Re: Anyone test for Down's yet?

My GP is pushing very hard for this Amnio test to be done, as is the high risk pregnancy group I am currently seeing. I have done quite a bit of research on the test, but I find what it boils down to is the reason why you would want the test/results. (Rhetorical Questions...) Will the results ultimately decide whether you will continue with the pregnancy? Will you start doing anything differently if the test comes back one way or another? I found that once I sat down with hubby and walked through those hypothetical's... we concluded that we would proceed with the pregnancy anyway... regardless of the results. I'm blessed to even be carrying a child right now, and as another poster mentioned, if the baby is screaming, I will be happy.

Now... to get my doctor's to accept my decision... LOL
I'm sorry your dr doesn't support you.
I have found my dr is really good about what I decide on things and its nice to not feel pressure there.
