Mine was at 1.1…..but I had heard over 3 was a higher chance.  I could be wrong though.  Have you received your blood work back?

I think mine was 1.7. Did you do one of the new genetic tests (Harmony, MaterniT21, etc) or the traditional testing?

mrsalexander:  Remember it is only a screening test. Your results seem to be within the normal range for dates.

An NT measurement of up to 2mm is normal at about 11 weeks, and up to about 2.8mm by 13 weeks and six days. The NT normally grows in proportion with your baby. The image, left, shows a baby with a normal NT of 1.3mm; this baby will be low-risk. An increased NT does not mean there is definitely a problem. Some babies without Down’s have increased fluid, too. The image, right, shows a baby with an NT of 2.9mm, which is at the upper limit of normal range. Nine out of 10 babies with a measurement between 2.5mm and 3.5mm will be completely normal.

Mine was 2.5 and I had it the last day they would do it. I was told anything over 3 was concerning

If they are concerned they will do blood tests to rule anything out. Don’t worry this happens a lot and its nothing!

They told me mine (1.0) right afterwards, and said only anything over 3.0 would be of concern at that point, and if it had been, they would recommend CVS or Amnio then and not wait for the sequential screen results.

I was 1.6 at 12w 4d. I was told by the tech that < 2.0 was what they were looking for.

Also, were you doing the first trimester screen blood test too? They combine the NT scan results with the blood work results to estimate your risk.
