Because of our age, what extra testing have you, will you or might you get done? Is there anyone who will NOT be getting extra tests?
I have three kids 9, 7, and 5 with a few miscarriages along the way. I never had many tests done in the past, just basic things. Now this time I will be 37 at the time of delivery and I am starting to think I might need to worry a bit.
I have just done the NT scan and the blood screen that goes along with it. If either time they had shown any markers or increased risk I would have opted for the amnio. But both times my risks dramatically decreased after the tests.
I am 37. Our baby is due on my 38th birthday We are not having any testing done. We have discussed it and just don't see any reason for the testing.
We would never terminate and we will have many, many ultrasounds (because of my age) so, we decided against testing.
