Your NT scan is usually booked around the 12 week mark. It's technically the screening scan for downs syndrome and other chromosomal abnormalities, it's an optional scan.
And yes, it does seem to take forever to get to that 12 week mark. Unfortunately I can't tell you that it speeds up after that either.

Definitely ask your Obs what has given you the result if you are worried (although anything over 300is considered low risk). If the fluid thickness behind the neck is low and there is a nasal bone you can feel much more confident all is well. It's important to go to a good tech who does nt scans all the time and not knees or something. If a tech is not so skilled it can affect the neck reading, as well as many techs don't know how to pick the nasal bone. If it were me I wouldn't do amino unless the factors leading to your reading are dodgy in their own right. The nt test is still only about 80% correct. There is a reason doctors suggest further testing if the result is under 300. You aren't even border line. Call your Obs and ask his/her opinion based on all the factors not just the numbers. Mine was 375 btw but Obs told me the other readings and said it was 99.8% fine. Must have good Obs and good tech IMO from working in the medical world GL x

I know some of you have mentioned having hunger with MS, are your hunger pains very extreme? To the point you feel absolutely sick and get headaches if you don't eat right away?
I've had the worst hunger pains, nausea and headaches if I don't eat, I cannot function I'm starting to wonder if it is MS or low blood sugar...

Meshell - I know I am not a doctor but I think that they are scare mongering a little. Neck measurements to worry about are over 3mm, a standard Nuchal fold measurement is around 1.6mm, 2mm is hardly a massive deviation. I am 25 also and my OB suggested not having an amnio and as I mentioned before, my risk was 1:255. The problem with being younger is that when there is a result that is slightly out it affects our 'chances' drastically. The risk calculator does account for age and regardless of age the high risk category is a chance of more than 1:300. You are well outside that range.
You're choice obviously but I really think she is stressing you out more than she needs to.
