First Trimester Scans
Weeks 11, 12 and 13
The first trimester is months one, two, and three of your pregnancy.
Below are scan pictures taken during weeks 11, 12 and 13 of pregnancy.
It is recommended that all pregnant women have a scan in the first trimester, to date the pregnancy and to see any problems there may be in the pregnancy (low lying placenta, twins etc.). Scans in early pregnancy are usually performed in the first trimester around 12 weeks. You may have a earlier scan, if you are experiencing pain or bleeding for example or unsure of your LMP dates.
Transabdominal ultrasound (TAU) and also the transvaginal ultrasound (TVU) are valuable diagnostic tools in obstetrics and gynecology.
Transabdominal ultrasound will provide a panoramic view of the abdomen and pelvis and is noninvasive, whereas transvaginal ultrasound provides a more limited pelvic view and requires insertion of a probe into the vagina.
While your sonographer takes measurments they will explain what you are looking at. It may not be easy for you to make out what you are seeing on the screen in the early scans. The images below will give you an idea of what can be seen and what they look for at each week; of the first trimester.
