My friend had a white spot on the bowel and was given a high chance for downs - she was 37. Baby is a healthy (albeit, pain-in-the-a**) 14 month old. She had the worst pregnancy ever between the testing and the border-line GD.
Another friend, also over 35, had a very high NT measurement and non-reassuring results on her 1st trimester blood results. They were told the results of the CVS test on Christmas Eve (how's that for bedside manner?) - 1:12 chance of chromosomal abnormality. Spent the next two trimesters worried to death only to have a healthy baby boy 5 days before my own son was born. Woops!
What really freaks me out are the opposite stories - not a personal friend, a member of another site I frequent. Normal NT results. Normal first trimester blood screening. Normal quad results. 21 years old. Delivers a daughter that has down syndrome. Never saw any markers on any of her multiple ultrasounds.
Or the one about the lady that decided to deliver her baby that tested postive for down syndrome only to find that the placenta was affected but the baby was totally healthy!
I agree, type it out. Talk to all of us as we are in very similar boats. My worry of the day...in another thread.
