Nine years ago at 10:09 a.m., our second bundle of joy have arrived. It was a joyous moment for us. Despite what the specialist have told us during my pregnancy, he was born healthy! Hubby and I made the right decision for saying NO to the amniocentesis that they suggested for me to have. There's no way I would risk to have a miscarriage just so they can poke me with a giant needle and study my baby, NO WAY!)
( Amniocentesis (also referred to as amniotic fluid test or AFT) is a medical procedure used in prenatal diagnosis of chromosomal abnormalities and fetal infections, and also used for sex determination in which a small amount of amniotic fluid, which contains fetal tissues, is sampled from the amniotic sac surrounding a developing fetus, and the fetal DNA is examined for genetic abnormalities. The most common reason to have an "amnio" is to determine whether a baby has certain genetic disorders or a chromosomal abnormality, such as Down syndrome. Amniocentesis (or another procedure, called chorionic villus sampling (CVS)) can diagnose these problems in the womb. Amniocentesis is usually done when a woman is between 14 and 16 weeks pregnant. Women who choose to have this test are primarily those at increased risk for genetic and chromosomal problems, in part because the test is invasive and carries a small risk of miscarriage.) source
