High AFP

Margaret • 31 years old, Married for 4 years (been together since 2002), first time mom-to-be due in Feb 2016.
Hi...has anyone been told that their AFP Is higher than normal during the genetic screening? The rest of my results were normal which the doctor felt was very reassuring yet she was obligated to tell me that having a high AFP increases your risk of the dreaded M word before 6 months or a small baby. ( I am currently 18 weeks today )
I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance to see that healthy babies are still delivered with higher AFP values ... 😥
Thanks everyone ❤️
