welcome to HCM
read your prob. nothing to worry at 13wks of prgnancy this is normal. as your
brother has down it doesnot means that same happened with you.
but as it is genetic prob so along with NT you should get QUAD SCREEN
and INTEGRATED TEST ,it will helps you to rule out down syndrome.
so be happy n discuss it with your doc about that test. if you need any help or you have any query contect me on
