Response to I'd be curious for her

I've never heard of such a thing!!! When I had the 8844 beta at 5 weeks, my RE said "normal"

Even in googling this (which I have, to death), I came across ONE message board where the woman who had a DS daughter said her beta was very high early on and that she got a + BFP 8DPO and the way she wrote "the signs were all there" I really didn't put much stock in. It's not scientific data, nor could I find any to back up what she said.

I can't help but wonder why she would say this. I admit I still don't understand too much about the numbers and how they reach them. She said my MoM was 1.5 and the Papp-A was 0.52, Nuchal measurement 1.1 (which was fine) and that with my age...high risk.

I am going to keep focusing on thinking positive. I am thinking about what you said, my measurement was really good, the baby looks good, the nasal bone is there....saying my prayers to St Gerard because I am a prayer and I do believe in the power of prayer!
