First examination in pregnancy

Sometimes it can be known before pregnancy, and sometimes a doctor can be consulted as a pleasant surprise. In the first evaluation, it should be shown that the pregnancy is correct and healthy. First of all, ultrasound examination checks whether the pregnancy is settled where it should be in the uterus. By monitoring the pregnancy sac in the uterus, the possibility of external pregnancy is eliminated. In addition, ultrasound evaluation can also be observed whether there are diseases in the uterus or ovaries that may adversely affect pregnancy, such as disfigurement, myoma or ovarian cyst. In addition, the presence of abnormal pregnancy conditions such as grape pregnancy (mol hidatiform) and empty pregnancy (blighted ovum) in the womb should also be examined.

In cases where pregnancy is noticed very early, it may be necessary to wait a little to see the pregnancy sac with ultrasound. Sometimes this period can exceed ten days. The baby's heartbeat will also be monitored approximately 7-10 days after the appearance of the pregnancy sac.

If all examinations about pregnancy are normally monitored in the ultrasound evaluation, the expectant mother will be asked for some examinations that may be insightful about the course of pregnancy. These examinations include:

** Blood count and blood type
