I had my first trimester screening done yesterday and the results were good.

Hi Karen,

Your screening results are excellent. Congratulations! I'm not sure what the doctor meant by the placenta and growth of the baby. Perhaps other posters can clarify. Can you call the office and ask them if there is some reason they think this might be the case for you? Is this because of your age as I have never heard this before?

Cheers,
Heidi.

So glad things are looking good! Sorry, I have no idea what they were referring to either, I think I would definitely call them and ask some more questions.

Hi Karen,


I'm 1 week behind you (11 weeks and 4 days today) and was wondering what was involved in the 1st trimester screening?

Hi Karen,

OK, I have heard of this. Is there some reason that he thinks this might be applicable in your case? I mean, I have never heard that age is a factor in causing this. I think it is good that you are asking your dr. as he might just be mentioning it and that it really has nothing to do with your particular pregnancy.

Heidi.

You just give a blood sample and then get an ultrasound and they measure the fold behind the neck and they can give you the numbers and your chances for having a child with down's and the trisomy 18 and 13.

Heidi,


One of my blood test (the free beta hCG) came back I think he said 3 times higher.
