Answer: hi dear! so generally if the nasal bone is not present its considered abnormal dear. but we should wait and see still the nasal bone does not develop in your next scan then you will have to do amniocentesis(a procedure where a small amount of fluid is taken from your amniotic fluid that surrounds the baby and it is seen for any abnormality as it contains the fetal cells ) which will confirm if there is any problem with the baby. so dont stress right now it will show by the next scan dont worry . take care dear.

Question: I'm 6week pregnant... But in ultrasound scan they said there is no heartbeat .I'm scared
Answer: Hi dear,  congratulations on your pregnancy.  The baby's heart starts to beat at around 6 weeks. You may be able to hear – and see – your baby's heart beat for the first time when you're about 8 weeks pregnant if you have an early ultrasound exam. Otherwise, you'll probably first hear it with a fetal Doppler at a regular prenatal care visit. Don't get scared and wait for 2 weeks and get the ultrasound done again. Hopefully heart beat will be there.
