Question: Im 12 week pregnant went 2nd ultrasound scan they said baby growth is normal but nasal bone is not visible, at 16th again repeat the scan nu said. Is it any big problem, i m very scared.
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.

Answer: Hello dear, nasal bone is the main part to know if baby has any abnormalities or not . Your nt scan range is normal so hopefully your blood test will also be normal but nothing can be said until the report came so stay positive everything will be fine ...
Question: Dr did my tiffa scan she said hypoplastic nasal bone which is 1.9mm at 20 weeks 5 days n Nt scan n dual marker report shows low risk dr .suggest me to do NIPT
hypoplastic nasal bone has association with chromosomal abnormalities and thus even if the nt scan and dual marker test was low risk, do NIPT to further exclude any chances of chromosomal abnormalities.
