I am 6 weeks pregnant and this will be my first child. I am looking into Chorionic Villi Sampling or Amniocentesis. Has anyone done either of these tests? Is anyone else considering it?

I just had an amniocentesis. I'm 28 years old and had a abnormal triple scan for downs, but everything came back fine. It does give you peace of mind.

Was it very painful?

The needle going in hurt a bit but the main issue I had was just being scared that the needle would touch the baby but the dr. was great and all was ok. Are you considering doing these tests because you are over 35 or high risk? I was 39 so they kinda pushed me into the amnio.
