Why Worry

Tomorrow I have a blood test my doctor is really insistent I go to. The problem with Down Syndrome testing at this point in the pregnancy is the test is not reliable enough to really know anything for sure. All it tells you is if the conditions are right for the possibility of the disease, not anything definite. If all I’m getting out of it is worry that might or might not be justified, I see that as completely useless. I don’t believe in worry, I like to take each day as it comes if I can. I don’t know if this is an optimistic viewpoint or not, but although I think it’s important to take action to be prepared for basic things that could go wrong, I also don’t bother to worry about the worst case scenario before it happens. I’m mostly going so my doctor won’t nag at my next appointment.
