  • I would never get an amnio, no matter what the reason and what week. It can cause miscarriage..... For me, if something was wrong, I would continue to carry so an amnio will not help at all and actually I have been there, I carried and lost the baby at 29 1/2 weeks but I would never risk it. Doctors have been wrong.

  • Well I had to get a CVS and I was scared to death...but everything turned out fine. Don't let people judge you. As long as your doctor thinks he/she has a valid reason then take that into consideration and then decide what is best for you...good luck.
