posiive blood test.

HI Ladies,
I found out i was Pg but i wasn't sure on the dates as i was having irregular periods, my doctor done a scan and told me that i was 12 weeks. At 16 weeks i went for my triple blood test as i'm a high risk pg due to the fact that my first son was born at 28 weeks.
Anyway i have been told that i have a 1 in 80 chance of having a child born with downs and that i will need further tests. I'm very worried has anyone else have this happen to them, i was just wondering if the doctors could be wrong as i'm only 28 years old so that should put me at very low risk.

Re: posiive blood test.

Lots of false "positives" on the downs test. Time will tell but try not to get yourself too worked up.(Easier said then done) Your chances of having a downs is actually very slim. My sister tested positive for the downs when she was pregnant (that was done with the amino fluid). Her baby was perfectly healthy and is now a cheerleading 9 yr old!
