I had blood drawn to see if there was a chance for DS because of my age. The results came back positive that 1 of 84 births. I was told that wasn't to bad. But my HCG levels are high. Is this something I should worry about? The ultrasounds shows a healthy baby with normal measurements.
My OB says the High HCG levels could mean retardation. Is that true?
I have actually heard that as well, when I was researching what low HCGlevels indicated...... Are you planning on having an amnio? What weeek are you in? OH - and how old are you? And what was your HCG level?
