Hi

I have already posted on here recently re a high NT result at my 12 week scan but now I've go the bloods back I am concerned about the low PAPP-A reading of 0.23 MOM. I am having a longer wait than expected for my CVS result and it is driving me mad! I should get my results on Monday and would love to know if anyone else has had such low PAPP-A results with a good outcome.
Thank you so much to the lovely ladies who replied to my previous post. Your support has really helped during this painful time.

We had low PAPP-A and a good outcome. Good luck.

Is low PAPP-A bad? If so, I did. Sorry I can't remember now how it works! Basically, the nuchal fold measurement was a bit high, but not unusually so as I was 13+6 when it was taken. However, that combined with the PAPP-A gave me a Down' score of 1:10. I had an amnio at 16 weeks and the baby was fine - she's now 7 months old and healthy as a horse!

Thank you for your support on here. Sadly the baby had Patau Syndroome. Trying to move on and inspired to read so many positive stories. I have hope for the future.

I am so sorry to hear that, Earhat. It must be a terribly hard thing to come to terms with. My DD1 was stillborn at 41 weeks so I know a little about what you must be going through. One thing was the overwhelming need to be pg again as soon as possible. I don't know if you feel the same way, but if you do, there's a thread here for people in similar situations, ttc again after losing a baby, who can give amazing support.
