Best way to date a pregnancy is still based on the woman’s last menstrual periods. If she know it right, then you are going to get your expected due date absolutely right , especially if her periods have been regular. Now the question arises when you don’t remember your dates, or your periods are irregular or somehow you have missed and skipped the dates and not marked them out in your calendar. So then what to do? The first and the easiest method to do once you know that the pregnancy test is positive, to go ahead with an early pregnancy scan. Now this early dating ultrasound, it will be accurate to about plus to minus, 7 days. If the dating of the scan has to be done within the next trimester, that is after the third month and before the 7th month, then the accuracy reduces as the number of days the gestation increases. So the accuracy reduces to about plus to minus 2 weeks and towards the end it will further reduce down to plus minus 3 weeks. So that is why the dating scan is always the first scan which is the best.

You mentioned that you're about 24 weeks along, you had an early ultrasound when you were 6 weeks, and you weren't sure when your last period was. And that's probably why the doctor did an ultrasound, because there's 2 ways to figure out how far along a woman is. One is going off her previous cycle history. If a woman has had a history of regular periods, then they'll ask you what your last period date was. And if you're sure about it, then it's pretty easy to figure out how far along you are. But if a woman has irregular periods or you don't know when your period was, then an ultrasound is the best way to date your pregnancy. A fetus will grow at a pretty consistent rate during the first trimester, and so when they did the ultrasound at 6 weeks and figured that your baby was 6 weeks along, that's the best and most accurate thing that we can go by. In fact, if a baby starts to be either larger or smaller than they should be in the 2nd or 3rd trimester, a lot of times we ask, "Did she have an early ultrasound?", because that's the best way to figure out if our due dates are accurate. So because your due date was based on an early ultrasound, you can say that it's really accurate - as accurate as we can get. So you also had some questions about the extra weeks added on at the beginning of a pregnancy when you weren't actually pregnant. And this does get pretty confusing for a lot of people. So conception happens at the time you ovulate, when sperm an egg meet up. And ovulation usually happens about mid-cycle, or about 2 weeks after your period started. You won't find out you're pregnant until the time of your missed period, or 2 weeks after conception, but at that point, you're considered to be 4 weeks along. It's been 4 weeks since your last period, but the baby has actually only been growing for 2 weeks. So that's where it gets confusing. So the first week of the 40 week gestational period is actually the first week when you were having your period in the cycle that you actually got pregnant in. So that's all a little bit confusing, but just go with it since your doctor gave you an accurate due date based on an early ultrasound. Then you can pretty much say, "Yep, I'm due on October 21st. I sincerely hope the best for you during your pregnancy, and if you have any other questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

A lot of women have questions about their due date and how the doctor determined it. And it's usually done 1 of 2 ways. First of all, it's important to seek early prenatal care before 13 weeks gestation. And at that point, the doctor will ask you if you've had regular cycles in the past and when your last period happened. If you know what date that was and you've been regular in the past, then the doctor can pretty reliably calculate a due date off of that, because a woman is fertile for 6 days out of each cycle - 5 days leading up to ovulation and on the day of ovulation. And we know that because you had a period, you weren't pregnant at that point in time, so you got pregnant during that next cycle when you ovulated and egg and sperm met up. If you had irregular cycles in the past or you're not sure when your last period was, then the doctor may send you for an early ultrasound. And this is where they measure the size of the growing fetus, and look at growing structures, and determine your gestational age from that, because a fetus will grow at a very consistent rate during the 1st trimester. So if your baby is measuring 8 weeks, you're reliably 8 weeks along. Now there's also some confusion surrounding the amount of time the baby has been growing versus your gestational age. The entire gestational period is 40 weeks. However, a baby only grows for 38 out of those weeks, because the first 2 weeks of the gestational period are from the time of your first period till the time of ovulation and conception. So the baby is not actually growing for those first 2 weeks, so that confuses some people. They get caught up in the fact that the doctor told them they were 8 weeks, but the baby has only been growing for 6 - you're just 8 weeks gestation. We standardize it across the board. Now another commonly asked question is, "Will my due date change if my baby is measuring abnormally small or large later on in pregnancy?". Now I told you that in the 1st trimester, a fetus will grow at a very consistent rate, but thereafter, it can differ. And there are underlying causes that can make a baby be abnormally small or abnormally large, and those are the things that a doctor needs to consider - not changing the due date. So let's say, for example, that you have an ultrasound at 8 weeks, and the doctor knows reliably how far along you are, and what your due date is. Later on in the pregnancy, if you have an ultrasound at 28 weeks for whatever reason and the baby is measuring 32 weeks, they won't just change your due date. And there's a couple of reasons for that. Number 1, a doctor needs to consider underlying causes and decide if further investigation or treatment is necessary for that. And the 2nd is that if the doctor actually changed your due date and put you a month ahead, that's not going to change how much time the baby has spent growing in the womb, and their organs won't be fully mature when the baby is full-term. If you have more specific questions about your situation, don't hesitate to talk with your OB provider, and they'll be able to give you the best advice and information based on their knowledge of your situation. And if you have more questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

