The first few weeks of an IVF pregnancy are often packed with tension ! Is all well ? Is the pregnancy developing normally ? Every minor spot of blood leads to panic - ans there's a lot of suspense when you get your HCG results and go for your ultrasound scans !
Seeing your baby's heart beat for the first time on the scan can be a very emotionally charged moment ! This photo essay by Dr Hemant Morparia shows you how a normal pregnancy evolves, as seen by ultrasound scanning, so you know what to expect !
Please remember that the weeks refer to clinical age ( as calculated from the last menstrual period, LMP) and not the actual age of the embryo !
