Thanks for your advice.

I have done 4 D Ultrasound but nothing indicating spina bifida. We don't have proper genetic counselor here.

I have no advice to offer, but I wanted to come in to give you my support. I know how hard and confusing these things can be and I know you must be having a very hard time with this. I will be sending positive thoughts your way and hoping that everything works out the way you would like it to.

I really can't explain how confusing. The triple marker test not even done in Calcutta, I had to send my sample to Mumbai and the test is very expensive. Very few doctors are aware about triple marker test. I think my doctor was misguiding me. If we knew this is a screening test we refused the test.

There is no proper place in Calcutta for amniocentesis or CVS.

I'm glad you said the ultrasound didn't show spina bifida. That gives some encouragement. Continue to have ultrasounds to show that. God bless you and and your new family. I'm sure you will be a great mother no matter what the outcome is.
