Usually there are 3- 4 Ultrasound scans done. One in early pregnancy (6-10 weeks) to check the foetal heart rate and how many babies a mother is carrying. Second one is done around week 12 to check for any chromosomal abnormalities. This is a crucial scan. The third one is around week 18 called the Anomaly scan to check the babys vital organs, amniotic fluid level and the growth. The fourth scan is around week 28-38 to check the well being of the baby. In case of any complications more scans may be suggested by the doctor.
