Does anyone know?

I'm about 13 weeks pregnant and I'm having an ultrasound tomorrow, for genetic screening. Do you know if they will be doing a vaginal ultrasound where they go up with the scope or will they do an external ultrasound?

  • I think it will be external ultrasound. My OB only does vaginal ultrasound if you have been having problems such as bleeding. Good luck!

  • My OB only does intervaginal US when I dont drink enough water and they dont have a really clear picture, but personally I would rather the vaginal one anyday, My tummy is so sensitive that when they push it hurts. :(

  • None of us can really know unless we have been to your doctor. I think the last vaginal ultrasound I had I was 12 weeks 3 days. It depends on the doctor.
