My SIL had her proper Nuchal scan with the properly trained person and her Nuchal thickness came back as 1.8mm so perfectly normal. She still has to wait for the blood results but will know on Tuesday. Mr Beattie at the clinic told her that the NHS sonogropher wasn't trained to do the scan and should never have told her the result (she said it was 4mm) and certainly shouldn't have said it was the thickest one she had seen all year. Totally unprofessional. I wonder if SIL should maybe put in a complaint - I would. Though she says she doesn't want to risk being scanned by the same woman after she's complained. I am so so pleased for her and so so angry at the NHS for being so stupid. Hopefully she can now get on with enjoying her pregnancy.
