A small amount of ultrasound gel is placed on the end of this probe.In the beginning of my pregnancy we found out that baby was two weeks after what I should have been by my LMP. Is it possible that, that is my real due date and its right with my LMP now?Transvaginal ultrasound is safe and commonly performed during all stages of pregnancy, including the first trimester. Transabdominal ultrasound involves scanning through your lower abdomen.A small amount of ultrasound gel is put on the skin of the lower abdomen, with the ultrasound probe then scanning through this gel.
I did not do ultrasounds with my last baby and don't want to with this one..know I need an accurate date...since I thought I was due late January.
I think I read that the earlier ultrasounds are more accurate for predicting due dates then the third thrimester ones based on size.
Just curious on how accurate an Ultrasound is when telling you how far along you are during the first trimester, particularly from 7-12 weeks along.
Could one show you being 8 weeks a long when your actually 11-12 weeks? The way they determine the age is based on the size in comparision to the average.
So it wouldn't be three or four weeks off if you were sure of your ovulation or conception date and had gotten a positive pregnancy test two months go.
