    Hi all, I'm not quite tri2 but wanted some advice/opinions/experiences.
    I've just had my first scan and measured at 11weeks 3 days. My nuchal translucency measurement was 2.8mm and the sonographer said was fine as long as under 3.5mm.
    I guess my concern is that I'm only 11 weeks and 2.8 seems a bit on the high end.... Has anyone else been in the same position?

    I can't remember what it was when I had my first.

    Hi, mine measured 2.5mm, when my bloods came back I was told I was high risk for down syndrome with odds of 1 in 77. A lot of that was a result of my age however, I'm 38. I had an amnio at 16 weeks which thankfully came back completely clear and I'm now almost 24 weeks pregnant with another little boy.

    Just because mine came back high risk doesn't mean yours will. If you are high risk then they will tell you very quickly, so unless you hear otherwise, no news is good news x
