I went in to see my GP (in Canada - GP isn't referring to OBGYN until around 22wks) to review the results from my A/S done last week at 20 wks. She told me that they measured the nuchal fold - which came back as abnormal (7.1mm) and that I'll be referred to an OBGYN for further consultation etc. Needless to say I'm not sure what to think and freaking out slightly as I've been doing some research. Nuchal thickness generally isn't measured at this stage in pregnancy - often only from 11-14wks - because that is the most accurate time frame... I know that normally they don't measure the NF during the A/S (my tech was training someone else so they measured everything). I'm sure I'm rambling right now - and apologize if I don't make any sense... I'm 28, healthy and neither my husband or I have any health concerns as far as chromosomal abnormalities as far as I know. Everything else on my A/S came back as normal.. I'm so confused and probably wont see an OBGYN for a few weeks. Has anyone had this happen? Any advice or info that you can share would be so appreciated!
