Quad Screens

Hi I'm new to the whole message board thing & seriously technolgicall challenged. I am in my 2nd trimester & had my quad screen.  I am preg w r 1st & I am 37.  Due to age alone my risk of things is greater than normal although so far my pregnancy is going great.  Something did show up & I am having a detailed sonogram on Monday to find out if everything is ok. I am very scared. Anyone else going through this?

Re: Quad Screens

  • I had mine months ago. Im sorry that they found something.... but I will tell you I have had several friends have their chances come back high for downs or CF and they had perfectly healthy normal babies.Quad screens have alot of false positives.

    Did they give you an amnio or any other test? Your 20 week anatomy scan will also pick up on any irregularities. I'll be praying for you

Imgoing monday for an in depth sonogram. im trying not to worry too much & looking forward to them telling me she's a girlBig Smile I'll update  soon as I can.  We decided not to tell anyone until we know for sure so your support is soo overwhelming.  Thank you thank you thank you!

  • I didnt do any of the screenings, just ultrasounds so I cant help with that but I have several friends who had abnormalities show up on NT and Quad Screens and after further testing (u/s, CVS, amnio) they found out everything is ok. I hope this happens with you, too! Good luck and hang in there.
