During the scan, the sonographer will measure parts of your baby's body, to see how well he is growing.
The sonographer will measure your baby's: The measurements should match up to what's expected for your baby, depending on when his due date is.
If you haven't already had a scan in your pregnancy, the sonographer will check that there is only one baby, and confirm your due date.
The main purpose of the scan is to check that your baby is developing normally, rather than whether you're expecting a boy or girl.
However, you may want to know your baby's gender or ask for a photo of your scan.
After you’ve seen your baby on the screen, some sonographers will turn the screen away for the rest of the scan, and show you views at the end.
Some hospitals have a second monitor at the foot of the couch, so you can watch the entire scan.
