Dina, when I was pg last time at 42, my OB recommended against the AFP test saying basically because of my age, it would prob come back positive for Down's.

Thanks Carol... I'm trying to stay positive... especially given the ultrasound results looked good.

Congrats to you on you baby girl ! I just want to share with you first Im 44 and going to have to make the decision to have or not have an amnio, my hubby and I talked and we said this; for us regaurdless to if this baby had downs or not or something else we would love them unconditionally.


So the other thought is that I had a sister that went through this and it ended up her baby was a normal healthy little guy and grew up to be a wonderful person who at age 21 has a sone of his own. So test are good yes but pray works, I don't want to prech but god heals and he knows what he wants for all of us and you and your little one. So pray as we all will and try not to be stressed out.... This is the key.. Walk drink plenty of fluids and stay active and busy. Good luck to you, and keep us posted.....
