1st Trimester Ultrasound (6-12 weeks)
Ultrasounds at this stage helps determine a lot of information about your pregnancy. First, we make sure your pregnancy is in the uterus and not ectopic or in the fallopian tubes. We can also determine how many babies you have. Additionally, we check the size of your baby to make sure its growth correlates to your due which ensures an accurate final due date. Finally, we want to check the viability of your pregnancy. In other words, we want to make sure the baby has a normal heart rate and rhythm.
