Well we are finally pregnant and loving it. So many of people are saying we should test for this and that and others are like don’t get any tests oh but you should test for maybe this one thing. SOme of these tests come with a risk of miscarriage. We definitely want to avoid that. But we were wondering if there are catholic guidelines what is an acceptable test and what’s not for a catholic. Thank you.
Note: A lot of tests I’ve been told give false positives, especially since I am at an advanced maternal age and once you get a positive result (false or true) you’ll receive all kinds of pressure to abort - which we would never do. So in a way its like why bother but anyway we’re only 11 wks along and would like to get some response to this topic. We would only want to know results if and only if the problem is something that can be altered during pregnancy - otherwise we don’t want to know, we don’t want the stress of knowing. Thank you.
