In brief: Discuss with doctor

Depends on your family history and the necessity for you to be tested so discuss with your doctor that knows your history.

In brief: No

Testing is a personal decision.
Some women would terminate an abnormal pregnancy. Others feel that they would be able to plan better or would make different decisions during their pregnancy. These women often get testing. Other women feel that it will just make them worry and they won't enjoy their pregnancy like they would otherwise. In the end, only you can make the best decision for you.
