I just got a phone from the doctor that this test came back positive, and now they want to do an amnio...

Has anyone else had a false positive? What should I expect? I am terrified.... I can't stop crying.

I think false positives are fairly common with most of those tests. I don't have any experience with it myself (I declined all of the genetic testing with my last pregnancy because of the rate of false positives), but I wish you and your baby the best of luck! Hopefully it's nothing at all.

False positive are very common with some of those genetic test. I just refuse them because they put you through un needed stress for the most part. Good luck and I hope it is just a false positive!!

I'm sorry Tarra, I don't have any advice but I'm seeing that false positives are common so I am hoping that it's nothing. Sending positive vibes your way.

Broken record here but I have heard the same, false positives are very common. You will be in my prayers!
