A quick decision when it comes to pregnancy is not ideal, as it takes time to go about important steps to pregnancy confirmation.
An ultrasound is an essential step in confirming your pregnancy. No one can pressure you into making a quick decision. Take the time you need to determine where your pregnancy stands and what all your options are.
The Ultrasound Process
An ultrasound is a simple and pain-free imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce an image of the inside of your uterus.
During an ultrasound, the sonographer or ultrasound tech will apply a gel-like substance to your abdomen that helps transmit sound waves. Next, a small device called a transducer is rubbed over the gel which records the echoes of the sound waves and helps create the image you can see on a monitor.
Should I Get An Ultrasound?
Yes! An ultrasound is vital to determine what choices you have and it can also alert you to any complications. It is a necessary step of the pregnancy verification process, as it’s the only way to verify three different aspects of your pregnancy, including:
- The viability of your pregnancy (it’s healthy and growing)
- The location of your pregnancy (it’s growing within the uterus)
- The gestational age (how far along you are)
We at Coastal Choices Women’s Clinic offer limited ultrasounds to better inform you about your pregnancy so you can get the clarity you’re needing.
