My pregnancy this time (at a Level 2 ultrasound because I refuse all early testing) came back with an increased nuchal fold thickness. Everything else, however, looked fine. After meeting with maternal fetal medicine, a genetic counselor, and having a Level 3 ultrasound, the doctor firmly believed that it was a "false positive" reading. We did opt to have the Harmony blood test done since it is non-invasive, and though it took longer to come back than anticipated, my risk was dropped to 1 in 10,000. That was quite a change from the 1 in 24, based on nuchal fold thickness alone. We refused amnio because we felt the risks were too great, and the outcome would not change anything. Of course, no one knew about our pregnancy at that point (20 weeks) so there was no one to tell except me and hubby.

I hope that your results come back fine!
