Fetal Fibronectin test. Has anyone had a negative result but DID HAVE their baby within 2 weeks?!

[deleted account] ( 4 moms have responded )

It is said that if you have a negative result there's a 1% chance that you will have your baby within 2 weeks. If you have a positive result there's a 1 in 6 chance that you will have your baby within 2 weeks. Has anyone had there baby within 2 weeks that had a negative result?! Share your stories ladies! =]

Hi speaking as someone who uses these predictive tests, we always tell women that a positive gives a 1:6 chance of birth within 48 hours, and a negative only 'predicts' that you will not give birth within 48 hours.  And having said that ALL of these things are prone to false negatives/positives.



How pregnant were you?  Is your little one OK?

I got a negative result and still was having contractions. 3 days later deliver my baby. I was very disappointed.

Thank you Tracey!






I am actually 35.5 weeks pregnant with my second child. [My first was born at 34 weeks]






I was in labor at 33 weeks but they stopped it.






We have done this test two times now and both came back negative. But i'm dilated 2cm.






Just interested in what others have to say.






 





OK for a start we don't do FFN testing after 34 weeks!!!  and because you have had a child before your cervix can be dilated for weeks before you actually give birth.  I hope for your sake that this little hangs in there a bit longer.
