Okay ladies, with my first dd (now 4.5) I was never offered the option of a 1st trimester screening.

I did all the testing when I was pregnant w/ my son. My insurance covered everything. I never even considered not doing it. If there's something, I want to know. The tests aren't harmful in any way, so I say why not. Though I can understand and respect why other women feel differently.
