What Do You See In an Early Pregnancy Scan in Milton Keynes?

by Window to the Womb Milton Keynes Baby Scn Clinic Milton Keynes
For your Early Pregnancy Scan in Milton Keynes, you must have a sufficiently full bladder. There is absolutely no need to be overstuffed. We recommend that you continue with your usual daily routine but refrain from emptying your bladder half an hour before the scan.

There is a slim probability that a transvaginal scan will be required to provide a clearer image. Certain patients prefer this kind of scanning since the image has a higher resolution, which improves the accuracy of the measurements and the clarity of the images. Please feel free to request this since it is complimentary. 

Ultrasound Early in Pregnancy to Determine Miscarriage

The ultrasound findings are compared to what is predicted for a pregnancy's gestational age. The gestational age is determined by the weeks since the previous menstrual period; however, this approach commonly assumes a 28-day cycle with ovulation on the 14th day. Many individuals have shorter or longer cycles and may not ovulate on the 14th day, which may impact the results of ultrasound throughout the pregnancy's development. 

For instance, if a woman has a 35-day menstrual cycle, she would most likely ovulate around the 21st day (because ovulation usually occurs two weeks before the menstrual period would begin). If they were pregnant and had an ultrasound scan six weeks after the end of their last menstrual cycle, their typically growing pregnancy would be measured at five weeks gestational age.

If this individual was unaware that they ovulated on the 21st day of their cycle, they may have worried unduly about suffering a miscarriage. The early ultrasound would indicate that the pregnancy is just five weeks old, yet the date of the last menstrual cycle would indicate that the pregnancy is six weeks old.
 
Is it possible for an ultrasound scan to do damage to me or my baby?

Although there are no known hazards to the baby or mother from having an ultrasound scan, it is important that you carefully decide whether or not to have the scan.

This is because the scan may reveal information that requires you to make more critical judgments. For instance, you may be given further testing, like amniocentesis, which may result in miscarriage.
