If you have recently taken a pregnancy test and the results are positive, you may be eligible for an ultrasound. An ultrasound procedure can tell you some important information about your pregnancy and can help you in the decision-making process. Having an ultrasound performed will tell you how far along you are in your pregnancy, whether there is a fetal heartbeat and where the pregnancy is developing. All of this is important to know to help determine if you have a viable pregnancy.
