    Ah, good for you hun.

    The reason they cant perform the screening triple test with twins or more is because it tests for high levels of protein along with other things, and with 2 there is double the amoung if you get what i mean, so would totally be inaccurate. I learnt alot about screening tests when harry was diagnosed with chromosone abnormalities!
