Quoting LaKiaH:" Good morning everyone, I hope everyone had a great 4th, I am so nervous and excited...I have my NT ... [snip!] ... was it a transabdominal scan and did you have to have a full bladder? My paperwork didn't mention anything about that!!!"
I just had mine on Monday.. they did an u/s first... then if all is well they do the bloodwork. My husband and I were nervous and she told me my u/s looked great and if there were any red flags they wouldn't be doing bloodwork, i'd be getting a whole different series of tests. After the bloodwork, I went upstairs to my ob/gyn and she confirmed our u/s looked great and there were no worries. I do have to go back in July to get more bloodwork done.. then they combine both times of getting bloodwork done plus the u/s and give you a "risk" assessment. it's a long process but will make you feel so much better in the end
