I'll be forty years old in May, I just had a still birth that may have been a trisomial issue.
Even with all that going on my doctor recommends not doing the quad screening and I have never had a nt screen even though this is my fifth pregnancy over 35. He agreed to do the MaterniT21 test because it is accurate enough for him.
When I hear things like what you described I cannot help but to think,"would you like fried with that?" I wonder if she gets a good kick back for every screening she sells.
It almost seems like she was selling it. Like it was for her benefit not mine. Gah. Sorry to hear about your stillbirth, can't even begin to imagine...
I feel like I will take what mother nature brings me, I have faith in my body. If something were to happen, how is knowing about it going to make me feel any better at this point? I want to go with the flow, allow things to develop naturally.
And see, SIZE doesn't matter. I don't care what they say. Everyone keeps telling me I'm at risk for diabetes, but I've had bigger friends carry to full term without an issue and tiny friends have so many problems. It doesn't matter.
The good thing about the Mat centre I'm going to is all I have to do is start scheduling on different days to get a different OB. I will also be referred to a high risk centre at 20 weeks, so I doubt any OB I see before then will deliver. Which makes me feel better. Although, I don't quite understand why I am high risk. Just my weight? Ugh. I know I've had miscarriages, but all before the second trimester. And we know why. I just feel like a giant disgusting blob when I walk in there.
Why on earth does pregnancy have to be so frustrating?! I almost want to laugh at all the crazy I've been dealt these past few months.
Thank you ladies for making me feel less like an assh*le for refusing the scan. I'm glad you're all on my side with this. Means a lot.
