IPS test results= positive.
Okay so here's the scoop. I had the IPS test done last month because I have Down's syndrome in the family and I just wanted to be prepared. I thought for sure when my Dr called me and told me there was an "abnormality" in my test results that it was due to the Down's. I was referred to a Genetic Specialist and she told me that my test results came back positive for Spina Bifida. Of course they tell you not to think the worst (but you can't help it) and that it could be nothing at all. I’m still waiting to do the ultrasound and don't even have an appointment booked yet (3 weeks later). I'm finding as the days turn into weeks that my stress level is getting unbearable with trying to make the decision on amniocentesis and all the other choices that were given to me.
Since I don't have any friends or family that have had to go through this i'm finding it very hard to find someone to talk to. My husband is very supportive and optimistic (you can say he looks at the situation with sunshine and rainbows!) which is great but, just makes me feel worse when I know that everything might not be all right.
If anyone can lend some experience with this I’m sure it would help, more than you'll ever know!
