Brief Answer:
Please upload the double test report, uterine notching present

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
I have reviewed the reports.
The ultrasound report shows a normal fetus with nuchal transluscency within normal range. The nasal bone is also normal.
However, there are notches seen in both the uterine arteries which are high risk for developing hypertension, pre eclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction of fetus during further pregnancy.
Hence, treatment to prevent these complications should be started in the form of aspirin 75 tablets.
Moreover, regular follow up with doctor should always include blood pressure measurement and assessment of fetal growth.
At present, these uterine artery notches cause no harm to the fetus or pregnancy.
Please upload the report of Double markers also so that I can explain you further.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
