The genetic counselor from Maternal Fetal Medicine called today with our results from our first trimester screen. They combine the measurements from our ultrasound with blood work taken from me.
Let the record show that this is the fifth time I've had my blood drawn for this pregnancy and I'm only 11 weeks along. E is proud of me each time when I don't cry.
1 in 10,000 for Down syndrome.
1 in 2,000 something for Trisomy 13 and 18 combined.
These are really great results considering we had a recurrence risk of 1 in 120 before the test, even though we aren't carriers, just because it happened with V.
I still really hate statistics because last time we were the 1.
They stab me again in 4 weeks to check for gestational diabetes nice and early.
