[ - ] Q for all you testing/non-testing moms. I'm 33 years old, 12 weeks pregnant with #2, and got the all-clear from my MaterniT21 test last week. But I got nuchal (scan + bloodwork) results back today, with a 1/491 chance of Downs. It's better than my age-related risk, but not by much. Should I get an amnio or not? I prefer not to, all else being equal, and was REALLY hoping to avoid this whole debate this time around by taking the MaterniT21. But now that I have a not-great nuchal result, not sure how to weigh the accuracy of the MaterniT21 against the nuchal screen. Anyone btdt? Thanks so much for any thoughts! 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

What did your doctor say? It's my understanding that the MaterniT21 test is extremely accurate. My doctor didn't even do the nuchal scan after my MaterniT2 test came back okay and I'm 37. [ Reply | More ]

IMO you seem young and already have a healthy child, but if you want to know for sure, the only way to do that is to have the amnio. I had my 2nd older than you at 35 and had similar nuchal results to yours and didn't do an amnio and had a healthy baby boy. I had a 3rd child at 38 and we decided to do CVS and everything was okay. I know it's scary because of course they talk to you about miscarriage and all, so i understand you thinking about that, so talk to DH and do what you think is best. I think you will be fine with the tests you have, your young age and the fact that you already have had a healthy child, but it's a very personal choice. GL. xo [ Reply | More ]

When I was 44 and having this done, as soon as they did the nuchal measurement and found it high they decided to immediately do cvs. Everything came back fine, and my nuchal number was very high...something like 50% with my number had a major issue. With your numbers I honestly would not worry about it. [ Reply | More ]

Op here. Thanks everyone. My doctor is pretty conservative (meaning she leans towards more tests) and basically said that the odds of miscarriage from an amnio were 1/400ish and that's close to my odds of Downs, so in her book, I should consider the amnio. FWIW, I went through a similar scenario with #1: Downs odds of 1/478 after the nuchal, and that which was MUCH higher than my age-related risk (I was 30 at the time). After much hemming and hawing and an early anatomy scan at 17 weeks to look for markers, I opted not to do an amnio that time around. I think I am leaning that way again, esp after reading your comments. Love to hear of any other experiences! Part of my uncertainty is that I think the MaterniT21 might be more accurate among high-risk women, which I am not. Has anyone else heard it can be less accurate for a low-risk population? [ Reply | More ]

The accuracy isn't based on your risks. It is more likely to have false-positives than false negatives. Your baby is almost certainly completely fine. Chill. [ Reply | More ]