Many women notice that over the course of their pregnancy their baby seems to be either slightly smaller or slightly larger than where they should be for their current gestational age. They begin to wonder, does this affect my due date? This is a valid question and always should be brought to the attention of your OB provider. They can give you the best information depending on your circumstances. However, there are basic principles that will probably guide the answer that your OB provider is going to give you. Ultrasounds that are done in the early first trimester are very accurate - meaning, a fetus grows at a very consistent rate during the first trimester and the beginning of the second trimester. Any ultrasounds done at this time can accurately date your pregnancy. Let's say that you're having irregular periods and you called the doctor and said you had a positive pregnancy test. One of the first things they're going to want to do is do an ultrasound, because that can accurately date the pregnancy. If the fetus is measuring eight weeks at the time they're doing the ultrasound, then you're eight weeks along. That's what they'll base your due date off of. If you had an early ultrasound in your pregnancy, you can bet that your due date is pretty accurate. In the late second trimester, early third trimester, especially 28 weeks and beyond any ultrasound that is done on your baby will not affect your due date. If a baby is either larger or smaller than other issues need to be considered. If your baby is consistently measuring larger than usual that's called large for gestational age, or if a baby is measuring consistently smaller it's called small for gestational age. If it gets past a certain point it can even be called intrauterine growth restriction. That means there might be issues with the placenta and so it's not something to ignore, you don't just want to change the due date and assume that the baby is off, you need to pay attention to other pathological issues that might be causing the baby to be too small or too big. Again, I recommend talking with your doctor and they can give you the best information.

Usually the first day of the last menstrual period is the starting of the pregnancy. So we calculate the entire 40 weeks of pregnancy from then. But there are sometimes patients who do not remember their period date or their period are so irregular and they do not remember the actual date of the pregnancy and that is when these dating ultrasound helps. Through ultrasound you do the early pregnancy scan or the dating scan, where you can accurately know the date of the fetus and accordingly you can calculate the delivery date, which is usually accurate. So even if there is forgetting of the last period date, or irregular periods or wrong dates, at any point of time the early pregnancy dating scan can he us to find out the correct date and the age of the pregnancy and date the delivery and even if the delivery date may be a little earlier, we can still wait for the dating scan because that is where the accurate delivery date is. So ultrasound helps us in doing a dating scan, which can help us pick up the correct age and the date of the delivery of the fetus.
Human pregnancy is of total 40 weeks or 280 days, or in simple terms, 9 months and 7 days. Your expected date of delivery is calculated from the first date of your last period date. Now generally everyone ovulates after 2 weeks after your periods. So you immediately don’t become pregnant immediately as your periods starts. You become pregnant 2 weeks later. But it is very difficult to determine when the ovulation takes place for everybody. Ovulation can vary even for a regular cycle. What we know for certain is when the last periods starts. So we calculate the expected date of delivery from the first day of your last periods. So it is 9 months and 1 week. Ina regular cycle, your conception would have happened 2 weeks later. This is how even the ultrasound determines the expected date of delivery. So there is uniformity between the ultrasound date and the clinical date, because we know that the first 2 weeks, you are not pregnancy, but it is still taken into account keeping the pregnancy duration as 40 weeks.

