My baby was confirmed as Down's Syndrome from a CVS with nuchal fluid levels of 8.7mm. What is the impact of nuchal fluid levels (NT) on abnormalities? What do high NT levels really mean for a baby with Down's?

An increased nuchal measurement up to 13 weeks and 6 days can be linked to Down's without there necessarily being any abnormality with baby. However, the larger the nuchal measurement, the higher the risk of baby having a major heart problem or other structural problem too, and the higher the risk of baby dying in the womb during pregnancy. A nuchal measurement of 8.7mm is a very large measurement and the chance of baby surviving to term would be slim.
