Oh ange. My heart is going out to you. Has your ob discussed using clexane as this has been shown to help support small babies due to placenta issues. My ob is high risk and discussed these things with me. I have no advise with regards to the amino as I've never had to face that thus far. A lot for you to discuss and consider. I hope your next app with the specialist brings some answers and hope x

Big hugs Ange. I can only imagine what you are going through right now. I'm really glad that you are booked into a specialist though. Its sounds like your doctors only want whats best for you and the baby.
All of the stories I have read about low PAPP-A, have more often than not been due to placenta issues. Thats what the doc thinks about mine. Annoying how much it can alter your risk factor though hey.
Hope you can hang in there and not worry too much until your next appointment. You know where we all are if you need to chat xoxo

Big Hugs to you Ange. I have been following your story from the beginning and this is just too much.
I was told that Papp-A can be really low with Placenta Issues. Your Bhcg looks normal, I don't know your NT measurements, but they are 80% of the screening for Trisomies. Bloods only add 10% to the total risk and can get confusing when there are issues with the placenta.
I am glad you get to see a specialist so soon and hope he has some reassuring news for you.
Will be thinking of you .

I dont have the gestational sac issues but, like you, I have got a very low PAPP-A level and that made my tri 21 risk factor high. I can't tell you how my story turns out though because I am only 14 weeks pregnant myself (Im in your August group). I noticed your post and I wanted to find out how you are going. Your other values look fine so it's usually a matter of dopplers for blood flow in placenta and regular scans for size of baby. There are women who have not ended up with IUGR with low PAPP-A levels. My thoughts are with you and I hope you get some good help and answers from the Sydney specialist.
