For many women, especially after 8 weeks gestation, sufficient information about the baby may be obtained with transabdominal ultrasound only however, in the early pregnancy, the developing embryo is very small (at 6 weeks gestation, the baby is only 5-9mm long) and a transvaginal ultrasound may be required to get a better image of the baby. It is recommended that all pregnant women have a scan in the first trimester at around 12 weeks of pregnancy to confirm their dates first trimester ultrasonic scans may show 'soft' markers for chromosomal abnormalities, such as an increased fetal nuchal translucency (back of the neck) to enable detection of down's syndrome fetuses.
