Genetic Counselor Results

Just a quick update: The Genetic Counselor called this morning with my results. The risk of this baby having Trisomy 21 (Downs Syndrome), Trisomy 13, or Trisomy 18 is 1 in 10,000. She said "this is excellent and it doesn't get much better than that".

Based on my maternal age my risk was 1 in 952 (without doing blood work). So I agree with the counselor.... 1 in 10,000 is pretty great!

Stay tuned - My appointment with the high risk doctor is on Wednesday, and hopefully this will be the only time that I have to meet with her (no offense, Dr. Moore)!
