1. Pregnancy date: it may vary during every ultrasound you do. But at 14-15 week after doing your anomaly scan if it's more or less than 10 days of your menstrual expected date than you should consider it. Otherwise your expected date with LMP should be considered. According to 1/6/16 your due date is 8/3/17.
2. NT scan must be done between 11-14 weeks to rule out high risk of Down's syndrome and other trisomies.
3. Heart rate may vary and initial age it's high Upto 180-190 than decrease and settled but no any relationship with sex of fetus..
Thanks for question.
