    Just wondering if anyone else has had this test performed and what was the outcome

    I had the test done when I went to hospital at 34 weeks and the result was negative. 18 hours later I delivered DD2

    I haven't had it done personally but I have seen it done a number of times ( between 5-10) as I am a midwife.
    I've never seen anyone deliver soon after a negative result, but its not 100% guarentee, I think its 95% or something. Come to think of it I don't think I've seen a positive result from it but I haven't seen heaps.
    Where you in an appropriate hospital to have a 34 weeker?

    My sil had it done around the same time and it was apparently positive. She ended up being induced on her edd because her ob was a twat and she was impatient.

    From what i have read its one of those tests that is pretty much useless ><;

    I was told that if it's negative, it's negative. But there are false positives.
    I had it done at 31w, and DD was delivered by planned c/s at 34w.

    I had it done at 33+5 and was positive. Got relaxants & steroids and had her very quickly at 34+2, so correct for me!
