Positive AFP results for Downs
I received the call today that my second trimester AFP screening results came back 1 in 87 for downs syndrome. I am going to have the amniocentesis done but i am scared out my mind and for my baby. Are these numbers high?

Hi, any threat to our unborn baby is a shock and you're bound to be scared. 1 in 87 doesn't seem so bad to me as my baby was a 1 in 2. Did your scan show any soft markers? Absent nasal bone, short femur length, or nuchal fold measuring high? I know how you're feeling and please please listen when I tell you that whatever the result of your amnio, it will be ok. I know you don't believe that and you wish it wasn't happening, but there is a good chance everything is fine with your baby. When is your amnio booked for? Please let me know how you get on, I wish you well x
