Do you get to hear the heartbeat at 12 week scan?
The sonographers will have the ultrasound screen angled so they can examine your baby carefully during the scan (NHS, 2017). But they might be able to turn the screen to show you the moving pictures. You and anyone else with you might be able to hear the heartbeat, as well as the whoosh of the blood flow to your baby.
Can I eat before 12 week scan?
Empty your bladder 90 minutes before exam time, then consume one 8-ounce glasses of fluid (water, milk, coffee, etc.) about an hour before exam time. We recommend a two-piece outfit so we can access your abdomen without you removing your clothing. You may eat normally prior to having a fetal ultrasound.
