I am hoping someone might have some reassuring words. I am 13 weeks pregnant with twins and just got results from my first trimester screening with 1/59 odds of having a downs syndrome baby. I am 41 which probably factors into the statistics. The nuchal fold screening seemed good...baby A's measurement was 1.3 and baby B's measurement was 1.4 (both well below the 3.0 threshold). I am wondering if anyone else had stats like this and went on to have a healthy baby? I did do a harmony test but will not get those results for a few days and I am totally worried. Thanks in advance.
Just remember that until those babies are born NOTHING is certain. I've heard stories like yours, and then the baby comes out perfectly healthy. I'm sure your babies are just fine and your measurements sound great!
Wow, twins! How exciting I wouldn't stress hun, like PP said, you can choose to look at it from the other end and see 58:59 odds of healthy babies. Both babies are well in the normal range for NT, so that's reassuring. Hang in there til your harmony results, but I'm sure they'll be ok
I wouldn't worry Hun they don't just do your risk on NT they then add in age factor and nonsense. I just pulled out some old paperwork from last year and read that a 1:60 for women aged 35-45 is the same as a 1:600 for 25-35... Why??? I don't know.
I'm sure your babies will be just fine Hun nothing is certain until they arrive in birthday suits
I had a 1:82 chance come back a few weeks ago and also had a high NT measurement and I'm only 31. I was really upset and v worried, had the harmony test like you (results took 10 days exactly including weekends) and everything is absolutely fine there is nothing wrong. I'm sure everything will be fine for you too
Just remember that until those babies are born NOTHING is certain. I've heard so many horror stories like yours, and then the baby comes out perfectly healthy. I'm sure your babies are just fine and your measurements sound great!
Keep your head up momma.
Having a child with Down syndrome is NOT NOT NOT a horror story. I am so saddened by the ignorance here...
