Abnormal AFP!!

Geez, just when I take a deep breath. My Triple screen/AFP came back abnormal. So my OB sent me to Maternal Fetal Medicine to have a Level 2 ultrasound. I know that the test is notorious for false positives so I wasn't that bothered, just a bit curious. But they are feeding my need to see the baby on a regular basis and that makes me happy. The sonographer is a friend of mine so that was cool and she would tell me if anything looked funny, she said that the baby looked perfect as far as she could tell. Then Dr MFM walks in the door and tells me that there is no such thing as a false positive AFP. What the f?????? So now I am nervous. He says that it is like saying you have a false positive hemoglobin. It is a number plain and simple. Just what I needed to have another thing to worry about! Oh well, at least they have found another reason for me to see our little creation on the big screen on a regular basis.
On another note, though I may not be posting much these days I am keeping up with most of you!! I am holding my breath for Mary Ellen, praying for the last Straw (pun intended) for Rachel, and praying that all that Samantha's stitches holds that baby in there!!
You guys have been on a role lately. Most of you through your frustration have written some very funny blogs. I actually laughed out loud at a couple of you!! I can appreciate good infertile humor. (Sorry, I don't consider myself amongst the fertile.) I am hoping and praying for you all!!
