  • Just about everyone who has had an abnormal AFP result ends up with a normal healthy baby.

  • Oh sure, false positives run rampant on those tests, since they base it on things like age of the mother and stuff too. Really, it's just a guess. If you want to be 100% sure, have a CVS or an amnio. The APF test does nothing but make people worry, in my opinon...

  • That's the same as a triple screen test right? (Screens for Down's, etc?) I opted not to take that test at all BECAUSE it has such a high false positive rate. Don't stress.

  • I refused that test because of all of the scary results I heard people got with it.
