For the ladies who have had an NT scan in the past/who have had one done recently, who exactly performs this scan? Your OBGYN or a sonographer?

Can anyone recall what the "healthy" measurements of the neck are? Rather absent-minded on this subject matter, and I've read up on the general 411 about it but I can't find an article explaining the neck measurements. I've chosen to have this done tomorrow, although my Dr. won't know I'm opting for it until I get there!


Some early on challenges But we're gonna push through them!!!

I had to go to the hospital ultrasound center. My OB office does not perform the NT scans. The sonographer has to be licensed specifically to do the NT measurements.

As far as the neck measurements go, I was told anything less than a 3 is good. I'm not sure 3 what (millimeters maybe?).

My OB did the first two and a tech did the 3rd. I've had 3 because they were worried I was ectopic.
