I know there are a few other names for it too. Can someone fill me in on this? Is this something insurance covers? What info do you get from it?

Im getting it on the 29th, at my NT scan. Insurance does cover it for "high" risk. (aka, older moms of 35 and up) or if you are at a higher risk for other chromosonal issues (family and previous birth history). If your not high risk or fall into these catergories, it may not be covered.

The test is NOT DIAGNOSTIC, it is a screening like the other first trimester screens, but this carries a higher % of non-false positives and is 99% accurate. It will look ONLY for the 3 common Trisomys (21, 18 and 13). It does not look at nueral tube (msp, sorry) defects. Only the quad screen is used for that and/or amnio or CVS. Amnio and CVS are the ONLY diagnostic testing done directly on the baby.........the Marteni21 looks through your blood, so is therefore considered a screening with a very high accuracy.

Hope this helps, I just had an in depth conversation with my OB, who broke it all down for me. I had thought it was diagnostic, but he explained that because they are looking through my blood to see the baby's DNA, it is not considered diagnostic, but still a screening.

Im really hoping to go Team Green, as I have 4 boys and 3 girls already, so I have no preference AT ALL, lol......BUT, because they can tell me when I get this test, I might crack, lol. I think if I get good results, I will TRY and pass on the gender.......if it is not favorable news for me, I will ask then (I will need something else to lift my spirits if its bad news). So, that's my stance on it right now......but, knowing me, I'LL CRACK, lol.
