I was preg. with our 3rd baby when I was 41. I had some tests and they came back pos for a high probability of a defect with chromosome 18 or 19 (can't remember) We were referred to a high risk specialist who said this defect is not compatible with survival, meaning, if this defect was present, our son would die in utero or shortly after birth. He wanted to do an amnio right then. We opted to wait, because we knew there is a small risk of miscarriage following an amnio, and if they were wrong and he was gonna be fine we didn't think it was worth the risk. The results were wrong and Micah was perfect. You do not have to have ANY of the tests they offer to you! They are wrong more than right and only cause a lot of stress and unnecessary worry. What's gonna be will be. We opted out of having any further testing with that pregnancy as well as my 4th pregnancy which followed shortly after the 3rd. Best Wishes to you!!
