If the pregnancy test showed a positive result, you can go through ultrasound examination to confirm the fact of pregnancy and evaluate the pregnancy development. At the 5th week of pregnancy ultrasound examination will show where the fetus was fixed in the uterus, or identify ectopic pregnancy. In some cases, using ultrasound examination at the 5th week of pregnancy it is possible to see how the heart of the future baby beats.

But more often gynecologist sends future mother to make ultrasound examination a little bit later, when registering to the antenatal clinic.
