Blood tests

Postby suzannemorris » Thu May 08, 2003 2:20 pm

I've just had the blood test to check for the risk of Downs and Spina Bifida. It all sounded so dramatic, as she said that if things are fine then to expect a letter in 7-10 days in the post, but if there's a problem then I should expect a knock on the door from the midwife with an appointment for the Hospital. If I am found to be a high risk, then I certainly don't want to risk having the amniocentisis, but I kind of got the impression from her that I shouldn't go ahead with these blood tests if I didn't want to follow the process through. My thinking was that hopefully there will be no problem and therefore no need for the amnio, and I think that I was hoping that even if there was a risk, that detailed scans would be enough to establish whether there was a problem.<br><br>Fingers crossed that everything will be o.k!!<br><br>Hope everyone is o.k.<br><br>Suzanne.x
