  • I done those bloodtests at 15wks...mine tested for spinal bifida and downs and one other thing..they were routine i chose to take them just because the dr said i could not bc i had to...well i took those tests and they said my downs syndrome part came back abnormal...BELIEVE ME IF I COULD DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN I WOULD NOT OF DONE THOSE TESTS!! THEY HAVE CAUSED ME NOTHING BUT WORRYING SINCE I GOT THAT NEWS TWO MONDAYS AGO...Hopefully I will find out on the 16th if anything is really wrong with my baby..I have no risk factors for downs so were hoping its just a wrong testing error...Good luck if you decide to do them...

  • I did with all 3 pregnancies because I was over 30. The results were normal.
