I don't know wether or not to worry or not. I just got a phone call with the results of my first trimester testing for Downs syndrome. I got a slightly elavated risk for DS, 1:300 I don't understand the result. The didn't really explain it to me other then that they will do a more detailed ultrasound at 18 weeks. I am unsure how to feel about it. I say I am not going to worry but here I am biting my nails off! The genetic counseler who called me told me that if it had been a 1:310 they would not even have called me. So is this still good odds? I am reading online about women who have a 1:23 chance...so this can't be that bad. So, do I worry or try to wait it out?
