Hi Faith. You might be better asking for this to be moved into Antenatal Tests in order to get more responses.

I'm sorry for the news you have had today, it's hard to hear and you must be very worried. You need to wait for the results of the CVS and take any decisions from there as the scan and bloods only suggest that there could be problems. They are in no way definitive and there may not be a problem.

I would try posting in the other section as I know other people there have gone through similar situations.
