So we found out that our baby boy has AVSD and that this significantly increases his risk of down syndrome from 1:10,000 to 1:2. They have scheduled an amnio for me for tomorrow. I am a nervous wreck, not because of the procedure itself, but because of the risk of miscarriage. Has anyone had experiences with the procedure? How was your recovery? I had a miscarriage earlier this year, so Im scared of feeling cramps, like such websites have suggested you feel after it.
