Most dating scans are done with a trans-abdominal transducer and a fullish bladder.

If you have more than one ultrasound during your pregnancy, giving you 'multiple dates', then the earliest ultrasound estimate should be used, because it will be more accurate.

If you have any questions about this, please feel free to talk to your sonographer or doctor about it.

It's very exciting to "see" your baby in the womb, often moving his or her hands and legs.

Having a scan in pregnancy is usually a happy event, but be aware that ultrasound scans may detect some serious abnormalities, so you should be prepared for that information.

Sometimes a trans-vaginal examination shows that your pregnancy is less advanced than expected.

just curious x thanks and goodluck with all your pregnancys The scan dating is pretty accurate, but your baby will come when its good and ready regardless.

The due date is there more to help the doctors and all the people who need to know (employers, etc) than you. hi i just wanted to know , im in the uk and had a 12 week dating scan.

If the pregnancy is very early the gestation sac and fetus will not be big enough to see, so the transvaginal approach will give better pictures.

For transvaginal ultrasound you can have an empty bladder Dating scans are usually recommended if there is doubt about the validity of the last menstrual period.
