More stats

Just got the updated statistics back from the results of the sequential screen (they were quick - less than 2 business days!!). These get added to the results of the first trimester screening to give a new, combined result:

Downs - was 1/1261, now 1/1957

Trisomy 18/13 - was 1/1742, now 1/17152

Spina Bifida - Normal, less than 1/100000

Loving these numbers, not bad for a 41 year old! In fact, she said I was testing like a 20 year old. Now, if the rest of my body was like a 20 year old, that would really be something!!!

So, unless the genetic ultrasound shows something unusual, I'm skipping the amnio!

  1. Great news! You made me smile with the "if the rest of my body was like a 20 year old" comment! Ah, but for the days gone by. I hear you. This is fantastic and I don't blame you for avoiding the risks of amnio since all the numbers look really, really good. Just another nice birthday present. :)
