Customer Question

Hi,
I found out yesterday that I was 12 +6 weeks pregnant with twins. We have been advised to attend an ultrasound every two weeks and that they are extremely important and should not be missed. We had already booked an international trip to Kuwait & Saudia Arabic 2 weeks in December. This means that I will miss my 20 week and 22 week scan and the ultrasound specialist felt that the trip should be cancelled. Is it safe for me to do international travel with a multiple pregnancy and should I stay back for the scans? Your help will be much appreciated!

Hi, I am privileged to help you get more understanding about your current concern. I can also provide you with additional services, such as live telephone or Skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.

A few questions first to clarify your concern:

1. Are you in good health? Any medical problems

2. Are you taking prenatal vitamins?

3. Are you having any cramping, spotting?

4. Were there any abnormalities detected on this 12+ wk ultrasound (US)? IF so what?
