Prenatal Genetic Testing... Thoughts?

Postby ksi0512 » Mon Jan 18, 2016 6:10 pm

Tomorrow is my second prenatal appointment. She wanted us to decide if we wanted any prenatal testing done, including the quad screen for chromosomal abnormalities.
What does everyone plan on doing? Is it common to have the testing done? I'm not currently considered high risk, and this is my first pregnancy. I'm not sure what to do!
Thanks in advance!

Here's a link to a post that was made several weeks ago regarding this topic viewtopic.php?f=13&t=270474

You'll find my detailed answer there. Hopefully reading other people's opinion on the matter will make it easier for you to make a decision.
