So far I've had internal cause my bladder was so full on 1st one and it was really painful and it took her a while to find baby which just made me more nervous. Ended up empyting bladder and having internal and she found the baby right away.
Since then I've been for 2 more scans and always just go with an empty bladder and get internal and the baby comes up on screen in a second.
Not sure if it makes much of a difference to quality of scans? Mine have always been pretty clear.
Didn't know whether to go for external at 12 weeks though.
What are your thoughts?
I've attached my scan pics so you can see what they look like from internal scans, if you like attach your's too and let us know if they are internal or external?
In my personal opinion, I prefer the internal scans. When I had my scan at 12+4, having a really full bladder just hurt way too much. I emptied and had internal - the images were far clearer and it just made the whole experience far less uncomfortable and I could relax far more. Pic is of internal scan
I had an internal one on Friday as they have been worried about ectopic, they couldnt see anything other than a tiny 4mm dot though which they "think" might be my pregnancy! I have another one booked Monday so I am really, really hoping to see something!
I'd go for another internal if I were you, when I had first scan they did external first and she said I can see a sac but not sure what's in it! I burst out crying but as soon as she did internal we saw yolk sac and baby measuring 7mm. Fingers crossed for your scan on Monday, did they locate the 4mm in the uterus?
yes, the little dot they could see was in the uterus, they just werent 100% it was a gestational sac but she said everything else looks clear. and I've had no other ectopic symptoms so I am thinking positive and just assuming my pain is normal pregnancy stuff
