Just looking for some reassurance really!
My serum screening has come back as:
PAPP- A 0.8 MoM
bhgc 1.22 MoM
My NT was 2.2 at 12 W 4 Days
My overall risk is 1 in 2781- low risk.
My midwife isn't concerned but being a first time mum to be I worry and over analyse everything. I'm trying to stop.
Is that MoM for PAPP- A too low? I've seen elsewhere it should be closer to 1?
I already take aspirin daily for pre eclampsia risk due to health issues.
Also the bhgc is also meant to be close to 1?
I spoke to my midwife yesterday about my NT because 2.2 seems high compared to others and then she gave me these other results and I'm now even more anxious!!
Sorry that's meant to read Bhcg!
Looks ok to me. Anything below 0.41 papp a is the cut off for risk on my area. Mine is 0.4 (low risk for downs) it just means I have extra growth scans as this low reading could signal a small baby but also might mean nothing.
Thanks so much for your reply! It's good to see other numbers in context. I hope your all of your scans go OK xx
