I couldn't make it to my quad screening this weekend. In fact, I can't go until tomorrow (Wed). Well, I called the dr's office to see if that was okay and the nurse said I was supposed to go when the doctor told me to go. I don't get it. I thought the optimal time to get the screening done was between 16 - 18 weeks. I will be either 17 weeks 1 day or 17 weeks 4 days on Friday (u/s was measuring ahead by 3 days).

I'm not sure. I'm supposed to be reading up on quad testing right now and weather or not I want to do it. I'm not sure that I'm going to. What are your reasons for wanting to get it done?

Dh has been on pain medication for 15 years (nerve damage due to an accident). He is very nervous that the meds could cause complications. So, to ease his mind and mine, I have decided to get the screening done. I know there are false positives, but I figured that there are steps beyond the screening to check.

I didn't need to go to the office. The lab is located on the 1st level of the building and all paperwork was given to me on Thursday. Lab tests are done on a walk-in basis.

We just went last Friday to have our Genetic counseling and to go over the screening. They all said that 16-18 weeks is OPTIMAL and they say that to give themselves a window because peoples schedules will get busy. I told them I would be out of state weeks 16-18 and they said it was no problem as long as you get it done by 20 weeks. Oh..and that what week you go does not matter with regards to the outcome of the tests.

Maybe she was just having a bad day or something. There shouldn't be any problem with you getting it done now. I'd just go today if you could.

If it's just walks in, then I think the nurse was just being a snob.

Thanks for the replies. The nurse who called me yesterday is quite rude, so I called the advice nurse and left her a message. Of course, she was a sweet as always and said it was just fine to come in today.

Sounds like she was having a bad day and took it out on you. They really shouldn't do that to pregnant woman!
