Could it be due to hormonal imbalance.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I have gone through your history and understand your concerns.
Spotting during first trimester of pregnancy is usually due to hormonal imbalance.
If spotting is associated with any pain,than it needs to be investigated.
You should go for NT scan because it is not harmful for your baby.
Hope found useful, feel free to ask more information.
Good luck.

Brief Answer:
Your NT report is normal.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for sending me your reports.
Your NT scan report is normal.
In first trimester pregnancy baby weight is around 14 kg( in your case twin pregnancy, so it is distributed between two).
You have to go for 2 nd level ultrasound at 19-24weeks of pregnancy.
Hope found useful.
Good luck.
