    It certainly is a lot to take in and there is so much running through your mind. I had a 1:24 chance and all I could keep hearing was my dr say I have a high risk pregnancy.
    I had an amnio and everything ended up being fine.
    We chose not to tell anyone at the time as I couldn't handle other peoples responses. It was hard enough dealing with my own.
    All I can offer and I know it isnt much, but take one day at a time. I spent the first few days after the scan just crying. Big hugs to you. Im happy to answer any questions you may have.

    Thanks guys. Iv told mum and dad and my close friends. So at least I can cry on someone if i need it. I googled even tho I shouldn't of, I read a lot of stories with happy outcomes, I'm praying that I have a happy outcome. If I do then maybe someone up there was listening.

    I had a 1:20 risk of Down's with my son due to nuchal fold thickness. I too was very frightened and upset. The amnio wasn't nearly as scary as I expected - in fact it was a very simple, painless procedure. The waiting for the test results was awful - I cried all the time and kept telling myself that something was wrong. When the results came back I found out that there was nothing at all wrong with my baby. He's now a happy, healthy two year old. When he was born he had the chubbiest little neck - just rolls and rolls of fat! I know how hard it is not to panic yet, but there is still a good chance that your baby is fine. I have read hundreds of stories on here just like mine. Take it one step at a time and don't give up hope until you have the full story. See your doctor, have the amnio and wait it out. When you know more you can make a fully informed decision. I'm crossing my fingers that it all turns out well for you.

    Statistics is only that, numbers. It makes you wonder why we do these screening tests at all really? Trisomy 13 and 18 are the ones to be concerned about as they are the (usually) lethal trisomies which is usually the reason they recommend an amnio/cvs . At least with Down syndrome you have a healthy child who can lead a wonderful life.
