The AFP, aka: the triple screen, & the quad screen tests seems nerve wrecking. I'm 14wks now, and I'm due to go back @ 16wks...but seriously thinking of not having these tests done. I'm 26 yrs old...and I just don't feel comfortable with this screening test.

I did not have any testing done with my first and I will not with this one. My mom went through all the tests the last time she was pregnant and the doctor told her with all certainty that my brother was going to have Down Syndrome. He pushed for abortion, but my mom refused. My brother is now a happy, healthy boy with absolutely NO sign of Down Syndrome or any other issue. I do not trust their results.
