Welcome and congrats on your pregnancy!
I just turned 38, and had babies 2 and 3 one month before my birthday. I had the NT scan done just for 1) peace of mind and 2) help me prepare if needed. Plus I wanted to avoid an amnio or CVS. And even though there are false positives, and does not give you a 100% answer, I still wanted to have at least my risk level assessed to determine if I should go forward with more invasive testing like amnio or CVS.
As previous poster mentioned, you may have already missed the window to do the NT scan since you are already in your 2nd tri.
