    anyone miscarry from getting amnio?

    Being of "advanced maternal age" I am considering doing the amnio test. When I told my midwife about the risks of a miscarriage she said that they are much lower than reported (1 in 500-1000). It all has to do with how much experience a hospital has at performing them. Yet when I went to the hospital for my nuchal translucency test, a nurse gave the statistics of 1 in 200, far worse odds.
    I know plenty of women who had it done and none to have problems. I was wondering if anyone knew any mother to miscarry from getting the amnio?

    I wish that the good results I got today from my Nuchal Translucency test were enough.
    NT is about 80% accurate. I am afraid I would spend the rest of my pregnancy thinking about the other 20%. Even though everything worked out great, I remember being mad at myself during my last pregnancy because I didn't do as many tests.
