Don't feel bad. I was given the same info. I was told that the test isn't accurate quite a bit. I wouldn't worry. Because they put me at high risk I was able to get the MaterniT21 test for free though so I guess there's always a silver lining. Good luck Mama!

I'm not even sure if we have that here, I've never heard of it! I thought they still just did amnios, which i would refuse because of the risks lol. DS has a higher chance and he's normal, so I know it's common to get "false positives". I just find it hard not to worry :(

I would definitely talk to your doctor and ask about it. It's also known has the Harmony test. It's 99% accurate at detecting down syndrome as well as a few other syndromes. It also gives a 99% gender accuracy too. :)
