Early in the pregnancy ultrasound can confirm the pregnancy and as early as week 6-7 heartbeats can bee seen. As the date of last menstruation some times can be a bit unsure and the actual length of the pregnancy is not always according to the expected length, we recommend you to come, at the earliest, from week 7+0. This is to avoid you coming too soon to confirm the heart beating.
From week 8+0 you can measure CRL (crown rump length) a bit more precisely and by that estimate the length of the pregnancy.
From week 9 the fetus starts looking a bit more babyish as you can clearly see a head, body, arms and legs.
The ultrasound is sometimes preformed abdominally and sometimes vaginally, depending on what gives the best image.
We print you pictures, and you will also get a link to your mobile phone with pictures and short film-cuts.
We have plenty of time for information / answering any questions you may have, as well as referring to SUS if you are entitled to a 12-week ultrasound.
