I'm sorry that you are going through this stressful time. The only way to diagnose IP prenatal is to have a CVS (Chorionic Villus Sampling) or Amniocentesis.
I think a CVS can be performed around 12 weeks & Amnio at 16 weeks. Both tests involve risks, so research as much as you can before making a decision.
I have had a CVS previously & can personally say that the procedure was over very quickly & caused me no discomfort what so ever.
There is definitely a way to test for IP in a fetus. Contact David Nelson, PhD at Baylor College of Medicine Tel: 713 798-4787 Or
