We FINALLY have some real news. It turns out that it was all a false alarm. Baby seems to be fine. We've decided to get the triple screen done and will have the technician look really closely at the big u/s on Aug 30. I was given a lot of "I've done everything I'm supposed to, I can't help you", "we're still waiting for results", "it's not my problem" in the last week. Offices weren't talking to each other, my original scans weren't being sent - it was unbelievably frustrating! My midwives are looking into the reasons why this was such an ordeal, and are writing complaint letters to the head of radiology of both the original hospital and the health region, as are dh and I.
Anyways, the results were false, because the technician wasn't trained to do nuchal translucency (sp?) measurements and she did them wrong. The baby must be between 45 and 80mm (crown to rump), and my baby was only 40mm - right there that nullifies everything. Technicians need to zoom in to make measurements and she never did. Nuchal folds greater than 3mm are markers for Down's Syndrome. My baby's folds were only 2.7mm and they rounded the measurement up - a big no-no. The medical geneticist at the Women's hospital took a look at the scans and said everything looks fine.
So now we breath a sigh of relief and thankfulness. An annoyed sigh, but a relieved and thankful sigh nonetheless. Thanks again for all the positive vibes/thoughts/prayers.
