My doctor referred me to see a specialist and it's for a first trimester aneuploidy screen. I was just wondering because I have no idea what it is, what exactly do they do for that? Is it just a different kind of ultrasound??
Thank you!!

Aneuploidy screening is a fancy way to refer to what most of us think of as "testing for Down syndrome". it's standard and generally nothing to get worked up over. currently the most common for of testing is a blood test combined with an NT ultrasound- it will look to you like an average scan; they're specifically looking at the translucency of a fold of skin at the back of the neck/head.
hope that helps.
