@ 19 weeks

Time flies and I think I've missed to update my last visit to my gynae's clinic which due last month. Anyhow, I went for my follow up appointment yesterday. And guess what....??? I bumped into Donna and one of my hubby's colleague in the same clinic, what a small world.

Baby weight: 239g
Heartbeat: 160 beats per minutes

I can feel his movement 2 weeks ago and it's so amazing. During the scan, he keep on moving and I think it's because he is so excited to see 3 of us.

Nothing special on the routine checkup as my gynae commented everything seems alright except for the triple test report. The report show that I'm high risk in the Trisomy 21 test and my risk is 1:138. In other words, among 138 women with the same data as mine, there is 1 woman will have the Trisomy 21 pregnancy (carry a down syndrome baby) whereby 137 women will not be affected ( hope I will be in this group)

My gynae suggested me to carry out the Amniocentesis test for a more accurate answer or just disregard the report and carry on my pregnancy. After discussied with hubby, he strongly agreed that I carry out the test as we can have a better plan after the result is out no matter it's a good one or a bad one. We don't want to play the guessing game for the rest of my pregnancy.

I'm schedule to do the test on next Monday and the result only will be available after 2 weeks as they need to send the specimen to Singapore lab for testing. I think the only thing I can do now is stay calm and relax. Hope everything will be fine and I can have a healthy baby.

Angie,
How many weeks you are pregnant now? If you haven't reach 14 weeks, I will suggest you to go for the Nuchal Scan, it's more accurate than the triple test and less risk compare to the Amnio..... Good luck!
