How far along am I?

Your pregnancy is more than just two lines on a stick.
Learn more with an ultrasound!

A pregnancy test checks for the pregnancy hormone (HCG). It does not tell you how far along you are. Measuring your due date by your last period can be inaccurate because cycles can be irregular. An ultrasound accurately measures how far along you are.

Other important reasons for an ultrasound are:

  • To confirm you are still pregnant (miscarriage naturally happens about 20-25% of the time)
  • To check if the pregnancy is in the uterus (a pregnancy in your tube is life threatening)
  • To check for a heartbeat
  • To see if there is normal development
  • To meet the state requirement for a pre-abortion ultrasound
