I just received a positive alpha feta protein (which test for abnormalities). It came back positive for Down Syndrome. My husband and I have no known history of DS in our family, but to my understanding, it's not always hereditary. Long story short, I am a nervous wreck and have spent pretty much the whole day crying. My doc doesn't seem to be too concerned as the level was extremely low. I meet with a specialist and do the 2D ultrasound next week. In the mean time, any suggestions on how to calm myself down, or any experiences with this test, and having perfectly healthy babies? Depending on what the specialist say's I may opt for amnio, just bc I want to be fully prepared for a special needs child.
