So, at my ultrasound last week my high risk doc encouraged me to get the quad screen blood test. Since it was just a blood test for me I went ahead with it (I usually opt out of any extra testing during pregnancy). If you don't know, the quad screen tests for things like Trisomy 21 (Down's Syndrome), Trisomy 18 and 13 (Eli had Trisomy 13), and Neural Tube Defects such as Spina Bifida and Anencephaly. Anyway, the good news is that my numbers all came back great. 1 in 25,000 chance of Down's Syndrome, 1 in 6,000 chance of Neural Tube Defects, and no high risk for Trisomy 18. Yay!
