Re: AMA Genetic screening :(

I am not sure what kind of test it is you are having, but I can tell you from personal experience that I would rather know that everything was alright than to worry my whole pregnancy over nothing. I found out at 16 wks that my first daughter had a fatal neural tube defect and I am so glad that I knew before she was born. We were able to make the best of a really difficult situation. Six months after my first daugther was born I became pregnant with my second daughter. I know you can relate to the stress I felt. I was so relieved when all the tests came back normal. I can't imagine carrying any more stress past that point. I still worried after that, but NOTHING like I did those first 16 weeks.

I say do the test (if it in non-invasive) and put your heart and mind at ease.

And hugs to you for your loss. This time will be different.
