Having a high risk for DS and other possible issues...

Postby ambien » Mon Oct 18, 2010 6:25 am

I'm depressed.

Did the oscar test today, and the babes looked fine. They were active, kicking and swimming, had low nuchal translucency and visible nose bones. However, my blood test for PAPP-a came out bad, pretty low. The sonologist said I should do an amniocentesis to check for sure but there's that miscarriage risk....and it's so scary to wanna check and then you kill your babies. :(

My uncle who's a gynae advised against it since with twins u have to do twice. Moreover the NT levels were within normal ranges. (I also read of this lady who had cramps, bleeding and preterm labour when she did an amnio...her baby couldn't survive at 15 weeks, so traumatizing!)

I also read this study on the internet about how low PAPP ranges came about more frequently with women who did ART and IVF...something about early implantation affecting the values.

Please keep us in your prayers. We are so affected right now... :(
