Welcome to ehealthforum,
Without knowing the actual results you cannot assume that it will bring bad news alone. If values are abnormal, you will be asked to undergo further tests to confirm the baby condition and the amount of effect on the baby. Ultrasound scan and genetic counseling helps. And even if you are identified as âincreased riskâ, the studies have revealed that in most cases identified as âincreased riskâ, the baby born is normal. Do not worry, go ahead with visiting your doctor/gynecologist and discuss the test results. Be in regular follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist.
