MW asked me about this last night....i guess she's figured out i'm LIKELY to refuse "routine" things at this point. LOL. I briefly researched it last night, it's scary being that what it tests for is symptomless, and the test IS just a heel stick, but it's pretty much too late by the time they test anyway...so it seems a little pointless, also the liklihood that baby has it is 1 in 20,000....i'm refusing tests for things A LOT more common than that But i have read it is more common in Native Americans, and DH and i BOTH have a bit...so i guess I'll do it anyway, and better safe than sorry....just wanted to know what you guys thought.
