More profile play, something about the head shape is fucked but I was pleased with some elements. I’m sure when I can do it with more time and a few references I’ll figure it out. These are all cartoony anyway but I want to get certain things realistic. Did some at work before the shit hit the fan so I guess it wasn’t a full wasted day.

Hello mama! Look at you, you’ve come so far. Great job! You must be wondering, quad what? 
Now that you are in your second trimester, your doctor will advise you to go through some more prenatal screening tests. One out of which is triple or quadruple screening. The screening is done to detect the risk for chromosomal abnormalities that can cause birth defects. In India, approximately 1 out of 166 births are affected by birth defects which makes it a major concern and necessary to get screened for birth defects. Birth defects are conditions present from birth. Some birth defects can happen because of the genes passed by parents and some due to the problem with chromosomes. There is a higher risk of birth defects if you are older than 35 years, have a family history of birth defects, have a medical condition of your own like diabetes or obesity, or due to the use of certain drugs or medicine. So, as for now you probably have understood the importance of triple or quadruple screening. Let’s get into some details.
What is a triple or quadruple screen test?
A triple or quadruple test is also known as multiple marker test, extended AFP, AFP Plus. It is a basic blood test done between 15 and 20 weeks of the gestation period to detect the level of different substances in your blood: estriol, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), and, in case of a quad screen, inhibin-A.
Estriol is estrogen that comes both from your placenta and the baby while HCG and inhibin-A are made entirely by the placenta. AFP is a protein made by your baby and passes in a small amount from the placenta to your blood. These together determine the potential to develop any birth defects. The test determines your risk of having a child with Down’s Syndrome, trisomy 18, and neural tube defects (spina bifida and anencephaly) 
Wait! I am getting confused. What is the difference between a triple and a quadruple screening?
The only difference between both is that the quad screen is more apt for identifying the risk of Down’s Syndrome and is more accurate than the triple screen test.
How is it done?
Don't you worry! It is a blood test and then the sample is tested for AFP, hCG, estriol, and  Inhibin -A levels. The health professional will
Wrap an elastic band around your upper arm making the targeted vein more accessible. 
Clean the area of the skin where a needle is to be inserted
Put the needle into the vein
Attach a tube to the needle to fill the vial with blood
Remove the band 
Put a cotton ball or gauze pad over the needle site
There is no special instruction or preparation required for the test, so make up your mind and test as soon as you are ready for it.
Okay! So now that the test has been done, how do you interpret the result?
 Well, the best person to tell you about the results is your doctor, leave it on him/her. But still, you can analyze the results on your level. 
A “positive” result means that there is a higher than average chance your baby has a genetic disorder whereas a “negative”  or normal means that your baby probably doesn’t have any genetic disorder.
Low AFP- Indicates risk for neural tube defect
Low AFP, low Estriol, and high HCG level- indicate the possibility for Down’s syndrome
Low level of all markers- Indicates the risk for Edward syndrome.
 If your results are positive, your doctor may want you to take a diagnostic test known as amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS). The fluid surrounding your baby in the uterus is collected using a small needle and a sample of cells is withdrawn from your placenta in the tests respectively. Then these samples are cultured in the lab and checked to find any chromosomal abnormality. It is totally up to you whether you want to go for further tests or not. You can talk to a genetic counselor or your doctor about what you should do next. We hope you have a healthy munchkin!

okay so I was in a p/n/c att/ck situation this morning or rather the sort of situation that would have led to one or at the very least an anxiety attack - not going to give details - but I didn’t freak out, I handed it calmly and maturely and it was something that would have been fairly triggering but I didn’t! I handled it like an adult relatively well! And I am so happy! because last week sort of signified a - here we go again into my worst point - but this was a yay this is the sort of thing I perpetually avoid but I handled it relatively well and it was at school as well and i swear two or three years ago this would have been a nightmare and literally caused a breakdown but no I handled it and continued on with my day fairly well.

