I had gotten these results two days ago and am so freaked out for this is my first pregnancy. I go for an ultrasound tomorrow. Has anyone been in my shoes? I know those AFP test can be false-positive.

I am in your shoes exactly. I got my news today 1:202 chance for Downs. The nurse told me not to worry (yeah,right)because it could be a miscalculation of my due date. I will tell you what I have been telling myself since I got the news: try and remain calm until the ultrasound; chances are everything's ok since 90% of the false positive results produces a healthy baby. Good luck!!!!

I am 30 years old expecting 4th child. Three weeks ago at 17 weeks, I was told my chances were 1:120 Level II ultrasound looked good, I was too scarred to do an amnio. Seeing the ultrasound helped me to bond to my baby, regardless of the outcome, however it is on my mind continually and I find myself wanting more ultra sounds to re a__ssure me.

I got my AFP results and they were 1: 147 for a 31 year old. The doctor said there was nothing toworry about. I will do another ultrasound next week. What do you think? Good luck to all!

I go for my amnio tommarow and very scared not really the test itself but what the result could be. Does anyone have a risk close to mine that turned out ok 1 in 59 for down syndrome. I have a healthy 6 year old son and only 28 years old with no family history on my husband side or mine. I just don't understand.Good luck to everyone.

You guys have great odds of having a healthy child. My odds came back 1/10 for DS. I' 43 and my usual odds wouls be 1/38. I have to wait 9 days for my U/S. I've been freaking out!!
