I am 38 and this is my 2nd pregnancy. We do not go to our first appt until end of July (will be 9 weeks). I was discussing all of the tests we can have performed with my husband (didn't do any of them with our first-was 34 then). He still doesn't want to have any tests because it will not change anything, only add worry if our risk factors are high. I am on the fence because I want to be prepared.
With our last pregnancy, our OB assured us that they would be able to tell us any defects at the 20 week anatomy u/s. So that is all we had then. I am trying my hardest to NOT let worry and doubt consume me and I am afraid if I have these tests they will only cause me more stress and anxiety.
Have any of you opted out of the tests?
