Scan time:10 minutes
Ideal time:9 - 20 weeks
Short 2D scan to determine the age of your developing baby, and provide you with an estimated due date
Have you recently found out that you're pregnant, but you're confused about how many weeks pregnant you really are, or when your baby will be due, don't worry... you're not the only one. Often people measure the number of weeks from their last known menstrual period date (LMP) which is fine, but your baby won't have been conceived then, it's most likely sometime around 2 weeks after your LMP that your baby was created and started to grow.
Our dating scan is a short 2D (black and white) ultrasound scan to measure the size of the fetus to more accurately identify the GA (Gestational Age) and from this determine a due date.
Please note: At Your Baby Scan, we use an external, abdominal probe for all of our scans. In some instances you may think that you are 7 weeks (based on your last period) but are only 5 weeks. It can sometimes be difficult to see the fetus at less than 7 weeks. If during the scan you don't see your baby because it is less than 7 weeks old, we will offer you a rescan 1 - 2 weeks later at no extra charge.
