The other 10%
I got the results of my blood test Friday. The genetic counselor said they looked "great." So that completes my first trimester screen that began with the level II ultrasound last Friday. We've moved from the 85% assurance to the 95% assurance that the baby has no Trisomy abnormalities. She said my risk of Downs went from 1/104 (purely based on maternal age) to 1/2036 (based on the screening).

I know they like to play with their ratios a lot, but what is more meaningful to me is that nothing they've seen so far indicates there's a problem.
