Hello ladies,
I joined the birth board soon after finding out I was pregnant and definitely fell off the map after some stressful news. After my first tri screening, I was told my chances of baby having DS were 1 in 40 due to low Papp-A (it's a protein produced during pregnancy). Naturally, I freaked out. I was referred to maternal fetal medicine and had a new blood test done called Maternit21. It can identify whether the baby has DS with 99.1% accuracy. I did not want an amnio so was thrilled to have another option. My results thankfully came back negative and I was finally able to relax!

I will still see maternal fetal medicine and have monthly ultrasounds because the low Papp-A can be an indicator of issues with the placenta that can lead to all sorts of scary stuff i'd rather not think about. So they are monitoring baby to make sure that he is growing well (yes i said HE, I found out at my last ultrasound at 16 weeks that we are having another baby boy!)
Well so far, he is right on track and active and growing wonderfully. I am hopeful that all will be well and I'll have a healthy baby come late August/early Sept. (i might be induced at 39 weeks)

Here is baby's latest pic, taken at 16 weeks 3 days.


Hope all you ladies are well, i am still trying to catch up on posts!

WOW, you could be telling my story. I had one in 30 chance. I also had a new test out this month called Verifi. I am waiting on my results right now. I also did not want an amnio. I hope to hear tomorrow or Monday about the results. Glad your tests came back negative and welcome back to the board
