NT Scan

So we opted for the Nuchal Translucency Screening (NT Scan).  Mainly because insurance covered it and we were already going to be at the office for our first ultrasound.  Super excited that our results were extremely good!

NT measurement below 1.8mm and + nasal bone present.  The nurse from our office called with all the numbers today and I wrote them down, but left at work in my locker.  Will update next week.  The one number I remember, Down's Syndrome risk for us 1:less than 10,000 (which is an AWESOME result!!!)  Our risk based on my age alone was 1:860, but with measurements and blood work we are rated NEGATIVE.  Love it!  Hoping for a healthy bean!!!
