Everything's Good For Now

We got the full results back from the screen today. Our risks are in range for both babies - 1/1001 for DS and lower still for Trisomy 13 and 18. Now, how exactly the risks for DS are the same for both babies I haven't a clue, since the measurements were different - unless the blood results are very heavily weighted. We're of course relieved and delighted. I suspect this won't be the last time we have a scare so we may as well get used to it now, right?

  4. I say toss all your worries out the window, you're a fine specimen of a woman and you know those embryos are perfect. Worrying does more harm than good. Says the old woman.
    Love you, Ginny

  5. Whew and again whew... I couldn't see how you could possibly have a real problem given all the testing and preparation of both parents and both embryos but where there's a worry to be found, one will find it. We now know that Baby B has my small snub nose (poor boy)!
