The genetic counselor called me yesterday regarding the results of part 1 of my sequential screening. The down syndrome risk was 1/2500 and the Trisomy 18 risk was 1/10000. They both went down from my risk just based on my age. She said those were some great numbers and we will still have to do part 2 of the sequential screen which is a blood test at 16 weeks, however no other diagnostic testing was recommended. Yay! Now I am still thinking about getting the Harmony done...but I don't know... Just wanted to share and update you guys.

Congrats on the great numbers. Would you be doing the Harmony just for reassurance? If I had numbers like that I wouldn't get the Harmony done, but mainly because it is out of pocket and NOT covered for me. If its covered for you, why not