You mentioned that you're 35 weeks now, but at your 33 week appointment, you were measuring 36 weeks, and you're wondering what implications this might have on the timing of delivery, and if, perhaps, your due date might be off. A fetus grows at a very consistent rate in the first trimester. So any early ultrasound that's done in the first trimester is the best way to date a pregnancy. This is usually only done if a woman has a history with irregular periods. So I'm not sure what your periods were like before you got pregnant, or if you had an early ultrasound, but if you have regular periods, or if you had an early ultrasound, then the due date that you were given is probably accurate. After about 20 weeks or so, if a baby starts to be abnormally large or abnormally small, we have to wonder if it's because of a pathological reason. So just one example is a diabetic mother. Diabetic mothers cook really large babies, and it goes back to the fact that if it's uncontrolled, then they have really high blood sugars. Now there are other reasons for having really large babies, but basically what it comes down to is this - when we do an ultrasound to determine the size of a baby, they measure the baby's head, their belly, and their leg bone, and they combine all of this together to determine a fetal weight. And ultrasounds are not 100% accurate when determining a baby's size. It can actually be plus or minus a pound. And so one of the biggest things to consider is you don't want to induce a baby early for an ultrasound that said they might be big, because they might actually be normal size, and then you you induce them early, and they have to go to the NICU for breathing problems, or they had jaundice, or they had eating problems - all things that are very common between 37 and 39 weeks. The best time for a baby to deliver is at 39 weeks because the risk of having breathing problems, jaundice, or eating problems is way lower. Even though 37 weeks is full term, 39 weeks is ideal. It's a sweet spot for when babies should be born, between 39 and 40. Now on the other end of the spectrum, there are things to consider if a baby is really, really big. Like if at full-term, they're measuring 4000 to 4500 grams on ultrasound, that's a big baby. And there are risks associated with laboring if you have a big baby. It usually means prolonged labor, they might not fit through your pelvis, it increases your chances of needing a C-section, or having uterine rupture, of having tears if the baby comes out, and shoulder dystocia - that's where the head comes out, but the shoulders are stuck because the baby is so big. So those are all complications that we are worried about if a baby is abnormally large. But your baby's growth might even out, and they might end up being a totally normal size. And I do recommend talking with your doctor, and based on their knowledge of the specifics of your situation, they'll be able to tell you what their plan is for you, whether that be early induction because your situation warrants it, or if it just be expected management, like seeing it when you go into labor on your own and hopefully getting you to that 39 week point at the very least. I hope the best for you and your baby, and if you have any other questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

My first ultrasound or scan for my first Candied Little Yam. This is where you get your official/estimated due date. I measured 10 weeks and 5 days, so they kept my due date at July 10, 2015. From what I gather on YouTube, most women get their first ultrasound when they or 6 weeks pregnant or 7 weeks pregnant. I don't even know if I knew I was pregnant that early. Sometimes in that early of a scan, the sonographer can barely make out the little embryo and sometimes can't find a heartbeat. I am glad I waited until 10 weeks, because I was almost out of the dangerous miscarriage zone, I was able to see the little baby's arms and legs flaying, and we could see a distinguishable heart beat. So fun. It definitely made the pregnancy more real to me. About Candied Little Yams Follow my pregnancy journey as I make the sweetest little candied yam in my tummy.

