    Just thought I'd post I have had a low Papp-a result .33 and bigger hcg 2.1 and was given a higher risk for trisomy 21. We had the amnio and everything is fine but i find it interesting as this baby is also from IVF and I've actually been told from genetic counsellors this is common.

    Default Low PAPP A

    Icugal your story sounds very similar to mine! Low papp-a of .17 had growth scans as he was measuring small then waters broke at 35 weeks, 5 pound 3oz and 43cm long. Perfectly healthy just little!

    Kmvw good to hear your amnio went well, it's not nice is it? And our prelim results that they can tell you at 48 hours post came back inconclusive! So we had to wait the full 2 weeks to know our little guy was ok! And ours was ivf too. Good luck for the rest of your pregnancy xxx

    Not sure if this is the most current thread for low papp a but I'm 16 weeks pregnant and have papp a of 0.11, amnio was negative for chromosomal abnormalities so now crossing fingers that other factors don't come into play.

    Foxbane ...looks like a old thread but nothing wrong with restarting it. I know there were a few active ones 6+months ago.
    I am 35weeks.
    I had 1:160 t21 & 0.4 pappa A. And got negative result on non invasive test sent to US.
    Bub is very healthy weight at 34wks 6pound estimated at scan. Even with a bleed and haemorrhage she is above 50th percentile.
    I am sure you will have a healthy bub and that your doctors will monitor your placenta and cord closely. All the best.

    Thanks Sunshinebell, my chance of t21 was 1:2 so got the good side of that coin toss! Although only read bad things about such a low papp a. Specialist only estimates a 30% chance of having a problem so hopefully worse comes to worse we just have a delicate little girl.

    I had the same diagnosis. At my 20 week scan blood flow to placenta looked great and it looks like the low Papp a won't be an issue. Fingers crossed the same happens for you. My Ob said not to worry about the result as anything can change. Good luck
