Early ultrasound for pregnancy dating


12-Oct-2019 03:46

The accuracy of using your LMP to date your pregnancy depends on having regular cycles and assumes you ovulated (released an egg) on day 14 of your cycle and conceived right away - ­ none of which may be true.

Because few women know the exact day they ovulated or conceived, an ultrasound done in the first trimester of pregnancy has been shown to the be the most accurate way to date a pregnancy.

The timing of certain tests, the monitoring of the baby's growth, and the correct diagnosis of premature labor, or being truly "overdue," (postdates), as well as many other situations that arise in the course of a typical pregnancy, all depend on a correct determination of the EDC for appropriate management.

In the past, the EDC was calculated by using Naegele's Rule, which determined the date by subtracting 3 months from the 1st day of the last period and then adding 7 days.

Research shows that routine obstetric ultrasound before 24 weeks gestational age can significantly reduce the risk of failing to recognize multiple gestations and can improve pregnancy dating to reduce the risk of labor induction for post-dates pregnancy.

This is where our wonderful ultrasound machines can make a crucial difference.Ultrasounds done later in the pregnancy are less accurate for dating, so if your due date is set in the first trimester, it shouldn't be changed.
