Hello Doctor,

I would like to know the gender of the baby based on my reports. I am attaching NT scan, double marker test and TIFFA scan reports.
Please let me know the baby health and gender.
Kindly let me know if you need any other report to be attached.
Thank you in advance.

Brief Answer:
Baby is healthy.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
I have seen all the attached reports. The baby is normal with no detectable congenital anomalies. But all these scans do not suggest anything regarding the sex of the baby. It is illegal to detect the sex of the bay at 19 weeks of pregnancy and thus anything suggestive of sex of the baby is not indicated in any of the reports.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

I am attaching my scan reports (Document 8.pdf) taken at 24 weeks.
Let me know if anything can be found in these reports about the baby gender.
Also in the report it is advised for Fetal echocardiography.
Why is it suggested? Would like to know more why is it needed?

Brief Answer:
Fetal gender cannot be determined by this report.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing again.
I have seen 24 weeks scan also. The baby is normal but the fetal sex is not indicated in the report.
Fetal echo cardiography is suggested to rule out any cardiac defects in the baby. It is needed in high risk pregnancies to rule out any possible malformation in the baby. The scan is otherwise normal.
Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.
