Dating scan

For instance, if your period starts on the 5th April, then your estimated due date for delivery is the 12th January.

The dating scan is an ultrasound scan that can be done as early as six weeks after the last period, but the dating scan will be most accurate when done between 8 and 12 weeks gestation.

The scan can confirm the number of babies in the uterus, the embryo can be observed and measured by about five and a half weeks and a heartbeat usually detected by 6 weeks.

I prefer to do the dating scan via the transvaginal approach at approximately 8 weeks gestation.
