Iím actually struggling with a decision for my next appt about that. I had a NT scan/genetic screen yesterday for downs and other chromosome issues, and the baby did amazing. We were put in a super low risk category.
So they want to do another screen in four week (at 16wks). Itís just a blood test, this time for downs again and spina bifida, but really? We won't abort even in the most dire situation. Doc said he used to think like me but then he said, knowing baby may have a major health issue would be advantageous ó baby might need to be born by c-section or in a level 3 NICU. OK, he had me there. BUT, then he said, thereís also a chance my late term u/s could screen for these issues. I think docs/hospitals go too far sometimes. What do you think?
