Can also talk to your ob/gyn about ovulation detectors and basal body temperature tracking to determine fertility. ...Read more

It will not hurt: the ultrasound really does not show anything interesting until 8-9 weeks and is quite interesting by 12 weeks. the arms, legs, face, heart and possibly genitals can be seen on a good ultrasound machine by 12 weeks usually. dating the pregnancy can be done earlier but it is a lot more fun for the parents around 12 weeks or later. ...Read more

Having my first vaginal ultrasound with my first child will it hurt will they show me my baby? What do they do during it

New baby: To evaluate the baby they will want to put a probe in the vagina. This should not be more uncomfortable than any routine pelvic exam by a doctor. If the baby is large enough to see I would expect they would share the image with you. Usually mothers get a copy of a picture of the ultrasound. There is no risk to the baby as they use only sound waves. ...Read more
