NT Scan 3.5mm


I'm really looking for some advice/experiences etc.

I was told today that baby had 3.5mm fluid build up behind his/her neck indicating a higher risk of a trisomy/chromosome/genetic defect. The sonographer said a 1:5 chance based on the scan alone but that may change when the blood really a come back in a few weeks. I'm devastated and praying that my baby is healthy.

Does anyone have any positive experiences/any experiences of a high risk nuchal scan? Thanks

Thank you for your kind words. We've organised a CVS for this coming Friday and will hopefully have our initial results on the Monday/Tuesday following. I have everything crossed that baby is fine but hubby and I are "need to know" people .... I would make myself sick with worry if I waited for months to know.

Thinking of you too Sue - I wouldn't wish this wait on anyone. I have everything crossed that your results are fine xx

Good luck with the CVS.
Are you going to have them tell you the gender?

Thanks Seity, yes I think we'll find out if we're having a pink or blue . I wasn't bothered either way but hubby would like to know. I'm hoping it will help me bond more with bump, it's as if I've been too scared to bond with him/her due to all of this hanging over us . I'm so nervous about the CVS but I'll be far more nervous without knowing!

Try to think of the positive. I do remember a lady on here when I was pregnant with my son who was given 1 in 5 odds. I believe she didn't have further testing, but when the baby came they were one of the lucky 4 and her baby was fine. You just never know sometimes.

charlies was 3.9 at my scan which i was worried about but with bloods it took me down to a 1: 135 chance, the sonographer said that just being aged 40 gave me a 1: 150 chance before id even walked in the room! i decided against any other testing, id fallen in love with him and nature had already decided the outcome and i wanted him no matter what lay ahead but i do understand people needing to know and being prepared to make certain descisions my friend was given 1:6 odds and her baby was born healthy. hope everything goes ok for you x
