For my first pregnancy, at a different hospital, I'm pretty sure I had the quad test, and the options seemed pretty straightforward. When I had my first prenatal appointment for my miscarriage back in the fall, I was extremely confused by the options, even after the midwife spent 15 minutes explaining. It seemed like you could do two parts of the test at the same time, or at different times, and it influenced both the accuracy and whether follow up testing would be by amniocentesis or some other option with a higher miscarriage risk. Does anyone know what I am talking about and would you be able to explain it to me so I don't spend my whole appointment next week with a glazed expression on my face.

I think it is the same as the NT scan. They do a detailed US and blood work to test for downs and Trisomy 18. Once they get the results of this they will tell you if they suggest an amnio based on the results.
I am having it done just after 12 weeks. I had it done with my last pregnancy as well.

Maybe you are thinking of the AFP test?

My head felt like it was going to explode yesterday with the talk of different tests for me.

Maybe. Maybe the quad or the triple screen is broken up into different times at that office. All I know is that depending on whether you had them together, at different times, or just one, the follow up was either by amnio or by CVS.
