Scared

Hello all,

I recently had my results back for downs syndrome, and have tested very high risk, 1 in 12, and I'm so scared. This is my first and long awaited baby, and don't get me wrong, I will love this baby whatever, but I'm worried and scared, and feel guilty for feeling this way! We have had the NIPT test, but this takes 7-10 days to get the results, and on checking the postage tracking, it's not even at the lab yet! Trying to remain calm for bubs sake, but anxiety is ridiculous, is/has anyone else been through this?

Thank you

Hi Sez46 , I know how you feel, I had last week a "low risk" result but I am so scared as it is only 1 in 170 when last pregnancy my odd were 1 in 10000, At least you have the money for the NIPT and soon you will find out, i have read lots of comments here of mums with high risk turning into low risk after NIPT so try to relax (I know is difficult) and wait for results.

Shall I ask where did you have the NIPT done?

Hello Tribu,

Thank you for reply x I keep reading about other parents that had low results come back after the NIPT too, just have to keep hoping, but just feel so guilty for that too, I love this baby no matter what, but the health complications that can be part of downs syndrome are what scares me more than anything, everyone dreams of a healthy baby I guess xx

Hope you dont mind me asking, did you have the nuchal test aswell? Bubs wouldn't let them check at last scan! Yeah glad we had some money set aside, it was to buy the cot, sheets etc but at least we had it.

Bloods for NIPT were taken at my hospital then sent to a private lab xx

If they couldn't check NT it is probably less accurate so it might not be as high as you think.... just try be positive tho 11 chances that baby doesn't have downs.

Hope all turns out well.

Thank you xx

Will post on here when I finally get the results, apparently this comes back with 98% accuracy so we should know for definite either way

Hope your all well and healthy xx
