10 days spot on for mine to come back. In the UK they contact you by post if the results are low risk. If they are high risk and you need further tests carried out then they contact us by telephone, so am guessing that would be a quicker response than the 10 day wait for the postman!!

The AFP is a routine blood test that's done on women who are 16-20 weeks preg to check for certain defects & for Down's Syndrome. Sometimes it's called a "triple screen" test. I'm going for mine in two days. (Week 17 today.) Sometimes they come back with false positives, just to let y'all know. But if defects and DS don't run in your family & you're pretty healthy overall & not way over 35, your baby's probably just fine.
