Mitchnorm I didn't realise it took so long to get the results. I just asummed things would be quicker.

My NT scan was 2.9mm which is on the high side but my DD was 2.8mm and is fine. I'm just waiting on bloods next week:-/
Some of the results come back a little quicker.....like 8 days . The bloods are sent to the US hence delay Fingers crossed for your bloods shanoa x

I had both the NT scan and the verifi test (cell free DNA) and I was very happy with my decision. We decided not to find out the sex of the baby though!

Thanks everyone...my last second opinion is today at 2pm and D&C scheduled for the morning.

Shanoa, what does that mean? What did your blood work show?

I am hoping for the best for you, Tag.

First tri screening here takes age (41), NT measurement (2.9mm which is high) and bloods (hcg and Papp-A which were around 0.6 /0.7 MOM). All of that put together gave a 1:66 chance of downs. That's still only abot 2% chance but anything worse than 1:150 is classified as high risk. We didn't want even the tiny risk of miscarriage a CVS or amino test carries so we have opted for Harmony. We head up to London tomorrow in the middle of a tube strike (oh dear).

Praying for the best for you!

Afm,

So today confirmed I need the procedure tomorrow. But the tech was thorough, sympathetic and totally reassuring.

I go in at 8:30 tomorrow morning and will probably not be on for a couple days. Just wanted to thank you all for being such amazing friends and supporters. When I'm back on the horse I'll catch up with each of you.

Shanoa I wish you luck, London in the midst of a tube strike does not sound fun. Hope the harmony test comes back low risk Will you be finding out the sex too?
