I went for a 12 week scan and the nuchal

I went for a 12 week scan and the nuchal measurement was 7.1mm and the dr also mentioned that one of the valves was leaking. I.e pumping half the blood and that she couldn’t see the nasal bone. My blood test came back with 1:4 for trisomy 21 and 1:5 for trisomy 18. My question is without going any further with other tests, based on the above what are the chances of having a normal healthy baby, because my doctor informed me that based on what she sees, I wouldn’t be able to take this baby home.

Hello doctor, I recently had my 12 week nuchal translucency scan and am not sure how to intepret the results. The measurement measures at 0.14 cm. Is this considered normal or abnormal? Can you provide guidance on what normal ranges are in cm? Many thanks.

hi doc. I am 41 years old and now 15 weeks pregnant. I am worried about down syndrome. my doc did the Nuchal scan ar 12 weeks and it was 1.6mm. Doc say it is fine. but the doc did not do the 1st Trimester maternal serum bloodtest and now i am already 15 weeks so i cant do that bloodtest anymore. Now i have to make a choice whether to do the Triple test or should i do the amniocentesis directly ? I read that Nuchal scan + 1st trimester bloodtest will give 95% certainty. Now with the nuchal scan and triple test, will it be sufficient that i will not have to do the amniocentesis which is a invasive procedure ? doc can you pls advice.

Hi my name is Kate im 22, i have been told at my 12 week scan that my baby looks normal but they are worried as he/she has a nuchal measurement of 6.8mm and also there is a little nuchal around the babys stomach. Please could you tell me what is wrong as they have ruled out down syndrome. Could it be turners syndrome or is there any hope it could be a healthy baby? thanks
