Sooo.. has anyone done the testing? Care to share experiences??
I am 11w2d now... so my window is starting to close, day by day. STILL have not decided!
The practice I have started with (they don't do births)- I have seen both mw's thus far - as I've had two appointments so far.
I wish I saw mw #1 for my last appointment. Though the mw I saw was great in all ways - she was not so great as far as this test goes. I wanted to discuss it. Whereas she was obviously not for it. She supported me if *I* wanted it - but she was not so into DISCUSSING it. ::sigh::
But then again - I have researched it... and what is there to talk about anyway? Besides, perhaps, me wanting her to pull out her crystal ball and tell me SPECIFICALLY what I should or shouldn't do. lol
Urgh. Not sure... and with DH away, and not knowing what will happen upon his return in early Nov. And can't really talk to HIM right now about it. Not sure at all. When we started to talk about it weeks ago - we had been leaning toward no. But now that I may be all on my own with this baby... a head's up of any special needs would be a blessing. But then... the test won't tell me anything SPECIFIC. And do I really want to take the risk of amnio (never in my life did I think I would).... ???
The mw just wants me to do all the blood screenings and level II u/s around 18 weeks. If I was in my 20's or early 30's I would not do the nt testing (three healthy kids thus far...). But being 41 and not having treated my body so great for the past few years..... Hmmmm....
And EVEN IF I make promise to myself not to FREAK over some not-so-great results (again - KNOWING my age can throw me right into some funky results....), I am nervous I won't be able to keep that promise and WILL freak out. And that is not normally how I roll through pregnancy. I generally just TRUST.
Anyone have crystal ball??? lol
