I'm so glad I found this site. I'm 40 years old and pregnant for the first time. I'm 11 weeks 5 days and I conceived through IVF. I went for my last visit to the fertility specialist before I get released to my regular OB/GYN and during the ultrasound they measured the baby and the nuchal measurement came back at 3.625, for my age the Dr said they like to see it at 3 or less. According to the technician the baby was at awkward angle but they're referring me to a specialist non the less. I have the appointment with the specialist next Thursday but in the meantime I'm completely obsessing and for the first time since I found out I was pregnant not enjoying being pregnant.
There was no blood test done, that will be done by the specialist but I'm taking no comfort in the data I'm finding on line that there is a high rate of false positives with this screening. Anyone out there going through or been though anything similar?
Any insight would be appreciated.