Fetuses grow at a very consistent rate in the 1st trimester. And actually, an ultrasound in the 1st trimester is the most accurate way to determine a woman's due date, because if your baby is measuring 9 weeks, then you're reliably 9 weeks along. But an ultrasound isn't always necessary to determine when you're due unless you had irregular cycles in the past or you don't remember when your last period was. So you may not have an ultrasound in the 1st trimester. You're first ultrasound might not be until 20 weeks when your doctor is going to check how your baby is growing and developing, make sure that everything looks good, they're going to check the placenta location and also the cervical length to make sure it's not shortening prematurely. And if everything is good, you might not have another ultrasound during the pregnancy. You'll notice that at each doctor's appointment past 20 weeks, the doctor pulls out a measuring tape and measures from your pubic bone to the top of your uterus, and this is called the fundal height, and it should match your gestational age in centimeters. So if your 26 weeks along, you should be measuring about 26 centimeters. If you start measuring abnormally small or large, then it's necessary to determine what's causing that, and an ultrasound will help the doctor determine what's going on. Is it the actual size of the baby? Is it the amount of the fluid surrounding the baby? Or maybe it's just how you're carrying the baby. If they determine that it's actually the size of the baby, they're abnormally small or large, and it's past 20 weeks, they have to consider underlying pathological conditions that would be contributing to that. So if a baby is measuring abnormally small, it's probably due to the fact that the placenta is not working like it should, and there's lots of different things that can cause that. But if the baby is abnormally large, an example of an explanation that can cause that is gestational diabetes, or maternal type 1 or type 2 diabetes that she knew about before she got pregnant. So after considering these things, they usually monitor more closely, track the growth of the baby, and see what's going on, but it rarely changes the due date. Now in your case, you have a large baby, and you're wondering if this is going to cause you to deliver early. And not necessarily. Again, the doctor will track the growth of your baby. If you were measuring really really big, or some women have so much fluid in their uterus that, basically, it makes them measure way over 40 weeks way earlier than when they're 40 weeks, and it's like their body thinks they're done. It's like a turkey timer - it pops, and so they go into preterm labor, because their body thinks it's just over - it's reached its max. So in some cases, it can cause preterm labor, but just a couple weeks' discrepancy usually doesn't cause that. And as for induction, doctors don't usually induce early for large babies, because babies do best when they're born at 39 weeks. So all the pros and cons of early delivery need to be weighed out. The mother's risk of having a C-section might be higher if she's cooking a very large baby, but if babies are born before 39 weeks, sometimes they have issues with breathing, jaundice, breastfeeding, and so they have to weigh all of this out and decide if the woman should actually deliver earlier or not. If it gets to the point that induction is actually medically indicated, we've reached the point where the risk of staying pregnant is higher than the risk of delivery. So again, it has to be weighed out. I recommend talking with your doctor, and based on their knowledge of your situation, they'll be able to give you the best advice about what their plan is for you, and give you more details about the size of your baby and what implications it might have on delivery. Good luck with everything, and if you have any other questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

A lot of women wonder when they conceived. And the conception date can only be estimated based on a reliable due date, and a reliable due date can be obtained 1 of 2 ways. First of all, a doctor or OB provider may ask the woman if she's had regular periods up to the point that she got pregnant. And if she was having regular periods, it's pretty easy to calculate a reliable due date based off of the woman's last menstrual period date. But if a woman's periods were all irregular, she's had issues in the past, the doctor may determine that an ultrasound is warranted early in the pregnancy. Fetuses grow at a very consistent rate during early pregnancy, and so if an ultrasound is done and the baby is measured to be 7 weeks and 2 days, then they are reliably 7 weeks and 2 days at that point, and the due date can be established based off of that baby's measurement. And again, this is a very reliable way to calculate a woman's due date. So based on either of these reliable methods, an approximate conception date can be calculated. And the reason why I say approximate is because conception happens when egg and sperm meet up, and this is only possible when a woman ovulates. And typically speaking, ovulation happens about mid-cycle or about 12 to 16 days before a woman's next period is going to begin, so it really depends on how long a woman's cycles are and when exactly she ovulated, and it's not always possible to know that. And add into the mix the fact that conception can result from intercourse had anytime during 5 days leading up to the day of ovulation as well as on the day of ovulation, so there's a 6-day window. So if a woman had intercourse 3 times during her 6-day window, it's impossible to determine which encounter actually resulted in pregnancy. So basically, all you can have is a window of time when conception was possible. And if you're actually wondering about this because you may have had intercourse with multiple partners close together, you're not sure who the father is, the only way to determine that is by doing a paternity test. You can't leave it up to timing of intercourse in relation to conception, because again, there's so many variables that go into that. So if you have more questions about paternity testing, talk with your OB provider and they can give you more information about it. If you have more questions in the future for me, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

