    Question 16 Weeks DS test 1:269

    Hi,I am 32 years of age.My Dr said I fall under a raised risk for DS baby.He looked at the soft markers and all looks fine.I looked at my ultrasound measures and I am concerned.On 15wks, BPD, AC & EFW measured 15w1d but FL measured 14w3d. At 16 wks, BPD,AC,FL & EFW on left thigh leg measured 16w1d but on the right leg BPD, AC, EFW measure 16w3d but FL 15w5d.Does anyone know if this seems to be a problem. Does it mean something? My Dr did not say anything regarding this, but after finding out that I have a raised risk for DS, I started looking into this.

    I'm not really sure what all of your numbers mean but for my 6th child, pregnant at 36, the doc measured my babies neck fat--that was it.

    RELAX!!! God never gives you more than you can handle!!
