  • Not sure why anyone would want an amnio. The are dangerous and even if the baby had a problem, it not like you would terminate, right? So why endanger your baby for a test that is not 100% accurate and you wouldn't do anything bout?

  • I had an amnio with my second. There were somethings that didn't look right on the 21 wk ultrasound. The amnio came back fine but it turned out being a genetic disorder that my daughter had. Since genetic info doesn't show up the amnio was ok. GL!!!!

  • Great question! I am also curious about the answer since I had an amnio that came back fine. I'm 27 weeks pregnant.

  • Good question!! I had an amnio done today because I am having some complications and we need to deliver, but the first test came back negative for lung maturity, but the other result we wont receive until tomorrow. I want to know how one test can be neg, but the 2nd test comes back with a possibly different answer
