I made an appointment to get the test done. But was not able to keep the appointment. This place does not answer phones, you leave a message, they call you back within 48 hrs. I called to re-schedule and they didn’t call me back. Guess because I missed the first appointment. Not sure. So now I’m worried that we didnt get this test done, and now I feel like I don’t have peace of mind. I just want to make sure our baby is healthy.
Did you get it done and what were your results, or did you choose not to?
*I’ll be 13 weeks tomorrow.*

I got it done. It was 100% covered by insurance and it was a chance to see my little one (would have had to wait until 19 weeks if I didn’t do it then). My results were good. At my 16 week blood test I did test high for AFP values (possible sign of spina bifida or growth issues), but it’s being closely monitored and thus far no issues.

@loveknows: I did it. But be aware that it is a VERY time sensitive test. I think it has to be done by the end of 13 weeks! Good luck.

@loveknows: I skipped it. It provides a lot of false positives & I did not need the extra worry!
