Screening results and general venting..


Hi ladies... iv been absent from the board as iv been so ill. Iv been diagnosed with hyperemesis and itís kicked me butt in a big way. Iv been hospitalised twice for dehydration.

Iím 13 +3 and last week we had our 12 week scan. The scan went great, sonographer said everything looked normal for this stage. We had the nuchal test and the measurement was 1.2.. so also a good normal measurement. Hopped off to get my bloods done and awaited the results.

This is my third pregnancy. Iím 36- I had twins 13 years ago and 6 years ago my son. I do suffer with morning sickness quite badly but nothing to this time around experience.

My results came back on Friday as:

1:165 for Down syndrome
1:10000 for the other trisomys

Congratulations you are low risk.

Now yes I saw the low risk part, but instantly panicked. The cut of for high risk is 1:150 so Iím still rather close to that and I do recall with my son I was something like 1:6000.

I called the dr on the letter and she was lovely and very factual. She said that my hcg levels were double what theyíd typically see at this stage and my Papp-a was a little low. So adding those to my age gave me my risk number.

Iím now booked for the harmony test for further assessment.

No judgment ladies needed, but we wouldnít continue with this pregnancy should the baby have DS or another genetic disorder for reasons that I wonít go into.

As you can imagine Iím going out my mind, coupled with my hyperemesis Iím a bloody mess.

I guess Iím after input from anyone thatís been through this ?

Google is a blinkin nightmare

I was 1:11 for trisomy 18, 13 and 1:17 for Down Syndrome. I did the MaterniT21 test and results came back with typical chromosomes. She is now 5. It's still really in your favor of everything being fine, but I understand the worry. I wish you well and hope you get your test and results quickly.

With my second pregnancy my original blood test came back showing positive for trisomy 13. I naturally panicked as that is more often than not fatal in utero :/

I went for the amnio and turns out the baby was fine - my son is now 11 and perfectly healthy.

I wish you the best *hugs*

I'm sure it's terrifying because 1/165 kind of SOUNDS like a reasonable chance at first glance. But that is literally less than 1% chance. There is an overwhelming probability everything will be fine! Good luck and try not to stress too much
