Question: What happens at an early pregnancy scan?

Youll be asked to lie on your back and reveal your tummy. The sonographer will put ultrasound gel on your tummy, which makes sure there is good contact between the machine and your skin. The sonographer passes a probe over your tummy and a picture of the baby will appear on the ultrasound screen.

What is the earliest you can have a pregnancy scan?

An Early Pregnancy Scan (sometimes also called a Viability Scan or Dating Scan) provides reassurance in this very early stage of your pregnancy. A pregnancy can be seen on scan from as early as 6 weeks from the first day of your last period (LMP). We should be able to see a heartbeat from 6 weeks.

How many weeks does a miscarriage usually happen?

A miscarriage is most likely to occur within the first 3 months of pregnancy, before 20 weeks gestation. Only 1% of miscarriages occur after 20 weeks gestation.

Can you see twins at 5 weeks?

You can guess as much as you want, but until you have the ultrasound examination, its all just speculation, says Dr. Grunebaum. Luckily, most mamas dont have to wait long to know for sure. Today, twins can usually be diagnosed as early as six to seven weeks of the pregnancy, he adds.
