( No genetic problems either - I asked). Thanks
The risk of miscarriage on average is 1 in 250, but each doctor has his own statistics. Who does them can make all the difference in the world. My aunt had hers done by a doctor who had a 1 in 500 miscarriage rate. My aunt was 42 at the time she had hers. She had no complications from hers.

I would think at 35, 3rd pregnancy with no genetic problems and healthy babies that this would not be recommeded.
