First-trimester screening is a prenatal test. It is conducted to get early information about a baby's risk of certain chromosomal conditions. It can detect conditions like Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and extra sequences of chromosome 18 (Trisomy 18).
It is usually conducted in two steps:
- Blood test
- Followed by USG
Initially, a blood test is conducted to ascertain the levels of two pregnancy specific substances in the mother's blood. The blood is tested for pregnancy associated plasma protein and human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). Thereafter, a USG is done to find out the size of the clear space in the tissue that is present at the back of the foetus’s neck.
The screening is done between weeks 11 and 14 of pregnancy. The doctor is able to gauge the risk of your baby having Down syndrome or Trisomy 18 by using your age and results of the test. This screening is quite helpful and can guard you against deadly consequences in the future. Down syndrome is known to cause impairments in the mental and social development of the child. Trisomy 18 gets often fatal by age 1. However, first screening doesn’t find out the risk of neural tube defects.
It is the first screening done in pregnancy. It can be done before any other screening. Thus, the results are known at an early stage. You will get time to think about the future consequences can help you in deciding your course of action and the decision to either continue or terminate the pregnancy. You will be ready to know and decide whether you will be able to live and take care of a baby with special needs. You can conduct other screenings later in pregnancy. You must know that first-trimester screening is treated as being optional. It can detect the risk and cannot tell you whether your baby has the problems in real or not.
Often women get worried about the test and it’s after effects. However, there is no need to worry. It will not harm your pregnancy. The foetus remains untouched and safe during the screening. It will not lead to any miscarriage or any other complication.
A practitioner will collect your blood by inserting a needle into your veins. The blood is then sent for testing to the lab. You can resume your usual daily activities. The ultrasound will need you to lie on your back on a table and the technician will put a transducer on your abdomen. The sound waves will be changed into digital images that the technician will refer to. You can get back to your normal routine as soon as the test is over.
In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Hello. I am Dr Sheela Suhag Seharawat, Mentor Diet Clinic. I have been in this field since eleven years meeting a different kind of people with different kind of medical issues. Today I’m going to discuss a few topics jaise logon ko tension hoti hai ki summer mein hume kya food stuff include karni chahiye jisse we stay fit and healthy.
So uske liye mein aapko kuch points batana chahoongi. Jaise sabse pehle summer ka naam aate he humare dimaag mein aata hai liquids. So we have to be particular about liquid intake. Aap ko paani intake jitna ho sake increase karna hoga, ten to twelve glasses intake karna hoga, jaise aap dehydration se bach sake. Summer aane par hume kuch bhi khaane par bloated sa feel hota hai ya hum heavy feel karte hai. Toh jo bhi hum meal lete hai hume dhyaan rakhna chahiye ki who light ho aur nutritive ho. Hume fried food avoid karna chahiye kyunki fried food heat generate karta hai jisse aapko aur jyada heat lagti hai. Toh hume light meals in small intervals include karna chahiye. Kuch logon ko lagta hai ki hume chilled water intake karni chahiye but woh avoid karna chahiye. Hume lagta hai ki chalo hum ekdum se thanda paani pee rahe hai toh who hume kaafi cooling effect de raha hai but hume iss cheez ko avoid karna chahiye kyunki who aapko sirf kuch time ke liye aapko cooling effect de raha hai par who andar jaake aap ke blood vessels ko constrict karta hai jisse aapke body se jo heat bahar nikalni chahiye woh usko thora stop kar deta hai. Hume ekdum se chilled liquid ya jyada thanda paani avoid karna chahiye. Plus hume aerated drinks jisko hum cold drinks bolte hai aur caffeinated things, chai coffee, ko humare diet mein thora restrict karna chahiye because isse aapke body mein dehydration ke chances jyada hote hai kyunki who aapka diuretic work karta hai. Isiliye hume cold drink aur caffeinated things, chai coffee, kum se kum karna chahiye.
Second thing, hum iss cooling ke liye jow ka paani include kar sakte hai. Jow is really good for summer time because of aapke body se water retention bhi nikalta hai aur aapko cooling effect deta hai. Hume thori jo fatty things hai, fried things hai, sweets hai, wo hume apne diet mein thora kum karna dena chahiye. Aap one teaspoon tulsi seeds agar apne diet mein include kar sakte ho. Liquid ke upar sprinkle karke use karke you can use so that is very good in summer jo ki aapko cooling effect dega.
Yeh kuch points the aap ke liye, for further queries you can just connect with us via Lybrate, you can contact via phone, call us, or you can visit us at Diet Clinic, Sushantlok.
