In brief: Depends

Maternal age over 35, prior child with a disorder, certain family histories, or depending on your ethnic background, you may need or choose testing.
Discussing with your health care provider or a genetic councilor will help you decide.

In brief: Depends

If already pregnant you have 3 choices: no testing, screening to see your risk, or getting a diagnosis by amniocentesis.
It really depends on what you would do with the results. Your obgyn can help you figure out what may make the most sense for you.
