It is quite possible that a pregnancy would fade and the embryo not come out for a while, in my case it took four weeks from fetal demise (which I knew about from ultrasound evidence, no heartbeat). I do not know whether testing can be done at 9 weeks for Downs, but perhaps it is a simple blood or tissue test. It does seem a bit surprising that they would test for Downs but maybe there is simply a panel of tests that is done.
I find it suspicious. I've had 2 m/cs and the hospital does not do testing unless your dr requests it. And almost unheard of if its ur first m/c. If there was testing there should be a pathology report, ask to see it, if she can't produce it then I would say there'd ur answer. Good luck.
Thank you so much for the comments. I just find it hard to believe that a hospital randomly tested for something like that. Or if they did that they would have told her that right then and there. Wouldn't it take time to even get test results like that back? Also, she has no personal health insurance which made it even more suspicious to me.
