1/100 — The Bump
Pregnant after IF

1/100

My just OB called with results of the quad screen and I have a 1/100 chance of having downs but its probably worse because of the EIF on the heart. So she said I need to decide about the amnio, she said she is comfortable doing it. She said if we don't do it we will be stressed the whole pg waiting to know whether LO has downs. She said that this pg has already been extremely stressful and will I be able to deal with the additional stress of not knowing. She also of course said another reason to do the test is whether we would medically abort. I'm leaning towards doing the Amnio because I feel like I will be badgered into it in the end and maybe its best to know. And if I do m/c then this pg wasn't meant to be.

Re: 1/100

  • I am sorry you are going through this. Any word yet on the fetal DNA sampling results? In the absence of those results, I'd go for the amnio, it is just super annoying that you haven't been able to get valid results from the fetal DNA sampling since it

    IUIs #1-3 (1x unmedicated, 2x Clomid) = 2 BFNs, 1 m/c at 7w3d
    IUIs #4-6 (injects) = 3 BFNs
    IVF #1 = BFN
    FET #1 = BFN
    FET #2 = BFN
    IVF #2 = BFP, b/g twins lost at 20w due to partial abruption/PPROM
    IVF #3 = c/p 5w2d
    Long-shot Clomid/Prednisone cycle before next IVF = BFP, our beautiful, healthy girl born 6/26/13!

  • I am so sorry you're going through all of this. I think I'd also opt for the amnio for peace of mind and because with Trisomy 21 often come heart issues, so if you were aware of that in advance then doctors could be prepared, too.
