A sonogram is the most reliable method of dating a pregnancy; a trained ultrasound technician will perform your sonogram. Although you may have had a sonogram elsewhere, we always perform our own sonogram.

The length of the pregnancy is based on the date of your last menstrual period and not from the date of conception. Therefore, if you think you conceived 8 weeks ago, your last menstrual period was probably 10 weeks ago and you would be considered 10 weeks pregnant. If the sonogram indicates you are above 12 weeks, you will require a procedure called Dilation and Evacuation (D&E).
