  • false downs testing is common. you can get secondary testing.

  • With my 7th baby everything came back wrong, I had a 50% chance he was downs...he wasn't. I failed the Glucose test....but I never got gestasional diabetes. I failed the Strep B test and didn't get enough antibiotics in so the hospital was freaked...he was fine.

    I have a prefectly happy healthy 3 year old.

  • False positives are very common. You can have a recheck, amnio, or one of the diagnostic ultrasounds. Try not to worry!
