I am 37 and my stats came back at 1/54 for DS. However, like some of our friends above have also said, we decided not to have the amnio as we were going to have the baby regardless. Doc was a little surprised at our refusal of the amnio and suggested we have a detailed scan instead, which we did, and this showed no signs of the usual physical abnormalities often associated with DS. Whilst this is no guarantee, it helped to reassure us. I do feel for you, as I know how stressful this time was for us. My recommendation would be to have a detailed scan first and see what that shows up and then reconsider with the information you have. PS my beautiful, healthy, perfect, baby girl was born 6 weeks ago.

I was in the same shoe as you - eager to take the amnio due to age risk factor, because of the returned blood test which was similar to your result, I cannot recall exactly, the doc at Tsun Yuk adamently said there was no need to do it. So I went without doing it, I am glad I took that decision. My baby is very healthy.
