Integrated Screen w/o NT Scan?

Hello, all. I'm 37 and will be 38 when I give birth. I'm currently 11 wks.5 days. At my last appointment, I had the first of two blood tests for the integrated screen. I asked my doctor about the NT scan, but he said that the results of the 2 blood tests (in 1st and 2nd trimester) are combined with the age factor, they are just as accurate as if the NT scan is done. But I've read otherwise in my books, including WTE..

Has anyone ever just had the 2 blood tests w/o the NT scan? I'm really nervous about all this. I won't even get any results until AFTER the 2nd blood draw. I do have a Level II ultrasound appointment set up for August.

Thanks for any help you might be able to provide!

That is odd, especially since the NT scan has to be done between 11 to 14 weeks. I had it done as part of the routine testing, but I didn't have the evasive testing done since everything was looking good. I was 35 when I got pregnant btw. If I were you, just for my own peace of mind, I would ask that the NT scan be done. You need to bring these concerns to your doctor so he can set your mind at ease.
