Brief Answer:
DO NT SCAN TEST ON THIS SATURDAY.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for writing to us. Followings are my comments:

1) Best time for NT scan is between 12th to 13th weeks of gestational age. You should undergo the test on Saturday. It will be more worthwhile.

2) As your previous scan and other reports are NORMAL, you shouldn't be worried much. Just enjoy your pregnancy.

3) You should stay free from stress/ tension/ depression for better baby health. Do regular Meditation, Yoga, Pranayama to divert your mind. You can talk with your close friends or husband to resolve family issue.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion if you don't have any other query.

Wish your good health and successful motherhood.

Regards,
Dr S Patra
