Introduction:

Child birth is one of the most beautiful and complex phenomenon on Earth. The whole nine months, from the start of pregnancy to birth, the mother shares a special bond with the baby. Everyone in the family is extra careful and caring towards the mother and baby. But that is not enough. One must also be aware of the health of the baby. Apart from the care given at home, one must also provide medical care and attention. This can be done by getting regular ultrasounds performed.

By getting ultrasounds done, one can get complete information about the baby’s health and development. Not only that, it is also a good option to find out about any ailments or diseases that the baby might have. Here is some useful information which will help you in these tests.

What is Ultrasound?

Ultrasound is a medical scan that helps create the images of the body parts or of growing baby in case of ultrasound during pregnancy. Sound waves, which are totally harmless, are transmitted to the body part under inspection.

These waves then create an image of the part being tested. For pregnancy ultrasound, sound waves bounce off of the baby and these waves are recorded and converted into video images, leading to tracking your baby’s shape, position, and movements.

The ultrasound during a pregnancy can create images of the placenta, uterus, and the baby. The doctor gets to inspect the progress of pregnancy and the baby’s health with the use of ultrasound tests.

Ultrasound is also called USG or Sonography.

Ultrasounds in the First Trimester:

Primarily, tran-sabdominal ultrasounds are performed during pregnancy. These ultrasounds are non invasive which means nothing is put in the body. In some cases a trans-vaginal ultrasound (TVS Ultrasound) might be required to get a better image of the baby. TVS ultrasound is very safe. It is commonly performed during all the stages of pregnancy, including the first trimester. It poses no harm to you or to your baby.

Trans-abdominal Ultrasound or Ultrasound Whole Abdomen        

Trans-abdominal ultrasound is a process in which your abdomen is scanned by the ultrasound probe. Before scanning, a small quantity of gel is put on the lower abdomen with the help of the ultrasound probe. This is done to improve the contact between your skin and the probe. After this the scan is done by moving the ultrasound probe along the lower abdomen. While the probe is moved along your abdomen, the real time images from this test are being sent to the ultrasound machine. You can see the images as they show on the ultrasound machine. A good ultrasound technician will also explain to you what the images mean e.g. when can you see the heart of the baby beating.

Transvaginal Ultrasound / Ultrasound TVS

Transvaginal ultrasound (TVS ultrasound) is an internal ultrasound. In this technique, an ultrasound probe is put into the vagina to capture the images. Because of the technique and procedure involved, the trans-vaginal ultrasound produces far better and clearer images of the female pelvic organs. A better understanding is also achieved, since the ultrasound probe lies closer to these structures.

The trans-vaginal ultrasound probe is thin in diameter. It is covered with a disposable protective covering. At the end of the probe, a small amount of ultrasound gel is placed so that it doesn’t cause much discomfort. The probe is then inserted a short distance into the vagina slowly and gently.

The trans-vaginal ultrasound mostly causes less discomfort than a performing a pap smear. No analgesia is required in this technique.

Special efforts have been taken to ensure that your privacy is always respected during your ultrasound, especially the trans-vaginal examination. In addition to wearing a gown, a large towel will also be provided to cover our lower body during the transvaginal ultrasound. You may specifically ask for a lady ultrasound doctor to do you ultrasound.

Obstetrical Ultrasound / Ultrasound OBS / Level 1 Ultrasound

Another ultrasound scan that is usually recommended during the first trimester is called Ultrasound Obstetrics or Ultrasound Obs. It is also referred to as Level 1 ultrasound. It is done in the first trimester to check whether the fetus is inside the uterus and to check the fetal heart rate.

There could be a number of reasons as to why your doctor may request this ultrasound. Some of them are listed below –

  • Confirming the presence of your baby’s heartbeat.
  • Confirming the correct dates of your pregnancy.
  • Confirming the location of your pregnancy.
  • Determining the number of babies present.
  • Identifying pregnancies at increased risk of miscarriage or pregnancy loss.
  • Checking other pelvic organs.
  • Your doctor may be concerned about your pregnancy because of abdominal pain or vaginal bleeding.

Ultrasound in Second Trimester:

There are primarily, three ultrasound scans that are done in second trimester of pregnancy. They are

  • Level 2
  • NTBT Scan
  • Biophysical Profile

The key reasons for these ultrasound scans are given below and we explain each ultrasound in more detail after that.

  • The baby’s anatomy or structure.
  • Measurements of the baby.
  • The baby’s heart rate and rhythm.
  • The number of babies.
  • The position of the placenta.
  • The amount of amniotic fluid around your baby.
  • The length of the cervix.
  • 3D / 4D images of your baby.

Level 2 ultrasound

A level 2 ultrasound gives a very specific glimpse of the baby growing in your uterus. Also called the 20-week anatomy scan, this test is a great way to see how the baby is developing and assure positive growth symptoms. This ultrasound gives you the first picture of your baby and makes sure you have many more of these in the days to come.

NT (Nuchal translucency) scan / NTBT Ultrasound Scan

This test is done to assess the developing risk to Down’s syndrome and other genetic abnormalities. It measures the amount of fluid at the translucent space in the baby’s neck. There is a larger amount of this fluid in babies with abnormalities which makes this space appear bigger than average. The NT scan must be done during 11-14 weeks of pregnancy.

Biophysical profile

This ultrasound is done mainly to check whether the baby is getting enough oxygen in the womb. It tracks the baby’s movements and tests the amount of amniotic fluid. It also monitors your baby’s heartbeat for around 20 minutes (non-stress part). The main results of this test includes heartbeat, body movement, muscle tone, breathing, amniotic fluid. A perfect score of 10 ensures that the baby is healthy. A score below 8 needs retesting or early delivery, whatever the doctor recommends.

This is done with the use of fetal heart-rate monitoring and ultrasounds to assess the amniotic fluid levels. Some other reasons are also there for third trimester ultrasounds. These include concerns about the health of the placenta and questions about whether your baby’s growth is on track. Just think of those sessions as time spent getting to know your baby. Soon enough, you’ll be looking right in his baby blues.

Some possible ways to keep a check on the well-being of your baby are by measuring him, looking at his blood flow or simply just by watching him move around. A healthy baby stretches and flexes, opens and closes his hands,wiggles his fingers and toes, moves his arms and legs and moves his lips and tongue. He also breathes the amniotic fluid into his lungs. This helps the baby to mature. One can get an idea of how their baby will look from the picture of the baby’s face in the third trimester.
