AMA Genetic screening :(

I am scheduled next Monday, but have huge reservations for multiple reasons. Last year I found out I had a missed M/C at my 1st Tri Genetic screening, at 2 days before 12 weeks. I am so nervous something could happen again, however we had a great HB at out Viability US. I will be 2 days before 12 weeks this time too. Wish me Healthy babe please. I am not even sure I even want to do the test, anyone else BTDT? Thanks mamas!

Re: AMA Genetic screening :(

That must have been hard to find out , I'm sorry , I'm sure everything will be ok with this lil one though . I myself am not doing any of those tests , I know that God is giving me the baby we should have and I think they would just be too much stress that I don't need . If you want to do them I say go for it and good luck , if you are not sure you want to then I'm not sure what to tell you , it's really something to just sit and weigh the pro's and con's for you right now with how your feeling .

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.

Re: AMA Genetic screening :(

what does ama stand for? i had a my u/s for this baby with a genetics dr because i wanted to find out ahead of time if my baby will have ds or somethign else going on so i could be prepared, dd has downsyndrome and i didn't know til after she was born and she got poked so much when they were trying to draw blood, and i don't want my future babies going through what she did so i also had the afp done to find out during my pregnancy and prevent my baby from those possible prodding. my afp came back fine and it matched the u/s results that all is fine. i do think it'll be better for you to go and find out all is fine with your baby so you don't need to worry

Thanks for the support The AMA is for advanced maternal age, although I don't feel old I am really only 38, just turned too It is the AFP and U/S like you had I am doing. I guess I am just hoping for the best, and will let you know how it turns out. Thanks!

Re: AMA Genetic screening :(

I hate that term advanced maternal age! They mentioned that to me this time too because I'm going to be 35 at the time of delivery, I'm only 34 now! I wouldn't worry about the other test. I know that everything will be fine!
and let us know how it goes.

Re: AMA Genetic screening :(

after my two losses i was like that too, but one thing i have learned from being pregnant with our 6th child is every pregnancy is different. I'm sure things will be just fine for you , sending you some healthy sticky baby vibes
