I'm 26 and 17 weeks pregnant. I just recieved a call from my doctor's office yesterday informing me that my quad screening returned positive for down syndrome. The nurse told me that the blood test is not conclusive, so my husband and I are going to a specialist who will perform a level II ultrasound and we will also have genetic counseling. There are no relatives on either side of our families that have down syndrome. This news has been quite a shock and is causing us to worry and stress. I am looking all over the internet for information on the testing and steps that will follow. Has anyone been through this situation? I would appreciate any advice. We cannot go for the ultrasound until the week of the 12th. It is going to be a long two weeks until we get there. I need to be 20 weeks for the ultrasound to take place. Thanks for any information that you can share with me.
