Hi! I am new to this board but wanted to say I will be an April mommy! I am due April 18, 2010 with my third son, however, we will be having a scheduled c section on April 12.
This pregnancy has been totally different so far. I had the quad screen done at 16 weeks which came back high risk for Down Syndrome. I am 28...and will be 29 April 25. My odds are 1/199. We have had two level two ultrasounds both of which showed no markers. I know that there is only a 50% accuracy rate with ultrasounds though. I am still a nervous wreck. I am trying to look at every angle of every ultrasound image trying to see if I can see anything amiss...my husband thinks I'm crazy. I am a natural worrier. Always have been. We declined the amnio because we felt that we didn't want to risk a miscarriage. We will have a 3D ultrasound next Monday and I am hoping that if there was anything wrong that we would be able to tell by this???!! I don't know. I guess it's just wishful thinking. I know that I probably won't feel completely reassured until he is born and I am holding him..
I've been somewhat hopeful reading a lot of your false positive stories on this board. Right now, I am on bed rest due to high blood pressure so basically all I do is scour the internet...which probably isn't such a good thing.
