Maybe your positive pregnancy test and the fact that you’re pregnant haven’t settled in yet. That’s totally normal. An ultrasound can go a step further to confirm your pregnancy. We at Life Care Center are here to offer you more information about the importance of an ultrasound and how to get started. Whether you’re thinking of adoption, abortion, or parenting, receiving an ultrasound is essential to know what’s next. Move forward with clarity in your pregnancy journey.

How Does An Ultrasound Work?

An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves to reveal images of your uterus and the fetus. The ultrasound tech uses a gel to reduce static between your skin and the transducer (the sensing device) to get a clear picture.

The first ultrasound is normally done during the first trimester to confirm pregnancy. Once you have done that and if you decide to continue your pregnancy, a second ultrasound is normally done in the second trimester, if no possible complications occur. If there is a problem that arises, additional ultrasounds and MRIs will be recommended.

Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?

Ultrasound has the great ability to show you more details about your pregnancy. It brings clarity about the growth and development of your pregnancy. An ultrasound can evaluate potential problems and confirm a diagnosis as well. The top three things an ultrasound does is:

  1. Reveals the gestational age (how far along you are)
  2. Shows the location of the pregnancy
  3. Confirms if it’s a viable pregnancy or not
