Ambivalent: At 9 weeks gestation by last menstrual period a transabdominal ultrasound should pick up the pregnancy. If it doesn't, it should be followed immediately by a transvaginal ultrasound. The rationale for first trimester ultrasound is to determine, whether there is one or more embryo's, whether there is a heart beat or not, and whether the pregnancy is in the uterus or outside.
