Question: When do you get your first ultrasound in BC?

It can be done as early as the 5th week of pregnancy. Sometimes the sex of your fetus can be seen by about the 18th week of pregnancy. Ultrasound is one of the screening tests that may be done in the first trimester to look for birth defects, such as Down syndrome.

How many pregnancy ultrasounds do you get in BC?

The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada recommends that all women have two ultrasounds: one “dating” ultrasound at 11-14 weeks and one “anatomic” ultrasound between 18-20 weeks.
