spinabifida testing positive. but scans so far so good?

Postby corty12 » Thu Dec 19, 2013 11:44 am

I am currently 20 weeks as of today. I have had two appointments in the last two weeks for ultrasounds because I have an elevated avp I believe it's called from the blood test saying there is probably something wrong with my sons spine leaking somewhere. However from what they have seen it all looks good. My son however is a pain sometimes lol he doesn't care much for being bothered. But yesterday's scan looked really well. They are still having me see a specialist when I get back from vacation. So I'm going nuts has anyone ever had this and their dates matched up and everything turn out okay? Dr said the test is accurate as far as dates go so I'm really concerned. And I don't leave for vacation till Sunday so I have all this time plus the vacation time to worry. :/ either way we are keeping him I just wish I had some reassurance. Yes I know these test can be wrong however that's due to dates my dates are correct they made sure to go back ans look at that. Also my moms amniocentisis was very wrong about me. Thanks everyone.

I'm sorry I don't know much about this but just wanted to say I hope everything turns out ok with your little guy! It is so stressful to hear things like that. I am considered high risk due to my age so they have been doing all sorts of tests. I understand the stress and anxiousness that comes along with waiting for those results. I hope you get the answers and reassurance that you need!
