Did you?

Did you test for downs syndrome? I'm not sure how I feel about testing for it or not. 


Edit: We're not really at risk either, no one on my side of the family has it and no one on his side of the family has it either. Idk why I can't seem to stop thinking about it.

Nope. I actually have not done any genetic testing other than my 19 week ultrasound

 No, I haven't with any of my pgs.  My family history is clear and I wouldn't do anything differently depending on outcome so I choose to enjoy my pg and deal with anything else as it comes.

Nope I didn't. We aren't really at risk, but even so, what's the point in checking... I will love and raise my baby regardless

I did, it's just a blood test so I figured what harm can it do.

Quoting LoveMiLyfe:

I'm more concerned with getting a positive or false positive and having to do more testing. Did yours come back as a positive or false positive?
