Sending you prayers. Just wanted to let you know that I did the Harmony (which is similar to Materni21 - just another lab). It took 11 calendar days to return. While they say it remains a screening test, they are testing actual baby cells within your blood. My doc believes it will ultimately replace the CVS and amnio. I am sorry - but I do not know your age. I am 39. That factor alone increases my odds of making the quad screen come back as a false positive- so I decided to go straight to the Harmony. As I understand it, the quad screen was designed to tell women whether there was even a reason to test further. It separated those with nearly no chance of a problem from those with some chance (even if that chance is only 1/150 - meaning 149 would be healthy). I wish I could say something to make you feel reassured - but I suspect I cannot (I know I needed the actual results to make me feel better.). I hope you get your results quickly.
