2nd Genetic Test Results in Tomorrow

Postby MotoX Mom » Mon Jun 01, 2009 2:59 pm

Hi Ladies, it has been a month since we 'screened positive' for downs syndrome. The screening tests have a very high rate of false positives, and we are praying that our second test results bring good news.

Please pray for Dh and myself and our LO to be healthy.

thank you. :praying:

You are in my prayers. I have been thinking about you and looking for posts from you today. I hope everything goes well. I did my amnio on friday it wasn't too bad. My peri is great and i trust him with everything or he wouldn't be my doctor. Keep me posted.

Thanks Socal...we are headed to the appt soon. I am so anxious about it. We are also doing the FISH results so we can find out on Wed instead of waiting 2 weeks.

My doctor said the amnio is 7 days and that the FISH would be 3 so i figured that regardless i'd need the amnio to confirm so we didn't bother with the FISH i guess i'm just too scared. I hope things work out for us both. Goodluck...btw...my scans have always been completely normal but i still worry because i know it's not 100%

socal - 7 days is not bad (I dont say that non-challantly ;) ), our dr said 2 days for FISH and 2 weeks for the regular results. I could not wait 2 more weeks :? Plus our insurance covered it, and so it would only cost us about $100 for the fish. :) Anyway, here is our update:

Our Anatomy scan was as perfect as it could be! The nasal bone and heart (which are two of the more "weighing" factors) were great. She kept commenting on the how perfect the heart was and how the baby was SO willing to show it. The one thing they were not sure of (being we did the u/s early at 17w) was if they would get a good shot of the heart. There was one questionable spot on the abdomen, but after looking and relooking, she was not worried at all. So our new ratio is 1:60 which is the lowest we can get now.

We went ahead and did the amnio (it really hurt going in by the way). DH and I ran the package to Fedex and should have the definitive results on Wed. Dr was pretty confident it was a GIRL (amnio will tell for sure)! I still think God prepared me with this whole screen procces for it to be a girl, since DH and I both wanted a boy. Now, I am just so happy that the baby seems to be healthy so far, and our ratios keep getting lower.

Well i never thought time would go by so quick , but it sure has. I'm so scared to hear bad news so each day that passes the more sick i feel. I'm glad things are looking better for you! My amnio was not bad at all, i just focused on the screen. It was more uncomfortable than painful. Good luck! Congrats on the little girl!!

No, it's just going by faster than i thought i would. My cell rang today at 5:30pm and my hands just started shaking...my doc always calls at that time. I'm a nervous wreck.

No...it was done in early afternoon last Friday, so i'm thinking by Monday evening the latest. He said 7 days but i'm not sure if because it wasn't done in the morning if that's going to slow it down and the weekend. Oh well...honestly i don't know if i want to know. If i don't know then i can pretend everything is ok a little while longer, but i know that will only last for a short time.
