The sixth week of pregnancy is quite a milestone for you and your better half. Now your baby is grown to the size of a pea, the eyes and ears start developing, and the baby’s heart beats 100–160 times a minute. All this is indicated to you via some symptoms like morning sickness, mood swings, frequent urination and more, but to confirm that your pregnancy is healthy, a visit to your healthcare specialist is a must.
The presence of a new life healthily growing inside you is monitored via an early pregnancy scan also called viability or dating scan, where the doctor confirms the pregnancy, establish an estimated due date and gives you more accurate details on your pregnancy. You can trust Motherhood for this. Our experienced doctors guide you through the entire process of pregnancy from start to finish.
Pregnancy can be seen on a scan from the 6th weeks (halfway through your first trimester), but doctors recommend these early scans to be done between 7th to 12th weeks to ensure that your baby is normally growing inside you. It is recommended to all women suspecting pregnancy, and particularly if she has been experiencing pain or bleeding during her pregnancy.
Early pregnancy scans are done to confirm a pregnancy, to know when you conceived, to check if the baby is growing healthily and more.
Early pregnancy scans are done to confirm:
An early pregnancy scan can be done either transabdominally or transvaginally. Transabdominal early pregnancy scans are performed at 7-11 weeks of pregnancy and are done over the tummy. Commonly these are known as ultrasound scans and is carried out by one of the highly qualified professionals (sonographer) in the hospital.
During the process, the sonographer will ask you to drink a glass of water for a good view of your baby (as bladder helps the ultrasound echoes to reach your womb) and lie on the bed. Then he/she will apply some gel on your tummy and move a hand-held device (transducer) over the abdominal skin to pick up images of the baby. If the images are not clear, then the sonographer will ask you to go for a transvaginal scan.
During the transvaginal scan, the sonographer places a vaginal transducer comfortably inside your vagina (after lubricating this with plenty of gel). Once the transducer is inside, sound waves bounce off the internal organs and transmit pictures of your pelvis (inside of it) onto a monitor.
