2nd Tri screening

Not sure if some of you will remember or not but when I had my 12 wk u/s the nuchal fold was measuring on the high end of normal so I had opted to have blood work done to check to see what my chances were that I would have a baby with a neural tube defect.

The first results came back that I had a .5 percent of having a baby with DS and and even smaller percent of having a different defect. Even though those results came back in essence good they still wanted to do the 2nd tri screening to further check things out.

I had blood drawn Tuesday and got the call from my doctor today......everything came back negative and normal!!!! Whew!!! I am so glad to have one less thing to worry about. I am still anxiously awaiting our 20 week scan on 11/29 to just verify that our son is healthy but I definitely feel like I can breathe easier now. :-)
