Hi , had my 12 week nuchal scan came back fine but high hgc levels blood test have put me in high risk for DS 1 in 89 ,how likely will my baby have DS?
1 in 89 likelihood?: If a woman is told she has a 1 in 89 chance of have a Down syndrome baby, that means if she gives birth to 89 children, one will have Down syndrome. What nobody can tell is whether the Down syndrome baby will be the first baby, the 89th baby, or one in between. Here in the 21st century, there is new, very accurate, technology like Harmony which tests the mother's blood to look for the baby's DNA. ...Read more
13week us says posterior placenta low lying nuchal thickness 1.5mm dr. Advised downsyn screen blood test. Very afraid. May my baby have any disorder?
Nuchal thickness: Everyone gets offered the quad test screening for down's, trisomy 18 and spina bifida. Its actually a very good test. An increased nuchal thickness is associated with increase risk of Down's syndrome, but usually other things are seen with it. A cell free DNA test may be a good one to check. ...Read more
Nuchal translucency measured 2mm and blood work came back very low risk of trisomy 21 and 18(less than 1/10000). Do i need any other testing done?
28 years old, nuchal translucency with blood showed trisomy 18 risk 1:1300. Dr said it's fine, but i'm worried. Does this seem high?
Trisomy 18 risk: A result of 1:1300 indicates that in 1300 pregnancies with the exact same test results, only one of them will result in a child with trisomy 18. This is approximately a 0.08% chance of trisomy 18. This result gives a higher chance than the best risk group (less than 1:10, 000) but still reflects a low likelihood of trisomy 18. ...Read more
Nuchal Translucency : Nuchal Translucency is a screening test to determine risk of chromosome abnormalities in a fetus. When the NT is greater than 3.5 mm, there is a 1 in 5 chance of a chromosome abnormality such as Turner or Down syndrome, or Trisomy 18. Additional tests should be ordered by an OB or genetic counselor for confirmation. A mother may decide to continue or end of the pregnancy based on the information. ...Read more
I'm 11w3d pregnant, I refused to have nuchal translucency test. If baby had down I would keep it anyway. My ob/gyn was so perplexed. Am I wrong?
No: Such testing is really about how much you want to know. Occasionally, the results of such testing can have management implications, usually not. As a rule, I avoid doing testing if I don't know what I'm going to do with the results. Sounds to me like you're one step ahead regarding the non-significance of the results. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Need test results: 1st trimester screening is not done simply by ultrasound. The sonogram is done along with blood work. The results are mathmatically calculated to give you a risk assessment for down syndrome. One should not try to interpret the sonogram without knowing the overall result. ...Read more

See below: The short answer is yes, it is within normal. However, it is a bit more complicated than that. The nt is one factor in assessing the risk of having a chromosomal abnormality. If you are 22 years old with an nt of 2 mm, you would get a different risk than a 45 yr old with an nt of 2 mm. There are other factors as well and the data is combined with blood work. ...Read more
