    I have a private nuchal fold scan and associated blood tests coming up soon. Can somebody who's had this done tell me how long it takes to get the results? I am guessing that the bloods have to be sent off to the lab, but I am hoping that they can give me a rough idea based just on the nuchal fold itself and that they can do that during the scan. Is that right?

    My clinic said I could go in in the morning for the blood test and have a scan late afternoon and get a full result the same day.

    I couldn't do that so they posted me a blood pack (as the clinic is a long way away) and the local private hospital is taking the blood tomorrow, I post it and get a full result at the scan next week. (Midwife originally said she would take the blood then rang and said she wasn't covered for it....so have to pay £14.50 for blood to be taken privately).

    I expect it varies though.....

    If you are going private you should get results the same day, i have to wait 10 days as mine is on the NHS

    Did you have a 12 week NT scan on the NHS Baby.love? Don't have it down here.......just the 3 in 1 at 16 weeks which the midwife said only 60% effective.
