This Thursday had CVS done as scan + Blood test results were showing very high risk for Down's syndrome. Although the scan showed absolutely no bad signs (the nasal bone formatting fine, the translucency was measured at around 2mm), but last week received a horrifying call from the hospital saying that I have 1:5 risk for Down's. It is such a shock and such a scary experience. We made a difficult decision to go for CVS. The procedure itself wasn't that bad or painful, but now the wait time for the results is the hardest part. Can't sleep, can't eat and so freighting to think what we'll do if the results will be bad. With all my heart trying to push away bad thoughts and hoping for the best results, but it's so hard to do and the time seems stopped! So wanted to share this experience hoping that maybe there are some other mums waiting for their CVS results and this way maybe the wait could be a little bit easier by sharing our thoughts and feelings.
I am so sorry you are going through this. Can I ask how old you are? My friend who is 41 had a very high risk but it was mainly because of her age. She had the CVS & the baby is fine! I hope you get a good result too. X
Im sorry you are having to go through this too. I had a CVS last year due to high risk of chromosomal problems, I wont go into my story as it isn't helpful but if you go here www.mumsnet.com/Talk/antenatal_tests_choices you will find many ladies who are going through the same thing or have recently been through this. The support here is amazing. I wish you well, the waiting is awful, it was one of the most stressful times of my life xx
Thank you ladies for support words. LittleSquirt, I'm 33, so even doctor said that according to the age, I should not be falling into this high risk, but sadly sometimes it doesn't even depend on the age. NatzCNL, thank you very much, gonna have a look at the link.
