  • Re: High risk for Down Syndrome.

    I know exactly what you are going through.  I had my first trimester screening last Monday.  They told me the ultrasound looked fantastic.  Two days later I received a call from my doctor and she said my blood results weren't so great.  I have low Papp A and HCG levels (proteins for placenta)  That and due to the fact that I'm 38 they told me I have a 1 in 16 chance of having a baby with trisomy 13 or 18.  Needless to say, I was devastated when I got the news.  On Monday we go for genetic counseling and a CVS test.  I'm scared to death and can't imagine waiting on the results.  They tell me it takes 10 days after the test is performed to get results.  I just keep hoping the screening was wrong.  Good luck...I am thinking about you.
