What do the test results mean?
A pregnancy ultrasound can show if the baby is growing in a healthy manner with no
visible problems. It shows that the baby is in a healthy position. It also shows that the mother
has a healthy-appearing placenta with high enough amniotic fluid levels.
Healthy ultrasound results do not guarantee a perfect baby or an uncomplicated birth.
But it can be helpful in telling the healthcare provider how a woman's pregnancy is progressing.
Abnormal results vary. A woman should discuss the results and any treatments
with her healthcare provider.
