Nope. We don't do any other tests so we wouldn't test for that.
It wouldn't make a difference to is.

Same for us.

Nope-I already have 1 DD with autism-it wouldn't change my mind about anything. I didn't do half the tests during my pregnancy

Considering we never do any of the genetic testing, I'd say no to that one as well.

I would never do a test that Carries a risk of miscarriage.
So no.
For me it's just easier to not have more kids. Since we're already all on the spectrum (myself included) and I don't want another severely autistic child. Not for several more years anyway. And then I may decide im too old.
