    I've just had a call from the hospital, they had lost my bloods and they had to be repeated, results came back this morning and my risk for Down syndrome has come back as 1:4 :(
    I've been booked to see the consultant for a CVS tomorrow morning and I'm terrified :(
    Praying for a positive outcome.......

    I'm so sorry, that sounds like quite a worrying result, certainly not what you were expecting, I'm sure.:hugs:

    Good luck for your appointment tomorrow. If it were me, I'd take the time to do some research today so I could fire any questions at the medical professional that performs the CVS test. Knowledge is power.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Let us know how you get on. xx

    Thanks ladies, I am alternating between sitting here blubbing and looking on Google - I should probably stay off Google though, it's not really helping!xx

    Sorry to hear this, i know you must be really worried right now, but try not to get too scared by the numbers. 1:4 also means there is a 75% chance everything will be fine...thats pretty good odds really! Fx everything turns out ok for you!

    Me again, just had a look back at your scan pics and in the first one it looks like you LO has a nasal bone, although I'm no expert, I've read that is a good sign. Xxx

    Hi Mishi, I have had that phone call, it is awful so I know how you are feeling. I was 1:30, opted to wait an agonising 2 weeks for an amnio which thankfully turned out ok. When I discussed my result with my midwife she went though past results with me which included those with 1:4 odds which all turned out ok. How was your nuchal measurement? Mine was 1.8 so well within the range expected. My age (37) and bloods low Papp a and high hcg bumped my score up. Firstbabyeek is right the presence of a nasal bone is a good sign, mine was prominent in my 12 week scan as is yours I think? Google is not always much help so I would try and stay away if you can, there is one or two sites that i found though that helped. PM me if you like or have any questions, hope all goes well tomorrow. Xx

    NT measurement was 2.7 which I think is the higher end of normal? Im 39 and like you my PPaP A is low and bHCG high. Yes, there is a prominent nasal bone on my 12 weeks scan, so I'm trying to stay positive, but it's difficult and I've been in tears all day. I just want Bubs to be ok.

    Thank you all for your support, it means alot.x

    :hugs: So sorry you've been in tears :hugs: Anything over 3.5mm is considered out of normal range, so 2.7mm is well within the normal range. I've read that a measurement of 2.8mm at 13 weeks is also considered normal, so try not to worry. I know its easier said than done.

    Do let us know how you get on tomorrow, will be thinking of you xx
