If you only have a risk of a 20 year old for ds, why do you want to test? Amnio and CVS both carry a risk of miscarriage and neither of those tests can find "wierdness".

No need for those tests TRACCY. Do you live in the U.S. or Canada? Here in Canada they would only offer those tests if there was an elevated risk seen via ultrasound or a high NT..CVS and amnio are not elective test to just take plus your doctor would advise you if he thought you needed them. Best of luck to you. I am very happy for you and I know what you mean about having weird inlaws. argh!!! Thankfully your lo will turn out much like you or your dh. Keep your wits about you girl. And again congratulations on reaching the 12 week mark that is just fantastic!!
