Just had OSCAR scan results through, last time round we lost our baby to a very serious heart defect which was first indicated by a very high nuchal translucency measurement (4.8mm)

Was petrified about this time round, nearly sick on way in to hospital, but just had results:

Nuchal fold 1.9mm
Risk of Down's 1:6500
Risk of Edward's/Patau's 1:12,500

Hooray! smile

Thats lovely!!!grin grin

I'm grinning all over! The consultant said my blood tests couldn't have been better. I feel very proud, like I passed an exam or something...

We still have to have a specialist heart scan at 18 weeks to check on the heart, but he said it's looking really good, and he could see four chambers of the heart already, so fingers crossed.
