I'm 33 and I had my 12 weeks ultrasound and measured 71.1mm and was dated at 13 weeks and 2 days. The scan went well and the NT was measured at 2.7mm. Nothing was mentioned at the scan and my notes said that I was within the normal range but I stupidly googled it and although within the normal limits some sites said it was the high end of normal. I also had a blood test and the combined result came back as 1:1300 and said I was low risk. I felt happy with this until my friend told me her result was 1:10,000 and its left me feeling less reassured. Anyway I've since read the presence of a nasal bone at the scan is a good sign. The sonographer didn't mention anything about the nasal bone and there is nothing in my notes. My scan photos aren't great but can anyone tell me if there is a nasal bone? I know I shouldn't worry but after two miscarriages I'm just anxious about everything. Thanks

The nasal bone is there, very clear. It's the nose basically. See how sharp and unmistakable it is? smile

Thanks for the reply, I do appreciate it. I find the pics really blurry and compared to some of the crystal clear images of nasal bones I'd seen I couldn't make it out. Maybe I've just looked at it too much!? Fresh eyes on them has been most helpful. Thanks again.

In all fairness the nasal bone is a 'soft marker' it's used in conjunction with other 'soft markers' to indicate a possible problem.
Even without one baby could well be fine or vice versa.
You've been given the all clear. Don't stress the details. smile

Not sure if anyone will ever read this post but thought I'd finally update. I worried my whole pregnancy but had a healthy baby. He does have a bit of a chub at the back of his neck but it's nothing and he's fine.

Was coming on to say yes I can clearly see the nasal bone, and then saw your update. Congratulations on your son! smile

Just to say my DS has a lovely wee nose / nasal bone and has DOwns Syndrome so it's pretty unreliable in my opinion as a marker!
