Yep, I think 20 weeks is their preference due to size, but I wouldn't think 2 weeks would be a deal-breaker. I think they look at the standard measurements for 20 weeks but they will, of course, vary.

I really wouldn't skip the anatomy scan. We opted out of many tests with DS (and will with this one too), including the early u/s series looking for chromosomal and genetic disorders. But the anatomy scan tells so much about the baby's organ functions and developmental progress that I feel it's imperative. We also did not find out what the sex was, so it was all business.
