Nuchal Translucency test

I had my NT test today. The ultrasound was normal, now I'm waiting for the blood test results for a complete picture.
Does anyone had a NT yet.

Do you know the normal range.

My technicians said they like to see a NT less than 3 mm. Mine was less she measured few times and the highest was 2.3 mm.  The fetus was measuring 12 w and 6 days (according to my LMP I should be 12 w 1 d).

yes - I had the Nuchal Transluncency test when I was 13 weeks - I was told that based on the ultrasound alone there was a 1 in 360 chance of a baby with downs - and combined with my blood test results and age (37) - the overall result was 1 in 227 -
I'm pretty happy - I would have liked the odds to be slightly better - (my sister had a 1 in 4000 chance!)  But 1 in 227 is still less than half a percent chance so we certainly don't feel the need for an amnio or anything!    
Good luck with the blood results!

That result is great. I'm pg with twins and Baby A had an NT of 0.9 and Baby B had an NT of 1.9. I know that 3 is the cutoff for high and normal risk. I looked online trying to find the average NT for 12w - it was 2 or 2.1. I was exactly 12w based on the LMP and Baby A was measuring 12w4d and Baby B was measuring 12w3d. My DS was over 9 lbs when he was born, so I think my babies will just be larger than average.

Thanks
I'm waiting for the blood test now. Hopefully I have a good results. I don't want to have any other test.

Like you Dotaf, my first baby girl was almost 8 pounds and half and she always measured bigger on the ultrasound. This one seems to be the same I went at 12 w and 1 day but it was already measuring 12 w and 6 days. I was a big baby too (9 pounds) and my husband was 10 pounds when he was born.
