Hi Aisha,

Your perception about ultrasound scan and its safety in pregnancy is wrong.

Ultrasound is one of the best investigating modalities used in pregnancy with adverse effects almost nil.

There is no harm in getting it done and it is done routinely in all pregnant women to check for fetal well being.

Hope this helps.
