Caption

Early pregnancy: coloured ultrasound scan showing the gestation sac (small dark circle, centre left half circled in pink) in the uterus at an early phase (4-6 weeks) of pregnancy. The smooth blue region at right represents a full bladder; the pear-shaped body of the uterus is visible below it at bottom left. The cervix is towards the bottom right. At this stage of the pregnancy all the internal organs of the embryo such as liver, pancreas, stomach and heart have begun to form. It is during this period that the embryo is at the greatest risk of developing birth defects caused by abnormal genetic or external factors.
