How accurate are 12 week dating scans Erotic sex chat rooms for free
Sometimes a trans-vaginal examination shows that your pregnancy is less advanced than expected.The earlier the ultrasound is done, the more accurate it is at estimating the baby's due date.For transvaginal ultrasound you can have an empty bladder Dating scans are usually recommended if there is doubt about the validity of the last menstrual period.For example if you a tiny sac can be seen in the uterus, but the baby and its heart beat may not be detected yet.the baby and its heart beat can be detected relatively easily with trans-abdominal and trans-vaginal examination.This is presuming that the pregnancy is actually at this stage of development.Dating scans are the most accurate way of predicting your due date.The whole point of the scan is to work out how many weeks pregnant you are.
If traveling to the hospital is a problem and you don't want the inconvenience then you could ring your midwife to discuss it with her again.the midwife gives you a due date from your last period date however a date scan is more accurate as they measure the size of the baby but can be a week or so out thats why people go overdue by 10 days, hope this helps as im not a specialist xx Hi Vicky Are you worried about a dating scan you have had or are due to have Vicky? I am pretty sure ill only be 8 weeks pregnant with the date i have been given. I was given a date, but had to have an internal scan.Generally scans are very accurate, but they are not 100% perfect, so there is always a small margin for error (generally up to about a week, but this varies). It turned out to be very accurate as my daughter was born 9 hours after that date! I had a scan at 6 weeks (was on honeymoon at the time and fainted in Turkey) the date they gave me was 19th lo was born 20th however my 12week scan due date was 14th !However, if all is going well in this pregnancy, your particular hospital may not offer the scan.Ask your GP if you want to have one anyway for extra reassurance, as she may be able to refer you.
