I am pregnant with #3 and will be 35 by two months when I deliver so they consider me advance maternal age I had a NT ultrasound and the measurement was 2.5mm which the doctor said was on the high range of normal but the more research I have done most studies state anything under 3mm is normal he wants to send he for another ultrasound in a bigger town with a more "experinced" tech the ultrsound I had was about 5 min and then she told me that the baby was in the postion for NT testing and then when she gave the picture to the doctor is said it was a good picture and it was an abd ultrasound and I am only 11+3 I would think that a vag would be more accurate???? Just confused has anyone else had a 2.5 reading and no blood work was done
Just lurking here but sounds like your doctor just wants to be sure on things. 2.5 is within the normal range but on the high side. I wouldnt really worry hun as it sounds like everything will be fine. I don't think they use a transvaginal for nuchal fold measurements.
I have a feeling when you go back in, it will be even lower.
2.5 is within normal range. But the thing is, the NT scan typically much longer than 5min. It should be performed by a special high risk dr with a specially trained high risk tech. Both of them were in the room and present for the u/s. The Dr was actually assisting the tech and telling her additional pics and views he wanted. I know when I had mine with DD1, it was about 20-25min. My OB office has an u/s tech on site and that is where I go for EVERYTHING. When she suggested the NT for me, she sent me to a special Dr in the hospital I go to. It is my understanding that BW is actually part of the NT test and it is a combo of the scan and the BW that they come up with the final risk number for you. I would look in to that a little more. You are almost too far along to get the NT scan done so I would check on it ASAP.
