The amount of fluid around the baby will be measured, and your cervix, uterus, ovaries, and bladder will be assessed for any abnormalities.Knowing where you are in your pregnancy is important for your prenatal care, all the way from your first trimester, through to labour.This ultrasound is usually offered in the second trimester, between 18 and 22 weeks of gestation.The ultrasonographer will take many measurements of your baby to screen for any abnormalities.
Images will be captured to view the development of your baby’s brain, face, heart, spine, chest, major organs, feet, and hands.
Transvaginal ultrasound usually produces better and clearer images of the female pelvic organs including the developing pregnancy, because the ultrasound probe lies closer to these structures.
