    I haven't but my best friend had the exact same problem- they couldn't get a NT measurement reading from the scan.

    So they tested her blood at 16 weeks and did the screening then. She had to wait a week for the results but got a risk factor just like you would for the earlier nuchal test. Don't worry - you'll get your answer as soon as they can get it to you and remember than the odds are in your favour - whenever you have the test.
    :hugs:

    I find the nuchal test too stressful anyways, i'm not going to have any of these tests done with any future children, i suppose with first ones you want every test possible XD

    Sonographer made me cough.... a lot to make baby move for my NT scan.

    Lots of my friends have had babies who just refused to play ball....and ended up having the blood test instead.

    Easy for me to say but ...... try not to worry.

    Yes, try not to worry, since the odds are in your favor, i don't think it matters If you have to Scan done at 13 weeks, or the blood test done at 16 weeks. I wouldn't worry about it either way. Your bubba is totally fine and besides Im sure you will love hi
    /her no matter what anyways, so it dosent matter that your just having the blood test done. I'm not doingthe scan next time around either, way too stressful- all I wanted to do my stare at my beautiful baby and the U/S Tech kept quiet and would only speak up to point out different things on the baby, which of course made me feel like aomehing was wrong!! 30 mins of that nonsense was enough for me.

    I'm sure everything will turn out great.

    The 16 week bloods are not quite as accurate as the nt test and bloods but theyre the next best thing - try not to worry xx
