Nuchal translucency screening

Postby sammycat » Mon Jul 06, 2009 8:48 pm

Hi there,

I was recommended to have nuchal translucency screening ultrasound and lab testing. Has anyone else had this done and would you recommend it? I'm afraid of getting abnormal results and going through possible unnecessary weeks/months of worry.

Any advice?

I did the u/s screening, but not the lab work. It is a very personal decision. For me, I was going to worry no matter what so this actually put my worries to rest sooner. If you do choose it, it's important to keep in mind that it's a screening, not a diagnostic. These boards are full of examples of mothers who had scary results, but ended up with totally healthy babies.
