The test results from the blood taken at my last appointment are in. I'm not even sure what the test was - if we did the AFP, the Triple Screen or the Quad Screen - but they all look for the same things - elevated risks of Down's Syndrome or neural tube defects (like spina bifida). Remember, the abnormal results on this test were the first indication that some was askew in Becca's pregnancy. I'm happy to report that this go 'round, the results were completely normal! Now, that's not an indication that everything is going to go swimmingly or anything, but it's a great sign that this babe and its placenta are developing normally, which is a BIG step in the right direction! Wohoo!