You asked a really good question about due dates. Now due dates in general are calculated based on your last period if you're having normal cycles because you ovulate sometime usually mid cycle. So if you have a period and then don't have another one you know you got pregnant sometime during that month, but ovulation isn't a perfect science most women ovulate 12-16 days before their next period is going to start but some ovulate a little bit earlier then that and some a bit later and that can throw off their due date a little bit and the doctor might decide to change it if an ultrasound is done sometime early on in the first trimester when they see what size the baby is because a fetus grows at a pretty consistent rate during the first trimester and as they start to get bigger if any deviations are noticed from growth either the baby is smaller or larger in the second or third trimester its usually due to something else going on not the due date but sometimes a doctor will decide to change a due date if the baby is far off from the due date given by the woman's last period if they feel like its not due to a physiological problem. You asked another really good question about asking your doctor at your next appointment when they feel like you'll deliver and this is not a stupid question at all. Its one that every woman thinks about when she is pregnant. When am I going to have my baby? Now most women deliver sometime between 39 and 40 weeks. Sometimes you go over your due date. Very few women actually deliver though on their actual due date. When one of my patients dose I kind of tell them they have like a turkey timer and it popped and just worked out perfectly but most of the time it doesn't. Its going to be easier to determine when you might deliver once you get a little bit further along. For example if you started contracting and dilating a little bit when you were 34-35 weeks and your doctor might predict that you would deliver sooner rather then later but if your cervix is you know thick and closed or maybe just even one centimeter going into your 36-37 week mark then the doctor might say, yea you know you will probably make it to 38 or 39 weeks but there really is no good way to predict when a woman is going to have her baby. There is so many different factors that can play into it. Bottom line is though we would like you to get to full term which is at least 37 weeks the baby is due best if born at 39 weeks so if you can make it that far then that is best for your baby. But go ahead and ask you doctor and they can shed some more light on it based on your previous pregnancy history cause actually the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior. So you can ask your doctor at your next appointment but they may not be able to give you a good solid answer because we all wish we had a crystal ball but we don't have one unfortunately. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy and if you have any other questions for me in the future feel free to ask them on our Facebook page facebook.com/intermountainmoms and recommend us to your friends and family too.

IN THIS VIDEO, WE TAKE A GOOD HARD LOOK AT HOW ULTRASOUNDS WORK, HOW ACCURATE THEY ARE, AND POSSIBLE CAUSES OF INTERUPTION IN INTERPRETATION. Important Questions: The women in the CP Community claim their baby swims away, or can make itself "UNSEEN" during an ultrasound. A baby hiding or swimming away during ultrasound, where is this baby going? How does this baby have the ability to make itself invisible to an ultrasound machine? Why only your baby? If baby is in fact in your uterus, inside an amniotic sac how is it anatomically possible for a baby to go behind any organ in your body for the entire remainder of the pregnancy and still progress? When an ultrasound for pregnancy is performed they are looking for any signs of life. They look for your fundus, placenta or yolk sac, fetal pole, amniotic sac, umbilical cord, amniotic fluid, A HEARTBEAT, the size, position, and thickness of the uterus and uterine lining. They also take a peak at your ovaries to see if you recently ovulated and look at your fallopian tubes to check for any blockages, problems or damage as well as check for a pregnancy outside of the uterus. They are also checking for signs of recent miscarriage or a recent non-viable pregnancy. The Ultrasound results are evaluated by the Ultrasound Technician and then the results are reviewed by the doctor. If both professionals agree on the findings or lack there of and If none of these vital signs of life or recent life are found during your ultrasound...YOU ARE NOT PREGNANT. An ultrasound can confirm a pregnancy as early as 5 weeks. A baby can only move so far when trying to swim away from the probe. Their are only so many obstacles in the female body that can be in front of the baby blocking the view. The reason an ultrasound is so accurate is mainly because the uterus grows up out of the pelvic region pushing intestines out of the way and eventually the uterine wall is up against the abdominal muscles. If you see movement on the outside of your belly, baby is close enough to the surface to make that impression. If that is the case and baby is big enough to be felt during movement on the outside of the belly or recorded movement on the outside then baby should be found on ultrasound very easily because the baby, the amniotic sac and uterine wall are up against the abdominal muscles. This is why such a clear image can be produced on an ultrasound because nothing is in the way of viewing baby.

