Has anyone done CVS testing or amnio only on the basis of your age? I have no prior history etc with disabilities etc and have to decide this week whether to get CVS done. But, when I had my last bub in my late 30's, CVS and amnio testing were never mentioned. It's such a hard decision, as I've heard that the risk of an abnormality is 1 in 100, but the risk of miscarriage due to the procedure is also 1 in 100. Sounds to me like I've got a 99% chance of everything being fine. I know lots of women who would abort their baby if it had Downs Syndrome, but I think I'd be ok with Downs. However, it's the thought of what I would consider more serious conditions that makes me wonder if I should have the testing. Yet, after seeing the pics of how my bub is growing each week, I wonder if I could abort at all. Gosh, I hope I don't have to face that decision.
