high risk for DS
Tue, 04-24-2012 - 6:50pm
My blood test results showed a 1:110 risk for DS. My OB recommended I see a high risk OB. I have an appt tomorrow at 3. I know there are risks of false "positives" but, it still makes me anxious. Keep me in your thoughts! Hopefully it will just be a bonus early gender ultrasound;)

You have to look at it this way.... You probably will be one of the 109 who have a healthy baby. The odds are still in your favor. I think they give us numbers to scare us.

Praying for you Amanda! I hope they're able to tell the gender tomorrow:)

Hopefully all goes well. At my drs office they wan to see worse than 1:100 so you'd have been considered as testing negative here. Good luck!

You're in my prayers. I agree with L - it's great that you're staying positive and keeping your chin up. That makes such a big difference, I think!

Good luck! My sister also had a "false positive" high risk for Downs assessment and my niece is perfect. The odds are still very much in your favor. KUP.

Prayers for you, Amanda. I agree with everyone else; less than 1% risk is pretty good. :)
