Hello there, I am expecting and this afternoon was told that we tested positive on the quad screen for DS. While that is not the worst news, I would like some guidance/insight on how much more testing to get. I am 25, and we will be scheduling a level II when loyola calls to do so.
If that comes back with no markers, would you suggest an amnio?
What about if it comes back with markers.
We WILL NOT terminate this pregnancy, and I do not know that I am comfortable with the risks of an amnio.
I hope that I am not offending anyone here with these questions. I just know that there can really be a lot of false positives with this screen, and I do not want to take undue risks.
Our number was 1/120 (ish!)
