Has any of you been screened for the quad screen test that tests for Downs? I did and I would love to know if any of you have gone through this unecessary scare?

I have taken it and my test turned out fine; I did not have to go for any further testing.

i tested pos with my third for downs and she is fine...we did the level II ultrasound after we got the test back (which I would recommend) and it showed no signs of downs

Colleen why did you post 3 different times on the general pregnancy board with the same question????

??? maybe she didn't like the way her question was worded. maybe she doesn't know about the "bump." just maybe she doesn't have enough responses. Colleen, a cousin of mine did go through the test and she did have an unnecessary scare with downs, they also told her with the ultrasound that her child had club feet...none of it was true. false positives are pretty common with those tests.

My doctor said she wouldn't recommend it- that it wouldn't come back normal because of my age (38) -and that all it would do would be to stress me out probably uneccessarily as most of the patients she has my age have perfectly normal healthy babies. We stuck to just the Level II Ultrasound. Everything looked completely normal on the Level II.
