•your pregnancy is earlier than you calculated and you are less than 7 weeks gestation (this is especially common with ladies who have an irregular cycle) •limited visibility due to a high body mass index (BMI) •limited visibility due to a retroverted uterus (when the womb tilts backwards) If this happens it may be necessary for us to contact your local early pregnancy assessment unit (EPAU) or repeat your scan, at no additional cost, around 1-2 weeks later.
If necessary and with your permission they may contact your local hospital early pregnancy assessment unit (EPAU), maternity unit or your GP so that a medical follow-up can be made.
Please therefore, try and drink around 1 pint of water 1 hour prior to your scan.
