Ok so I got a phone call from my Dr. yesterday and he told me that I tested positive for down syndrome in my maternal screening. He informed me that I need to go to see a perinatal dr. Of course I am going to go but now it has me all stressed out and worried. I can not go into see the dr until after xmas. My question is has anyone had a positive test result and everything be normal. Now I don't want anyone to get the wrong idea I am going to love this baby as much as any other baby but I want some peace of mind.Answer Question

It was the quad screening. He wants me to go have an amnio done and some other sort of mors specific ultrasound. I am trying my hardest not to stress but its easier said than done.

I hate it when doctors say you tested "positive" for Down Syndrome after a quad screen that is just not accurate. You may have an increased risk for DS but that test can not tell you for sure one way or another only the amnio can tell you for sure. When I got my quad results back on my second child they said I was at an increased risk of having a child with DS 1 in 25. I decided not to do the amnio and did find out after his birth that he did have DS. I loved him dearly but still cried and grieved but today he is 2 and a half and I can't imagine not having him. It is hard to wait it out but hang in there. I'm sorry you can't get into the new doctor sooner.
