Welcome to dr.sitehome.info.

I have seen the report completely (attachment removed to protect patient identity).

Your report is normal and there is no need to worry. If you want a detailed explanation about the report, then here you go.

There are some genetic syndromes, which are happening worldwide in which baby can be seriously handicapped physically, body function wise or mentally.

Now you cannot diagnose any genetic disease directly without baby cell as it contains DNA. But, the procedure (amniocentesis) for obtaining baby cell itself is very risky and can even lead to abortion and also more costly.

So, we are doing a screening test to diagnose the high risk pregnancies that have a high risk of getting that genetically abnormal baby.

For that we combine different parameters and compare it with a standardized data to come to a ratio for chance of current pregnancy having that genetic abnormality.

The test is negative and positive; according to either it is below the cutoff value or above. 1:250 meaning, 250 pregnancies like you having a chance of only 1 positive for that genetic abnormal baby.

So, as your report is good in which it is negative for Down’s syndrome (trisomy 21) and also for 18 and 13 (Patau and Edward syndrome). So, your pregnancy is normal and no need to worry. You have to do only one thing and that is to follow normal medicines and precautions.

One more thing I have seen in your report is that the cervical length is 3.0 cm. It is somewhat borderline at 12 weeks of pregnancy. For that you need to take proper rest.

Just increase the duration of your rest time and continue Progesterone (Endogest 200) two or three times a day.
