freaking out....

Postby SandraP » Fri Mar 05, 2010 4:13 pm

I had an NT scan last week and the u/s looked perfect.

Dr's office just called and told me that the protein in the b/w was low and an indicator of Trisomy 13 and Trisomy 18. they put the odds at 1 in less than 5.

They can't do CVS because they are booked up (can u believe that?) so we have to wait 12 days for an amnio and then 2 weeks after that for results....gonna be a long month.

Has anyone had this happen to them and still had a healthy baby?

Any information would be appreciated.

I don't have any info for you but I just wanted you to know that you and your LO are in my thoughts.
I know how scary it is to get news that you weren't at all expecting about your LO. Try and stay positive.

I hope that some lovely mamas on here are able to give you more answers

I would ask them to do the 3 day test results, they call it FISH results.They are just as accurate(we had them done with our LO back in 2007) but we had other issues(gastrointestinal).

Good luck sweetie!!!

they are going to do the FISH test as well, if there is enough fluid, but she seems to think since they are doing it at exactly 15 weeks there may not be enough to take a second vile of fluid....

Thank you both for your kind thoughts.

Oh my Sandra you and I are living the same life! I just had my amnio after getting a 1:49 result for DS at my NT scan. I am now in a whole nother TWO week wait on my Amnio results. I have to tell you that the last 4 weeks have been hell for me I totally know what you're going through. :(
I am on baby #4 and have never pictured myself here and worrying about my pregnancy. I have really low amniotic fluid and they could/would NOT do the FISH results for me because they didn't want to take anymore fluid than they absolutly had to. The biggest fear from my really low fluid is that the baby has not had the chance to learn to swallow, digest and urinate. I will throw in an extra prayer for you and your family as I say my own.

Oh yea, I was terrified for the Amnio and it really really wasn't bad AT ALL. The worst part was waiting in the waiting room. I promise! I had it taken from the worst spot possible, really low, and down by my cervix because that was the only pocket available. More risk for leakage, etc. But honestly don't stress so much on the Amnio it's quick and unpainful.

hugs xxxxx
