13 weeks pregnant mother

Question: My baby's nuchal translucency NT value is 1.6 mm ...and my age is 24 at conception. But my OB prescribed double marker test... is nt value normal?

1 Answers
Answer: hi dear! double marker test is done together with the nt scan . it will check for chromosomal abnormalities. so nt value is perfectly fine. but we also have to check other values like beta hcg and papp-a (pregnancy associated plasma protein a) these come under the dual marker test. so do these test . take care! goodluck!

Answer: If doctor advices to go through NIPT better to go through as only in that way you will be sure that baby is fine and has no any genetic anomaly. NIPT is not harmful at all. I guess doctor suggested blood test from which fetus DNA will be extracted and examined. It's not harmful nor for you or for baby.
