My risk was 1:100000 and the measurement was 1.1, im 22 and have a highish bmi. Baby was still and in perfect view of measurements, im sure this has some affect on result. Babies with ds usually have measurements of 6.0mm. Good luck hun x
we must live in a similar area as i will be having baby at macclesfield Hospital.
my DH and I need to discuss the NT test for our booking appointment next week, but i don't think we would have an amnio even if the results were high. I think we will have the NT test just to prepare us one way or the other.

He was really reassuring and positive in his manner and he has managed to stop me from panicing, even thought it is always at the back of my mind.
Credit to Mr Vince Hall from Macclesfield Hospital I have chosen to have an amnio which is on 1 March.
I can honestly say I wouldn't have the nt test done again. As long as you are gonna keep the baby it isn't worth the worrying. We have done nothing but search the Internet and have a constant worry until the results came in. It's Only a risk factor and it's literally took over the last two weeks of our lives worrying and it's really spoilt enjoying my first trimester. Rotherham hospital aren't very good with supplying information. I talked to midwife and my consultant and neither really could say much to put our minds at ease. Obviously it's a personal choice but if u are keeping the baby no matter what and not having the amnio or cvs my advice would be not to have it and just enjoy your pregnancy. Xxx
