The sequential screening test which shows if you are at a increased risk of having a baby with Down syndrome, trisomy 18, or an open neural tube defect. They get a blood sample and US in the first trimester, and a second blood test in the second trimester.
I am young, 23, so my doctor says I have a LOW chance of a child with any of the above. We didn't do it with my daughter or my son. And are being a little more pushed since I'm older now. I don't want to in case I "jinx" it. But if it is a case I want to be ready for it. and the ness art steps. My fiancé and I are leaning more towards no. Since here isn't anything that can be done if there is defect. And no matter what he/she birth defects or none, we love them with all our hearts.
What are you doing? Or your thoughts?
