I'm a worry wart and planner and trying to decide what tests I should take or not take.
Had an utrasound yesterday and I am 7 weeks and there was a heartbeat!! YAY!!!! When I asked if this lowered the chance of a miscarriage he said he hadn't heard that but had heard that a large yolk sac could indicate a miscarriage but that mine was normal. YAY!!!
Now I want to decide what tests to take or reject. I really don't like the miscarriage risks associated with an amnio. What about the CVS--I see a lot of you have taken it. PP says the risk is very low, but then says its the same as amnio, just can be done earlier. What exactly does it show? PP says you can do it at 10-12 weeks, but my first midwife appt. isn't until 11 weeks.
Also, what about Alpha-Fetoprotein? It's done later and has less risk but doesn't it potentially give false positives?
