I was wondering about the Maternal Serum Test with my now 2 yr old my hubby says though we decided not too do it this time it is different the doctor gave us 2 papers for pathology one was for blood screens like Reubella and other things and an urne test the other was for the Maternal Serum test It wasnt till I got to pathology that I was handed info about the tssting,left wondering why do u get it now shouldn't the doctor give it too you so u can pre read it and know what it is about It explains what is involved and how it works and about the ultrasound where the check the back of the neck of the baby for excess fluid and also with the blood test if the chances are high but even then u can have a perfect normal baby there r 2 follow up test which can in small numbers result in miscarriage
one being Amniocentesis
I have a u/s booked next Wed and this info goes to her but am wondering how she will be if I don't do it my OBGYN last time asked did I do it and I said no about the maternal serum test and he was like why not!! felt like I was in the principals office LOL!!!!!
It is up too you if u have the test or not but feel like the professionals prefer u too probably as to give u the option of abortion but this is not a option any way with my DH or me
Did u feel like u where pressured in too getting it done did u do it did u not do it and why not
Love to hear comments about how other preg mums feel about this test
