Do I have to have an ultrasound at 11 weeks gestation?

If you are pregnant and have not yet had an ultrasound, you should visit your gynecologist to check that everything is going well and follow his or her instructions.

If you have already had your first ultrasound in a previous week, it is advisable to wait until week 12 to have the first trimester ultrasound, in which the fetal nuchal translucency is measured and the combined screening is performed.
