Thanks Stella,


I really need to know for certain.In a way, I wish I would have gone straight to Amnio, because I am the person thatt says well what if I am the 5500th person. YNWIM?


I have told the Dr to book me the consultation....my time frame is getting short.

Stella,


Thank you for providing that link to the website that goes over risk vs. benefit for prenatal diagnostic testing.

My baby's nuchal thickness at 12 weeks was 2.0, and that, combined with my blood test results put my risk of Down's at 1 in 1,032 (they said average for my age - 40 at the time - was 1:65) and risk of Trisomy at 1 in 2,361 (average was 1:119).

I opted not to have an amnio. My daughter was born 1/6 with no problems.

wow...I think I wouldn't have amnio with those results. I just came on for similar advice, but my results were only 1/600 on an average, and now they look really crummy next to yours! My friend Daphne is 38, got same results as you did and is not doing an amnio.

Thanks Iris,


I did end up going for the amnio...I think if I had one in a million, a still would have needed to know.
