What are the odds?

I'm 22 years old and pregnant with my first baby. I found out today the my risk of having a baby with down syndrome is 1/67. That is the average risk of a 42 year old. These results are from the blood screening. I have looked online at other peoples stories. And I know that everyone is different. I go for my second ultrasound and genetic counseling in a week. I know that I will most likely have the amniocentesis done just to make sure. It would be horrible to have to go through the rest of my pregnancy not knowing. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

  • Keep up the face. The odds are usually wrong. Your baby may still be normal and healthy.
