Dr called me back

So my obgyn called me back and said the results of the second blood test came back normal but he wants me to have a level two sonogram anyways. I cancelled my appointment for today and am rescheduling at another place, because I don't want to risk getting the same techincian anyways, there are only two techs that work there. I breathed a sigh of relief but I am still a little concerned. He said sometimes false positives happen, scary thought.

Thanks again for all your prayers ladies.

Yes!!!!!!!! Oh Monica, I'm so, so glad for you! I think it's smart that you're going to a different place for the u/s. A bad tech can just make the experience so unpleasant. I'd be concerned too until I saw everything looked good on the u/s, but knowing the blood test was fine has to be a big relief.

Thanks Jamie!! I am so incredibly relieved! I asked my obgyn to refer me someplace else for the level two sonogram. My obgyn said what might have made the results on the first test high was the bleeding I had in the first trimester, now he tells me ;)

Thank you :) Yeah my obgyn seemed nervous after he gave me the results saying that sometimes you get a false positive. If I have another baby after this one I will opt out of this test. Im looking forward to going to a place where two friends of mine have gone and recommend. Hope it will be a good experience. I'm so glad I dont have to worry.

Great news! I wonder what the rate of false positives is? I'm glad he re-tested you. :)

Awesome news!! What a load off your shoulders - and even more so when you go to a place without that tech to worry about. ;-)

Hmmm I'm not sure! My obgyn seemed nervous over the phone after he told me the last blood test I took was fine. I wasted time worrying and crying for nothing. I'm so glad everything is ok. Thanks for your prayers :)
