However, it also has higher risk as it can harm the pregnancy or in worst cases you can even loose your pregnancy. Amniocentesis has a 1-2% rate of loosing the pregnancy not to mention a 1-2% infection or problem rate such as leaking membrane and pre term labor.

These simple tests may not be as accurate as the medicinal tests there is but it is fun.
