Default anyone doing or done

(Im actually due in july, but I dont know how many people are over there)

So is anyone doing the ultra scrren - down syndrome and trisiotomy?
I never did the tripple screen with my others but My OB said this is a different /more reliable test so she really encouraged me to do it, she said the false positives are far less (thats why I didnt do the triple screen before) I still kinda wish I said NO but I did the blood work already and my U/S is in 2 weeks, I dont think the info really matters to me, Im not planning to abort the pregnancy. So just wondering what if anyone has any info or insight to this test. thanks

I chose not to have this test done simply because I wouldn't abort the baby based on the results... nor would I go through with an amnio either to confirm or deny any test results. (it carries a 1/200 risk of miscarriage, most of which turn out to be healthy babies)

We chose not to do any of that testing as well. We feel that God does not give us more than we can handle anyway.
