    Thank you
    I did just call the hospital and they don't do the fish results on CVS, It's only been two days and it's eating me up! I know it looks bad, but the only way I seem to cope is by hearing some positive outcomes, as I really do feel for my age my result is not looking good. A very first (and unplanned) pregnancy this is hard to deal with. Thanks everyone for you're comments and well wishes

    I think it's perfectly normal for you to ask questions and be worried. My NT odds were tiny and we would not have terminated had he had a trisomy but we wanted to know so we could be prepared.

    The fold test and visable nasal bone is very promising, it sounds like the low PAPP has really affected the ratios.

    My baby is at high risk of trisomy 18, picked up at the same scan/blood test due to low hormone levels. Initially I was 1 in 16 than it was revised as my dr did not give my weight to 1 in 120 then after another ultra sound and seeing an open palm I was told 1 in 1000 but they really could not say for sure.
    Personally I wish I had never have had the test done as it has caused me nothing but stress .Appart from many ultra sounds (which have all been clear of any markers) I chose not to have any further testing, so belive me I know how stressed out you must be feeling right now waiting for your results, as I have been waiting to find out since the test. I am 38 weeks now so I am really starting worried as it won't be long now. I guess time will tell and I will have to deal with whatever happens. Hang in there and try not to let it stress you out too much (easy to say as I have ended up having Counciling to help me deal with things). I hope your results are that everything is ok. XxoO

    Can I ask if you don't mind.. Were you told of any reasons to be concerned before you're result? Soft markers or low Papp a etc?

    Thank you

    Hi again,

    I didn't have a pre-natal dx with my girl. I had one soft marker (a tiny eco genie focus on the heart) at my 20-week ultrasound, which my Dr dismissed as probably nothing, and not worth doing any further testing, given my 12-week bloods and NT were relatively low risk, I think about 1 in 900. So I didn't do any more investigation, then she was born with her little surprise.

    @ruby28, I don't have any advice, just sending you hugs. I appreciate that this is very stressful for you.
    Yes that's fine. I understand that they can be severely ill with heart problems etc I wasn't trying to be negative at all.

    My brother has Down syndrome. He's had 4 major heart surgeries.

    It's great for medical purposes sure. But I stand by my statement. There is a great FB page called parkers place. You can plan, etc

    Sorry you are going through this Ruby28, the wait is very hard. Even the 24 hours I waited for my FISH results was awful. I liked hearing positive stories too while waiting. I had a 1:7 risk of DS from my NT, partly from low PAPP a. Chromosomes were fine. Most likely mine was from a poor functioning placenta and DS was born early at 31 weeks with IUGR. Having read about low PAPP-A a lot, many people go on to have normal pregnancies if the chromosomes are normal, just with more growth scans as the main other risk is IUGR. I knew girl who had a 1:2 risk and all was fine. Hope your results come quickly and are good.

    I have since been to my GP for a chat and to see all my numbers,
    It turns out my HCG was really high as well ( initially didn't seem to concerned about that as they didn't even mention it) And since I had to repeat my scan as I was one day to early for them to accept the neck fold measurement ( a week later) that increased to 1.5. Now I really don't know what to make of it all.

    HCG - 2.96
    Papp-A - .26
    Neck - 1.5mm

    Is anyone familiar with these figures at all?

    Thank you

    I don't know much about the HCG or Papp-A but the neck measurement is completely normal .

    Yes mine were all similar to yours and I have a 2 week old perfectly healthy girl. No chromosomal abnormalities and not even IUGR despite papp-A of 0.29. I had placenta prévia but I think that was unrelated.
    Hang in there Hun, I am proof that bad stats can turn out to be nothing xx
