Hi, I am 40 years pregnant and I and my husband think about having amniocentesis test to be sure that our baby will be healthy and won t have scary genetic illnesses. I now have 14 week pregnancy. All blood tests and ultrasound were good. But 40?.. How safe for baby health is this test? Thanks

Hi Doctor, I had my Oscar scan test done and have the following results: My age: 30years Gestational age: 11weeks + 5days Ultrasound findings: Singleton pregnancy Heart action positive, frequency 162bpm CRL: 52.3MM NT: 1mm Nasal bone length: 1.6mm Maternal Serum Biochemistry: PAPP-A: 0.6328 MoM HCG: 3.7695MOM Trisomy 21: Background risk: 1:593 Ultrasound risk: 1:2967 Biochemistry risk: 1:44 Adjusted risk: 1:312 Trisomy 18: Background risk: 1:1367 Ultrasound risk: 1:4142 Biochemistry risk: 1:9966 Adjusted risk: 1:27337 Trisomy 13: Background risk: 1:4309 Ultrasound risk: 1:84175 Biochemistry risk: 1:25166 Adjusted risk: 1:86189 I was told by my gynae that under Trisomy 21, i/m having a border line high risk for having a baby with down syndrome... and to confirm the result, I can choose to go for the amniocentesis test when i m 16weeks onwards. I am 3days to 16 weeks pregnant... I am utterly uncomfortable to go for the amniocentesis test. However, the result really saddened me. I would like to seek your advise and experience that if I forgo the amniocentesis test and go for a detailed scan at 21weeks instead, will it help to give us more assured results? Also I know that my HCG result is very high... is it this result that worsened my overall rating? By the way, when doing the baby Oscar scan, the result is in a normal range. Really appreciate some insights from you. Thanks & regards Anne Singapore
