First trimester screening - RESULTS

Hello All.

I just got some fantastic news and I had to share it.  Based on "advanced" maternal age my chance of having a baby with down syndrome is 1 in 287.  Today I got the results of my first trimester screening and they said based on the results my new risk factor for DS is 1 in 5100 and for trisomy 18 it is 1 in 10000!!  

Wow, what a relief.  I was so scard of getting negative results, at first I had decided not to even do the test.  Two days later I changed my mind and called the doc to schedule me in.  Now I'm so glad I did.  And Exhale :) !!!! YAYAY
