First trimester ultrasound is performed in the first months of a pregnancy. Pregnancy ultrasounds are performed mainly using transabdominal ultrasound. For many women, especially after 8 weeks gestation, sufficient information about the baby may be obtained with transabdominal ultrasound only. However, in the early pregnancy, the developing embryo is very small at 6 weeks gestation, the baby is only mm long and a transvaginal ultrasound may be required to get a better image of the baby. Transvaginal ultrasound is safe and commonly performed during all stages of pregnancy, including the first trimester.

It will not harm you or your baby. Transabdominal ultrasound involves scanning through your lower abdomen.

Do I need a referral? Who can I bring to my pregnancy ultrasound? Pregnancy is an exciting time for couples, families and friends. We understand that your ultrasound is an opportunity to bond with your growing baby. You may wish to bring your partner or other support person to share in this special time. Young children, especially very young children, do not usually find ultrasounds entertaining or exciting.

They may even become distressed by being in a dark room with strangers examining their mother. If you must bring young children, you should bring another adult if possible so that if your child becomes upset or distracting, there is someone to look after them and take them outside if needed. This is especially important if you are attending for prenatal diagnosis CVS or amniocentesis.

Your sonographer needs to be able to concentrate, and the presence of young children or many family members can sometimes be distracting. We would please ask that you keep this in mind when planning your visit to us. Will I be given pictures of my baby? We will give you images of your baby in a variety of formats, so you can share this exciting time with your family and friends.

It may be a simple and perfectly rational observation, but it still counts as Tempting Fate. An Unwitting Instigator of Doom can be basically complicit with the villain, but in that case, they’re generally seeing only a small portion of the picture. If they’re being specifically manipulated but do not realize, they’re an Unwitting Pawn. Other times, they’re simply blundering in like a wrench in some particularly highly valued machine , so it can be caused by The Load or The Millstone.

They may also end up as the Idiot Houdini. In other cases, more Genre Savvy or simply in the know characters will chew them out for bumbling in and screwing things up, trusting them little better than they would a traitor. Also compare Chekhov’s Gunman , in which a seemingly insignificant character becomes more important later on. In Dragon Ball , Emperor Pilaf releases Demon King Piccolo , who promptly proceeds to have many of the world’s leading martial artists killed , including Goku’s best friend, Krillin, and nearly takes over the world.

Pilaf hopes to be able to be rewarded by Piccolo with his own territory, only to be backstabbed. Nice job nearly dooming the world, shorty. However, in releasing Demon King Piccolo, Pilaf ensured that Goku would grow up to be a warrior trained by God or Kami himself, and thus be powerful enough to put up a fight against all the increasingly-stronger Big Bads that came to Earth afterwards, up to and including the God of Destruction himself.

Remember how Majin Buu became truly evil, killed off half of the Z-warriors, the entire human race, and then finally blew up Earth?

I went to GP and the unfriendly nurse tested me and said “you are not pregnant! You can imagine how I felt, as it is my first and I have been waiting for it for so long! So I went and took the test from her and showed her that there is a faint line! She accepted me as pregnant! When I asked her what does it mean that my lines are so faint; she waived her hand and said ” a line is a line!

So that reassured me. However, I am testing every morning and my lines stay almost invisible! Does it mean that the hcg amount in my urine is not high enough? What does that mean? I am a bit worried too PJen Tue Mar If your test is faintly positive and then a few days later turns completely negative, you may have had a very early miscarriage. Experts estimate that about 50 per cent of fertilised eggs don’t make it, and a further 15 per cent of recognised pregnancies end in miscarriage, so unfortunately this is very common.
