I am 40 years old and p/g with my 2nd child (my daughter is 5). I have had two previous m/c. Last week, I went for a nuchal scan and was given horrific odds of 1 in 2 chance of having a child with Downs or other chromosomal abnormality. We couldn't believe it! I have never heard of anyone having such bad odds. The nuchal fold measured 4.4mm. They also checked out the heart and confirmed that it looked OK and confirmed that they had found a nasal bone. We immediately opted for a CVS which was conducted there and then by Professor Nikolides (can't spell!!) as we were at Kings College Hospital. He was fantastic. Anyway the results came back 3 days later and were negative! We have been asked to go back for a cardiac scan and an anomoly scan next week (at 14 weeks) and presumably if everything is OK, we will still have to go back every couple of weeks until at least 20 weeks. I am very confused about this result and convinced myself that there must be another reason for such a terrible initial result on the nuchal scan. The baby seems to be growing well - is ahead of its dates, and as I said, they couldn't find anything else wrong at that time.
Has anyone else had a similar experience? Please help, we are desperate!
Nuchal Scan high risk result but CVS normal
