We are trying to decide whether to do the early risk assessment ultrasound which screens for Downs as I understand it. I think we did it with #1 and didn't with #2. But then, I'm now over the magic maternal age of 35.
The main thing I'm thinking is that I wonder if a kid with Downs would affect where we give birth. We are currently planning a homebirth.
But then again I totally hate tests because they make me so anxious. My SIL had a bad experience with this test where they said her baby had a high likelihood of Downs but ended up being 100% normal.
What are you mamas thinking?
