    Mine was 1:119 due to NT measurement which was 3.8mm. I'm 29yo. Had CVS and all came back fine. Very traumatic experience I must say!

    Hi,

    I'm nearly 29 and with measurement and bloods, mine came back as 1/3290. I measured only slightly higher at my scan but the measurement decreased a little every time. At 10w it measured 3.2mm, at 12w it measured 2.9mm and I can't remember the measurement at 20w but it had decreased again. My sonographer said it was still a little high but nothing to worry about and he wrote 'Normal' on the letter to my GP. It really freaked me out because I had nothing like this happen with my other 2 pregnancies. He is actually measuring about 4 days bigger than he should be but I still worry........

    I think my age would put the risk at about 1/370 but after the scan I was 1/2500.

    So very happy.

    I'm 21, and mine are (based on age, bloods and NT measurement):
    T21 - 1:21000
    T13/18 - 1:39000

    My husband and I decided that we wouldn't have one - didn't think it warranted the stress that a high risk or false result can cause. We wouldn't have changed anything even if it did come back as high risk and I certainly wouldn't have had an amnio due to the risks. I think this scan is a personal choice.

    Alimumma, I agree, definately personal choice. I also wouldn't have changed anything, but I do believe knowledge is power, which is the reason we got our scan done.

    I'm 20 and my downs risk was 1:24000 and the other chromosome one was 1:45000 based on blood test, age and nuchal measurements. They also said my maternal age is 15

    My downs risk was 1: 24500 and T13 (I think???) was around 1:30000.

    I thought they were very small risks and maybe the sonographer did the measurements wrong but didn't let it get to me. I'm glad this thread has come up because it has now put my worries to rest.

    I am nearly 37 so my age risk factor starts out a lot lower - but after the combined assessment of 1.6mm nuchal lucency and bloods - they came back 1/3579 - so very happy and relieved

    I was told my range being 31 now and 32 when bub is born would be 1:700 just based on age alone. Our scan came in low risk 1:600. I don't know how people get higher but wouldn't worry too much as high risk falls between 1:300

    Hi,

    This is my first pg and I'm now 17 weeks. For my age alone was 1:857 which I thought was high considering I'm 27. With the measurement alone it was 1;259 and combined with bloods it went to 1:368. Not enough over the 1:300 for DH and I so we had an amnio. No down's tho...I would have worried throughout the whole pg if we hadn't had the test.
    Wow to those with super low risks I never knew you could get those sort of numbers, that's great!!!!

    I'm one of the ones with a scary result! The nuchal fold was right in the middle of the allowable range but my bloods returned a way out result, plus I was 35 at the time. 1:41 - had a CVS, all good there, and now have a gorgeous perfect healthy baby girl.

    Based on my age (34), my risk was 1:333, and after screening & bloods went down to 1: 2,940 (which my obs said was equivalent to an 18-20 y.o.). I'm amazed to see how high some people's numbers are! I didn't even realise they could go that high, I thought mine was great hehe.

    My Trisomy 18 was 1:44,500 which we were also very happy with.

    Hi everyone,

    there was NO other thread with the other chromosome problems they test for with the NT.

    I have just recently recieved the most horrible phone call with our blood results... downs was ok 1:658 but the risk for trisomy 18 was 1:171 which is not good at all, we are back to the hospital on monday to speak more with Dr and hopefully book an amnio ASAP.

    This will be my 3rd bub but hubbys first, it was our first attempt at IVF. The results were not good for my age...

    Hugs to you all i sure as know in my heart bub WILL be ok.

    Kathryne, oh hun I know how scary it is. Just try to remember that the NT test is not a diagnotistic test, it is simply a tool for identifying a set of factors that may mean further testing is warranted...and a result of 1 in 171 means that there's still a 170 chance out of 171 that everything's ok. Ask to see a genetic cousellor as they will help you to make sense of the whole process. Good luck!

    it is such a scary worrying time. we are back at the DRs tomorrow, where hopefully we will get more information, and then go from there with our decision. Will update when i know more.

    Hi, I had no idea like a lot of the others that the numbers can come in so low risk.
    I am going to be 41 when baby arrives and after three early MC while trying for this one had'nt really thought about what my risk might be, I was 38 when we started trying again.
    Well as my scan approached I started to get stressed, risk for my age was 1:100 but after my combined results my indiviual risk was 1:2890 which I am very happy about!!!! With my last 2 babies at 35 and 36 my risk was 1:1450 so this one is twice as good.
