Unexpected good news. Unbelievable. Our downs odd have changed to 1/900! They were 1/342.
The trisomy odds are now 1/250,000 and neural tube defects are 1/45,000.
This means no amnio. The reliability rate for these statistics as part of the quad screen (which is different from just doing the nuchal translucency test at 12 weeks) is 94%. Amnios are only 98% accurate. That is good enough for me. Honestly though, I am a little sad not to get the yes or no from the amnio. But I can live with 1/900, and I was not living well with 1/342.
Plus, Space Monkey is alive (S felt the little bugger again last night) and probably really truly does not have downs syndrome.
I’m trying to let some good news sink in.
Big ultrasound where we find out boy or girl is TWO WEEKS from today.
