CVS - update and question about results

Hi Ladies,  I'm 36 and 10 weeks pregnant with my second child.  I had a miscarriage in February and the embryo tested positive for a chromosomal abnormality.  I can be anxious and my doctor and I decided that a CVS was right for my first pregnancy.  My experience was great and I loved knowing that everything was healthy so early on.  I have a CVS scheduled for next Wednesday. Being the anxious person I am, I'm over thinking everything!  Should I just be doing the blood screening this go around?  It was not an option for me last time.  Also, there are two options for the CVS.  The FISH panel and the prenatal array.  From what I understand there is a 1% chance that you can get an indeterminate result from the array test.  Would this drive me nuts?  Please note that my doctor suggested the CVS again and the performing doctor is one of the best in Manhattan- his miscarriage rate is less than 1:1000.  What would you do?  Thank you!

UPDATE - So far, so good...  The CVS went well and the preliminary results were ok.  Now just waiting for the confirmation and big report.  The anxiety is driving me nuts!  Are the results I'm waiting for the more rare disorders?  What have been your experience in regards to results matching up with the preliminary?

    Personally, I'd do a blood test like panorama or maternit21 first as they are non-invasive. I had two miscarriages with chromosomal abnormalities and cvs was only recommended after the blood test options.

  • I ended up doing the CVS - went smoothly.  The preliminary results were good.  How accurate are these?  When can I start enjoying my pregnancy?
