Yesterday, I got such great news!
Dr. Allen, my MFM Specialist that did my NT Screening and will do my gender/anatomy scan to determine if my fifth disease affected the baby's heart at all, called to say that my results had come in from the NT Screening. For someone my age (25), the risk of having a baby with Downs Syndrome is 1/1250. After reviewing my AFPF and HCG levels and the measurements taken during the ultrasound, the risk of this baby having Downs is 1/8,600, and the risk of the baby having trisomy, a serious and usually terminal genetic condition, is 1/10,000. I'll take those odds! I'm SO glad I did the screening!!!!
That great of news makes bonuses and money and anything else, really, just not seem to matter :)
