Re: First Trimester Screen/ Ultrascreen

lilygirl that's pretty much why I decided not to take the extra screenings. But I know lots of moms who have taken them since they would want to be prepared if their baby is higher risk.

 

I don't think you have to feel like you're missing out on anything. The ultra screens they need to use for the diagnostic tests are much more expensive than the regular u/s, which is another reason we won't be doing it. The bill for us through our hospital system would be at least $1800 for the test and since we are on a high deductible plan would have to pay every penny of it.
