    Default Help to not stress re: downs

    [QUOTE=Leeshy78;8133015]hi everyone. First post. Had a harmony blood test yesterday & to say I'm anxious for results is an understatement. Risk from NT came back 1:224. The only measurement I know is the nuchal fold is 1.93mm. This is my second child and I'm 37. I'm already 13 + 4 so the thought of something being wrong with bub is terrifying me as I don't know how we'd proceed. Too much reading on the net about outcomes is doing my head in! Guess I'm just venting! But do u all think it's gonna be ok? I know bub needs me not to worry

    I think under 2.5mm is ok. Its a risk assessment also based on maternal age. I think it'll be ok :-)

    From memory, a measurement less than 3.5 is within normal. Was a nasal bone present? I think you will be fine.

    99.5% of a healthy baby seems pretty good odds, good luck!
