    hiya ladies i had my scan yesterday :D

    they told me everything looked absolutley fine and the baby was so cute :happydance:

    but i just feel concerned it didnt seem to be hugley activie, it bounced up in the air once and sucked its thumb but it mainly just seemed to be lied chillin on its back in the position attached below lol ... do you think thats ok? every1 talks about there babies bouncing all over the place.

    Also the nuchal fold was 2mm, the woman told me this is normal and they dont even show concern till its over 3.5mm , i just feel it was still high, you think thats alright? ive got to wait for my blood to come back but the hospital think it all looks normal

    They do that..Sometimes, they are sleeping, or just relaxing..Could be he's just mellow too.

    I would imagine just like us they are sometimes chilled and relaxed and sometimes moving around like a mad one!! I am sure if it was a cause for concern they would have mentioned it.

    I have heard others saying if they have had something sugary to eat or drink beforehand it can cause the LO to be more active!

    hi hun, 2mm at 13 weeks is absolutely fine. When I had my 13 week nuchal, i was told NT grow in proportion to number of weeks of the baby. At 13 weeks upto 3mm is normal. So yours is well within the normal range.

    When I had my scan- first of all the baby was moving around so much, they couldn't get any measurements (perhaps it was the can of coke I had before going in, whoopsie! :blush:) then the baby must have fallen asleep and they couldn't get it to move at all so they managed to do the CRL but couldn't do the nuchal so I now have to do the bloods instead.
