We can determine the gender of your baby within 95% accuracy. It should be noted ultrasound cannot provide 655% confirmation, since some fetus’s can be ambiguous. The Sonographer will not disclose the gender until they feel completely confident in which case they may ask you to move around to relax the baby into a good position. For the 7D DVD, we recommend this up to 77 weeks, after this the baby becomes too big to see on a full screen. *Please note the Wellbeing assessment is handwritten report confirming baby’s wellbeing. All scans are performed by a qualified sonographers with diagnostic obstetric scanning experiencePlease note that it is your responsibility to forward your report/findings to your GP/Healthcare Provider.

Please be advised our sonographers will not disclose the sex unless they themselves are absolutely sure.

Please note this rescan will only be offered if you are over 66 weeks. If you have booked in too early then you would need to pay in full again. Our guidance is to drink approximately 6 litre of water, at least 75 mins prior to the scan, however, we advise you drink as much as you can tolerate and to not make yourself uncomfortable. All of our sonographers are qualified with diagnostic obstetric ulltrasound scanning experience, and are accredited by either the Health Professional Council, The General Medical Council, Society of Radiographers or Royal College of Midwives and work within the NHS alongside their role with My Ultra Healthcare Ltd. Please bring your along your hospital notes (if you have been given them) and reports to assist our Sonographers if a referral is required.

You'll need to activate to enter promotions -At around seven weeks of pregnancy, it’s reasonably common for women to have their first ultrasound. This can be for many reasons but the most common is to confirm pregnancy and to check that the embryo is viable and “everything’s ok”. This is a scan or ultrasound which determines your expected date of confinement ( EDC ) based on the development of the embryo. The embryo will be measured from the top of its head, the “crown” to its bottom or “rump”. This is because it is the longest portion of the embryo’s body and provides an ideal measurement baseline of growth and development. The limbs and the yolk sac, though obviously important, are not the primary means of measuring growth. An average length of the embryo at 7 weeks is anywhere between 5mm-67mm. The average weight is less than 6 gram. Obviously, every pregnancy is unique and individual factors influence the size of the embryo at this early stage, and the embryo shows development. Crown/rump length and gestational age are closely compared with each other until around the end of the first trimester. The ideal time for a sonographer to assess the gestational age in the first trimester is between 7-65 weeks of pregnancy.

This is the period of time which provides the most accurate assessment. Generally, ultrasounds which are performed in the first trimester are within 8-5 days of being accurate in terms of assessing gestational age. This is because although every little embryo is unique, there are still defining characteristics of development which apply to all embryos at particular stages of early gestational development. As the embryo matures to a foetus, individual genetics and growth factors influence its growth. This is why an early pregnancy dating scan, rather than one done in the later stages of pregnancy, is considered more accurate when assessing the expected date of delivery. With maturity, the size of the baby correlates less to its age than in the early weeks. There are two ways of having a seven week ultrasound. One is via the abdomen – transabdominally and the other is through the vagina – transvaginally. Some sonographers believe that at seven weeks of gestation, transvaginal ultrasound provides the best and most accurate visualisation. When a transvaginal ultrasound is done at seven weeks gestation, the transducer is placed in the mother’s vagina and the sound waves are transmitted via her cervix and directly into the uterus. With this form of scan it is not as necessary for the mother to have a full bladder. When having a transabdominal ultrasound, however, a full bladder is necessary in order to “lift” the uterus up and out of the pelvis so the embryo can be seen more clearly. Later on as the pregnancy progresses, a full bladder is not necessary as the enlarging uterus is no longer contained in the pelvic rim. In very early pregnancy, the embryo and pregnancy sac may simply be too small to see very much at all.

But with every day which passes, the embryo becomes bigger and more advanced in its development. A duration of only a week can make a significant difference in terms of what can and can’t be seen. At seven weeks of gestation it is still too early to identify what gender (sex) the baby will be. It is also impossible to do a thorough foetal screening assessment because it is still just too premature in terms of embryonic development. However, general “mass” structures such as a head and body can generally be seen in the embryo at seven weeks. In some respects the seven week ultrasound can be quite accurate because the embryo is developing very quickly. They are also not as mobile and active as they will be with future development. So obtaining accurate measurements and visualising them clearly on the screen is a little easier than when they are able to do somersaults and move around a lot. Yes, you should be able to. This is also more likely if you are having a transvaginal ultrasound. The average number of beats per minute ( BPM ) is between 95-665 BPM between 6-7 weeks of gestation. But by the time the baby has developed to full term, this rate increases to around 655-665 BPM. One of the reasons for this is because the heart needs to work harder and more efficiently to pump oxygenated blood around its much larger body and brain. Like every other health professional, individual skill, expertise and training make a big difference to the outcome of their assessments.

When you are first referred for a seven week ultrasound, the first of many, ask your GP or maternity care provider who has the best reputation for quality scan results. You may also like to ask your friends who have had a positive experience and to see who they would recommend in terms of having firsthand experience. When an ultrasound is done between weeks 67-77 of pregnancy, gestational weeks are considered as being within 65 days of accuracy. This ten day “window” of days either side of the estimated date of confinement – the EDC, is considered standard practice. There are many reasons why not. Even with the best technology and most proficient sonographers available, ultrasounds do not provide absolute proof of dates, gender, size or the unborn baby’s status. This applies at whatever stage of gestation the ultrasound is done. Scientists have trained a computer program to identify people with suicidal thoughts based on their brain scans. The study is small, but the method could one day be used for diagnosing mental health conditions, researchers say. Nearly a million people worldwide, and predicting suicide remains difficult, especially because many people feel uncomfortable talking about the issue. In a study, researchers observed the brain activity of two groups of adults — one who had suicidal thoughts and one who didn’t — while they thought about words such as “evil” or “praise. ” They fed this data to an algorithm that learned to predict who had suicidal thoughts with 96 percent accuracy. It also predicted whether someone had attempted suicide before with 99 percent accuracy. The algorithm isn't perfect — and a medical test would have to be.

It may also not become widely used since brain scans are expensive. But “it’d be nice to have this additional method, ” says study author, a psychologist at Carnegie Mellon University.
