I'm trying not to freak out but after the perinatalogist visit today, I am worried. My first trimester bloodwork came back with a 1:14 chance of downs. I had the maternit21 test that same day and that came back negative -which was good. Today I had my first genetic counsel meeting and met with the perinatalogist and he did a sonogram, but said it was too early to say baby was in the clear and that I need to come back when I am 19 weeks. If that sonogram looks good than my chances for downs will go down. The doctor explained that my papp-a levels were extremely low-being at .2 this is why I am worried. I guess a lot of this can go wrong with the low pappa levels, which includes still birth. I'm less worried about downs and more worried about losing this baby. I'm getting my second trimester screening drawn next Wednesday all I can do is pray that those levels are better. Any words of encouragement for me?
