    Default maternal fetal medicine appt

    Today I go to the specialist for the down syndrome testing. I am very nervous. We are also going to discuss my high blood pressure and the possibility of a cerclage at some point in the pregnancy. I feel like a pin cushion and wish I could just have a normal pregnancy. Still have so many appts and hurdles to get through. Very frustrated and depressed be it all.

    I am almost 13 weeks. I am so happy to have made it this far but I feel like I still have a long journey to go.

    Are you doing the Nuchal testing or the blood test?

    I did a blood test and then they did an ultrasound. The risk for down syndrome came back 1 in 2000 which is great but the trisomy 18 and 13 test came back with odds of 1 in 44. That is what I am worried about. We saw the baby and she/he was jumping around and looked normal to us. Heartbeat was 169. Praying even with the bad odds that she/he is healthy and we will be able to bring a baby home in July.

    1 in 44 is still pretty long odds. I bet the baby is just fine. Keep positive!