And the list never ends!  You keep on hearing new names from your doctor, which probably bothers you. But don’t be. Help yourself by knowing about it.
Now that you are in the second trimester of your pregnancy, you must be listening to the names of some strange tests that your doctor is recommending you to go through.
So, have you heard of the Quad Marker Test or Quadruple Marker Test?  
If not yet, you will be soon listening to it or if you have, you must be wondering, what is it about, how is it conducted, is there any risk related to the test, or what are the results in my favor?
The days are already difficult and nauseating, so don’t get stressed about the test. Just relax and keep your eyes open, we are here to help you with this. Click Here, To know more about Quad Mar`ker Test.
So, let’s first get some basics about the test.
A quad marker screen is simply a blood test. Yes, It’s easy. You just need to give a little sample of your blood and that’s it, you are done. And the rest is taken care of by your doctor. The test is recommended and conducted in your second trimester, mainly between 15-22 weeks necessarily for women who are more than 35 years or having any historical birth defect or complications in the family.
What difference does it make?
There is a great purpose behind this test. The test tells your doctor about the chances that your baby is carrying any genetic or neural disorder, birth defect, or any other complication or not. Your baby is still not diagnosed for any of the problems, it is just a screening test it does not necessarily mean that your baby is going to be affected by some problem. Many babies have made their way to be normal even after some complications.
The test is important because it can detect conditions like Down’s syndrome, neural tube defect, and other chromosomal abnormalities. To know more about Down’s Syndrome, Click Here
Wanna know how it’s done?
Just a few ounces of your blood.
Your doctor will simply collect your blood sample from one of your veins, which obviously wouldn’t hurt. Now, your doctor’s work is to screen out the levels of four substances found in your blood. The four substances in which your doctor is interested are alpha-fetoprotein, human chorionic gonadotropin, unconjugated estriol, and inhibin-A. The high or low levels of these substances in your blood indicate different complications and risks that your child can have.
You must be worried about the risks involved in this test, as you are a vigilant mother. You’ll be relieved to know that the quad screen does not pose any risks of miscarriage or any other complications. It is just a basic prenatal screening test. However, the results may cause you anxiety but in the end, it depends on you, how you deal with it.
Worried about the results? Don't be, keep calm!
The healthcare provider analyzes the test results by using your age at the estimated time of delivery and determines your chances of carrying a baby with chromosomal defects, neural tube defects, and abdominal wall defects. Certain factors affect the substances measured by a quad screen like:
Maternal  race,
Maternal weight,
Smoking during pregnancy,
Carrying more than one baby,
A miscalculation of how long you’ve been pregnant.
A “positive” result simply means that the levels of some or all the substances in your blood were outside the normal range. In this case, the doctor might recommend an ultrasound to check the baby’s gestational age and find out the number of babies you are carrying. You may also choose to go for further tests like:
Prenatal cell-free DNA screening,
Targeted ultrasound,
Chorionic villus sampling (CVS),
Remember! The quad screen results only indicate your probability of carrying a baby with birth defects and are not 100% accurate. Consult a genetic counselor or your doctor to understand the test results better.

Wide use of reagents and kits in all basic diagnostic activities in laboratories, academic institutes, and POC settings is expected to result in the segment occupying the majority of the cardiac marker testing market share
Growing number of cardiac marker testing procedures, accessibility to a wide range of cardiac biomarker reagents and kits, and the growing demand for reliable, specific, and faster detection of cardiovascular diseases at an early stage are the key growth factors for this segment.
Troponin I and T estimated to be the fastest-growing market
Troponin I and T is estimated to be the fastest-growing segment in the cardiac marker testing  market. The large share of this segment can be attributed  high sensitivity and specificity, long elevation times, and rapid prediction of outcome or mortality.
North America is estimated to be the largest market due increasing incidence of cardiovascular diseases, growing public and private investments, NIH support for the development of novel cardiac biomarkers, and the rising geriatric population.
Asia Pacific likely to emerge as the largest cardiac marker testing  market, globally
Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for cardiac marker testing  during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific market is driven due increased healthcare spending by a larger population base, healthcare infrastructure modernization, and the rising penetration of cutting-edge clinical laboratory technologies (especially in rural areas) in Asia Pacific countries.
