I am newly pregnant. This will be baby #3.
With #1 I was 38. After the bloodwork (AFP I think) the risk for Down Syndrom was 1:67. He was fine. With #2 I was 40. After the bloodwork the risk for DS was 1:9. She was fine. MANY USs done in both pg to rule it out & they found no problems. So an amnio wasn't done either time. At the time I remember reading that once you have a false positive you will have false positives with subsequent pg.
Well I will be 43 when I have this one. I am really contemplating a CVS. I live near some really great hospitals that have excellent track records. I do worry though about pg loss. I just hate having to spend the first half of the pg worried constantly. I am thinking of turning down the blood work & just having the NT ultrasound & see what that shows. Anyone else have experience with CVS? Any advice is appreciated!!
