my odds of a downs baby are 1 in 113

my odds of a downs baby are 1 in 113, and i am so terribly scared. I dont know anything about these tests, and am going tomorrow for an ultrasound to have my Dr review immediately to see.

Can anyone make me feel more at ease about this?? Please. Thank you

Re: my odds of a downs baby are 1 in 113

Due to my age, my odds were 1/62 (without any tests). After the blood tests, they only raised to 1/73. I just had a level II ultrasound (at 17 weeks) and they couldn't find any abnormalities. I think the odds ratio that they give patients are terrible and don't tell you anything. You could be that 1 person or you have a 99% chance of having a normal baby. Go for the level 2ultrasound if you haven't had it already. I chose not to have the amnio and am praying for the best.
