So last week I had my NT scan and blood work done. After the scan the Peri comes in and says everything looks good and then asks about my drugs I am on and MTHFR. She questions why I am on Lovenox and says they don't treat it with that just folic acid. She suggested I make a genetic counseling appointment. So I made the appointment and then talked to my husband about it and said I don't want to stop my drugs I am on and I trust my DR so he said why waste a co-pay and just cancel the appointment.
I have my last comfort ultrasound Thursday with my DR so I am going to run all this by him.

Well a couple minutes ago my phone rings and its the hospital with my blood results.
1/10,000 Downs
1/4500 Trisimy

Then she said something did come back positive. A hormone was low so they want me to have the normal 20 week scan and then a 26 week scan to check on baby's growth. I asked her what the hormone was and what it means she told me its Free Beta HCG (I looked this up and that is the name of the NT testing for everything so I have no name). Then she said baby's with this can have growth slow down and may need to be taken early so I will have to be watched close. I am such a research person I wanna know what its called so I can get informed. Any of you know what this hormone is called???


But anyway all this has me so confused, do I really need Lovenox? Do I need genetic counseling? I was hoping to have a easy pregnancy with all I have been through but its looking like I am going to have to work hard for this baby since its already got my back messed up, and giving me digestive issues and now I am going to have this growth thing to worry me.

I'm so sorry your having to deal with this. IMO I would see the genetic counselor just because they can probably give you more piece of mind as well as inform you of things that the doctor can't/won't.

Im trying not to worry but in reading all I see is high Still birth rate, Poor pregnancy outcome, risk of premature birth, and other things.

I see my OB Thursday and going to talk to him to see if he wants me to go do counsling and how he is going to monitor this.
This marker could turn into nothing so I am trying to think about that.

I was going to be a genetic counselor, until I realized I have too strong of an opinion

The counselor is there for you, to give you all of the information, answer all of your questions (not scare you like the internet might), and to help you make an informed decision. I would strongly consider the counseling, I did it with DD, because we had a couple of things in our family I was concerned about, she was great, answered everything, really made us feel at ease!

I wish you weren't having to deal with this, hope it turns out to be nothing! GL!

I don't know anything about what is going on with you, I just wanted to give you hugs. (((hugs)))

We did go and see a genetic counselor when we went through the amino process and she was so helpful. She helped us make the decisions on what tests we wanted to do and explained all of our options to us. She was a huge advocate for our wants and needs.

I don't have any info on it for you but just wanted to say I hope you get some answers soon! Maybe you could call back and talk with the dr about what hormone it really is.
