Kizzy

1:2000 is brilliant......they only suggest further testing if your risk is 1:300 or greater......this is fantastic news for you....WELL DONE

i wouldn;t be too worried hun- as the others have said, 1:2000 is Low risk. The problem is that although the tests are pretty acurate, there is no way (apart from an amniocentesis) that they can tell you for certain that bubba doesn't have downs.
Therefore the results err on the side of caution and have to tell you the "theoretical" risk of a problem, however low it is.

the results came by post - with no really explaination - i think its the word 'chance' that makes the alarm bells rings a little.

Think i just cross posted with you kizzy- the result is usually a standard letter, because they have to inform you that although it is low risk, it is not no risk (ie a very slim chance of a problem)

don't worry.
