Hi everyone, this is my first thread on here and I wish it was coming from happier circumstances.
I am 13 weeks pregnant with my first and after a perfect ultrasound I recieved some very bad blood results from my first trimester screening, putting me at very high risk of having a baby with trisomy 21 (1:2 risk)
These are my results:
NT: 1.4mm (0.92 MoM)
free beta hCG: 1.25 MoM
PAPP-A: 0.07 MoM
Gestational age 12w4d
my blood test was done at 10 weeks 5 days
So basically it is my extremely low PAPP-A that is making my risk factor so high. Everything else is pretty normal, and a nasal bone was seen on the ultrasound. I
had the Verifi maternal blood test done today (rather than cvs), but won't get results back for 2 weeks!! It is meant to be quite accurate, but it very expensive.
I was just wondering if anyone else has had such low PAPP-A levels and what your outcomes were? I know if my baby is chromosomally normal, I am at greater risk of pre eclampsia, a small baby etc...
Thanks in advance, I am totally beside myself at the moment and don't know how I'll get through the next few weeks.
