An ultrasound is a medical procedure used to confirm pregnancy. It uses sound waves to create pictures of the pregnancy inside the body. It’s simple and very effective in diagnosing potential pregnancy complications and confirming the gestational age of a pregnancy. 

A transvaginal ultrasound is done for women early in pregnancy, around 6-8 weeks. Most ultrasounds are done with an external wand over the top of the stomach. If you’re interested in learning more about an ultrasound before going about one, keep reading.

  3. The location of your pregnancy (if it’s ectopic)
