Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
We did it with our first. It was comforting. I am older so my risk factor was high...but then after the test they said my risk factor was lowered.
We will do it with #2.
We did it the first time and will do it this time. It's nice to see the baby and for us, it was a calming appointment because I'm AMA (even more so now) and our risk was lowered.
We would never terminate, nor do invasive testing, but this is an easy one for us and our insurance covers it.
Nickisiebert:Not doing it. I can't go into labor because of some complications with my previous csec so they going to be doing a lot of growth monitoring at the end and no matter how many times I hear it's totally safe, I can't help feeling like less is probably best. Wow, that was quite the run on sentence! Lol... Just going for the 20 week and then nothing till the end!
I did it last time. On one hand, I liked getting another look at her and was even told with 90% certainty that she was indeed a she. On the other hand, I think it came back with some really small chance that something was wrong and I really didn't like hearing that. It didn't change how I felt or make me want to continue testing. In fact, it did the opposite. I just put it out of my mind and kept thinking healthy thoughts. In the end, I had a beautiful, healthy baby girl.
I haven't decided if I want to do it this time. Part of me says yes (since it's covered my insurance anyway), but part of me thinks I should just skip it since it won't change anything.
MrsWPT:We did it with DD and will be doing it again.
shelley1002:Not doing it. My insurance does not cover it since it is an elective/option test.
This for me too. I would do it otherwise.

Haha! So this one time I'm Half asleep and thought we were talking about ultrasounds. Oh dear...so very very blonde...
The NT involves an u/s. It is used to check for certain genetic markers.We had it done with DS and will for this baby. I know there is a risk for increased worry, but I would rather have more time to be prepared/educated.
