I had my first screen test last Monday. The NT measured normal, but on the thick side. In my clinic up to 1.7 is considered normal, anything thicker than that is considered abnormal. Our measurement was 1.6. They took blood and I told them that I'd probably want an amnio unless the results from the first screen were questionable, and then we'd want CVS.
I expected the results on Monday and my husband and I were out of town Thursday and Friday. When I got home on Saturday there were 3 messages from my genetic counsler trying to get in touch with me to give me the results. She did not say what they were. But the last message was from the clinic saying I had an appt. on Tuesday Oct. 27th. So I'm guessing that the results were not good and she went and made a CVS appt for me. I've heard stories of people who had positive results (which means bad results) from the first screen but went on to get good results from the CVS and have healthy normal children. Let's hope that I am one of them.
I am nervous but very hopeful. I conceived through IVF and had genetic testing done prior to transfer, and that was all normal.
