An ultrasound scan typcally takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and the images seen will determine whether a Trans-Vaginal ultrasound scan (internal) is needed.
Early Pregnancy Scans are normally performed trans-abdominally (through your tummy) however an internal (vaginal) scan may be required at earlier gestations ie 6-7 weeks to see all the necessary detail, or if your womb tilts backwards (retroverted).
We will always try to scan trans-abdominally first but if we need to do an internal scan then this will not be harmful in any way to the baby and would be discussed prior to having the scan.
– At this stage we can see a fetal heartbeat and the early separation of the embryo from the yolk sac.
We look at the heartbeat and measure the Crown Rump Length (CRL), this means the measurements are taken from the top of the baby’s head to its bottom.
