The first scan is often referred to as the dating scan. At this stage of pregnancy, the sonographer is able to estimate when your baby is due (EDD) based on the baby's measurements.
The First Trimester Scan can be performed to assess the probability of certain major structural conditions. This pregnancy ultrasound scan confirms that baby’s heart is beating, and the number of babies you're expecting. Your baby’s head, brain, face, heart, stomach, bladder, hands and feet can be seen at this stage. We will also look at the placenta, amniotic fluid and umbilical cord.
All pregnant women in England are offered an ultrasound scan at around 8 to 14 weeks of pregnancy. This is called the dating scan. It's used to see how far along in your pregnancy you are and check your baby's development.
First trimester screening doesn't evaluate the risk of neural tube defects, such as spina bifida.
Because first trimester screening can be done earlier than most other prenatal screening tests, you'll have the results early in your pregnancy. This will give you more time to make decisions about further diagnostic tests, the course of the pregnancy, medical treatment and management during and after delivery. If your baby has a higher risk of Down syndrome, you'll also have more time to prepare for the possibility of caring for a child who has special needs.
For the ultrasound exam, you'll lie on your back. Our sonographer will place a transducer — a small plastic device that sends and receives sound waves — over your abdomen. The reflected sound waves will be digitally converted into images on a monitor.
The ultrasound doesn't hurt, and you can return to your usual activities immediately.
- confirm pregnancy
- check the fetal heartbeat
- determine the gestational age of the baby and estimate a due date
- check for multiple pregnancies
- examine the placenta, uterus, ovaries, and cervix
- diagnose an ectopic pregnancy (when the fetus does not attach to the uterus) or miscarriage
- look for any abnormal growth in the foetus
The sonographer will be able to tell you the results of the scan at the time of visit. You will also get a detailed ultrasound report to file with your maternity notes.
The scan results are NOT to be interpreted as results of a "stand-alone" test. The test results have to be interpreted after correlating with suitable clinical findings and additional supplemental tests/information. Your healthcare providers will explain the meaning of your tests results, based on the overall clinical scenario. Certain medications that you may be currently taking may influence the outcome of the test. Hence, it is important to inform your healthcare provider of the complete list of medications (including any herbal supplements) you are currently taking. This will help the healthcare provider interpret your test results more accurately and avoid unnecessary chances of a misdiagnosis.
