low PAPP-A levels?

i'm writing for my SIL who is due in may. they just found out yesterday that the baby is a boy! unfortunately they were brought down by doctor who also told them that although there are no chromosomal abnormalities she does have a low PAPP-A level which could lead to stillbirth/hypertension/etc. anyone have experience with this? they are worried obviously, and don't get another ultrasound for 2 months! in the meantime what can they do to ease their minds??? thanx mommas!

I recommend reading the info online -- if you yahoo or google you will find a bunch of info on this-- is seems that it is still something underinvestigation but is not diagnostic -- her chances appear to be higher but if someone in the office does not educate her about this information she should ask for a clearer explaination --the recommendations from the testing lab it's self say as much...
