12 weeks pregnant mother

Question: What are the tests that are performed during pregnancy and when are the tests done?

1 Answers
Answer: Genetic screening can help diagnose the potential for certain genetic disorders before birth. First trimester screening is a combination of fetal ultrasound and maternal blood testing. This screening process can help determine the risk of the fetus having certain birth defects. Second trimester prenatal screening may include several blood tests called multiple markers. These markers provide information about the risk of having a baby with certain genetic conditions or birth defects. You may have ultrasounds performed at different times in your pregnancy to check for fetal growth, estimate your due date and look for any structural abnormalities in the baby. Additional testing during pregnancy may include amniocentesis, CVS,  glucose testing and Group B strep culture.

Question: What are the tests to be done during second trimester?
Answer: Hi. Anomaly scan (ultrasound level II). You'll have this scan between 18 and 20 weeks. By then, your baby will be more active, which means that the CRL will not be as accurate. So instead, the ultrasound doctor will check your baby's head circumference (HC), abdominal circumference (AC) and thigh bone (femur) length (FL).
