    You shouldnt do .. dont think they do internals right up until the end when they need to chick. A lot of it is to do with avoiding risk of infection and whanot

    No, you wont be examined, it is like a 12 week scan but a lot more advanced and takes a lot longer. Good luck and don't worry. :)

    I didn't. I haven't had an internal yet but I'm not that bothered about them as I am sure we'll have a few faces down there when the time comes lol
