An ultrasound scan can confirm a viable intrauterine pregnancy. After a positive pregnancy test, our nurse/sonographer can perform an ultrasound scan of limited scope. She is looking for three things:
- Is there a pregnancy in the uterus?
- What is the age of the fetus?
- Is a heartbeat visible (by 5 weeks 3days gestation)?
You may be eligible for an ultrasound scan at no cost to you.
