I am not overly concerned about DS but would like another u/s just to see the baby But I am also 35 and I know risk increases with age. My dh thinks I am being silly about asking to get the tests because its too late anyway if something were there and that's true but if I had a baby with something like DS I would be able to learn about it before birth instead of being shocked by a baby at birth having a problem.
What do you all think?
The last day it can be done is 13 weeks and 6 days. I'm getting it done for a couple reasons. 1) we have a family history of DS and CF, 2) I wanna see the baby!
