I'm having a CVS at 2pm, very nervous

I had my dating scan on Saturday when I was 11wks 4 days, the NT measurement was 3.8, I also had the blood test. The midwife scanning me told me that the screening would most likely come back high risk so I booked in straight away for CVS.
I've felt so different this pregnancy, I have a dd who is 3), almost like I know there is something wrong.

We were so excited on Saturday before the scan but now I feel sort of strange.

Anyone had similar NT at that many weeks? The cut off is 3.5 but that is up to 13wks and 6 days, feel certain it's going to be bad news because it's so high so early.

i was told my baby has an enlarged bladder at my nuchal scan. Was told it could be indicative of a chromosomal abnormality.
Decided against cvs and waited for 4 anxious weeks until they scanned again. It was still slightly enlarged but I decided against an amino too. My pregnancy was a miracle as I had been told there was no chance so I felt that whatever the outcome it was meant to be anyway.
I had a healthy ds.
All pregnancies are different.
Good luck this afternoon. Hopefully you won't have to wait too long for the result.

Hand holding here flowers we had a cvs for a very large Nt/cystic hygroma a few weeks ago, our results came back quickly, so I hope it's the same for you and they bring you reassuring news.
The procedure itself was ok, but do try to take it easy for at least a day afterwards, I was quite sore and achy once the local wore off.
There is an antenatal tests board on here, which may be useful to are not alone and I hope you get some reassuring results x

I've had 2. My first son has a gentic condtion which we have a 25% chance of passing on. I have one healthy son and I'm pregnant again with a baby that isn't affected. I no it isn't nice but more uncomfortable. Rest tonight and tomorrow and I hope you get your results back soon xx
