In Reply to: False Positives Common??? posted by Becky on October 09, 1999 at 17:11:37:

: 10/9/99
: I will be 27 in Nov. My husband, Nick, and I are having our first child. I am 17 weeks pregnant with our little blessing and am very confused. I had a Triple Screen test done almost 2 weeks ago. Thursday the doctor's office called me at work and said the Downs Syndrome test was positive. After researching I am finding out that this test is not very accurate. Infact, I wish I had not done it at all. I have an amniocytisis scheduled for 10/12 and I am not so sure I will be going through with it. I would like some advise from people who have gone through with this only to find out that they were false positive. Nick & I will have this baby regardless and I don't see reason to add risk to a completely healthy pregnancy. Neither of us has DS in our families. He is 34 but from what I read, he would not be the risk factor until he is much older. God is in control but He also gives us common sense..
: Amnio necessary???

Hi Becky, did you decide what you are going to do? I am 36 and I tested positive also. I am going to the doctors on the 25th. I also have a tumour the size of a baseball in my womb. I am very scared also. I thought it might help to tell you my friend had the test it came out positive and she also had a amnio which came out positive, but her baby was perfectly fine. I hope that helps you. Please keep in touch, love Lucy
