    Default What was YOUR nuchal fold result/risk factor??

    I was wondering what the range of risk factor for the combined nuchal fold/blood test was ie. what is the greatest number (1 in XXXXXXXX) you could get? So I thought I'd ask you girls to post your risk range.
    Mine in my first pregnancy was 1 in 10,500. In this current pregnancy it is 1 in 20,400. Please share yours if you don't mind OR does anyone know how big the (XXXXXX) number can be?
    TIA

    I don't remember what my risk factor was for DS, but this time around I was a little more concerned because of my age but my results came back as 1:7820 so that was a definite relief!

    Mine was about 1:10000 for DD#1 and about 1:7500 for this baby. I'm pretty sure (but happy to be corrected) that a lot of it is to do with age - for instance I couldn't really score much better than I did given that I'm 38 this year, but if you're say 25 then you could get a much higher number.

    Mine with DS was 1:850 (I was 38) and he is perfectly fine. A friend's friend had one of 1:10 which freaked her out and she had an amnio and it was fine and she went on to have a perfect little boy.

    Mine is 1:18378 with this pg.. Don't know about my other 3 children because they didn't do the NT when I had them.

    Wow - I didn't realise how high the numbers could go.

    I was 1: 4500 for DD. Was 31 at the time. She came out healthy.

    A friend who is 35 has 1:750 with second bub, which is all to do with her age so it must dramatically lower the number with each year older.

    Hi,
    i'm not too sure what the XXXXXXX number is as my last bub was a 1:4 chance... given my age is only 21 that was scary. i had a CVS and it turned out my little girl had no chromosone abnormalities, however she did not make it due to another rare developmental problem. So i guess there is hope for those out there who get a very high risk result. Let's hope this bubba's NT results come back much better and all is good!

    With DS it was 1:2800 and I was only 27 so I thought that was low.

    With DD it was 1:7000 and my OB joked I was getting younger (I was 30)

    I was told they only get concerned when it is lower than 1:300, but everyone I spoke to had much higher numbers than mine so I was a tiny bit worried, as you do. I am blessed with two healthy kids.

    All the best

    Mine came in at 1/37 for DS - due to age (41) and a 4.2 nuchal fold measurement. At my age the risk factor was something like 1/45 anyway so it didn't alter it much. Can't remember what the one for all the other chromosonal stuff was but it was in the thousands - way better than the average for my age. I had an amnio and no abnormalities were found. Everything they check at around 22 weeks was normal and in fact growthwise he's 5 days ahead of schedule.

    Not sure how high it goes up to but anything under 1/300 is considered high risk and further investigations should be carried out.

    My background risk (based purely on age) for T21 was 1:576 and for T18/13 1:993

    My adjusted risk (based on age plus the blood tests and nuchal fold measurements) for T21 1:11504 and for T18/13 1:19845

    These are the notes on my ultrasound letter. I don't know what the highest numbers you can get are but the cut-off between high and low risk groups is 1:300.

    For my first DD my result was 1:12000 but for my little bub (girl) now, I was a high risk factor with 1:246 so I had an amnio and everything came back fine! Now I can't wait for the 20 week scan to see her and to see how she is coming along! I am 27.
