Hi, I am 41 years old and currently 14 and 2 days pregnant. This is my first pregnancy. I was 10 weeks we decided to do the Harmony Test to make sure our bub was ok due to my high risk age, the results came low risk and normal but when I had my 12 week NT scan and blood works the results came back 1:3 increased chance of Down Syndrome. I was very shocked and upset regarding the results and we have decided to go ahead with amniocentesis test but waiting when this will be. Has anyone else ever had any similar experience. We have waited so long to have our child and it is very stressful to know that maybe there could be something wrong but we have to wait.

Hi, I am in the same situation but the other way around. Did the usual NT test which came back at 1:23 risk for Down Syndrome. I broke down as soon as the Dr. told me the numbers. I had blood taken for a Harmony Test that day and am now waiting very anxiously on the results. The harmony test is way more accurate than the first trimester screening, so I would go by those results? It is such a horrible time not knowing if bubs is going to be ok or not. I am just a mess at the moment. If our Harmony comes back low risk, I think we'll go by that. If it is positive then will have an amnio to confirm results. Good luck with it all, I sincerely hope your baby (and mine) are going to be just fine.
