Triple Screen Testing

Has anyone here had a triple screen test and had it come back that your percentage of having a downs syndrome child was higher than it should be?

I did. Actually, I never did get told what the actual numbers were, but just that "your baby has Down's Syndrome". Pretty upsetting, but after some additional testing... we found out that we weren't a high risk after all.

I have also just rec'v the new that my baby may have Downs. I have a visit with the specialist Mon. I hope my test also turn out good. I have heard that this test is wrong about 95% of the time.

I am experiencing this right now. I then had a level 2 ultrasound, which detected a small white spot above the heart. I finally opted for the dreaded amnio. It was yesterday, and I so far am doing ok. I cant believe we have to wait 2 weeks to hear if our lives are going to be turned upside down. I already have a 3 year old...this is one of the hardest things I've ever done. I don't know what to do with myself, so I'm so glad I stumbled upon this website!
