Morphological Ultrasound of the 1st Trimester

During the 9 months that a normal pregnancy lasts the woman makes several ultrasound scans, at least 3, one in each trimester of pregnancy, and the morphological ultrasound of the first trimester is one of the most awaited by the future parents.

Morphological Ultrasound of the 1st Trimester

In a “normal”, low-risk pregnancy, three ultrasound scans are performed, the first one between 11 and 14 weeks, the second between 20 and 24 weeks and the third between 30 and 32 weeks.

For some parents the ultrasound of the first trimester is the first time they will see the child and although the embryo is only slightly more than 5 cm it is possible to see most of the organs. It is one of the most important ultrasounds because it allows to check the vitality of the fetus and still detect some problems of malformation.

Morphological ultrasound of the first trimester

Morphological ultrasound of the 1st trimester is an ultrasound performed between 11 and 13 weeks. In this examination the ultrasound pregnancy data is studied, the fetal morphology is studied and the nuchal translucency (TLN) is measured, that is, the thickness of the nape of the neck, which, if increased, may indicate a possible Down syndrome.

We parents, when it comes to sonography we can not dazzle great details in this echo, but professionals in this area can detect a number of important details such as:

  • Nasal bone
  • Nuchal translucency (TN)

It allows to verify the amount of liquid in the nape of the fetus, at this time the value should be between 4.5 cm and 8.4 cm from the head to the buttock. An altered value implies amiocentesis.

Also analyzed are the chest, heart and heartbeats, and the upper and lower limbs arms, hands, legs and feet.

  • Check your eyes and face.

This ultrasound also makes a more accurate pregnancy dating and determines the DPP. Expected date of birth, and this date is taken into account until the end of pregnancy, as there may be later changes.

Together with the morphologic ultrasound of the first trimester, combined biochemical screening is performed, a blood test that allows for the screening of chromosomal abnormalities, making a calculation that indicates the increased or decreased risk of trisomy (13, 18 and 21).

It is one of the most important moments of pregnancy, it is free and a right for all pregnant women. On this ultrasound it is still possible to give a guess about the sex of the baby, especially if it is a cheeky boy.
