Ultrasound scan – from 8 Weeks

When you reach around your twelfth week of pregnancy, you will be offered an ultrasound scan. This appointment is routine for every pregnant woman, and your midwife will make the dating scan ultrasound appointment with you. You may or may not have already had an early pregnancy scan to confirm the pregnancy after your first positive test, but a 8 week scan will be able to provide you with much clearer pictures than between five and 8 weeks. With this being said, what is a dating scan?


What happens at a dating scan?

Generally, at 8 weeks of pregnancy, the ultrasound scan uses high-frequency sound waves from a probe that is then passed over the tummy to provide us with an image of your baby, safely and non-invasively. You may find the ultrasound gel a little cold at first, but an ultrasound offers a great way to see your baby’s development. The 12-week scan is an exciting stage, as you can hear your baby’s heartbeat and see them on the screen.

If you are 8 weeks pregnant, why not book with one of our professional sonographers today? You can visit us at our clinic in Birmingham. As part of the NHS screening programmes, you will be very well looked after.

Find out exactly how many weeks you are

With our private pregnancy dating scan, we measure gestational age from the first day of the woman’s last menstrual period to the current date, which also allows us to give you an estimated date of delivery. During the scan, we will also measure the crown-rump length of your baby (CRL) and use these measurements to help determine an accurate gestational age in weeks.

Knowing how far you are into your pregnancy will be incredibly helpful throughout the process. All our scans are performed by qualified sonographers who have plenty of experience in pregnancy scanning.

Your sonographer will apply slight pressure on your tummy to get the best image we can of your baby’s body, and you can rest assured that most scans are carried out with no complications. Despite this, some babies like to lie in an awkward position, meaning we may struggle to get a clear image. In many cases, the earlier you have your pregnancy dating ultrasound, the more accurate it will be at estimating your baby’s due date.

What is the purpose of a dating scan?

Private dating scan uses include the verifying of the foetal gestation age. Measurements of the CRL (crown-rump length) will be taken and it will be confirmed whether you are carrying one or multiple babies. Remember, if this is your first scan, you must go to all ultrasound scan appointments with a full bladder!

I booked my appointment (Growth Scan) with the Northampton unit, however, the Ultrasound Plus team called me the day before saying that they would have to rebook it to a different unit. Due to date availability, we chose to go to the Birmingham unit. The clinic is very small and the team is quite nice. I must say that it was a bit rushed compared to other private scans that I've had before, so I'm not sure if I was squeezed in between appointments or if it is usually like this. Since the assessments were done as requested when booking, I must say that overall it was a nice experience.
