Planned Parenthood of Illinois is now offering Ultrasound Dating services to find out how far along you are in your pregnancy. In the same appointment, we can also:
- Assess the size of the fetus. The fetus is measured from one end to the other (crown-rump-length, or CRL). This will determine your approximate due date.
- Assess the location of the pregnancy. The pregnancy normally develops in the uterus, within the endometrium (the lining of the uterus). Sometimes a pregnancy may not be developing in the correct place (an ectopic pregnancy). The most common location for an ectopic pregnancy is the fallopian tube.
- Assess the gestation sac. The fetus is growing inside a small sac, called the gestation sac. The size and appearance of this sac will be assessed.
- Assess the number of fetuses.
- Assess the fetus' heartbeat. We will confirm the presence of a heartbeat in the fetus and measure the heart rate. The heart rate of fetuses is much quicker than adults.
We will provide you with a few photos if we can capture a good image. The service is available for only $100 at the following locations:
