So I had my 12 week scan yesterday and don’t go back to the doctor until Wednesday to check on my blood results.
My NT was 2.4mm the lady that performed it says she saw a nasal bone so it looks good.
Can anyone tell me what there’s was? I feel it is to thick.
My last lost was 16weeks due to chromesone and his NT was 2.2mm so now I’m starting to worry.
Has anyone had them it the 2s and everything was ok?

I posted this on the other forum and just noticed I can make a topic here. Not sure how I remove the other.
Just seems easier to do it here as we all going through our scans

I’ve got mine coming in a little over a week, so you’ll have a better idea of results before then anyway.

I can’t actually remember what my previous 2 were, they usually just said they are within normal range. Was your previous loss down syndrome related, or one of the other trisomies? I have no idea if they register the same with the fluid measurement or not.

We had our 12 week scan yesterday. Everything was looking good & my cervix was measuring well. We had a bit of drama over the last week. I lost what looked like my mucous plug & cervix was looking short the next day, I started on progesterone & have a stitch booked for Monday.

Doctor said the baby is fine as they saw a nasal bone and anything under 3m is fine. I’m just at risk cause of my age. But baby is good 🤗

Sorry to hear about ma.wright hopefully all goes well with the stitch getting put in.
