Question: Hi, I am 7 week pregnant now and want to now when can I go for my first ultrasound checkup ?
Answer: At around seven weeks of pregnancy, it’s reasonably common for women to have their first ultrasound. This can be for many reasons but the most common is to confirm pregnancy and to check that the embryo is viable and “everything’s ok”.
Other reasons to have a 7 week ultrasound are to:
Confirm the presence of one or more embryos and gestational sacs.
Assess the gestational age. This can also be known as a “dating scan”.
When a mother has been experiencing blood loss, the ultrasound can identify the cause and source of the bleeding.
Confirm the presence of a heartbeat.
Check the size of the embryo and ensure the baby is the right size for gestational age.
To do a general check of the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
To ensure the embryo has implanted within the uterus and there is not an ectopic pregnancy occurring.
When a mother is unsure about the date of her last normal menstrual period (LNMP) and to assess the embryo’s growth in relation to her menstrual history.
So u can surely go for ultrasound scan during this week.
Question: Hi.. This is my first pregnancy, now I'm 5 months carrying, I just want to know when I can feel baby movements.
Answer: Hello dear, you can feel your baby's first movements, between weeks 16 and 25 of your pregnancy. If this is your first pregnancy, you may not feel your baby move until closer to 25 weeks.
baby movement will be very much like a butterfly flutttering or quickening which you may sometime get confused with your blood vessel movement. but kick will be very strong and you will feel something is pushing you from inside. It could will be with the hand or the leg of the baby.
Hope it helped Take care urself....
