This is a a blood test that test for Down Syndrome, Trisomy 18, and Open Neural Tube Defects. Apparently this is a test that was automatically done and paid for by my insurance with my previous 2 pregnancies. Insurance no longer pays for this which makes it an elective test for $225. My next appointment would be the testing if I decide to do it. I heard there are a lot of false positives but I will be researching this before we make the decision. Did you have the test done??Answer Question

I had the blood test done with my oldest because I didn't really know what they were doing, I just did it because it was "routine". All was fine. With my second I declined all testing and now with my 3rd they scheduled me for it.... but I am calling to cancel, so I will be declining with this one too. I will not terminate so might as well be happy and have faith that God will take care of everything.
