Your Complete Guide On Early Pregnancy Scans

by Olivia Clare Writter, Blogger
The moment you find out the blue lines on your pregnancy test kit, you are overwhelmed with joy. But, did you know that to get full confirmation of your pregnancy, you need to get a sonography from an ultrasound baby scan clinic


To get complete viability check and reassurance of your baby, you need to get early pregnancy scans. Early pregnancy scans are baby scans that are carried out during the first trimester of pregnancy. Early pregnancy scans are made available from 6+ weeks of your pregnancy. These baby scans are crucial as they provide a thorough report of the embryo so if you’re a pregnant woman do not skip your early pregnancy scan appointments at any rate. There’s one thing to note down here. All early pregnancy scans are conducted trans-vaginally after getting the consent of the expecting mother.

Today, let’s discuss the different kinds of early pregnancy scans in brief.

Viability Scan

In a viability scan, the sonographer detects single or multiple pregnancies, intrauterine pregnancy, and examines the ovaries and pelvic area. The viability shows if the pregnancy is and will progress normally in the future.

Available from 6+ weeks

Dating Scan

Dating Scan is done to confirm the gestational age of the pregnancy. The scan also checks the fetal heartbeat. Apart from that, you get other vital diagnostic information about your baby – EDD (Estimated Date of Delivery).

Available from 8 Weeks to 12+6 weeks.


Reassurance Scan

As the name suggests, reassurance scans provide extra peace of mind to the would-be mothers. In a reassurance scan, you get the following confirmation:

    • Confirmation of an intrauterine pregnancy
    • Confirmation of single or multiple pregnancies
    • Confirmation of fetal heartbeat
    • Confirmation of Estimated Date of Delivery
 
Available from 12 – 15 weeks.


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many ultrasound baby scan clinics in Peterborough are taking special measures for hygiene. Only visit your baby scan clinic for mandatory ultrasound baby scans, like early pregnancy scans. After your USG scanning session, you’ll be provided with a Fetal Health Check Scan Report which you are supposed to preserve it for future reference.
