Ultrasounds

GUIDELINES FOR ULTRASOUNDS

Most patients will receive at least 2 ultrasounds in pregnancy - one in the first trimester to ensure proper dating and one in the second trimester for anatomy evaluation and gender if desired.  For convenience, we have ultrasound capabilities in each of our offices.  However, patients should not expect an ultrasound on the first visit, however, as the timing of the first ultrasound is at the discretion of the provider.  When an ultrasound is performed or scheduled, patients should drink the following amount of water one hour before the ultrasound. The bladder must be full for the ultrasound. DO NOT empty your bladder unless instructed by the technician.

 IF YOU ARE 12-WEEKS: NO PREP (Vaginal Probe)

IF YOU ARE 12-40 WEEKS: DRINK 20 oz. of fluid
