    Big hugs, I'm sorry the news wasn't great When I first found out about being high risk we also were spoken to about being induced should we terminate. Its an extremely difficult conversation to have and so overwhelming. I left the hospital hysterical and cried for days. I could tell you to not stress about being induced just yet and to focus on getting to the amnio. But in all honesty I was a mess and couldn't stop thinking about the decisions we would have to make should the amnio come back with less than desirable results. I'm sorry you are going through this I will keep everything crossed for you in hope that bubba is ok. Here if you need to talk xox

    Can you have a cvs instead? Can be done earlier so you wouldn't have to stress as long.

    Sorry to hear you're having a tough time OP; sounds so very stressful for you.

    Just wanted to let you know that if you wanted to have a chat about Down syndrome either before your amnio, or after, depending in your results, feel free to pm me. I have a 5yo with Down syndrome and have heaps of resources which may be helpful.

    How far along are you? At my hospital they won't do them 14 weeks and over so that might be why. I found out at 14+2 so had to wait the two weeks to have an amnio. It's emotional torture because Its hard not to think of the what ifs. Hopefully the wait goes quickly for you xo

    Could you have the blood test now?

    I have my fingers crossed that you get the outcome you want.

    I spoke about the bt but he said sometimes the bt only shows certain chromisone issues not all, so he recommended amnio, I am 13 weeks but he couldn't get me in in time by the sounds of it

    I've had an amnio, it was fine. I was pretty stressed before hand though! My DD is 3 now. Mine kept getting delayed as I had a lot of bleeding, I had to wait for it to settle down.
