Anyone get their trisomy 21 screening back abnormal too? This is the bloodtest in the first trimester where they test your free beta HCG & PAPP-A levels and then factor in your age and gestational week = likelihood of some chromosomal disorders. My free beta HCG was around 1.5 mom and my PAPP-A was around 0.65. With my age of 33, that put me at moderate risk for Down's. They sent me to have a nuchal translucency, which was 1.15 mm (made me low risk). But the high HCG and low PAPP-A levels still bother me because low PAPP-A can mean something is wrong with the placenta or something. Anyone else have abnormal blood levels of these and your baby was fine?
