Soft markers for down syndrome

The OB called to tell me that baby Daniel has one soft marker for down syndrome - a dilated kidney collector - is what I think he called it. The normal range is under 5mm, and his measures 5.1 to 5.5 mm.


I'm told this doubles my risk of down syndrome at my age. Ok, so I look it up, and my risk was 1/53. So 2/53 or about 1/26.


I tell my husband this and he blurts out:

Andy, Gerard, Sarah, Merina and Emma call me Mama,


but you can call me
