I had to share... my AFP this pregnancy was normal! Last pregnancy, it came back with elevated risk for Down Syndrome. I looked and my Inhibin-A levels were really high and the MoM was 2.57. This time is was 1.4, which I think is a good sign?
I don't know much about all this but it came back normal, so I am happy for the moment.
I'm now 17w2d. Getting closer to the 20 week mark where I will probably start to panic. My BPs have been great! 100's/60's. They weren't even that low prior to pregnancy. I'm on Labetolol 200mg 3 times a day, so it seems to be controlling things really well.
I also wanted to ask... how many of you have had a uterine artery doppler/ultrasound? My OB and MFM haven't mentioned this but I did some research and it seems to be pretty important. I'm going to ask about it. Do they do that at a Level II ultrasound or is it different?
