How Much Time Does A Pregnancy Ultrasound Procedure Take?
A pregnancy ultrasound procedure takes approximately 15-30 minutes, and you'll be able to receive your accurate results immediately.
How to Prepare For A Pregnancy Ultrasound?
One hour before your pregnancy ultrasound, drink three to four 8 oz glasses of water. Even though it may get uncomfortable, don't use the bathroom. A full bladder is very important in helping the technologist to get an accurate image of the fetus and your pelvic organs clearly and conduct a precise baby ultrasound.
What Is A Pregnancy Ultrasound?
A pregnancy ultrasound (sonogram) is a noninvasive, radiation-free procedure that creates an image of your baby developing in the uterus using high-frequency sound waves. Depending on your pregnancy term and fetus position, you will have a chance to see your baby's body parts, determine your baby's gender and much more.
When Should Pregnancy Ultrasounds Be Performed?
Pregnancy ultrasounds can be performed at any point during your pregnancy as a part of your routine prenatal care. Most women are advised to have their first pregnancy ultrasound during the second trimester starting at 13th up to 23rd weeks of pregnancy. However, some women prefer to get their first pregnancy ultrasound earlier during their first trimester prior to week 12. Ideally, you should talk to your gynecologist, who will provide you with the tailored timeline for your pregnancy ultrasounds, based on your pregnancy conditions.
