AFP U/S and Anantomy U/S
I missed an AFP Ultrasound at 13weeks. Is it okay to take that test at 16 weeks? Can i take an Anatomy at 18weeks? I have an International travel at 18weeks so wanted to take Annatomy before i fly just to make sure the baby is fine n healthy. And also my husband and i have diff blood group. I did not take any shot for that yet as i did not see any spotting. My first baby. Am 14 weeks now. Should i get it before i fly just in case if i bleed during travel??

Hello, At 16th week, ultrasound will not be able to rule out the nuchal translucency and other abnormalities but at 18 weeks, anatomy ultrasound will identify most of the anomalies in your baby. You can go for a quadraple marker test at 15-16 weeks.

The ultrasound for NT/NB is best taken between 11-13 weeks. You can still take it but it won't be as sensitive. You can undergo quadruple marker at 16 weeks. If you are negative blood group and husband is positive, in an uncomplicated pregnancy, you will be given the shot at 28 weeks. You can do anomaly scan at 18 weeks. You don't need to take the shot just now.
