Hi everyone! FINALLY my first OB appt/scan has arrived!!! We go in in the morning and I am so excited I can barely stand it. When I was pregnant with my son, I had my first scan at around the same time...just short of 10 weeks. They did a transvaginal ultrasound at that time, and the rest were normal belly ultrasounds. I have several friends who had the same experience. My best friend is also pregnant (YAY!!!!!! ) and is 2 weeks further along than me. She has had her 1st scan and they did it normal, on her belly..no transvaginal ultrasound. So my question is, is one way more common than the other? My impression was the 1st scans are always vaginal but now in talking to her I'm wondering if it is a doctor thing or what. At first I thought maybe it was because I am a bigger girl, but some of my other friends are way tiny and still got them vaginally. We are both in the midwest so I don't think it's a location thing. Thoughts? Just wondering what to expect tomorrow as I have a different doctor than I had with my son. Noone told me I needed a full bladder or anything so I'm just curious what they're going to do (I'd hate to get there and them do a belly and not be able to see anything because my bladder's not full or something! ). Thanks!!
