Here are the times in your pregnancy that you can expect or request sonography. Remember that these sonograms are for normal pregnancies. We may use special purpose sonography based on your individual risk factors (example: history of early delivery, prior surgery on your cervix, gestational diabetes, advance maternal age, etc.).
|Sonogram Type||Gestational age|
|Initial viability sonogram||approx. 7 – 8 Weeks|
|Nuchal translucency (if indicated)||11-13 6/7 Weeks|
|Fetal anatomy scan||20 – 22 Weeks|
OTHER OBSTETRICAL SCANNING MAY BE ORDERED AS NEEDED— for instance—bleeding, pain, concerns about fetal growth—be sure to consult with your provider.
