Re: Anyone test for Down's yet?

My doctor did make me schedule a detailed 18 week sonogram with a specialist though. Which is fine with us. I'm going to enjoy my pregnancy (as soon as the morning sickness subsides) and not worry myself to death. Thanks everyone for the advice and encouragement
Glad you were able to make a decision you are all comfortable with!
Is the 18 wk u/s different than the normal 18-20 wk u/s? I do think they can tell so much now with u/s and I totally agree with your reasoning on why no more testing
