With my first son, the trisomy 21 (downs) come back at the increased risk of 1:260. The other 2 more severe trisomy 18 & 13 were fine. I was worried the entire pregnancy but didn't want to risk the amino test and risk a miscarriage. I figured Down syndrome was not that bad should it turn out that way anyway. Luckily, our son was born perfectly normal and is now classed as 'advanced' for his age. Now, pregnacy 2 and my results for the scan have come back not good again. This time, trisomy 21 & 18 were sky high and in the thousands which is good. But for trisomy 13, which is the worst one, I have an increased risk at 1:160. After doing research, it seems trisomy 13 babies are lucky to survive past 12 months :-( My doctor has suggested a amnio test but I am scared of the outcome. I am worried about a miscarriage and scared that it may confirm the disease. I don't know if I would continue the pregnancy in it was confirmed. It is a terrible disease and not a nice life for the baby. But, I don't know if I could terminate either. I am very confused right now. Has anyone had an increased risk for trisomy 13? I have a friend who went through this as well. She had the amnio and all was good. Seeing as everything was fine with my son, should I not worry this time? How accurate are those nucal tests? Very concerned pregnant woman here, any advise would be nice. Thanks.
