NT testing ... never heard of it and now I'm wondering?

So I have a family history of heart failure (uncle died at 21 days) of unknown heart condition. Should I ask my doctor to order this testing? He has never mentioned it before and he is aware of my medical history ...I'm 11 weeks pregnant and I know I would need to get this done soon.

  • Honestly, if you are worried ask about the testing, it won't tell you anything, just that there is an abnormality. They would want to do a follow up test to find out what is wrong. And IMO, those tests are useless, I would keep my baby regardless. Your ob knows your family history, so they would most likely want a more detailed u/s of the heart.
