Hello, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das

Look, the Ultrasound findings are indicative of some doubts about the viability of the fetus.

For confirmation, you have to do the ultrasound scan once again after 10 days.

The next step is depending upon this ultrasound scan.

You should also consult with your treating doctor.
