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.

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

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.

@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.

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

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

Wonderful news - so pleased for you!

Well the wait is finally over thank goodness. I didn't have the courage to make the call so my DH did and then he rang me. The news is good, the results came back as normal and I feel a huge weight has been lifted. I'm so glad I had the CVS and feel I can finally enjoy this pregnancy and embrace my growing little bump instead of detaching myself mentally for fear of the worst.
Every single one of you have helped me through this and I simply can not thank you enough. You have been the family and friends I really needed over the last week or so. I send every single one of you a hug and a massive thank you.
A 1:20 chance seemed much easier to cope with when it was put as a 5% chance and that's thanks to you. Everything seemed to be put into pespective and became much easier to cope with.
Anyway the wait is over it is happy news today and we've celebrated with a take away. I shall sleep well tonight LOVE TO YOU ALL THANKS FOR BEING THERE FOR ME XXXXX thanks

DontTellAnyonebut Tue 27-Sep-11 17:36:36

mrsbigz Mon 26-Sep-11 21:13:45

just wanted to say i'll be thinking of you tomorrow xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Taffeta Mon 26-Sep-11 21:05:30

plum - thinking of you, have been there. The waiting is just the worst. All the very best for tomorrow.

I always find, whatever the situation, after one sleepless night I always sleep better the next night - because I'm knackered! Hope the same is true for you x
