10 Wks. 6 Days. Headed For The CVS Test!! *Scared*
CVS Test Today & So Scared!
10 wks. 6 days
I’m headed to the city in only a couple hours for a CVS test. It’s like an amniocentesis, where they insert a needle into the abdomen, to get a sample from the baby (in my case, babies’..for genetic testing). Where they draw the sample is different, but the procedure is the same, it just can be done weeks earlier, for sooner results. I’m not 35 yet, or have had a bad ultrasound, warranting this, but after losing a child before and after birth, I want absolutely every single bit of info on these babies, that I can possibly get, for peace of mind, and for knowledge, plus I feel like with two the risks are of course increased, so that is another fear I have, I’d like it all just laid to rest, if you know what I mean.
God forbid something was horribly wrong, I could make an appropriate decision IF need be (knock on wood, I’d never have to go there). I just could never, ever, ever deal with seeing another child leave this world on me, to suffer and pass on, my heart just couldn’t bare it, so I feel really confident, that despite the really slight risk to the procedure, it’s the thing to do. I’m going to one of the best there is, to make sure the risks are at their lowest. Of course I’m fearing their slightly under 1% risk of miscarriage the Dr. had quoted me, for the procedure, at their facility. That is low though, compared to the national average, which I believe is like 2%, still low, but someone has to fall in there, and I’m not the best with odds.
I also fear the pain, as I stupidly typed it into google and found many experiences, and most say how horribly ‘ouchie’, it is, and I’m having it x’s two, but hopefully it won’t be too too bad. My husband says, people enjoy telling their war stories online, but very few will post their positive stories, so I’m hoping he’s right:) The waiting will be utter torture though, that is for sure!
Anyhow, I gotto hit the shower, I’ll update shortly.
