Re: First Trimester Screen/ Ultrascreen

I hope that this doesn't come off the wrong way, because this is a genuine question.  This is my first pregnancy and we've decided to not take any of these screening tests.  From my understanding, unless you are going to terminate the pregnancy, there really isn't anything you can do to change the state of the baby, so why even go through the worry of taking these tests?  It just seems like it would cause a lot of extra stress about something you can't change.  I've read that a lot of people take these tests so I feel like I must be missing something.  Why have you guys chosen to take them?
