I had blood drawn for the quad screen last Friday. This test looks at the levels of four hormones in the blood and can determine if you are at a higher risk for carrying a baby with a neural tube defect, Downs syndrome, or Edwards syndrome. I have been so nervous about getting the results from this test back. The results were supposed to be available yesterday, but weren't so I worried about it all last night. This morning, when I called they told me that the tests came back negative! I was so excited! I was Never this worried when I was pregnant with Aiden. I've been reading too much on BBC this time. There have been multiple women who have gotten false positive results. I knew that I had been stressing about this test, but I had no idea how much. I just felt this enormous sense of relief when I heard the results.
