We'll be getting the NT scan at 12 weeks, and if that indicates a high chance of an abnormality, then we'll probably go ahead and have the amniocentesis done.

We'll do the blood test as the NT scan (for the extra ultrasound) and if any of the tests come back abnormal, we'll have the amnio done.

I haven't decided on whether to do the nt scan or not, I did with my first, and everything was fine. I know that doesn't mean everything will be ok with this child, but I just don't know if I would want to know if anything were wrong or not. I am going to discuss this with ny hubby soon so we can set up the appointment if we decide to do it.

We will be doing this one at 11 weeks... FAQ: Cell-Free Fetal DNA Testing | Patient Education | UCSF Medical Center

I would never agree to an invasive test again without very very good reason to do it. I had a CVS done in the past and I had nightmares seeing that needle invading my pregnancy on the ultrasound screen.

We will do NT around 10-12w just for the extra ultrasound. That's it.

We won't be doing any of the testing. Unless something appears to be wrong with me or the baby (heartbeat or something like that) we didn't last time either.
I would just rather not
