Especially if this is your first pregnancy, you may also be unsure as to when is the earliest you could have your first scan. Normally this 1st trimester scan is undertaken from 6 to 12 weeks. These weeks refer to the gestational age of your baby, and what this means is that the date is taken from your last period. One of the main reasons to undertake this scan is to confirm if your baby’s heartbeat is present. Also this first pregnancy scan is when we should be able to see how many babies are in your uterus, for those of you who are pregnant with multiples. Of course you will want to know your estimated due date, and we can also give you this information at the early pregnancy scan.
If you have heard the term nuchal fold scan but aren’t entirely sure what this scan entails and whether you should have one, then this video will help you understand why some women choose to have this scan, that is also called a nuchal translucency test. The video features another of our consultants, Professor Fionnuala Mc Auliffe. This is the spot which is called the nuchal fold. The sonogram can measure this fluid between the 11 to 14 week period, and it may make the fetus? As well as the scan, you will go for a blood test, which you will ideally do around 10 days before you come into the clinic for your scan.
When you get the result, you will be told a number such as 1 in 100, 1 in 500, 1 in 5000, and depending on the result you can then decide if you should go for a more definitive diagnostic test. Our team will, of course, help you fully understand the implications of your result. Would you like to know more about the Harmony Pre-Natal Test?

Descriptions of women used in men’s magazines are indistinguishable from views expressed by convicted rapists, researchers found in a new study. When presented with quotes from both, some men actually found themselves identifying more with the views of the sex offender than those espoused by the magazines, it was found. Psychologists say that the study highlights the danger of the sexualisation of women in the media and called for moves to deal with the issue.
In the study, men aged between 18 and 46 were shown quotes about women from leading lads’ mags FHM, Loaded, Nuts and Zoo. They were also given quotes made in interviews with convicted rapists. They were then asked which comments they identified most with, with the majority choosing those made by the rapists rather than the magazine. After being told which quotes were from lads’ mags the surveyed men said they identified more with these – even when they were misled and the quotes were actually from rapists. In a separate group, including women, the participants were asked to rank the comments on how derogatory they were. The results found the magazine descriptions more demeaning than those from the sex offenders, reports the British Psychological Society’s British Journal of Psychology. I think if a law is passed there should be a dress code.
