1st trimester screening results

Just thought I'd update you with the exact numbers from the first trimester screening.

Downs syndrome: 1/1699 chance of baby having downs
Trisomy 18/13: 1/9281

That is much better than the usual statistics for my age range - (1/300) for downs, so the doc says this is a normal result and very good! The trisomy 18/13 is another chromosome problem they test for, but don't know anything about it other than that.

Like I said, we aren't doing any more tests like this - no amnio, no nothing, because nothing would prevent us from having the baby anyway. So, yay, this is a little load off our minds.
