What Does An Ultrasound Do?
You’ve probably heard of an ultrasound before. People get them every day for a lot of different reasons. But, for pregnancy, a limited OB ultrasound is an image of what’s going on inside your uterus. The uterus is the place that holds a pregnancy. An ultrasound will verify the location of the pregnancy, detect if there is a fetal heartbeat, determine the fetal age and approximate due date. All of this information is very important. Good information leads to good decisions. Now that you have all of this knowledge, you can now begin thinking of your next steps.
