  • I had one but it was because we were trying to get an accurate due date. He was still just a little lima bean so I can't tell you how clear they are. But it was very comfy... like a dildo... with cold lube...

  • It's not that bad, If you had sex... you can handle it! LOL. Sorry but it's true, it's just a skinny thing, so ya know what i'm saying....
    Anyways, it is a very good way to see the baby in early pregnancy and if early enough, it's the only way

  • its done by the same type of machine and honestly in early pregnancy you will think you are looking at a lima bean on screan LOL not much to see till your 20week u/s. Dependong on how far you are you can atleast see the tiny heart beating away though.
    Its not uncomfortble and yes they can take a picture and print it out for you.

  • I had one early in my pregnancy and it was not uncomfortable at all (physically anyway!) They put a condom on a long ultrasound probe and insert it. Then as it is moved around, it shows the scans just like a reg ultrasound. I don't remember getting any pics because it was so early. Nothing to be concerned about, really.

  • I had the v.u/s every week for the first 8 weeks and then regular u/s every 2 weeks thereafter (high risk pregnancy). It's a little uncomfortable. It is a great way to see the heartbead early in the pregnancy, but the picture is not very clear. I have ones ranging from a little blob to a gummy bear. I didn't get any clear pictures until the regular ultrasound.

  • Depends if you have a sadist doing your transvaginal US. I have had many done and it is a long wand (think dildo-ish) inserted into the vagina. If the tech is rough, it will hurt. I had a tech that I told when she was done, she should of bought me flowers. Not to be graphic, it was a medical rape via US. If the tech is skilled, it is a simple proceedure. Good luck.
