My previous pregnancies we just did the usual early screen (nt + bloods). I had very low risk so we didn't go further. This time it's unplanned and I'm 40 so had consult for cvs only to hear about the harmony test. It doesn't cover all the chromosomes like cvs but gets 99% of downs and I'd have result at 12 weeks which is big plus to me. I think it's worth that small risk to avoid invasive testing. But when I talked to dp he just focused on the small risk they wouldn't pick up abnormality. But I think nothing is 100%. He doesn't have to have the needle in his tummy. I had cancer 2 years ago. I've had so much poking and prodding I favour blood tests and ultrasound. I'm digressing but also kind of feel that he hopes cvs would cause miscarriage as he has not come to terms with this pregnancy. I haven't either but I'm still protective. I'm not sure I would bring a downs baby into the world for its sake and my other children but this embryo is 9 weeks, as hard as it will be to have another child now it's there, it's my child and I want the best for it. Think it's time for another heart to heart with dp. Normally I'm so tired by the time kids are asleep I have no interest in talking - especially when he is still so negative about this. It's harder when it's not growing inside you.
