Not necessarily. I presume you are referring to AFP? It can be high or low if you are even a little off with your date of conception. Best way to find out is to have an ultrasound where they check the nuchal translucency of the baby. That is a pretty definitive way that is non-invasive. Otherwise an amniocentesis can detect any chromosomal abnormalities. Good Luck
