They do a test here (I can not remember what it is called) and he showed a high risk, so we did an ultrasound, and it was inconclusive. They were seeing the pockets, and such but it was 'iffy'. After that we did the high resolution where things looked 'okay', but they really couldn't say for sure. The only other option was an amnio and it wasn't worth the risk because it wouldn't have changed the outcome.

I've also had two friends that were told there babies would be downs babies (no amnio's) and both of those babies are now healthy normal adult/teens.
I'm not sure if was high resolution.. I am going to ask for the level 2 anatomy scan in a few weeks. I'm not beleivinf this scan until a few other tests are done if possible

Hopefully the same will be true for you in that you will have had needless worry and that dc will be born healthy.

ps with the 2 that followed I opted not to have early testing done.
