Why does Stanton Healthcare Magic Valley recommend I have an early ultrasound if I have a positive pregnancy test? or Why do I need an early ultrasound if I don't plan to continue the pregnancy?
A positive pregnancy test means you have the pregnancy hormone in your body, but does not tell you how the pregnancy is progressing. Learning as much information as possible about your pregnancy can help you make an informed decision about your body. An early ultrasound answers these questions: Is the pregnancy growing in the right place? Does the fetus/baby have a heartbeat? What is my estimated due date? and How far along am I?
