Abnormal NTD Results

So I received a call from my doctor with my results for the 2nd part of my screening tests; I'm now 18 wks. He said my trisomy levels were normal, so no down's but the results for neural tube defects was borderline. I am a complete mess, so worried about this baby. Have to repeat test on Monday, but having to wait is agony. Trying to keep it together so our 9yr old doesn't suspect anything but it's so hard. Anyone else have something similar happen to them?

I actually elected not to have these tests done...both of my sisters received false positives in at least one of their pregnancies.  I did not want the stress of worring for nothing.  My sono looked good and that's how I left it.  My son is a very healthy little boy!  Good luck!

I agree.  False positives are common.  I wouldn't worry too much.  Good luck

Thanks so much ladies, after reading some more I realized alot of people have gone thru this and had perfectly healthy babies. I would have opted out of the screening but my husband said he would feel better to have them done, which is fine with me, we're a team :)

I have to say, this is an incredible relief. I just got a call form my fertility clinic as well. No Downs, but an elevated AFP level which could suggest an NTD. I have spent the past 20 minutes trying not to have a complete breakdown at my office:) Thanks for posting. I will just hold tight until my OBGYN calls with an appointment for an anatomy scan. Praying for the best...:)
