Ugh... so I just got the phone call from the genetic cousilor with my odds and she said they went from 1:70 for my age to 1:160. She said that it looks very encouraging and my results are very good but 1:160 seems way worse than what most of you girls have gotten. The thing that has me is that my PAPP-A was 1.6 and she said that usually under 1 is where the risk is and my HCG was 1.3 and that closer to 2 is where the risk is. So if my labs look really close to normal and my NT was w/in normal limits, shouldn't my risk be lower?
I do feel better than I did before these results since I was convinced it would be worse, but still think I will go forward with the amnio.
They also didn't do a ratio for T18/13. I asked why and I honestly can't remember what the reason was. I feel like I am just in such a daze these past few days, everything past my 1:160 ratio went in one ear and out the other.
