  • i knw how u feel with my first child everything was perfect but now that i'm prego with my second child i was in the beginning that my child had extra fluid behind her neck which could indicate a problem. I was told that i should get an amnio to be sure, well i got the amnio and my test came back negative that was the happiest moment of my life! But i'm 36weeks and i still put my faith in God cause i won't be 100% until i'm holding my healthy normal baby girl in my arms..I hope this helps and good luck to u

  • U can refuse the tests. I did. There are false positives all the time. Does it matter to u either way?
