Ultrasound of early pregnancy (pregnancy week 6-12)

Ultrasound of mid-pregnancy (pregnancy week 13-26)

Ultrasound of mid-pregnancy + recording (pregnancy week 13-20)

3D/4D-ultrasound examination (pregnancy week 24-30)

Ultrasound of late pregnancy (pregnancy week 27-40)

In the ultrasound of early pregnancy we can already see the baby’s heartbeat and we can check that the baby is developing in the right place. The heartbeat can be seen after pregnancy week 6 + 3.

In the ultrasound of mid-pregnancy we can often already tell the baby’s gender. The gender generally shows after pregnancy week 16 + 0.

In the ultrasound of late pregnancy we can estimate the weight of your soon to be born baby.

In the 3D/4D-ultrasound examination we can check the baby’s features to a great detail and see how it moves. We recommend the 3D/4D-ultrasound between pregnancy weeks 24 and 30. By this time the baby typically has a little bit of a rounder face and there is enough water to perform the scan. Also after pregnancy week 28 we can get a successfull scan if there is enough water in front of the baby’s face.

Ultrasound of mid-pregnancy with recording is a great option for you if you would like to have recorded material on a USB-stick from your midpregnancy ultrasound.

Ultrasound of mid-pregnancy without recording won’t send you home with empty hands either – you will receive printed out images from your ultrasound.

3D/4D-ultrasound examination and ultrasound of mid-pregnancy + recording include a USB-stick. The USB will include both photos and videos. From the other ultrasounds you will get printed out images. 

Kaunis odotus has acquired Samsung’s own Hello Mom feature for its high-quality ultrasound devices, which allows you to get the image directly to your phone with a convenient QR code!

Pregnancy

The baby’s heart starts to beat 25 days after being conceived. For this reason a good time for an early pregnancy ultrasound would be around pregnancy week 6+3.

The pregnancy calculators and most maternity clinics will calculate the duration of your pregnancy using a 28 day cycle. In this case ovulation would happen on the 14th day of the cycle. However this is not always the case. If the cycle is short, the pregnancy might be further or a lot earlier if the cycle is long.

In the early pregnancy ultrasound we can determinate the exact duration of pregnancy based on the length of the fetus and size of the womb

Most of early stage miscarriages are due to a chromosome error. This can’t be stopped and it’s not caused by anything you did.

Bleeding or back-stomach pain can be signs of miscarriage, but sometimes there might be a miscarriage without any symptoms at all. Sometimes bleeding and pain might occur with a healthy pregnancy.

We will give you a referral to specialized medical care where the situation will be checked. If the pregnancy has not terminated spontaneously, the termination will be completed with either medication or curettage
