Sorry to hear tag.. Hopefully your dates are just a little out x
They dont offer the nucheal (spelling?) test here im in northern ireland.. Well at least they didnt when i had my last child whose almost four.. Gah im a constant ball of worry, but ce sera sera and all that.. I dont have my first midwife appointment until the 15th and thats only for booking in
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).
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.
