I cannot stress enough how amazing this staff is, they make you feel like family! Cantanucci and all of the nurses (especially Ashley).
You made this process easier by being supportive and positive. After almost 5 years of trying to conceive, going through numerous tests and meeting with another clinic closer to home, who told me my chances even with IVF were still very low, a good friend recommended advanced fertility center of Chicago. We now have 2 amazing children who are now 5 and 3 years old!
The technician holds a wand shaped transducer and rubs it over the stomach to produce two-dimensional pictures of the baby.
If the doctor has any reason to suspect problems with the fetus, he may ask the technician to perform an advanced ultrasound.
This ultrasound assesses potential problems with the development and anatomy of the baby's heart and diagnoses any suspected heart defects.Ultrasound picture at 6 weeks and 1 day of gestation Yolk sac is seen to the left of the fetal pole (fetus) Fetus has CRL, crown-rump length, of 4.3 mm (between cursors) A fetal heartbeat was seen during this scan I am so grateful for Advanced Fertility Center. They want this for you just as much as you want this for you! After ttc for 4 years and at 41 years of age, we became pregnant after 1 round of IVF, and had our beautiful boy this past October. 2/7/15 our son was born all thanks to the assistance of Dr. Everyone was so helpful and here for all our questions, worries, etc.Ultrasound scans use sound waves to build a picture of the baby in the womb.
The scans are completely painless, have no known side effects on mothers or babies, and can be carried out at any stage of pregnancy.
Most women expect to receive at least one ultrasound during pregnancy.
