I guess it probably isn't too surprising given that I am 40, but we did get a positive hit on our quad screen last week for Downs. The nurse reported a 1:71 chance. Which given the conditions and the stats (I am a scientist, so I delve into stats), we aren't too worried right now. As I understand it, it is a 1:71 chance for any woman with the same outcome on the quad as me.
Still the news comes with a referral to the high risk doctor, who according to my coworker, is a real joy of a guy with absolutely no bedside manner. At least I know this going in so I don't have high expectations!
We have our ultrasound on Friday, so hoping that comes out well!