One of the first questions you have after seeing a positive pregnancy test result is, "How far along am I, and when is the baby due?". This is something that is determined when you see the doctor for the first time at your first prenatal appointment, which should be made by 13 weeks gestation, and you should plan on at least 13 weeks over the course of your pregnancy. Most doctors want to see you between 8 and 12 weeks, and at this point, they'll ask you about your previous menstrual history. And if you've been regular, then they'll probably just use your last menstrual period as a standard to determine your due date. If you have irregular cycles or you don't remember when your last period was, then the doctor will probably perform an ultrasound. And this is actually the most accurate way to determine pregnancy for women who have been irregular, because a fetus will grow at a very consistent rate during the first trimester, so they measure the size of the fetus, and if you're measuring 8 weeks, then you're 8 weeks along. Later on in pregnancy, the size of the fetus can vary, depending on different pathological factors, but early on, it's pretty easy to tell how far along you are by doing an ultrasound.

This video is about how to calculate your expected delivery date when pregnant. It is important to know your delivery date or due date of baby’s birth during pregnancy. The pregnancy due date calculation can be done in 3 simple steps which is explained in the video. 1. The EDD Expected delivery date calculation is based on Last menstrual period date (LMP) and it is applicable only for women having regular menstrual cycles. 2. Pregnancy can last from 38 – 42 weeks 3. If you do not know your last period date, pregnancy delivery date can still be calculated based on an early ultrasound scan Pregnancy care videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJg18N_8OF8Pr1GqlTBE1XubOOy8gb-TP what to pack in Hospital Bag https://youtu.be/L0YSskNUOms Food to be taken during pregnancy https://youtu.be/s3Kjnzah1Nc Baby skin care videos https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJg18N_8OF8NWHH8CeCzLbI9HAUKR5mut Baby food recipes https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJg18N_8OF8PhBI4j6cJeIcrDoOCCYx3h --- Mail to : [email protected] pregnancy due date calculator| due date calculator | how is expected delivery date calculated | delivery date calcualation | pregnancy date calculator | edd calculator |pregnancy calculator |how to calculatedue date |pregnancy month calculator| due date| delivery date| pregnancy calculator by conception date| pregncancy calculation by last menstrual period date LMP| pregnancy calculator by last period | Pregnancy due date calculation | how to calculate delivery date |how to calculate pregnancy date | pregnancy due date |pregnancy duration |pregnancy delivery date | Pregnancy care

