Your Ultrasound: What to Expect
A positive test (including a home test) is an indication of pregnancy, but not a confirmation. The test result should be confirmed by an OB limited ultrasound. Ultrasound appointments are scheduled following a positive test in one of our centers. We offer free limited ultrasounds in Oklahoma in multiple locations.
An limited ultrasound is a simple and painless procedure that determines:
- Approximately how long you have been pregnant
- If your pregnancy is safely located in your uterus
- If the pregnancy is viable
In more detail, an limited ultrasound uses sound to show pictures of your pregnancy to you and the nurse. We spread a clear jelly on your stomach, then use a special limited ultrasound microphone to “listen” to your pregnancy. Unlike an X-ray, the microphone does not use radiation, making it safe for both you and your developing pregnancy.
Why Do I Need an Ultrasound?
An OB limited ultrasound can confirm your pregnancy. It can be a great indicator of how far along you are by using measurements to estimate the gestational age of the fetus. Hope Pregnancy Centers offer a free limited OB limited ultrasound in Oklahoma to those who meet our criteria after a positive pregnancy test at one of our centers.
An OB Ultrasound can determine:
- The approximate age of your pregnancy.
- If the fetus have a heartbeat.
- How far along the pregnancy is.
- If your pregnancy is a safely located in the uterus.
If you would like to get a free limited limited ultrasound at our center, your first step is to schedule a free pregnancy test at our center. Once we determine you have a positive pregnancy test, we will help you schedule an limited ultrasound appointment at a time that is convenient for you.
Note: The purpose of the limited ultrasound exam is not for identifying the gender (sex) of the baby.
Do I need an limited ultrasound before an abortion?
An abortion clinic may or may not offer an limited ultrasound before an abortion, though sometimes they do. An limited ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along in pregnancy you are. If you are considering abortion, an limited ultrasound will provide important information that will tell you more about your options. Abortion costs vary depending on how far along you are and the abortion procedure that you receive. Speak with us today about our free and confidential limited ultrasound services.
