Oh, I'm so sorry. I've been waiting for an update and hoping it was good news. I know you must know all the stats and the false positives, but since I'm in the "late 30s" category, we've been sent to genetic counselling and after looking at all their stuff, I feel better than I did before I went! The chances that the baby is fine far outweighs the chance that he/she is not. I am really, really praying for you guys. Please let us know when you get any news.

Hugs,

I'm so sorry you have this extra stress. I'm having my nuchal test tomorrow, and I'm worried about extra intervention and false positives. There's been talk about false positives being more common in people who get PE, but I don't know if that's specifically positive for one particular thing (I thought I remembered it being related to neural tube defects), or if it's even true. It's nice that medicine has advanced enough to diagnose and treat babies in utero (for example, for spina bifida), but isn't it stressful to go through the screenings?!

Good luck with the amnio.

Bloodwork came back on Friday and puts me in the high-risk category, so it looks like I'll be having an amnio in a few weeks to make sure there's nothing wrong with the baby. I will only be 31 at delivery, but the docs said this new info puts me in the same risk category as a late 30s-40-year-old. Guess it was too much to expect for things to go smoothly with this pregnancy, eh? Darn it.

I hope that everything turns out okay. I know exactly what your husband is talking about though. I think we had the same thoughts when all my tests were coming back abnormal with Mikey. Good luck.
