Incidence of chromosomal anamolies increase if maternal age>35 years you should get a usg done at 12 weeks and level 2 usg done at 20 weeks. Double marker test done at 12 weeks and triple market test at 16 weeks to rule out any congenital anamoly incidence of gestational diabetes and Pregnancy induced hypertension also increases with age.
