I was just wondering if anybody knows anything about PAPP-A levels. Apparently my level is really low and my free-beta hcg was also pretty low and that was why my results came back as 1:<5 odds of my baby having trisomy 13 or 18. On the plus side the NT measurement was 1.7 which is great.
I've been having a hard time finding any good info on papp-a online but I have read that low papp-a levels can cause other problems later on in pregnancy and increases the cahnce of stillbirth.
If anybody knows anything about about this any info would be greatly appreciated...
I couldn't find a whole lot on it in my google searching, but it looks like it can put you at higher risk for low birth weight, preeclampsia, and preterm labor. I am guessing either way your doctors will probably monitor you more closely as a precaution. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and Monday comes around for you really soon. Hang in there and try not to worry too much.
