What is the pregnancy scan procedure? Lump on the stomach

Hi, I am 11 weeks & 1 day pregnant. I was wondering how I go about booking my scan (i live in Stoke-on-Trent) and what is the scan procedure? And what stage does a woman start showing ? also I can feel the changes in my stomach; a hard lump the size of a golf ball also another lump ish what moves, what could these be? And at what date can I find out the sex? Also what would the fetus look like at this stage of pregnancy? Thanks. Steph

Thank you for your query.
At 11 weeks the fetus is only a few centimetres long.
you need to consult a gynecologist and book your scan
the scan procedure is a simple ultrasound that would be done abdominally now since you are already 11 weeks pregnant.
A woman starts showing in the second trimester after 14 - 16 weeks.
You cannot feel lumps or balls right now, as the uterus is still a pelvic organ.
You can easily know the fetal sex as early as 12 weeks onwards.
take care
