My Quad Screening Results...
My last post today, I promise!! I have been away a lot lately:wub:.
So, my results came back from last weeks tests and I had a message on Monday from the OB nurse. I was told the week prior that I would ONLY GET A CALL IF IT WAS NOT NORMAL. Not sure why she would call my home number with this type of call knowing I'm at work during the day, so I had to wait until Tuesday to call back and get the news, and it was not good news. I wasn't given any details, but of course I hadn't prepared myself for abnormal results and what to ask about. The OB nurse simply said that my test results were abnormal with my demographics and when rerun with the donors demographics (her age) it was still abnormal. So she said OB said to refer me to genetics specialist for genetics counseling. Then she asked if we would consider an amnio. I told her just to schedule the genetics counseling and we would figure out from there where to go.
I researched the Quad Screening in detail on line and found there is a 5-8% false positive on this test and so I contacted my RE who confirmed my donor was screened for genetics and confirmed that she has two young healthy children and those were normal pregnancies and I should wait until my anatomy scan before worrying about further testing or genetic counseling. So, that is what we will do. We will just see how the scan goes and if no concerns about the LO from that detailed scan we will not do any further diagnostic testing.
