My wife is 37 and we were 12 weeks 5 days when she had a nuchal fold test test performed last week (ultrasound and blood work). According to the ultrasound technician, the numbers came back in the "normal" range with what I thought was .12 but looking at the normal range it was probably 1.2. My wife received a call today saying that there was some abnormality in the blood work and that the probability was 1 in 219 of having some abnormality.
My question is this, is the ultrasound test, itself, a better indicator of a possible issue of having a child with an abnormality or is the blood work a better indicator? Is there one of the two that more emphasis is placed upon? If so, which one?
Thanks for the response. We ended up meeting with a genetic counselor last Thursday morning and after an hour-and-a-half of asking questions and becoming educated they gave my wife an ultrasound and we lost the baby. I guess we got that call and had that meeting for a reason.
Congratulations and best of luck to you as well!View Thread
