Extremely Large Nuchal Fold on first trinester screening

Went to perinatologst 1 week ago for first trimester nuchal screening and nuchal fold measured 9mm. Dr said wasnt hopeful that I would have a normal baby. Went back yesterday to have amnio and they said my membranes had not fused yet so too early for amnio but the nuchal fold had shrunk to 5mm. Normal is still 2.9mm and i have amnio scheduled for next week. Has anyone had this happen and things come out normal? Help

  • I've never had those results...mine were all normal...but if its going down that has to be a good sign.
