fear and trepidation

today, i go in for a CVS test. the link will explain all, but essentially, it is a genetic test since i am a mom-to-be that is over 35. the test has some risks to the baby, including a risk of miscarriage. i am concerned, to say the least. i do not have any family history of any genetic issues. merely by my age, i qualify for this. (to be blunt, eggs get old 😉 i am not certain whether i am selfish to be putting my baby at risk to know that he or she is okay. i may still change my mind after they talk to me at the center.

i just don't know what to do.
