Oh no Ange I'm so sorry! I wonder how accurate these tests are. I have heard stories of people being told there are probs and having a healthy baby at the end dsepite fearing the worst.
I know it's rare but it can happen.
You poor thing Now you have weeks of worrying ahead of you - so unfair

Thank you all who have been so supportive. I appreicate the kind words. It sometimes somuch easier talking to you all rather than friends, coz some of you know exactly what imgoing through and the others just being pregnant can sympathise. Its hard when friends/family don;t really understand. My best friend though has been wonderful and really supportiveso i thank God for her.
My test results are as follows: 1:3 of Downs (trisomy 21)
1:55 of Trisomy18
1:108 of Trisomy13
Although the Downs ratio is extremely risky, my Dr believes it is inaccurate. My PAPP-A result was 0.07 (1.0 is what they like it to be around) and my
Free B HCG was 1.2 so pretty normal (the also like it to be around 1.0)
Due to PAPP-A being EXTREMELY low Dr is very concerned that I will deliver as early as 24 weeks. He is hesitant to do the Amnio because of all the problems I have had with the Gestational sac. He is extremely worried that my riskof misscarriage would be a lot higher than the risk of the baby having something wrong with it. He said he can't do the amnio and has referred me to a specialist in Sydney who will be able to deal with this sticky situation with more accuracy. I have an appt for Thursday this week,so I will know more then.
I'm not feeling bad about the results, I have a peace over me about it. I would like the amnio though, but the last thingi want to hear is that ive miscarried a healthy baby. Darn placenta....my Dr thinks that is where all the issues are arrising from. I did have placental problems with my 1st pregnancy too, but not this bad. I did deliver at 38 weeks and she was very little too but healthy. I also got pre eclampsia with that pregnancy.
If anyone reading this has had any things similar, I would love to hear from you.
Thanks to all of you again for your wonderful support.

Wow that's a lot for you to take in. Sounds like your doctor is being proactive and really thinking about what is best for bub. Sounds like if it's the placenta raising your risk then bub may be fine. It must be hard not knowing, hopefully the next doctor you see will be able to make some plans with you for the rest of the pregnancy. Hoping for the best for both of you xx
