Answer: Dear even I did not get it done and no one in my family. Usually it is done if there is a history of down syndrome in the family. The doctor may ask to do in 3d and 5d if the nasal bone is not clearly seen which is considered as an indicator of down syndrome. This was explained to me by my gynae. Hope it helps.
