    Definitely look into an amnio. A termination shouldn't be considered if the NT scan alone was high risk, that risk count alone is still really good. If there are no abnormalities found its a great sign too.

    Good luck and hope your results come back clear x

    Hi Nyrekz

    My Nuchal scan results for my 3rd child gave me a risk of 1:32 for DS. It was a huge shock and the sonographer had a terrible bedside manner, I was a mess. My bloods elevated my risk but also the nuchal fold was quite high being a bit over .3mm
    We opted for an amnio, althought the wait was excruciating we decided to wait as the risk of miscarriage was less than that of a cvs. All other markers in the 12 week scan indicated healthy baby and the amnio gave us a result of no abnomalities and we have a very healthy beautiful 2.5 year old girl.
    I understand how you are feeling at the moment, for me not knowing was harder I think than being told immediately if there was something definately wrong. I am sorry your partner is not being helpful for you in this process. We chose amnio as we wanted to know if there were any issues and then once we knew we could look at all our options and decide what was best for the baby and us as a family.
    All the best for tomorrow when you see the Genetic Councillor, I didn't see one but from what I have heard they are very good and will go through things thoroughly with you, ask them whatever you feel you need to, that's what they are there for.
    Big hugs and let us know how you get on

    I have a 1:37 chance of ds after my nt scan was amazing nothing wrong, my blood made it high risk. My DR was really nice and i had my amnio yesterday.
    Not the most fun thing but not as bad as i worked myself up to think it would be.
    The Dr would not do it till i was 16t1. We are paying for the FISH and get our results tomorrow arvo.
    They should not have said anything about a termination just on a nt scan, when there is more tests out there you can have.
    I wish you all the best.

    Bub came up as high risk for 3 chromosomes, scan was fine, my blood results are what weren't. Was the hardest time for us as we had decided to terminate if bub was positive for any of the 3. I had the amino which was slightly uncomfortable but not painful, was quick. All was fine. Our baby boy just turned 2.

    Please don't terminate. 1 in 67 means a 98% chance your baby is perfect. Get genetic testing (Cvs or amnio) before you make a massive decision like this.

    hi ladies sorry I haven't been able to reply I been away from computer for awhile I went to dospital today and I thought I was having just a chat but I ended up doing a cvs I find out the results on Monday so fingers crossed everything is normal....they said it looks like a little girl ... I will post an update when I find out the results...the cvs was scarey I was shaking they thought I was cold but I was just petrified I just put a towel over my head but the ladies were lovely and so caring, im so proud of myself because I was sooo close to backing out im a little bit tender where they did it and cramping but now is the waiting game.... they said I have a 50percent chance of my little one having a syndrome, 25 percent chance of a heart problem, and 25 percent of being normal so I hope I beat the odds....if the test comes back normal, then my bubba's odds greatly go up....thanx so much for caring and god bless u all ill let u know when I have results
