Following a positive pregnancy test it is important to have an ultrasound. Here at Pregnancy Resource Center, we offer a limited obstetrical ultrasound performed by a sonographer.
Ultrasounds are performed to:
- Confirm pregnancy
- Detect fetal heartbeat
- Determine fetal age
- Determine due date
Determine location of the pregnancy (intrauterine/ectopic)
What is obstetrical ultrasound?
An ultrasound, or sonogram, is a routine part of prenatal care in which the sonographer is able to see inside the body. A hand-held transducer is pressed against the skin and sends high-pitch sound waves that humans are unable to hear. The sound waves bounce off internal organs and structures and are received by the transducer. The machine constantly translates the sound waves into images on the monitor. This allows real-time viewing of what is happening inside the body, including viewing fetal heartbeat and movements.
There is no special preparation for your ultrasound exam. A specially trained sonographer will ask you a few questions relating to your pregnancy before the exam begins.
Most ultrasounds are fast and easy, with little discomfort.
