16 week blood test and no answers yet... Is that a sign?

So this is my 2nd baby and with my son I remember when I had my 16 week testing done we had the results bake pretty fast. Well I had this testing done on the 13th of this month... Its been almost 2 weeks... Icalled the OB office and they said they dont have them yet... I am worried because my family has alot of MR. Both Aunts and 3 cousins, that I know of. My brother also... Our son is perfect and we couldnt be happier... No matter what the tests says we are keeping this baby and dont care... But I was wondering, shouldnt they have the results back??

  • you don't really say what test, do you mean an amniocentesis?

    i think the lab is probably just being slow getting the results back. i agree w/ anon 10:23. :)

  • The holiday season led to a lot of closings and backed up lab work. The lab is probably still writing up reports from December. Don't worry.
