Ladies:

I took my first alpha fetoprotein test today. Won't have the results until next Tuesday, but at least some news will be coming.

Hopefully everything is completely on track.

Next stop is the maxed-out ultrasound next Thursday, with all the measuring and imaging and nuchal transluciency and what not.

I say again, hopefully everything is completely on track.

I've heard from my OB's office, who got a phone message from the AMA testing department.

My results are "fine". That's all they said.

While I am *very* happy to have a "fine" result, that is not to my way of thinking a medical evaluation. So I've called the AMA testing group to ask for an actual result.

I am science oriented and I like to know what the actual results are and what they mean.

Until I get a call back, I'm holding my head high with a big smile over my "fine"!

Libby

P.S. The maxed-out US is Thursday afternoon, so I'll be updating you then for sure!!
