Re: first trimester genetic screening---so confused!!!!
As you know, this test is optional and is not necessary. I guess what makes it important is what you would do with the results. (Would it make a difference for you to keep the baby if the results came out unfavorable, etc?) It has a high level of false positives, so it's up to you and what you want. I do know that most insurances are more willing to pay for the second trimester screening than the first, but there are ways around it to make it work. We had this test with our first two, didn't do it for my third, or my current pregnancy. Good luck with your decision making.
