Two bits of very good news!

I got the blood test portion of our NT screening back today and they were excellent!

Prior to testing, my risk for having a baby with Down’s was 1/307. After the scan, its is only now 1/6000.

For Trisomy 13 & 18 (which is often fatal for the baby) my risk prior to testing was 1/524, but after went down to 1/10000.

I am very happy that the results are positive, I only hope the false negative rate isn’t as dreadful as the false positive rate that seems to have caused so much concern for many people on message boards I frequent.

The other fabulous news is that I made my 10 gazzilionth call to Oxford to ask where the hell my money is half expecting another bogus denial. But guess what??  Its in accounts payable meaning THEY ARE ACTUALLY PAYING IT FINALLY!!!… a check will be cut this week and I should have it in my little hands by next week! YAY!!

Its like Christmas all over again :)
