Heal Prick Tests


My HV left a message on my answer phone today saying she had the results for the heal prick tests, and asked i rang her back regarding them. If all was okay wouldnt she just say that on the message? i'm so worried

Oh honey, I can understand why you are worried but it could be the case that perhaps there wasn't enough blood on one of the circles for one the tests. My LO had to have blood taken twice as the last circle didn't get completely filled and the test couldn't be run. i know its hard but try not to worry

Sounds like you have an efficient HV. We don't get any results back (all through pregnancy it was the same). I've had to chase everything and I didn't get his HP test results back until his 6 weeks check when the Dr just said 'did you know everything came back fine?'.....great, thanks for that! lol

Try not to worry hun.

Yeah she wouldnt be allowed to leave results on an answering machine - good or not. Sometimes the heal prick test (Guthrie test) needs to be redone so it may jst be the first lot didnt work and they need to redo it. Dont expect the worst. Also my husband has PKU (one of the things they check for) and he is a strong healthy strapping man so never had any negative effects on him.. im sure it will all be fine.
