We did the first trimester screening (nuchal translucency + bloodwork) and the results came back abysmal. Well, 1/232 for B, 1/17 for A. Their NT measurements were pretty high, so adding the bloodwork values to that really pumped our numbers up. I ended up having a CVS which showed everything was fine, but there was an awful week of tears between those two events.
If I were doing it again, I think I'd either do the CVS/amnio or nothing. The screening tests were too anxiety-provoking for me, given the issues with multiples. But then, if I'd had good results from the screenings, I bet I'd feel differently.
