I dont want the god damn amnio test because of the risks i know its low risks but any risk is too high for me! anyway getting that done wont change it if the baby does have ds At my booking in appointment i told the mw if it came back high risk i dont want the test and she was like yeah but you should cause if it comes back baby does have it you can get a termination WTF?!?!?!?!?!!??! Seriously, its not the babys fault if its a bit diffrent and when i told her this and said i wouldnt get rid and it wouldnt make a difference she was like yeah well.. so i dunno what is gonna happen on tuesday but they better not fucking piss me off or ill be walking out of there no one but noone is gonna sit and tell me it might be best to get a termination or how i wont love my baby as much! Letter from hospital as a few people are asking why it doesnt have the risk number level on it... LETTER FROM HOSPITAL Your blood screening result for AFP/HGC (downs syndrome screening) has come back showing a higher than average risk result. To save you unnecessary worry, we would like to point out that a result in the increased risk group frequently occurs in completely normal pregnancies. We would however like to invite you to discuss your result and options with one of the midwife councellors. An appointment has been made for you to attend the department of obstetric ultrasound on level 7 at ninewells hospital on tuesday 25th august2009 at 10:10am. This appointment will allow time for a discussion with a midwife councellor, a scan of your baby and an amniocentesis if you should request this. If this appointment is not suitable, please contact one of the midwife councellors and a more convenient time will be arranged. Yours sincerely Lesley a mays.
