First Check: Pregnancy test is positive for menstrual delay and first control of pregnancy is performed. In the first ultrasound examination, it is checked whether the gestational sac is in the uterus. If the gestational sac is not seen in the uterus, an ectopic pregnancy should be performed.
Week 6: After the pregnancy sac is fixed in the uterus, vaginal ultrasound is detected in the embryo at the 6th week. If the heartbeat cannot be seen by vaginal ultrasound at the end of the 7th week, pregnancy must be terminated. After the heartbeat is observed, the first tests are started for the healthy progression of pregnancy.
Blood Count: It is a test performed to prevent iron deficiency during pregnancy and to supplement iron if necessary.
TSH: It is a test for the detection of previously unknown thyroid disease that may occur actively during pregnancy. Thyroid disease is very important because it affects the development of the baby as well as the mother.
Blood group: It is a test to take the necessary precautions for blood conflicts that may arise from the parents.
Torch Determination: Toxoplasma and Rubella (Rubella), such as important and active infections that can lead to termination of pregnancy is detected in the early period to initiate the treatment process.
Serology: HIV and Hepatitis B tests, which are very common in our country, are very important for the health of the baby even after pregnancy.
Full Urine Assay: Occult urinary tract infections during pregnancy are the most common cause of early miscarriages. Therefore, a full urinalysis must be performed.
Week 8: On ultrasound, the heart rate is confirmed again. Because of multiple factors, the embryo may stop heartbeat.
Week 12: In this week's examination, nuchal translucency measurement and the highest sensitivity Down syndrome screening are performed by double test.
Week 16: This is the period in which you can learn the sex of your baby. If you prefer, you can have triple or quadruple test applications in this period.
Week 22: Detailed ultrasonography is performed this week. Particularly, this week is preferred because cardiac anomalies can be diagnosed more clearly starting from this week.
24-28. Weeks: 75 g oral glucose tolerance test is performed for screening for pregnancy diabetes.
Week 28: As of this week, ultrasound controls are started to be performed more frequently. Preferably 30, 32, 34, 36 weeks. Because growth retardation begins and becomes apparent during these weeks. Early detection of growth retardation, until the baby's loss in the womb; also protects from many problems.
Week 36: This week you can learn your baby's estimated weight and posture.
In addition, the Doppler examination of the umbilical cord after the 32nd week will tell you whether your baby has enough oxygenation in the womb for health. If growth retardation is detected, another benefit of doppler ultrasound is revealed. In infants with developmental retardation, the natural mechanism is to protect the brain, the most important organ. At this point, it is decided whether the brain is protected by making middle cerebral artery doppler with doppler usg, that is, growth retardation has started to make advanced distress and birth decision is made.
