we had an increased risk-- the family histories and blood work on us both. They decided that we were at a very low risk for any of that stuff, based on the blood work, our histories, my age, et al. Basically whatever is causing my miscarriages is me, not the embryos themselves. (Bad body! BAD!) So it was kind of funny that they still wanted to do all this, but I guess it's just their procedure.
For the ultrasound, wild horses couldn't keep me from it, with my history... this is the first time out of 5 pregnancies that we ever got to 12 weeks. I didn't care about neck fluid, I just wanted to see the heartbeat, and the hands and feet and all that. For the bloodwork, I guess I could have refused but it was no problem to get the needle stick and I'm just not used to refusing stuff yet. (Need to work on that for later!) I mean if they had to do something to the Little Passenger that would be different, but they can take all my blood that they need, I don't care.
