Is Abdominal Ultrasound safe for Pregnant woman?

I have hep B and my doctor ordered an abdominal ultrasound for me after my blood test came back saying my liver is abnormal.  I'm just wondering is it safe for me to go through that since I am 6 months pregnant.

ultrasounds are used for diagnostic purposes in pregnancy. My GUESS is that it would be safe, especially if they are aware you are pregnant and I am sure that they do if you are six months!

Good luck
