How can an Ultrasound Help My Pregnancy Decision?Did you just find out you’re pregnant? Are you struggling to decide what to do next? Pause and take a deep breath. You can do this. Certain circumstances in your life might feel overwhelming. You might be wondering what to do next.  An ultrasound is one of the best first steps you can take to know more about your pregnancy. Whether you’re considering adoption, abortion, or parenting, an ultrasound is needed to make a pregnancy decision.

Here is more insight into what an ultrasound is and how it will inform your pregnancy decision.

Confirm Your Pregnancy

An ultrasound is one of the necessary steps you need to take in order to confirm your pregnancy and determine your available options. An ultrasound is completed during the first trimester and estimates the gestational age and location of your pregnancy.  How far along your pregnancy has developed will determine your options in terms of abortion procedures available to you. If the pregnancy is located outside of the uterus, it is considered an ectopic pregnancy and can be life-threatening if not immediately addressed.

If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and are wondering what to do next, our team at Alabama Pregnancy Test Center offers free and confidential ultrasounds.

How Does An Ultrasound Work?

Ultrasound technology has advanced drastically throughout the years and can provide you with helpful insight into your pregnancy health and status. No need to be nervous, since it is a very easy process. An ultrasound uses high-frequency sound waves with a device called a transducer to create images of your pregnancy progress. Your ultrasound tech will tell you about your pregnancy as you go and alarm you of anything unusual or concerning.
