... Hi, i'm new to this, but i need to find out what the possible chances are that our baby might develop down syndrome.

... s and the amnio. This time, the Dr. measured the nuchal fold thickness and length of the bones in arms and legs. He said that the results were well within the norm. In fact, the bones are a little longer than the average which, he said, could mean that we'll have a tall baby. ... (7 replies)
... Hi, The amnio is pretty much 100% accurate. All I can say is as the parent of a 9-year-old with DS, I know that it's not easy raising her, but neither is raising my other kid, and it's not even close to as hard as I feared it would be. I laugh at what I feared back then. I would never ever give her up. (1 replies)

... I was 34 when we conceived, and I think my age related risk was 1:400 or something like that. The AFP gave 1:137 (or was it the triple screen)? She had a short femur in utero at the 20 week ultrasound, and as the pregnancy went on, her growth rate slowed down, and I measured for low fluid. However, her nuchal fold was normal, nothing wrong with her heart, and we saw her... (8 replies)

... I remember reading some posts about this on the pregancy board not to long ago. It was woman talking about getting false test results for DS and all the stress they were going through. Try and do a search on that board. ... (7 replies)
... Dear Concerned- Wait until your ultrasound before you start worrying- Triple Screen tests have a known history of coming up with "false positive" results. I know from experience, that this is the case- in fact I think they are only about 85% effective. I had to wait for an amniocentisis before they would rule it out for sure. (That is the only positive way of knowing,... (4 replies)
... I'm assuming you are comparing your last menstrual period to the measurement of the baby on ultrasound. At about 12 weeks there is a standard deviation, or ultrasound measurement error of plus or minus 3 days. So your baby may not really be big. Ultrasound is not exact so expect some measurement error. ... (2 replies)

... We were informed that our 20 week ultrasound showed two soft markers of DS; thickness in the neck and a calcium spot on the heart. We had another ultrasound at a specialized clinic and they found two more soft markers; enlarged opening of one kidney and a "spot" on the brain. We decided to have an amniocentisis and the FISH results have indicated that the five chromnosomes... (7 replies)
