When you achieve a pregnancy with ACFS, we will perform your first pregnancy ultrasound at 5-7 weeks' gestational age and continue to monitor you until you are safely through the first trimester. We offer this service to our patients at no additional cost. We will confirm that your pregnancy is in the uterus (as opposed to a tubal or ectopic pregnancy) and that early growth and development are on track.
We recommend that our patients establish care with their obstetrician by 8-10 weeks to allow for a smooth transition of care.
Gestational age is calculated from a woman's last menstrual period (LMP), from a known date of ovulation, or a procedure date (IUI or embryo transfer). By convention, it is assumed that a woman ovulated on day 14 of a 28-day menstrual cycle. Therefore, women are often at approximately '4 weeks' pregnant around the time of their missed menstrual period and first positive pregnancy test. The estimated due date for the pregnancy is at 40 weeks of gestation.