You mentioned that you're 38 weeks along and the doctor is concerned about the size of your baby. Your belly must be measuring big. That's usually the first thing to clue a doctor off to the fact that the baby's growth is either abnormally small or large for your gestational age. You probably notice that, at each prenatal appointment, the doctor measures the size of your baby from your pubic bone to the top of your uterus, and this should match your gestational age in centimeters. So if it's abnormally small or large, then the woman should be sent for an ultrasound so that the actual size of the baby can be measured. Sometimes there's a discrepancy because of how the woman is carrying the baby, sometimes it's the amount of fluid surrounding the baby that's making her abnormally large, and then sometimes it actually is the size of the baby. When you go for the ultrasound, the technician or the doctor who performs it will get an estimated fetal weight. Let's say, for you, your baby is measuring about 8 pounds. You are right in saying that ultrasounds in the 3rd trimester are not very accurate in the sense that they can't date the pregnancy. It won't change the due date for you, because any growth discrepancies that happen in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters have to be due to a pathological cause, and they need to look into that. For example, abnormally large babies can be grown by mothers who have uncontrolled diabetes. And so that's something that we always think about. And then if a baby is abnormally large, it has implications after delivery. Sometimes extra small or extra large babies struggle with blood sugar control. So it's nice to know this ahead of time so that we can be on alert and be monitoring the baby for issues. So let's just say that the estimated fetal weight for your baby is 8 pounds. Your baby could actually be 7 pounds or 9 pounds. It can be plus or minus a pound in either direction, but it's usually pretty accurate, and it sounds like your doctor is recommending a C-section based on what they've seen so far, because they're worried about the baby fitting. I do recommend talking with your doctor and sharing your concerns with them, and based on your ultrasound results and the knowledge of your history, they'll be able to give you the best advice and explain why they think that would be the best plan of care. Good luck with everything, and congratulation ahead of time on the birth of your baby!

ultrasound appearances of a pregnancy at 5 weeks gestation

Generally speaking, most couples get to find out the gender of their baby around 20 weeks. And this is when you have an ultrasound that looks at the baby, their organs, their growth, the cervix, and the placenta. But you also get to see the gender, as long as the baby is cooperating and they're in a good position so that you can see the girl part or the boy part. You can actually tell the gender of a baby at 16 weeks, because the genitalia are formed at that point. If you see a view before that, like if you have an ultrasound at 12 or 13 weeks, they won't be able to tell exactly what the baby is because girl parts can actually look like boy parts until they get a little bit further along. Some people choose to or need to do genetic testing earlier in the pregnancy, and this gives information about the baby's chromosomes and, sometimes, the gender of the baby. This is about 95% to 99% accurate in determining the gender of your baby. But the sure way to tell what your baby is is by seeing it on ultrasound. If you have more specific questions about it, talk with your OB provider. And if you have more questions for me in the future, feel free to ask them on our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/IntermountainMoms, and recommend us to your friends and family too.

So I had my first ultrasound with the midwife today and everything went great! Considering she easily got a heartbeat on the monitor, we're thinking that the first due date I had is more accurate than the ultrasound I had a week ago. So *for now* we're going to stick with the February 23 due date. The heart rate was 150bpm this time :) I'll post an update vlog soon! Enjoy! :)

Pregnancy Ultrasound 1 & 2, and Baby's Gender. The 1st trimester ultrasound is to calculate the expected due/delivery date of the pregnancy. If you experienced anything like me, which the 1st clinic that I went to has no ultrasound machine of their own, that they requested me to do an ultrasound at other clinic and just bring a picture of the ultrasound. The nurses did not specify the details that the doctor wanted to know through the ultrasound picture, and to my own ignorance, I did not ask the nurse what are the details that they required. So, please ask the nurse or the doctor what details they actually wanted to know through the ultrasound. This will save money, time and more convenient for you and the doctor. For my 2nd ultrasound, I went to see a OB GYN specialist and that was within my 2nd trimester at 22 weeks. If you wanted to know the gender of your baby, just to be safe so that you won't be disappointed, go when you are at 20 weeks and above (sometimes before 20 weeks it is still hard to determine the gender). Anyhow, it is only 99% accurate. There is 1% for error still. Lol! Me and my husband was so excited the moment we get to see our child in my womb. Seeing the baby through the ultrasound makes it just more real, that we are about to be parents. Weight of Responsibility it a no question, but the joy, the cuteness, the unbelievable love, makes it so worth the while and patience. Hope for a fun pregnancy ultrasound experience for all of you. Regards, Masfira.

