You've already been through so much. I'm sorry that you're going through this now. I hope everything comes back normal.

Take care.

First trimester screening

Postby mel h. » Tue May 16, 2006 05:26 pm

We had our first trimester screening this afternoon, and now I have something new to worry about. The nuchal fold translucency (area of the neck) came back a little thicker than normal, about 3.5 mm. They like it to be about 2.5. They'll run the accompanying bloodwork and have it hopefully this week. We'll know then if it's truly an abnormal result. They use this test, combined with your age, as a way to calculate your odds of having a genetically abnormal baby. Oftentimes people with an abnormal result follow up with an amnio and everything's fine. I had an amnio with Ashley (she was chromosomally normal) and was really hoping to not have to have another one with this baby.
I was just so hoping that they would do the scan, say "everything looks great!" and send us on our merry way. Of course it couldn't be that way.
The baby is measuring bigger than GA, though, so that's good, at least.
Here we go on the roller coaster ride again. How I wish pregnancy could just be smooth sailing like it is for just about everyone else I know.
My husband said if we didn't have jobs and were hooked on meth, we'd probably have a perfect pregnancy and baby. [:D]
