A standard ultrasound exam checks the fetus’s physical development, screens for major congenital anomalies, and estimates gestational age. A standard ultrasound exam also can provide information about the following:

  • The fetus’s position, movement, breathing, and heart rate
  • An estimate of the fetus’s size and weight
  • The amount of amniotic fluid in the uterus
  • The location of the placenta
  • The number of fetuses

If the fetus is in a good position, it may be possible to tell the sex.
