See active discussions on August Babies j Dating ultrasound revealed I am further along jillplusjohn wrote: I just had my dating ultrasound at 12w and the doctor revealed that Baby is measuring more like 13w! That was very exciting but I just had a few questions about that Is the 13w dating based on the measurements and development of the baby? Or is this indicating that the date of conception was actually earlier than what I first thought? Based on my calculations, 12 weeks pregnant was accurate since my LMP was actually 12 weeks ago, and I used an ovulation test while TTC, to time intercourse, and I pretty much could pinpoint what day I most likely conceived. Now the 13 week dating throws that all off and we would have conceived on a day where I was not ovulating. I know that this really doesn’t make a difference in my pregnancy and the baby and I probably won’t get a concrete answer anyhow. But I am such a calculated person and shedding some light on how a dating ultrasound works would be super!
Q&A: I want to know if I should trust the accuracy on an ultrasound to date a pregnancy.

But if you have a medium chance, you may be able to take steps to avoid heart disease based on the scan results. What Happens During the Scan? You will visit a hospital or clinic that has a CT scanner. Your doctor may ask you to avoid caffeine or smoking for up to 4 hours before the test.
The person who runs the scanner will put a few sticky patches on your chest. If you get nervous in closed or tight spaces, you can get medicine that will help keep you calm. You may also get medicine to slow your heart so they can take better pictures. Your head stays out of the tube at all times.

Ultrasound Scans Dublin Some Common Questions If you are wondering why you should have an early pregnancy scan , why not take a look at this video where one of our consultants, Dr. Shane Higgins, explains clearly the reasons for attending an early pregnancy scan — just click on: Especially if this is your first pregnancy, you may also be unsure as to when is the earliest you could have your first scan.
Normally this 1st trimester scan is undertaken from 6 to 12 weeks. These weeks refer to the gestational age of your baby, and what this means is that the date is taken from your last period. However we often recommend leaving this scan until after 7 weeks if possible, because at this stage we can normally get more accurate information at your scan.
Also this first pregnancy scan is when we should be able to see how many babies are in your uterus, for those of you who are pregnant with multiples. Of course you will want to know your estimated due date, and we can also give you this information at the early pregnancy scan. Sometimes baby could be located in the fallopian tubes and this can be determined at this time.
This is called an ectopic pregnancy. The video features another of our consultants, Professor Fionnuala Mc Auliffe. To see it please click on nuchal fold scan video. This is the spot which is called the nuchal fold. The sonogram can measure this fluid between the 11 to 14 week period, and it may make the fetus?
What Is an Ultrasound?
Doppler Ultrasound The doppler shift principle has been used for a long time in fetal heart rate detectors. Further developments in doppler ultrasound technology in recent years have enabled a great expansion in its application in Obstetrics, particularly in the area of assessing and monitoring the well-being of the fetus, its progression in the face of intrauterine growth restriction, and the diagnosis of cardiac malformations.
Doppler ultrasound is presently most widely employed in the detection of fetal cardiac pulsations and pulsations in the various fetal blood vessels. The “Doptone” fetal pulse detector is a commonly used handheld device to detect fetal heartbeat using the same doppler principle. Blood flow characteristics in the fetal blood vessels can be assessed with Doppler ‘flow velocity waveforms’.
Diminished flow, particularly in the diastolic phase of a pulse cycle is associated with compromise in the fetus.

Understanding the signs and symptoms of pregnancy is important because each symptom may be related to something other than pregnancy. Some women experience signs or symptoms of pregnancy within a week of conception. For other women, pregnancy symptoms may develop over a few weeks or may not be present at all.
Below is a listing of some of the most common pregnancy signs symptoms. If you have been sexually active and experiencing any of the following symptoms it is important to take a pregnancy test. Implantation bleeding can be one of the earliest pregnancy symptoms. About days after conception, the embryo implants itself into the uterine wall. Some women will experience spotting as well as some cramping.

The first trimester is months one, two, and three of your pregnancy. Below are scan pictures taken during the early weeks of pregnancy. Measurements taken at these early scans will help to; confirm a pregnancy, date the pregnancy and to see any problems that may occur in the pregnancy low lying placenta, twins etc. Scans in early pregnancy are usually performed in the first trimester around 12 weeks. You may have a earlier scan, if you are experiencing pain or bleeding for example or unsure of LMP dates.
Transabdominal ultrasound TAU and also the transvaginal ultrasound TVU are valuable diagnostic tools in obstetrics and gynecology. Transabdominal ultrasound will provide a panoramic view of the abdomen and pelvis and is noninvasive, whereas transvaginal ultrasound provides a more limited pelvic view and requires insertion of a probe into the vagina. Transabdominal ultrasound cannot reliably diagnose pregnancies that are less than 6 weeks gestation. Prompt diagnosis made possible by transvaginal ultrasound can, therefore, result in earlier treatment.
It is recommended that all pregnant women have a scan in the first trimester, to establish the date when the baby is due, check the number of babies also the position of the placenta. First trimester ultrasonic scans may show ‘soft’ markers for chromosomal abnormalities, such as the absence of fetal nasal bone or an increased fetal nuchal translucency back of the neck to enable detection of Down syndrome fetuses. While your sonographer takes measurments they will explain what you are looking at.
It may not be easy for you to make out what you are seeing on the screen in the early scans.

The anatomy scan is a level 2 ultrasound, which is typically performed between 18 and 22 weeks.

Since the technician will be concentrating on the screen, they may or may not talk you through the examination.
A nuchal scan or nuchal translucency (NT) scan/procedure is a sonographic prenatal screening scan to detect cardiovascular abnormalities in a fetus, though altered extracellular matrix composition and limited lymphatic drainage can also be detected.
Ultrasonography of the cervix[ edit ] Fetus at 14 weeks profile Obstetric sonography has become useful in the assessment of the cervix in women at risk for premature birth. A short cervix preterm is undesirable: This includes checking the status of the limbs and vital organs, as well as sometimes specific tests for abnormalities. Some abnormalities detected by ultrasound can be addressed by medical treatment in utero or by perinatal care, though indications of other abnormalities can lead to a decision regarding abortion.
Perhaps the most common such test uses a measurement of the nuchal translucency thickness “NT-test”, or ” Nuchal Scan “. Ultrasound may also detect fetal organ anomaly. Usually scans for this type of detection are done around 18 to 23 weeks of gestational age called the ” anatomy scan “, “anomaly scan,” or “level 2 ultrasound”.
Some resources indicate that there are clear reasons for this and that such scans are also clearly beneficial because ultrasound enables clear clinical advantages for assessing the developing fetus in terms of morphology, bone shape, skeletal features, fetal heart function, volume evaluation, fetal lung maturity,  and general fetus well being. Soft markers are variations from normal anatomy, which are more common in aneuploid fetuses compared to euploid ones.
These markers are often not clinically significant and do not cause adverse pregnancy outcomes. Randomized controlled trials have followed children up to ages 8—9, with no significant differences in vision, hearing, school performance, dyslexia, or speech and neurologic development by exposure to ultrasound. Food and Drug Administration FDA of milliwatts per square cm  is well under the levels used in therapeutic ultrasound , but still higher than the milliwatts per square cm range of the Statison V veterinary LIPUS device.
One randomized controlled trial, however, came to the result of a higher perinatal death rate of normally formed infants born after 24 weeks exposed to Doppler ultrasonography RR 3. Their work had been supported by U.
