I'll be 24 weeks on Friday. I went to my first ever ultrasound today. I was told that I'm measuring 15 days behind and that the nuchal fold is 6.2. They recommended an amnio and said that I have a 1 in 27 chance that this baby has down syndrome. I'm in good health, young, and I've never had any problems with any pregnancy. Never had a miscarriage either. With all three babies they've measured low. The doctor says its normal to measure low in the third trimester but not this early. All three of my kids have weighed 7 pounds at birth. I didn't want to tell Dh because I'm sure he'll freak out. Even if this baby was ds it wouldn't really change the way I birth (I don't think). Has anyone else gone through this?
