8th November 2011 20:19Just looking for opinions. When I went to my GP last week, she mentioned that we could have a nuchal scan done. She even gave me a letter of referral for one. DH wants is to go ahead and have one but I really don't know if we need to? DH and I are both only 31 so theoretically I suppose fairly low risk. Would be interested to hear what opinions are. The second issue here though is that DH had expressed that if the nuchal scan indicated that our baby Is high risk, he doesn't know if he would want to carry on with the pregnancy and potentially have a child with chromosomal abnormalities. The thoughts of not seeing this pregnancy through for any reason breaks my heart I'd always wonder "what if our baby was perfect"...I know I'm getting ahead of myself but if we have the scan, we'll have to have had the conversation.
