The ultrasound probe is simply moved across your belly to create pictures of your baby.
How early can you see a pregnancy on a scan?

You at 4 weeks
Most women confirm the pregnancy with a pregnancy test. You can work out the date when your baby is due. This date may be changed when you have an ultrasound scan.
What is it called when your pregnant but there is no baby?
A blighted ovum is a pregnancy where a sac and placenta grow, but a baby does not. It is also called an ‘anembryonic pregnancy’ as there is no embryo (developing baby). Because a blighted ovum still makes hormones, it can show up as a positive pregnancy test.
Can an empty sac still have a baby?
Yes. This is dependant upon the size of the sac.
