We just discovered that our daughters's firstmom was recommended by her doc for an amnio while she was pregnant with her. This is strange for two reasons: (1) she was a teenager and (2) the amnio was scheduled for very late in the pregnancy (mere weeks before due date).
The medical records indicate that it is related to pre-natal drug use. But not every drug user has an amnio, do they? Does anyone know why it might have been recommended?
There is no way I can ask her for reasons I cannot disclose. I just want to be on the alert for any medical problem that might reveal itself as my daughter matures.

Talk to your Pedi. to see if they want to do an assessment of your daughter.BTW in my last two pregnancies I had serious pre-term labor and in one needed an amnio at around 35 weeks ,then needed the meds to hasten lung development.He is a healthy bright 14 year old that is on the A team for cross country and basketball. So no long term effects from the meds.Have her accessed but chances are her lungs are great.
