I got my screening results back here is what it says
Screening result: negative
DS risk: 1 in 5500 (at term)
risk of NTD: 1 in 1900
Should I still have amnio?? what are your thoughts??
Hello! Those look like really great results. I am just about to post about my upcoming NT scan...will do in a separate post.
Those are excellent odds!
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.
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.
I did end up going for the amnio...I think if I had one in a million, a still would have needed to know.
