The genetic counseling center FINALLY called!

I got a phone call at 8am this morning to tell me that they got my messages and were booked for the week!  I asked the lady about the cvs test and asked at what point they couldn't do it anymore.  She said they like it done by 13 weeks or sometimes by 13.5 weeks.  In my hours of google research this weekend I never once saw a recommendation of doing the test past 13 weeks.  I reminded her that I am 12w2d pg right now.  She said she'd talk with the doctor and call me back.  About an hour later she called and said we have an appointment Wednessday morning with a scheduled cvs after (we can opt out of the cvs test but they schedule the 2 together).

I'm not sure what we'll do regarding the test but I knew there was no way on earth I was going to wait another week to talk to someone about the results.  I find it VERY unprofessional to give someone vague shitty news and then leave them hanging for days without any information or an appointment in site.  Hopefully we have a much better experience in person than we have up to this point.

Dh flew out of town this morning but he's coming back home tomorrow night so we can go to the appointment together. 

Once again thank you for all of your kind words, thoughts and prayers.

    That is just nuts!  I wish you the best of luck.  OH, btw, I was looking up something else on Google, and the one thing that came up a lot was Turner Syndrome. By any chance, do they think its that instead of Down's?  It also has a characteristic neck fold.

    I'm sure Turner Syndrome is a possiblity.  I think that is one of the things they will specify at the appt.  I'm hoping they will give us odds for all possible outcomes so 1:XXX for T18, 1:XX for T13, 1:XXX for T21, and any other issues that it could be.  I know they'll also do a Level II u/s to look for more markers.

    I totally agree about how crappy they have been.  I hope the person you meet with is very helpful and much more competent.  I'm glad Dan is going to be back on Wednesday to go with you.   You've been in my T&P all weekend.

    Sorry they took so long to get back to you, but I'm glad they were able to fit you in sooner rather than later.  Good luck!  I hope the MFM can provide some answers.

    It's good you have something schedule now.  Hope you get some answers soon.  I HATE when they make you wait too.  It's very unprofessional.

    Well, thank goodness they squeezed you in.  I hate the BS that there aren't any openings, there are ALWAYS openings for emergencies.  And yes, you need to have a conversation about what's going on sooner rather than later.

    I hope there is some good news later.  Please keep us updated.

    Just curious, why do you choose CVS over Amnio?  I was told by my Peri to choose Amnio because it is less risky and tests for more things?  Maybe I missed your post?  Either way, best of luck and thoughts and prayers to you.
