I recommend ignoring the test label of "positive" or "negative" and deciding for yourself what good odds are.
I did the US and first blood work at 12 weeks then go Friday(week 15)
I have not got any results fro mthe blood.
Dr. said they need to do the 12 week and the 15 week, before they would give my results.
How about you?
It's a measurement of the back of the neck of the fetus.
Did you do amnio...I cant remember?
What was your NT scan and blood results if you did them?
Your Radiologist and OB together should be able to give you your calculated risk ratio; ie 1:92 (which is actually normal for women over 40).
For us, truly, our odds are a bit concerning. That is why they push the amnio. If your own result as better than normal, you should be a bit relieved.
So, be sure to get them properly calculated. They usually use 3 of the 4 percentage results of the early and late U/S and b/w. One bad result of the 4 separate tests is not conclusive.
