Well for all of you that asked I do plan on having the amnio done. The results will not affect our decision to keep the baby. No matter what we find out this is OUR BABY and we will love and care for it just the same. I think I need to have it done for my peace of mind and sanity. lol. This is the same genetic disorder that caused us to lose our first #3 at 17w5d back in 7/06. I feel we need to be prepared for what ever the outcome is and I would rather know now for certain then find myself worrying myself to death for the next 5 months. lol. I'm listening to my gut feelings and they are telling me everything is fine. I just feel I still need that bit of reassurance. Thanks everyone for your prayers and support. I will keep everyone updated as we move forward with this.

I had an amnio back in 1993, when I was a surrogate mother. It was required of us, to ensure the health of the baby and/or to allow the parents to make decisions based on results. In my contract, the parents agreed not to terminate based on birth defects, so it wasn't an issue for me.

I think knowing if there is a possible birth defect/ disease/ health issue before your baby's birth is VERY important. It's not just an issue of termination or not. You and family could learn about the condition and prepare.
The stress you will feel NOT knowing will be far worse physically for both you and the baby, as well as emotionally for rest of your family, than having an amnio. The fear of the long needle is FAR worse than the procedure itself!
You don't have to find out the sex of the baby - we didn't. The parents specifically asked the information not be recorded, so they could be surprised too. If you feel the same way, I'm sure they'd do the same for you.
Best wishes! My prayers are with you all, Elizabeth emoticon

I will be praying for you and that God will guide you in this time of uncertainty.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

I also HATE needles and based on that factor alone could never get an amnio done! emoticon It all comes down to one simple question...will a negative outcome cause you to love the baby any less or terminate the pregnancy (which is why they do the test in the first place)? If so, then get the test, if not then pass. Either way, I will keep you, hubby, and the baby, in my prayers and ask God to grant you a healthy pregnancy & delivery. If you decide to get the test let us know so we can pray for a painless test! emoticon I've been told that they aren't really painful, more an uncomfortable feeling like pressure. Keep us updated. emoticon

Went to see Dr. Foulk yesterday for our 4th month appt. and everything is good for the most part. Baby was moving around alot while I was in the waiting room. Think maybe it was trying to reassure me, lol. Heartbeat was 143bpm and my weight is almost back to pre pregnancy one pound to go, I weighed in at 136. I also got the results of the AFP test. 2 of the 3 test came back with normal results. ( spina-bifida and tryisome 21) The 3rd screening for tryisome 18 came back as a 1 in 87 pregnant woman. Which means with this baby I have a 1 in 87% chance of it having tryisome 18. So Dr. suggested an amnio on the 27th of February, I'll have to go to Columbus to have it done. I'm kinda scared and nervous at the same time. I've never had an amnio done. I'm not very fond of needles either. lol. Has anyone else had this done before? Is it as bad as it seems? I guess the only good part is we'll be able to find out the sex sooner than we expected. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mary
