A Dating pregnancy scan is performed on pregnant women to detect the gestation age of the foetus. Ultrasound is very accurate in estimating the baby’s due date and the earlier the scan the better the accuracy. The most accurate time is between 11 and 14 weeks of gestation. In general ultrasound scans performed during the first trimester are within 3 – 5 days of accuracy. After 28 weeks, the stimation of the due date can be as long as 3 weeks out. We offer the early pregnancy scan if you are below 11 weeks pregnant. The overall accuracy of the scan also depends on the skills of the sonographer and the ultrasound machine image quality.

Worried about your pregnancy in the early weeks? We explain just how early you can have a pregnancy scan, what it involves, how to book one privately and how much it might cost. By Rachel Mostyn. A pregnancy ultrasound scan will be carried out from around 6 weeks. So I would say leave it until 8 weeks so you know for sure. Going too early as I did just resulted in more worry.
Ante-Natal Ultrasound Scanning
An antenatal ultrasound scan utilizes high-frequency sound waves to create a picture of your baby in your womb. During an antenatal scan, a clear water-based conducting gel is applied over the skin of your abdomen to assist with the transmission of the sound waves. A handheld probe, called a transducer, that emits sound waves and receives the rebound echoes from the tissue is moved over the abdomen area.
Most antenatal scans are performed by a professional sonographer or a doctor and are totally painless with no adverse risks to you or your baby.
