No worries. Go for a detailed anatomy scan for the fetus. If needed a genetic sonogram.

Hello, Yes you should for a triple market test. There will be no complications of missing this test. This test analyzes how likely an unborn baby is to have certain genetic disorders. The exam measures the levels of three important substances in the placenta: alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) estriol.
