I'm not having NT done, when my midwife offered it I ranted at her... If you aren't going to terminate, and you aren't keen to have a test that can cause miscarriage (1 or 2% likelihood of miscarriage over here, though American website say it's a bit lower - depends on the person carrying out the CVS or amnio), then all NT can do is give you a number that may worry you unnecessarily. On a previous thread someone mentioned a friend who had a 1 in 11 chance of baby being Downs, but that still means that the vast majority are healthy, as her baby turned out to be, and all she'd done was worry about it all pregnancy. My SIL has v v bad learning disabilities (can't talk, autism too), but she is happy and I'm glad she wasn't aborted!
