Our expert says:
A screening test can be done at 13 weeks to look at your risk for Down's syndrome. If the risk is high, an amniocentesis would show whether it is Down's or not. Ultrasound at 20 weeks will detect many of the structural abnormalities but there are some that cannot be picked up at all. The sex can be determined on ultrasound depending on the position of the baby. Amniocentesis will also show the sex.
