    Default 1/600 Down Syndrome in blood test

    Hi,
    I had a 1:164 chance with my ds1. Or something similar.

    He is not DS. Harmony test did not exist when I had him.

    Someone told met I imagine a massive bucket. Put in 163 white balls and 1 red ball. Mix up. Now pull out a ball. What colour is it? Chances are everything will be fine.

    Good luck. It must be a tough wait for you.

    Please try not to work yourself up. I would consider your result to be pretty favourable - it's way less than 1% chance.

    My result was 1:110 when I was pregnant with my DS. I had a CVS and he did not have down syndrome.

    My chances were higher.. 1:250

    No Down syndrome. Harmony test wasn't available back then.

    I like what moon gazer said, chances are your bub won't have DS

    Like others have said you have a 0.0017 % chance of bub having it so that's excellent. We were 1:45 and had the harmony test. 10 days later we got the all clear

    My first son had a risk of approx 1:330. We were shocked and worried but were told by the hospital they didn't recommend testing for risks 1:200 or greater.

    DS2 risk was fine, in the thousands.

    This baby has a risk of 1:50 and we a are having an amnio in about 10 days.

    If I had a risk 1:200-1:300 I would do harmony testing. Over 1:300 I wouldn't test.

    Even with the risk of 1:50 I've gotten to the point where I've realised odds are pretty good that things are fine.
