Hi dear, the news must be causing you a lot of distress. At the same time, the NT measurement isn’t the only assessment for Downs Syndrome. It needs to be interpreted together with the blood test... so please don’t fret yet, and wait for the blood test result, which your gynae should go through with you. There are babies with a higher NT measurement who turn out not to have any chromosomal abnormalities. Hope you’ll get to see your gynae soon.
