Re: Anyone test for Down's yet?

I know that the number sounds scary, but a 1:17 chance is only a little over a 5% chance. Which means that there is a 95% chance that your baby does NOT have DS. As my grandfather would say, I'd play those odds at the racetrack any day! With that said if you do want to do amnio, I've read a study that shows that the risk decreases significantly as the pregnancy progresses. So if you felt like you really needed that peace of mind, I might try to wait a bit longer. Keep us updated on how everything goes!
