    Default NT Scan & bloods, not good

    I just need a little hope here. My NT scan revealed a thick nuchal measurement and today I got the call about my blood results. There is a 1:2 risk of a chromosomal abnormality. I'm going to to have a CVS later today and i guess it takes about a week for the results. I am 39, my baby has a physical marker, and my bloods were not good. Its hard not to feel doomed by all of that and i am really dreading making "that" decision if it's the worst news. Please keep your fingers crossed for us.

    Hi Minirz,

    it sucks when you have that dreaded news. At my 12 week scan baby was diagnosed with fetal hydrops as well as 1:2 chance of DS. Because of the fetal hydrops the OB recommended an immediate termination. It was the most awful decision I have had to make.

    We always talked about what would happen if we had a baby diagnosed with Downs or any other issue and we always said we would terminate. But when the crunch comes to it...its not an easy decision.

    I hope that everything is okay but there are a lot of women here you have had medically required terminations or have gone on to have babies with DS so there will be a lot of support and advise for you if it comes to that.

    and I wish you all the best

    Hi Miniriz

    First of all huge hugs! It can be scary when all doesn't go as expected.

    About 12 weeks ago I had a 12 week scan and it wasn't a genetic abnormality they found but a neural tube defect called Encephaolcele. We were given a 0% chance of survival for our bub and had to make the decision to terminate.

    I just remember the days surrounding it and the tests all the doctors we saw and being absolutely terrified. I really hope you get some very good news after the CVS and can continue on, but I just wanted to say be kind to yourself over the next few days and know that there are some wonderfully supportive women on here who will be here to talk if you need it. I have everything crossed for you that your bub will be just fine

    I have had a CVS with DD1 so I understand the stress/worry you feel. 1 in 2 is high yes but just as high for bubs being healthy. Did they see any other markers or just the nuchal fold measurement and bloods ( was nasal bone seen?) As DD1 had thick measurement and bloods abnormal but she is 100% healthy. Your age also puts your risk up. I believe if I was older than 25 my risk would of been higher.

    Just want to send positive vibes. We had thick nuchal (3.6mm) but risk was 1:135. The wait is agonizing but I hope its good news.

Thanks for you support and big hugs to everyone who has had to go through what I'm about to. This is awful.
    So sorry to read your news. Just wanted to send you
