Limited Ultrasound. If your pregnancy test is positive, you will want to have your pregnancy confirmed by ultrasound.

You should have an ultrasound so you can know the following specific information about your pregnancy:
- Pregnancy Viability –Its’ not uncommon to experience a miscarriage in the early weeks of pregnancy. An ultrasound can tell you if the baby actually has a heartbeat.
- Pregnancy Dating – It’s important to know how far along your pregnancy is in order to know what abortion options are available to you by the age of the pregnancy and by state law.
- Pregnancy Placement – Sometimes a pregnancy will implant somewhere outside the uterus. This can be a dangerous situation for you if that occurs. It’s smart to get an ultrasound to know the exact placement of your pregnancy.
