    When you have your first scan can they give you the downs liklihood right there or do you have to wait for blood tests?

    you can see your nt measurement as the doctor is doing it, but you won't get told your risk until they have the blood test result aswell.

    When I had mine done, the doc told me right away that the NT measurement was extremely high which could be an indication that I would have a high risk. He didn't elaborate, but he did tell me what it was... when the results came back, sure enough, all added together, I had a risk of 1 in 7. But we knew even from the ultrasound that we could possibly be looking at that kind of risk.

    How long does it take roughly to get the blood test results?

    I'm a little anxious about it because I have my scan and hospital appointment right before I fly home for a few days when I'd hoped I'd be able tell all my family and friends. I'd really love to have the all clear before I go...

    If you do it through the public system they will call you within 2 weeks if you're high risk. They don't call you if you're low risk.

    If you're going private it's probably faster.

    Though remember, being low risk doesn't mean all clear any more than being high risk guarantees a problem.

    My opinion (and ONLY my opinion)... better just to tell them. Most pregnancies progress normally - but for those which don't, things can go wrong at ANY time - 13 weeks isn't some magic number that means everything is safe... and also a false "negative" on those tests is not unheard of either. I don't say this to be negative, but if something DOES go wrong, from my experience, you'll appreciate the support of family and friends. If you are looking for an "all clear" it will never come, not even after the birth.
