Test Results

We had the "Quad Screen" and Cystic Fibrosis test done at 15 weeks.  This tests for things such as spina bifida (incomplete formation of the spinal column) , anencephaly (basically no skull) , trisomy 21 (Downs Syndrome) and trisomy 18 (Edwards Syndrome).  Results of the quad screen indicate your risk of carrying a baby who has certain developmental or chromosomal conditions but it does not say whether or not the baby has the condition.

I opted to get tested just in case the results were positive-then I'd have time to prepare.

We got our results on Saturday- everything was negative.  YAY!  I didn't even realize how worried I was until I got the results.  Chase and I were both pretty thrilled that Sprout is more than likely developing normally.
