I am 28 years old and 12+5 weeks pregnant due on the 4th November 2013. I got an unexpected result from my NT scan the other day. I had an extremely high nucal fold measurement of 7mm and a 2 vessel cord diagnosed. The bloods were inconclusive because one was high and the other low. All up this gave me a high risk of 1:29 for trisomy 21, 1:44 for trisomy 18 and 1:42 for trisomy 13.
Everything else appeared normal, there was a nasal bone and everything else was marked as normal.
I have never had anything like this happen before, there was no family history at all so you can imagine how shocked I was. I am completely devastated and after seeing the obstetrician yesterday I feel things are even more bleak. She was not very optimistic and basically said with a reading so high it will be unlikely to be nothing at all.
I am booked for a CVS on Wednesday which will take 2 days for the main tests and then 2 weeks for the rest. It seems like such a long time to wait and worry. I have already lost 2kg since I found out Tuesday. Basically I am hoping to find others with similar readings and results to see what happened. I am just hoping there has been some people out there with better luck than the bleak view I was given? Please help, I am sending myself crazy with worry!
