    Well, the results of my first trimester screening came back with, "a high risk of Down Syndrome." So, tomorrow I have a perinatologist appointment to have a level II ultrasound. Depending on what they see, they may want to schedule an amnio in 2 weeks. I'm hoping and praying that we get good news tomorrow.

    Well, the peri gave us 1 in 180 odds that this baby had Down Syndrome. We have an amnio scheduled on 6/25 to find out for sure. She said that the amnio is 100% accurate. The risk of us having complications from the amnio is 1 in 700, so we liked the odds. We are keeping our fingers crossed that this is a healthy LO.
