I am so pissed right now. I had my blood testing on 11/26/12 (9 viles). I asked the lab what they were all for. I thought she told me all but apparently left one out. When I first met with the Dr. on 11/06 we did not mark the box stating we wanted to test for Down Syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities. My thinking (which may be different then others) is I am keeping the baby either way. I work in the field of Developmental Disabilites and have for 10 years. Yeah it scares me but what are you going to do? So... yesterday I get the first trimester screening back for Down Syndrome and Trisomy 18/13. They gave the 1 in number for both and considered my results negative but have ordered the MSAFP4 to test further for chromosomal abnormalities and neural tube defects. Why? The screenings are no way 100% anyway which is why we didn't want them so we didn't have to worry.
I am livid right now. I have called the people who did the test to talk to them and I emailed the doctor stating I didn't want it done and asked them why they did anyway.
Sorry had to get it off my chest. Thank you for letting me rant
