Its called a Nuchal and nothing risky its just a specialized ultrasound, its an amniocentesis that's risky and that possible comes next if ur Nuchal is positive.

I had mine at 12 weeks, but was actually 12+5. They measured the fluid in the neck via ultrasound, and I had a blood test. My results came back last week as low risk so nothing further need to be done. If I had been high risk they would have offered taking a sample of the anmeotic fluid via needle which I'd have refused as they're a small risk of miscarriage.

I had my nuchal scan yesterday.  Normal results, waiting for blood results.  The perineonatologist also told me that he is 98% sure we are having a boy.  I am 13 weeks today, so mine was done at 12 weeks 6 days.
