3) I have a controllable pain in lower abdomen, is that an issue?
User:Hello, How r u?
Doctor:I am fine, thank you.
Doctor:NT scan is performed around 10-12 weeks time frame.
User:Hope u went through my concern?
Doctor:since you are already 12 weeks pregnant, I would recommend you not to wait for long.
