    Also consider the risk of having the amnio, there is a risk of miscarriage.

    This website says the odds of having a miscarriage from an amnio are 1 in 200 to 1 in 400 depending on the experience of the dr. Since your odds are 1 in 5212, I don't think it makes sense to have an amnio.

    Hi Jojo,
    Another positive story for you.
    I am 36, and like you had a previous miscarriage and took a long time to conceive.
    My results were around 1:2500 and we opted not to do the amnio / CVS. Our son is just fine.

    I can well remember the angst of whether to have the CVS for more certainty or not. For me once the decision was made, I stopped worrying though, so hope that it is the same for you, and you can now go on to enjoy the rest of the pregnancy.