Ultrasound is a useful procedure for monitoring the baby's development in the uterus. Ultrasound uses inaudible sound waves to produce a two-dimensional image of the baby while inside the mother's uterus. The sound waves bounce off solid structures in the body and are transformed into an image on a monitor screen. Solid structures, such as bones and muscles, reflect sound waves and appear as light gray or white. Soft or hollow areas, like the chambers of the heart, don't reflect sound waves and appear dark or black. An ultrasound can supply vital information about a mother's pregnancy and her baby's health. Even though there are no known risks for ultrasound at present, it is highly recommended that pregnant women consult their physician before undergoing this procedure. Obstetric ultrasonography is the use of medical ultrasonography in pregnancy, in which sound waves are used to create real-time visual images of the developing embryo or fetus in its mother's uterus (womb). The procedure is a standard part of prenatal care in many countries, as it can provide a variety of information about the health of the mother, the timing and progress of the pregnancy, and the health and development of the embryo or fetus. The International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) recommends that pregnant women have routine obstetric ultrasounds between 18 weeks and 22 weeks gestational age in order to confirm pregnancy timing, to measure the fetus so that growth abnormalities can be recognized quickly later in pregnancy, and to assess for congenital malformations and multiple gestations (i.e. twins). Additionally, the ISUOG recommends that pregnant women have obstetric ultrasounds between 11 weeks and 13 weeks 6 days gestational age In countries with resources to perform them. Performing an ultrasound at this early stage of pregnancy can more accurately confirm the timing of the pregnancy and can also assess for multiple fetuses and major congenital abnormalities at an earlier stage. Research shows that routine obstetric ultrasound before 24 weeks gestational age can significantly reduce the risk of failing to recognize multiple gestations and can improve pregnancy dating to reduce the risk of labor induction for post-dates pregnancy. There is no difference, however, in perinatal death or poor outcomes for babies. Terminology Below are useful terms on ultrasound: Echogenic - giving rise to reflections (echoes) of ultrasound waves Hyperechoic – more echogenic (brighter) than normal Hypoechoic – less echogenic (darker) than normal Isoechoic – the same echogenicity as another tissue Transvaginal ultrasonography - Ultrasound is performed through the vagina. Transabdominal ultrasonography - Ultrasound is performed across the abdominal wall or through the abdominal cavity In normal state, each body tissue type, such as liver, spleen or kidney, has a unique echogenicity. Fortunately, gestational sac, yolk sac and embryo are surrounded by hyperechoic (brighter) body tissues. Obstetric ultrasonography, either transvaginally or transabdominally, can check for the sagittal sign as a marker of fetal sex. It can be performed between 65 and 69 days from fertilization (week 12 of gestational age), where it gives a result in 90% of cases - a result that is correct in approximately ¾ of cases, according to a study from 2001. Accuracy for males is approximately 50% and for females almost 100%. When performed later, after 70 days from fertilization (at week 13 of gestational age), it gives an accurate result in almost 100% of cases. Prenatal sex discernment Ultrasound or ultrasonography is a medical imaging technique that uses high frequency sound waves and their echoes. The technique is similar to the echolocation used by bats, whales and dolphins, as well as SONAR used by submarines. In ultrasound, the following events happen: The ultrasound machine transmits high-frequency (1 to 5 megahertz) sound pulses into your body using a probe. The sound waves travel into your body and hit a boundary between tissues (e.g. between fluid and soft tissue, soft tissue and bone). Some of the sound waves get reflected back to the probe, while some travel on further until they reach another boundary and get reflected. The reflected waves are picked up by the probe and relayed to the machine. The machine calculates the distance from the probe to the tissue or organ (boundaries) using the speed of sound in tissue (5,005 ft/s or1,540 m/s) and the time of the each echo's return (usually on the order of millionths of a second). The machine displays the distances and intensities of the echoes on the screen, forming a two dimensional image like the one shown below. In a typical ultrasound, millions of pulses and echoes are sent and received each second. There are many situations in which ultrasound is performed.
