Our next doctor visit brings with it a big question: "do we want to test for diseases like Down's Syndrome or Spina Bifida?" I know I joked in a couple earlier posts about having a one-armed mongoloid. Do you think that will bring us some bad juju?
Anyway, it's a tough decision. On one hand it'd be good to know to prepare for whatever problems arise. On the other hand is knowing really that great, would the amazement of having a baby distract us from the baby having a problem? And from what I understand the test isn't 100% accurate unless is a negative. So if it's a positive then it's only a chance that there's a problem. What kind of test is that? It'd be the twin thing all over again.
If anyone reading this had or didn't have the test done, please let me know what you decided and why.
