    Have just booked my Nuchal translucency with blood test.
    Has anyone else had these? I thought as im in my thirties I would get it checked. they cant be done on the same day as the bloods have to be sent off but they will do a dateing scan on 8th May and then i will have to go back on 17th may for the nuchal scan and to talk through my results.

    Have also got a NHS scan booked on 14th may but not sure weather to cancel as will have one on 17th. :wacko:

    Maybe give them a call & see what they suggest? Or move you scan date?

    Do they not automatically give you a Nuchal translucency scan at around 13 weeks anyway? It's where they look at the thickness of babies neck isn't it? Atleast thats what they did at mine when I was 14 weeks.... They assess the risk of downsyndrome from that one scan and then give you the blood test. I could be wrong but that's how mine worked because by the end of the U/S, the consultant told me before I even had a test for downs that my scan went well and there looked to be no signs of any problems and she specifically mentioned downs- so I dunno. If I were you, i'd cancel because Im sure you're going to be having the same scan at the NHS appointment.
