Some people we talked to had not had a week scan, either because their babies' abnormalities had been detected by earlier diagnostic tests e. For many other women, the week scan was the point at which they discovered the baby had serious problems. I came back probably about 17 weeks pregnant and had the anomaly scan at 20 weeks and like most people expected everything to be fine and to come away with a lovely picture but unfortunately that isn't what happened. What happened then? We went, I went in to the scanning room and they're quite bland facially anyway, whether everything's fine or not they just look at the screen to start off with and do measurements but I very quickly realised that the woman's demeanour wasn't, even for a bland face, was concerning.

You may have a earlier scan, if you are experiencing pain or bleeding for example or unsure of LMP dates. Transabdominal ultrasound TAU and also the transvaginal ultrasound TVU are valuable diagnostic tools in obstetrics and gynecology. Transabdominal ultrasound will provide a panoramic view of the abdomen and pelvis and is noninvasive, whereas transvaginal ultrasound provides a more limited pelvic view and requires insertion of a probe into the vagina.
And if you look at the blood test it will be in Hi Olivia, your due date is usually based upon the start date of your last period so in theory you would have had your period around 8th Dec, you would then normally fall pregnant within the week following your period so roughly 15thst Dec give or take a few days depending on your cycle.
