My results were negative, but barely for T13/18 so I'm concerned.


Every time I see results the women have a much lower risk for DS then T13/18. Well my results reduced my risk of DS from 1/42 to 1/781 but they only reduced my risk for T13/18 from 1/88 to 1/267. I believe 250 is the cut off for a positive result.


I'm really confused why my results are so different than others that usually have the DS risk so much higher.


My nuchal measurement was 1.3

Thank you so much for the links. I should of probably mentioned that much of my fear stems from the fact we have lost two

Dear Kathy,


With my first son, I decided to do an IPS, so they did the NF measure (mine was 1.3 as well which is really good btw!) and my risk for DS went from 1/75 age alone to 1/750 after the IPS.
