We had an NT of 4.2mm and everything turned out ok. We had the same odds as you also. Googling was very reassuring and i must say that the odds of having a completely normal baby from this are high. All the best x

Update!


I JUST got the results - NORMAL! No chromosomal issues. The genetic counselor said now we have to wait for the "microarray" results, which is another 2 weeks! Like, seriously?? But she did say that our chances of the baby being normal and healthy went WAY up since we got initial normal results. She said we should feel very reassured - and I do!

I'm glad I did not terminate. Although, I know we're not in the clear and there's a still a chance something could be wrong. But I have more faith now that maybe it will turn out okay. Thanks everyone for all your positive thoughts and support. Truly!

P.S. - Its a boy!

Thanks ladies for your support - it really makes me feel better! We're not out of the woods yet...still waiting on this microarray stuff and the noonan's test. We might get results Thur or Fri, but more likely Monday. Will keep you all posted! I've read just about EVERY increased/thick NT thread on the internet and the worst is when people don't come back and say what happened! I will be back when more results become available.

I'm so glad to read that you had positive news! How are you feeling now? For the record, I don't think you sound cold (let alone like a sociopath!), I think you sound scared for your baby. I've had a few losses in the past and am very slow to bond with a pregnancy now and I actually think that's a good thing. I have two healthy kids and I love them beyond words and I know without the shadow of a doubt that I'll love this baby just as much when it joins us. That doesn't mean that I can't be guarded about my feelings before I know everything is ok though. Since our first loss, I've tried to think of early pregnancy as the chance of a baby, rather than a baby already, and when we had a very early loss at 6.5 weeks, I was honestly mostly relieved that it didn't happen later. So from that point of view I can understand your desire to terminate rather than risk having to make that decision later, even though I can't possibly say what I'd want in your situation. We've had 5 scans already and a low nt measurement but no blood work yet and I'm only now starting to believe this is going to result in a baby for us, hopefully. It sounds like this is your first baby? If that's the case, I can totally see how you'd feel weird about feeling "cold" about the pregnancy before you know you'll be ok, but honestly, I don't think it'll affect your bond with the baby or how good a mother you will be one bit. Try not to beat yourself up about it!
By all means address the things in your past that you think might be interfering with your bond with this pregnancy but honestly, don't worry that that bond won't come. Wishing you all the very best and nothing but plain sailing from now on!

Amygdala, thanks for being so non-judgmental and empathetic. This whole situation has really opened my eyes to the mixed opinions and feelings people have regarding high-risk pregnancies, and has really made me examine my own mixed feelings on it. It's a roller-coaster with a lot of grey areas, frustration and waiting. It sucks man! I'm so sorry to hear about your pregnancy struggles and losses. I totally understand why it's hard to bond with a baby who may or may not actually make it into the world. So much of bonding with the baby involves imagination, and planning, and visions of the future...when that is taken away from you, it's almost like having a stranger living in your belly. It's a bizarre and anxiety-ridden existence until you get answers one way or another. Congrats on making it this far in your current pregnancy! It sounds like this one is ready for the long journey! I wish you and your little guy or gal a stress-free and healthy pregnancy as well! Keep me posted!

P.S. ya'll - microarray came back normal! Now we have the noonan's test and detailed ultrasound next. Both of those results will be available in 2-2.5 weeks...hoping only good news for my lil dude from here on out! Will update after the scan.
