I am going in for a 2nd trimester evaluation ultrasound on May 3rd. The doctor has me doing a transvaginal ultrasound and not a pelvic one. Anyone know why? I thought pelvic was the norm for this U/S.

Hmm.. Are you overweight? Sometimes they can't get accurate measurements with an abdominal one if you are. Maybe your doc is weird lol good luck!

They wont do your anatomy scan until 20w+ most likely. Did you have an early ultrasound or is this the first?

That is weird, but different strokes for different folks. I had transvaginal ultrasounds the first couple times because it was really early in pregnancy. After that, it has been strictly tummy. :) Ask your Dr why. It is your right, afterall your paying him. :)
