Your First Scan
“ Happiness is the first Pregnancy Ultrasound “
The first scan is usually during your early pregnancy, around 6 – 9 weeks is called the ‘early pregnancy’ or the ‘dating’ or the ‘viability’ scan.
- To confirm the location of the pregnancy, to find out whether it is a singleton/ multiple pregnancy,
- To confirm the presence of fetal heart activity
- To confirm the age of the pregnancy to allocate an estimated due date.
During an ultrasound your doctor or a skilled technician uses a plastic transducer to transmit high-frequency sound waves through your uterus. These sound waves send signals back to a machine that converts them into images of your baby.
