Pregnant after 35

First time Mom at 35

Hello Community!

My husband and I are expecting our first child on April 30, 2011, and we're curious about genetic testing: do's don'ts, heartbreaks because of and success stories. I think I'm leaning towards no testing, but I'd like to get some opinins.

Re: First time Mom at 35

  • I am 41 and I refused all invasive testing.  I am only having the u/s, GD and a level II ultrasound.  If you read some of the month boards, you will see massive amounts of women with false positives.  This is hard to believe, but I go to a teaching hospital and there is a study concerning the quad on the wall that says that they found no benefit for this test in there clinical study!! Yet they keep asking me to get it!  Insurance $$$ I guess.

     Oh, and I am from WV too!  The study is posted on the wall at CAMC in the ultrasound room in Charleston!
