I've been on here when I was TTC and found the forum full of very positive support.
I had my 12 week scan and the screening results for chromosomal abnormalities came back as "high risk" for Down Syndrome.
Our chance of our baby having DS is 1:85.
As a percentage I know the odds are actually in our favour but are there any ladies out there that have been in a similar situation?
We were offered a non invasive blood test with 99.7% accuracy so basically this would give a yes or no answer. We could be waiting for as long as next week for the results and the wait is destroying me. I'm seriously a mess right now.
The reason we were flagged as "high risk" was because of the bloods. Everything else's including Nuchal Translucency Test was normal. The bloods shows high HCG Beta and low Papp-A.
These are my results:
Nuchal Translucency: 1.81mm (normal)
Crown to rump length: 70.6mm
Free beta HCG: 3.9MoM
Other factors such as my age, I don't smoke and no diabetes didn't effect it and with the NT measuring normal, the 1:85 ratio has come purely from the blood work.
Any advice from anyone in a similar/has been in a similar situation?
I'm not coping very well with the waiting for the results so looking for a bit of support. X
Scary 1st Trimester Screening results. Going out of my mind.
