Imagine being able to watch your baby suck her thumb in real time--before she's even been born! That's a 4D Sonogram for you.
Is your baby facing feet first? Is he lying too low? Where's your placenta? You'll be able to all these things out during your final term.
Down syndrome is a birth defect caused by chromosomal abnormalities. You may choose to test for this before your baby is even born, using chorionic villus sampling (CVS), amniocentesis, or a nuchal translucency test (NT).
