Please help,went for my 12 week dating scan and nuchal test last wednesday. I'm almost 14 weeks, midwife phoned me today (Saturday) to tell me I had a 1:20 chance of DS. She said I can have a CVC on Tuesday or wait til I'm 16 weeks and have an amnio. I'm so shocked and confused DH is at work and I feel I have no-one to talk to about this. She said the risk of miscarriage for the CVC is 1:100 and amnio is 1:150. I am 35 and although I have a healthy 5yr old DD I have had three previous MC's. What do I do? Any advice greatly received. I bled for two and a half weeks at 6wks and presumed I'd already lost it,but an early scan showed a heart beat. I definitely want to know but which procedure do I opt for? HELP HELP HELP.

Oh, that's great news plum !
Hope I didn't say the wrong things ( as I'm not a great fan of these tests) , but seems like if I did I've been forgiven anyway !smile
Have some flowers too ! thanks

that's great news plum - and I can tell you the memory of those horrible days does gradually fade and you start to have confidence in the pregnancy again. But would echo everything you said about the value of the support on here - I dont think we would have made it without it - that's why I periodically check in and offer support where I can.

delighted for you

@ayeshassan you'd probably be better to start your own thread in Antenatal tests, this is a very old one and people may not see your message.

T21 is Downs Syndrome.

1/20 is in the high side. However, it still means you only have a 5% risk, or a 19/20 chance all is well. The amnio results are usually quick, I hope it goes well for you.

Need prayers

Ayeshassan Thu 03-Jan-19 06:10:21

Hi, you'd probably be best starting your own thread on this

WipsGlitter Thu 03-Jan-19 07:31:55

Sorry I've just seen you've done that. Poor test results can happen for lots of reasons eg getting an insufficient sample.

What you might be best doing is considering what you would do if the result comes back positive for DS as you might have to decide quickly if you want to continue the pregnancy.

You can have a nonvasive test none just involves taking blood from arm and will not hurt baby but will cost like £400 I had a 1 in 12 chance and after the non vasive I found out 99 percent chance baby was in the clear
