Given that my bloodwork was all normal and NO other soft markers were found on ultrasound, the dr suggested no other testing. The ultrasound took forever but was well worth it. At this point, given the fact that CPCs were detected, my risk of having a baby with a genetic defect is no greater than a women of the same age with no CPCs. (Did that make sense?) Anyway, the dr said that my risk of m/c with amnio is at this point higher than my risk of genetic problems. So, we declined the amnio and will go back to enjoying and not worrying!

oh, btw, I could no longer take the suspense and we decided to find out the sex. Rachel will have a sister and I am so excited for her!
Wonderful news!

Glad to hear from the u/s that the docs are not as worried.

Congrats on your baby girl!

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!
