Quoting Onalee's Mummy:" Won't your blood show at high risk because of your age regardless of whether the baby is or isn't?"
Quoting Wanted: #2:" I think average risk at my age is 1:400. I have two friends who were pregnant at the same age and both got results of 1 in several thousand."
Quoting Onalee's Mummy:" <blockquote><b>Quoting regina_margot:</b>" when I was pregnant at age 35 i was told ... [snip!] ... BY A LOT with every year at our age by 40 it's AT LEAST 1 in 40"</blockquote> I thought over 40 it was about 1 in 12?"
Quoting Karen L.S.:" I ask my Ob about that too. She said there was a standard test for downs and a new test they run on women ... [snip!] ... women are 99% accurate. It's been out for less then a year . Maybe soon the new test will replace the ones they currently use."
Quoting regina_margot:" hey, sounds like you're talking about an amnio that's the only way to look at the fetal DNA, as you describe. it's not exactly new, but it is quite accurate."
Quoting Wanted: #2:" No, that is the test that I got done about 3 weeks ago. They are quiet new. They take the mother's ... [snip!] ... it. They can than see what chromosomes are present/missing. Names are MatneriT21, Panorama, Harmony.....you can google them."
Quoting Wanted: #2:" Thanks!!! I should get them sometime between tomorrow and Thursday. I can't sleep anymore. This wait is just too much."i'm sure it's really hard waiting.
