By 5 weeks from the first day of your LMP on scan it should be possible to see a pregnancy sac usually with a yolk sac present.
Then by 6-7 weeks there should be a fetal pole and fetal heartbeat present.
The age of the fetus is determined by measuring Crown Rump Length (CRL), this means the measurements are taken from the top of the baby’s head to its bottom, from this measurement we can work out how many weeks and days pregnant you are.
An Early Pregnancy Scan, also called a Viability Scan or Dating Scan from 6 weeks can usually determine whether there is a heartbeat and will give reassurance that all is well.
We offer a specialised scanning service relating to all aspects of early pregnancy whether it is for reassurance or because there has been bleeding, pain or a history of early pregnancy complications such as miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.
Please be aware that if your pregnancy is not progressing as planned or if an abnormality is detected during the scan, the results will be discussed with you immediately following your scan and a plan of action advised.
If the pregnancy is very early then it is usually necessary to do an internal (vaginal) scan.
