Ultrasounds are performed periodically during your pregnancy to monitor your baby’s progress.


Many parents can start with a quick peek early in pregnancy to verify the baby’s gender and see the fetal movement. The ideal time to see if it is a girl or a boy is between 16 to 26 weeks. If you want to know who the baby looks like, just come back around 27 to 36 weeks. Then you will be able to see clear pictures of your baby’s face. Sometimes you can catch the baby moving and even sucking a thumb!
